Morning blue hour on this pretty bridge over the River Main. It reminded me of the Charles Bridge in Prague, but with a fraction of the tourists. It is difficult to see on the photo, but the statues of the saints on the bridge were all donned with anti corona face masks.
Well this is a DRI Panorama I shot this weekend in Würzburg. I'm very happy about how it came out because I didn't plan for this. Initially I was planning to do some Landscpae shooting this weekend. I did some scouting in the evening and wanted to get up early to catch a nice sunrise.. Well clock was ringing at 5am but when I looked out -> RAIN :-( These where not the conditions I had in mind so I went back to bed. I was a little dissapointed because the whole day was rainy. But in the evening when I was driving back to Erlangen I noticed a nice sky building up when I was near Würzburg. I already had Würzburg on my list for some time and headed there. Fortunately I had my Panoramic head with me so I could take in the whole sunset. Even better exacly when the sunstar showed as you see in the image, was the only time when the bridge was nearly emptied and no groups of people passing by. So no retouching needed here :-)
For the DRI blending of the separate images I used enfuse -> see my blog for detailed tutorial on how to use it. The panorama stitching I did with hugin. I think there will be a tutorial soon ;-) I let the horizon bend a little to get an even stonger center and all lines leading in there.
It was taken on Old Bridge at early morning.
Würzburg is a city in the region of Franconia, Northern Bavaria, Germany. Located on the Main River, it is the capital of the Regierungsbezirk Lower Franconia.
