Michael Wilson - Cecilienhof Palace in Potsdam

Where the conference was held 1945. Taken July 2019 1/250 f10 18mm . Taken as RAW and lighting altered in DPP - Canon's free software. I like the structure and detail. I have it framed hanging on a wall.

I used this technique to smooth the water and clouds giving a soft feel to the image.

Nikon D7100 f/22 1/10 second exposure 90mm


Lindsay Southgate - Icelandic Red Church in a snowstorm

f7.1 1/800th sec 500 iso. This image was taken in swirling snow and high winds so had to be taken at a very fast shutter speed to remain sharp.
