1423 – Empire

As usual I am a little behind on schedule. Let me show you one image taken on Monday afternoon in the park of the imperial castle of Schönbrunn. The building is an over-sized pavilion on top of the hill overlooking the castle. It’s called “Gloriette”.

Light on Monday was brilliant, the air was clean, and so it cost me quite some work in Photoshop until I arrived at this HDR-like interpretation. It’s not HDR though, it is simply one image taken through different versions from RAW, Topaz Adjust (or Detail? I can’t remember) and some other tricks.

The Song of the Day is “Empire” from David Byrne’s 2004 album “Grown Backwards”. I’ve uploaded it to YouTube, successfully one more time 🙂

  1. Wow! I love how the light makes the building’s “crowning glory” stand out and glisten. I also like your low point of view. Too bad there has to be a modern intrusion.

    1. Haha, I really was lucky to have no person in view. Of course I could have tried to take out the case of the lights that illuminate the building by night, but that’s too much surgery for my taste. It would have been possible though.
