Christmas Decorations in Warsaw

Daily photo - Christmas Decorations in Warsaw

High Dynamic Range photo of Warsaw Old Town during Christmas.


Christmas is one of the nicest periods of the year to capture city photos. All those decorations, lights and sometimes even snow (it's very rare to have snow in Warsaw during Christmas - we usually get more serious snowfalls several weeks later) make the streets very atmospheric and beautiful.

High dynamic range photo from this post was taken 2 years ago, I didn't have a chance to capture this year's decoration yet but I intend to do that in just a couple of days. I expect them to be similar with one change - Christmas Market isn't located in the Old Town anymore. Unfortunately as it was really cool and fitted well there. You can see how it looked in this post.

If you would like to create such images yourself, make sure to read my free HDR tutorial where I show how to do that.
