It was quite a bit of luck involved to get this picture of the fireworks over the Rudolfinum in Prague (Praha). We just went down to the bank of Vltava to take a picture of the Charles Bridge. Once I was done with that, my girlfriend thought that it would also be a nice position to capture the Rudolfinum. So she used my camera, brought it in the right position and started taking the usual three photos for the HDR. The camera managed to take two of the pictures and then the fireworks started and we’ve had the camera in the perfect position.
To process the picture I took two shots without fireworks and one with the fireworks in it and put them together in Photoshop.
