Ok, to tell the truth, I also got over the railing to get few shots without it :) Better said, I walked around it, as I didn’t want to climb with my camera gear. One always has to be careful. But I also liked this view, with the railing in front, gives a nice foreground object and it also creates a nice leading line that curves in the photo. One tends to think about the composition all the time :)

This is a HDR from 4 exposures, created in Oloneo Photoengine, finished in Photoshop.
