Great use of contrast in the black and white to emphasize the strong lines in the architecture!

Behind The Lens

Location

This is the "Landhausschiff" (statehouse"ship"), in the government district of Lower Austria in St. Pölten. To the right there is the "Klangturm" (lit. "sound-tower"), which houses a exhibition of sound installations.

Time

16:03:21

Lighting

I had to wait for the perfect cloud-cover: not too dense and not to sparse to get the desired streaking of the sky.

Equipment

Nikon D800 with the Nikkor 14-24 ƒ2.8. A sturdy tripod and two ND-filters: 1000x and 64x combined.

Inspiration

I wanted to blur the sky and get some surreal streaks.

Editing

Lightroom and Photoshop. Selective noise reduction (you get a lot of noise in a 10 min exposure) and conversion to b&w with a filter.

In my camera bag

The Nikkor 14-24 ƒ2.8 is my goto-lens when it comes to architecture. A sturdy tripod helps a lot to compose the shot and minimize shake for the long exposures.

Feedback

Take your time and wait for the right clouds and wind. A good tripod and a cable-release is a must. Try to shoot with low ISO to minimize noise in your image.
