Soft sunset in Warsaw

Daily photo - Soft sunset in Warsaw

Yesterday I had a chance to shoot in Warsaw with fellow photographer from Germany - +Matthias Haeussler . As there was some chance for interesting sunset we climbed St. Anne's Church viewing terrace as it offers some very nice view over the Old Town of Warsaw. It took a long wait before sunset actually began but when it did it was really beautiful with very nice soft colours in the clouds. I was a bit disappointed with light which was pretty flat most of the time but all in all, the conditions were pretty nice and offered some interesting photo opportunities.

I'm pretty happy how this photo turned out with all those colours in the sky. Even though it is another HDR photo, I tried to keep the processing very natural to avoid loosing this amazing softness I saw when capturing this image. I hope you like it :)
