Another splendid day over Nuremberg and a long weekend ahead, due to a public holiday on Monday. This iPhone panorama shows the castle gardens of Nuremberg’s Kaiserburg (Imperial Castle). Have I mentioned that I rarely shoot panoramas with my cameras anymore? Shooting a sequence of overlapping images and stitching them in Photoshop or Lightroom isn’t really worth the effort, as in most situations the iPhone panorama function does just fine.
This is the view from the city walls, where the wall walks atop the fortifications provide for a splendid view across the Tiergärtnertorplatz towards the Imperial Castle.
This photo was taken with the Olympus OM-D E-M1 with the mZuiko 14-150mm F/4.0-5.6 travel zoom at 1/320 sec, f/8 and ISO200, focal length was 14mm.
I processed the RAW image in Lightroom, mainly opening up the shadows in the wall walk. It is a good example how much tonal range you can capture with a RAW and make visible in post processing.
I wish everyone a peaceful and relaxing weekend!
