Default Cityscape at Dusk!

At times I am so moved that I grab my camera and shoot through the car window at a traffic light to catch an attractive scene. Twilight to dusk can be magical.




Asher Kelman: Town Hall from santa monica Blvd

Beverly Hills December 2012


Hope we can travel around your favorite cities as the light disappears!

Obligatory Munich view (you have to climb 306 steps to see this).





Best regards,
Michael

Well then, Michael,

We'll have to return ASAP! I missed that on the last 2 visits! Stunning view and well worth the climb! Not clear which is the town Hall and which is the Church! What are the round dome towers on the left and the modern lit facility through glass? How did you capture this?

It is there - you only have to climb (and being there the right season helps as the opening hours of the church tower you have to climb do not always correlate with the blue hour).

A little research on a well known online encyclopedia yields these results.

I am slightly surprised that after 2+ visits you cannot identify these.

This and this.

Exif data is here - otherwise it was pretty straightforward.

Michael!

My visits to Munich were for a world cup football match and the art galleries and friends and never stopped for breath, just beer and food!

One more from Munich. This view is from Olympiapark across Munich towards the Alps a few days ago.




Best regards,

Michael,

City planning was more coordinated when the structures of the first image were built. At least they tried to make styles harmonious or complementary. The newer buildings seem more functional and minimalistic, like boxes of with lit windows. Still, the older medieval buildings beautify the skyline, one just has to notice them and lock into their presence.

Of course, I'm being sentimental, but more thought seems to have gone into the beauty of buildings hundreds of years ago than today!

I rediscovered this scene from my rented apartment over the Seine in 2011.

A delicately balanced exposure, in my opinion. How interesting, inclusion of the moon changes the whole story!

What a view! The way you have presented it gives the effect of a painting from the Realism era.
