This is the church in the city of Cologne. I think one of the beat I have ever seen in Germany. nothing beats is might and magnificance. This picture was taken at a long exposure of 30 seconds with a low ISO of 100 to maintain quality and an f stop of 5.6 to have a more flay image as the distance between the bridge and the church is quite big and a higher f stop makes either of the subjects go out of focus because of increase in the depth of the field.
Great shot. Were you using a shutter release? I know most modern DLSRs go to 30 second exposure max as a default, but a shutter release would allow you to keep the shutter open as long as you want. That way you could crank the aperture to something like f/32, Iso of 100, and an extended exposure to get all layers of the photograph crisp. :)
@Huna no. ..I don't the thing is I don't know of a good software to deal with RAW images
@dillonk yeah this visit to cologne was too hasty just forgot it
Are you shooting in raw?
I tend not to pay attention to the exposure scale as that is calculated by what the camera thinks should be the best exposure. What the camera thinks is right isn't always what you are going for, much like autofocus. You should always have your shutter release on you! It is such a handy tool and so small, it can easily fit in your camera bag.
