The impressive skyline of Frankfurt am Main’s financial district is depicted in this picture. The skyscrapers are the regional office buildings of some major banks (Volksbank, Sparkasse and Deutsche Bank). The bird’s eye perspective was achieved by taking the photo from the viewing platform on top of the Maintower directly into the setting sun.
This image was generated from a high dynamic range (HDR) picture created by fusing three distinct exposures of the same scenery together. With this technique it was possible to conserve rich details in the dark (buildings, skyscrapers) as well as in the bright (sun, rays of sunlight) areas.
