Hofkirche by taenaron Hofkirche by taenaron
Hofkirche Dresden

One of the first shots I took with my 10-22mm lens one year back. It was one of the best decisions to buy the lens. It's worth every single € ;)

Hope you like it!

The very sight of an ordinate hallway can make a structure that much more memorable. From the large stone pillars carrying towering archways above the heads of all those walking amongst them, can give a place that much needed sense of scaling that helps it truly stand out in one's memories. However, capturing such a sight before is another story. With the proper camera and skill, this image can be forever held in the minds of its viewers as a true testament to the art of masonry. Hofkirche by 'taenaron, is a good example of what true architecture can look like and the right way to capture it.

Starting off from what you see, the perspective taken brings out all of the best of the location. The shot gives off a perfect view of the hallway as well as giving the interior structure of the building a good view of symmetry showing everything on even area; a basic style of photography but a very effective one. Although, I may be a bit peckish in this situation, but I would have like to see the image with a bit more contrast modification as well as a slight sharpening change which would bring out a lot more the singular elements as well as the smaller details in the image itself. Also, it would have been nice if the hallway had a depth of field effect on it, which would make the image that much more dynamic feeling to it and would make it look so much better.

Aside from what could be done to make it look better, there is still enough here to give you a nice look at it and even want to visit its location to marvel at its design style.

I do like the picture and more so the lens. I plan to get my own ultra-wide angle actually - I just need to save more money. Was planning to buy it in HK (where it's 200 US cheaper than anywhere lese) to find out they didn't have stock! Gah... :|

I like the photo, but the lack of color makes it so depressing. It reminds me of the stones they use for tombstones.
