Moody Christmas Tree

Moody Christmas
1/60 sec | f/1.8 | ISO 1600 | 25 mm

Who says that Christmas photographs have to be all colorful and bright? Here is my version of a moody Christmas tree. Taken on the walls of the Imperial Castle Nuremberg with my Olympus PEN-F and the mZuiko 25mm F/1.8.

Image specs 1/60 sec @ f/1.8 and ISO 1600. Heavily desaturated (it is not a B&W conversion) in Lightroom Classic. I also introduced some grain and burned (brightened) the heavy rain clouds around the tree.

I felt like being moody today.

To everyone out there, but particularly to all the many wonderful people I’ve had the blessings to meet (at least virtually) during my first two years of blogging on the “Streets of Nuremberg”, I wish a peaceful Christmas and much love and laughters together with your family and friends.

Last night, after shutting down my business laptop for good for 2017, the significant other and myself headed into Nuremberg’s Old Town for some Bratwurst and Mulled Wine. To unwind and get into the right Christmas spirit. We took a walk in the alleys below the Imperial Castle to look at a few Christmas trees the city has put up. I took along the Olympus PEN-F and the 12mm F/2 and 25mm F/1.8 primes. For a few more images continue after the jump…. Continue reading “Getting ready for Christmas”

Christkindlesmarkt

Christkindlesmarkt | Nuremberg | 2016

While today it is pouring down once more, yesterday was a glorious December Saturday. Although we are far from having any snow (and the temperatures felt more like spring) it was still a special atmosphere on Nuremberg’s famous Christmas Market, the “Christkindlesmarkt” as it is called locally. It takes place in the four weeks leading up to Christmas (Adventszeit) on the main Market Square in front of the famous Frauenkirche (built in the 14th century).
