A photo from the beginning of my HDR adventure. As you can guess, I ran a little bit out of time over the holidays, so I have to go a bit through my archive and show photos from the time when I was making my first little HDR steps. It’s nice to look back on them and see how much I learned in the last months. Wonder what new stuff I’ll learn in 2013.
The real challenge about this photo, apart from the obvious that it’s taken against the sun, was that it’s taken from a moving ship. We took a tour around the port on some strange tourist boat which gave me that kind of unique angle to shoot the Dar Pomorza in Gdynia. Read more!
One of the first days when I got my tripod I walked with my girlfriend along Lake Tegel (Tegeler See) to use it a bit and try to take some nice shots. We didn’t catch too many good pictures that day, but with this one I’m happy. It’s the central point on the Greenwich Promenade in Tegel where people sometimes come to rest a bit after work and enjoy the sunset.
That Beauty is over 100 years old. It was in 1909 when it was built in Hamburg and named Prinzess Eitel Friedrich. After WW I the ship was taken as reparation by Great Britain and brought to France. But because they didn’t want to refurbish it, they sold it and the buyer was Poland. In Poland the Dar Pomorza was used as a training ship for long time and today it is a Museum ship in Gdynia.
