I was thrilled by an article in the August issue of NaturFoto about long-exposure night shots. So I took my camera and a tripod last night and walked up to Waldhausen to try it out myself. I wanted to know, how good the image quality would be with such long exposures. To be honest, I was really stunned seeing the results. It was really, really pitch-dark, I nearly couldn’t find my camera in the end. But there was still enough light for the sensor to provide nice looking and colorful photos.
The photos shown here are nearly untouched-out-of-cam. I only fixed the whitebalance. Next time I have to pay more attention to leveling the camera.
Both shots are made northwards. The bright horizon is Stuttgart.
