And I’m back from my short stay in Vienna. I took quite a lot of photos, and I hope at leas some of them are good :) But for today, I will show you one of the more crazier shots. This is the St. Charles Church in Vienna. This is a great photo spot, as the pond in front of it, is usually quite calm, and so creates a very nice reflection.
The church is usually lit by very strong lights in the evening, but right around midnight they are turned off. So this photo was taken from midnight until around 2:30 in the morning. Overall I took 200 photos for the star trails (I used 190 in the end, as few were side-lit by the moon) plus additional 2 shots with shorter exposure from which I darkened few spots on the buildings. I used a fisheye lens for this, as I wanted more of the sky in the shot, while still keeping the reflection. With the 16mm lens, I could get the whole reflection, but nothing more. I corrected the fisheye distortion partially in Lightroom and partially in Photoshop.
