  • Matthias Church in Budapest

    There is no doubt that the architecture of Budapest is one of the most beautiful in Europe. The first thing you might see on your arrival is the Hungarian Parliament. On the other side of the river, there is the Buda Castle where you can find a few more of the impressive constructions like the Fisherman’s Bastion and the Matthias Church.

    Even though you can appreciate all the architectural details at day light this place truly shines (literally) at blue hour when the exterior is illuminated producing great contrast against the dark blue sky.

    This photo was taken at late blue hour using the flowers as a foreground. Being so close to the flowers it was necessary to focus stack. The lights on the church were corrected by using darker exposures.

    Everything was edited in Lightroom and Photoshop:
