Rooftops: Hamburg

What does a photographer do if stuck in a 5th office all day on his first (and likely only) visit  to Hamburg (and on a gray day at that).

He sees what is to be seen out the windows and snaps a few on short breaks in the meeting schedule. At lease that’s what I do.

Canon SD4000IS (which is great for this kind of spontaneous work) at 1) 90mm equivalent @ f5 @ 1/320th @ ISO 125 and 2) 106mm equivalent @ f5 @ 1/125th @ ISO 125. Programmed auto.

Both received a combination of Blackpoint right, added Clarity and Vibrance, and Sharpen narrow edges in Lightroom, as well as some distortion tweaking and slight cropping for composition.

From Germany and England 2010.

And then, of course, there is the classic out the windshield shot from the moving car. This one required considerable adjustment for perspective distortion as well a cropping for composition.

    I really like the colours and geometry in the second shot. The third shot is fantastic if it was taken from a moving car.

    What a pity you are so rushed. Germany is a wonderful country.
