This photo was taken on Saturday morning.It´s my second attempt at HDR photography.I´m not became suddenly a big fan of HDR,but I must admit that in some situations, this kind of pictures significantly improves their quality.One of these situation is a cloudy weather,where HDR could help to improve color saturation and lighting.

Not a big fan of HDR, but here the result is very appealing. The light and touches of colour on the various facades are great.
In itself the contrast between these two very different styles of architectue are the core of the picture & why I like it.

impressive composition, i like so much the right angle to form the two buildings and their strong contrast between ancient and modern, beautiful colors in the sky, great POV, very good work with the HDR and with the exposure...
have a good day,

A good hdr result with excellent light contrasts and superb sharpness. The soft pastel colors of the sunset enhance this shot. Superb shadow detail in the dark façade of the Köln cathedral. Tfs!

Ciewie wykonane zdjecia w ujeciu dwoch roznych architektur. Ciekawe ujecie, ciekawy punkt widzenia. Musze sie przyznac bez bicia, ale nie bardzo wiem co oznacza ten skrot HDR. Ciekawa twarz duszka nad ta najwyzsza kolumna hehehe. Moze tylko ja to widze. Podoba mi sie to zdjecie, jest poprostu inne, ciekawe.
Serecznie pozdrawiam i zycze milego WE,

Thank you very much for take my picture as favorite.
Nice contrast between the wonderful old entrance of the church and the modern building to the rightside is great
Excellent compositon with depth and perspective.
Sharpness and clarity are perfect.
Very well done, TFS.
Have a nice weekend,

i'm actually a big fan of HDR, i believe the overall depth and textures of a scene can be easier seen in HDR.
here, we get to see alot of detailing on the church, i'd like to see a full blown front on hdr shot of the church!
keep working on it.
danos (74020) 2012-02-25 8:58
nice and this second attempt using the HDR methond.I like the coexist of the new and the old as the charmy colour tints of the sky.
Have a good weekend,Danos
adramad (27556) 2012-02-25 10:32
Superb composition with the remarkable contrast between the two buildings so different, the stately home of the cathedral, leaving even more insignificant the current building we see in the background, the sky is beautiful and adds charm to a job with good management of light and color.
Have a nice weekend.

Wspania³e pezedstawienie trzech stylów architektonicznych,; wspania³y gotyk katedry, secesyjna stara kamienica i nowoczesny budynek z betonu iszk³a. Niesamowite niebo.
Perfekcyjna jako¶æ obrazu.
emka (58152) 2012-02-25 23:52
ja też nie jestem fanem zbyt intensywnego HDRu, choc często zdjęcia wychodzą bardzo efekowne. Udana próba. Ciekawe zdjęcie placu przed katedra, nioebo robi wrazenie.
fritzi007 (7580) 2012-02-26 2:26
für dieses Wetter sicher kein schlechtes Foto, mit guter Info. Aber auch mich interessieren mehr Fotos von Land und Leuten und Brauchtum. Wünsche mir von dir ein paar Fotos aus deiner Heimat Polen.
Royaldevon (17791) 2012-02-27 1:06
I have to agree with you. I think you have achieved a much better depth of colour with your HDR, in this situation. Like you, I am not a fan of it generally, for it seems to procuce unnatural colours.
A fine pov has confined the attention to the courtyard and buildings and used a novel use of thirds.
Have a good day,
eldancer1 (17064) 2012-02-27 18:28
Whoever built the building on the right has to be ashame to be building it next to this beautiful cathedral. Love the colors of the clouds. Good details. Very well done, tfs.
Zengi001 (2093) 2012-02-28 3:04
I like the soft lights and effect of th cloudy sky here!
Hansaphotos (5433) 2012-02-28 12:20
Another fine shot from the famous cathedral. You have managed the difficult light very well, and perhaps with a little help from the HDR treatment, we can enjoy the high degree of details here. A nice cut, but I agree with Craig that want to see the whole facade of the impressive building. However, in this shot we get a very good impression of the huge dimensions of the impressive cathedral, thanks to the surrounding buildings. A good idea to include some of the beautiful stonework as a foreground. Very nice work:) TFS. Have a nice evening.
Best regards, Erling

