    Spent a couple of hours last night standing the opposite side of the Rhine from the cathedral in Cologne.

    I really should have used a tripod. However, all I had with me was a bean bag and a sturdy wall. Did I do ok?

    Very nice shots. The bridge is quite an interesting structure. The cathedral looks wonderful in #1. I'd say your beanbag did you well.

    Thanks for your kind words one and all.

    These were just a couple I tinkered with last night. I have a whole bunch more that need to be evaluated over the weekend.

    Thanks guys. I have a bunch I have yet to PP. I won't bore you too much tho...
     
  16. Very nice job with the Dom Mart!
    I was just there a few weeks ago but alas, not able to do any night shots.
    You've shown me what I missed.

    The last one is my favorite too.

    Hope you enjoyed a few glasses of Kölsch while you were there :)

    Not bad the horizon is a little off on the first one.
