This is a shot from the balcony of my 6th floor flat in Freiburg. That's 7th floor if you think that ground level is the 1st floor (strage people :). There has been minimal PP here, the sky was this dark due to rain clouds, but the evening sun from behind me was making the roofs and trees glow.
The spires on the left of the shot are not of the famous Münster (you can just make this out in the dark on the right), but of the Herz-Jesu Kirche, another buitiful church that doesn't get nearly as much attention as the main tourist attractions as it is out of the centre past the train-station. A little bit of history; it was originally built at the end of the 19th century, partially destroyed by bombing in 1944, but re-inaugurated in 1952.

Marvelous contrast. Beautiful red colors and good light on the roofs gave a special effect to the pic. Undoubtely a very unique moment that was very well caught in this image.

Fantastic light - wonderful contrasts in light and colour and nice framing to emphasise this lovely church. Very nice Robert!

You took the picture in the right moment! The contrast is really extreme. Good work.

Superb light conditions you caught here, Robert. Quite difficult to manage; I like the strong contrast against the Rosskopf and of course to the Münster. Well done!
