Brandenburg Gate at Night


Berlin, Germany

January 7, 201718 mm: ISO 200: f/16: 2.5 secs.

Just a short walk from the Holocaust Memorial is the Brandenburg Gate.  I took a little while trying to come up with a good composition of the Gate.  There was not a lot of room directly in front unless I wanted to shoot at a steep angle and do a panorama.  That was not appealing given I had no feeling left in my hands after a day of shooting in negative temperatures.  Finally, I decided to sprint through traffic to get to the park and shoot some light trails of cars passing in front of the Gate.  Given that I only took one shot with cars passing in front, I am pleased with the results.  I made a second image when no cars were coming so I had a clean image to share as well.  That image is below and the settings were identical.
