I visited a small film festival whilst in Vienna, and part of the festival included this rather exciting lightshow, projected onto the front of the Rathaus (town hall). Tripod was with me, as it was night, so it was relatively easy to capture this slightly surreal image. Quite bright, so only a second's exposure on ISO 100 transparency film, later scanned on a Nikon dedicated film scanner to create a 109mb, 16 bit file.
Photoshop only used for cleaning and sizing.

complimenti per questo bello scatto che coglie un particolare momento della vita di Vienmna e del suo glorioso ed antico Rathaus.
Un insieme di sensazioni, di immagini e di colori molto gradevole e piacevole accompagnato dal cielo blu di una bella nottata.
Ciao e buona giornata

Great capture of the light show on the Rathaus.It gives the building really ghostly qualities. Great POV showing the beautiful ornate clock tower lit up against the night sky.
All the best.

Even in a city as architecturally rich as Vienna, the Rathaus stood out to me when I was there - gorgeous building, and very well used by the city. I was there in winter, and the grounds had been converted into a massive skate park with plenty of waffle stands and other activities around, all under this beautiful neo-gothic structure. Nice capture of it here. Sorry I can't offer smilies (all out), but I can certainly offer congrats on a nice shot.

This is an eye catcher as this shot shows your ability to keep up with the action and keep it sharp, the detail, colours and timing are all spot on. The scale of projected colour and light give it such a surreal feel but attractive enough to draw attentions. It's a fabulous impressionistic approach, what a fantastic sight. Excellent capture, Congrats.
