The Rhine Falls



This photo was the start of a great night, which I spent photographing the night sky. It's a great place with a thunderous noise from the waterfall and at this time of the day with almost no people. The Rheinfall is the second largest waterfall in europe.

The photo is a composition of three different exposures, for the sky, the water and the middle part with the castle and the trees.

Behind The Lens

Location
The Rhine Falls are one of the three biggest waterfalls in Europe. It's located at the north boundary of Switzerland near the village of Schaffhausen.
Time
I took this photo during blue hour in the evening.
Lighting
As my camera at this time had a very low dynamic range and most of the light came from where the sun did go down, I had to take several exposures to have every part of the photo in the right exposure because of the hight contrast of the scenery.
Equipment
I used my good old Canon 5d Mark II, the Canon EF 16-35 f4 and a tripod.
Inspiration
The rhine falls are really quite impressive and I already saw some amazing photos from this spot.
Editing
The photo is a composition of several exposures. Otherwise I did the general raw editing in camera raw.
In my camera bag
My basic equipment consist of the camera, the lens and the tripod. Additionally I use ND and polarisation filters.
Feedback
Use good equipment, take your time to wait for the right moment and keep yourself up to date with raw editing.