Nice shot. You are right about the HDR. Sometime it helps, like in this case, if you have strong contrast.
Must be used carefully. Here you made a very good job
Silvio1953 (98183) 2012-03-02 11:25
Ciao Krysztof, fascinating composition with fantastic architecture, great view of wonderful square, splendid light and colors, very well done my friend, have a good week end, ciao Silvio

I like this combination of colors and architectural details.
Well taken and well seen.
PecoBud (3778) 2012-03-14 17:59
Hello, great detail for little light. Awesome POV. Keep them coming!!
mauro61 (52527) 2012-03-15 2:48
la tonalità dà molta forza a questa immagine dove mi piace il rapporto tra la cattedrale e il palazzo.
Antico e moderno legati insieme sulla grande piazza,
mvdisco (16456) 2012-03-16 11:41
I am a big fan of HDR. picture and you are doing a great Job in this composition,
Wanderful contrast and light with the architecture and cloudy atmosphere,
great details of this beautiful cathedrale too,
Excellent Point of view and amazing shot..
all my compliments
lakshmip1949 (19110) 2012-03-23 19:51
I like the juxtaposition of this modern building and the old cathedral. The colors look to be soft. The details are well presented. The sky is spectacular with a bit of pinkish tones.
danyy (0) 2012-03-25 1:54
un ciel dramatique mais lumineux tout de même, pas de soleil et des lumières presque crépusculaires. Une photo très détaillée de la façade de cette cathédrale mais je dois avouer que j'aurais peut-être choisi un autre angle de prise de vue.
My best regards.
nikkitta (5886) 2012-03-25 15:10
Not very fun of HDR, but it works in some cases as in this capture,it helps to add contrast
Like the angle or POV chosen , just in the middle of the old and the modern
Well done, congrats
aliabazari (10105) 2012-03-29 17:52
Very beautiful and lovely. Well done.
My friend Krzysztof

Nice composition with an evolution of the architecture of this place from the left to the right original.
Belle composition avec une évolution de l'architecture de cette place de gauche à droite... original.
Joli cliché !
ikeharel (37356) 2012-04-05 9:27
I admit I am not a great fan of HDR's, prefer the natural light coindition, yet this image conveys a nice POV and early morning ambiance.
The facade of the Cathedral has a fine archi. details worth photo of it's own.
Nice effort made and applied.
ruisc_pt (10121) 2012-04-07 6:53
Fantastic scenario for this fantastic POV. Not bad for 2nd attempt.
lpi (4424) 2012-04-11 5:02
Ton point de vue sur ce contraste de l'architecture des bâtiments est réussi!
J'aime les couleurs et la lumière.
batalay (32860) 2012-05-02 20:47
You've captured a superb sky, while managing the light well on the facade of the Cathedral. Well done.
jmdias (45804) 2012-05-16 7:11
a curious framing catching the contrast of the huge cathedral and the modern buildings around. that corner of the sky with a rounded clouded is interesting too.
abmdsudi (26281) 2012-12-14 3:26
A cool shot so creatively captured allowing us to enjoy this amazing amounts of delicious details, the compo is balanced with lovely positioning and proportions in great depth of this fine architeture. Clarity and colors look natural with the sky offers a special treat there and the HDR pp appears to give this image an effective shot, Well done.

Good evening and all the best.

This is great, the atmosphere here is both calm and electric! I know that probably makes no sense, but it's the feeling I get by seeing this...maybe it's the HDR, maybe it's the stunning detail and architecture...but whatever it is, I like it! I'd be interested to see the original, I have to imagine there's still plenty of sharpness, contrast and mood to the scene. I think the open space being void of any people also makes for a bit of mystery...I mean, why wouldn't anyone want to be out to enjoy this moment, where are they?? :) Thanks for sharing this moment of solitude and serenity. Great work! Have a good day.
