Hi,
I just wanted you to show some of the photos I've taken today in Dresden, Germany.
This has been the first outdoor shooting with my new FZ30.

I realised, that shooting with bare hands is more difficult than I thought it was. As I have no tripod, I used my backpack as a replacement.

Here you go: http://leberwurstsaft.zoto.com/galleries/fz30part01/

Photo No. 1 shows the ice rink on the courtyard of the hotel "Taschenbergpalais" in Dresden. This is the most expensive hotel in town. Have a look on http://www.kempinski-dresden.de/en/home/index.htm, where you can see some more impressions of this rink. It's been awarded for being the most beautiful rink all over Germany.

Number 2 shows you the "Frauenkirche". It is possibly known to you, as it's the one church that has been destroyed during the second world war and rebuilt from 1993 till 2005 using all original stones that were still useful. They can easily be spotted since they are black (from being so old) and the new stones are bright new sandstone. Visit http://www.frauenkirche-dresden.org/ and click the link for english language.

On the third one I captured the "Kreuzkirche". I'm always impressed by it's greenish look, especially when it's lit by spotlights in the night! More information can be found here: http://www.dresdner-kreuzkirche.de/index_e.html

And the last picture presents the three chimneys of our local power authorities, the "Drewag". More information here: http://www.drewag.de/eng/index_eng.php

Now, please don't be too rude with my pictures, they are what I was able to do with the camera after one day. I hope you liked them, my fingers would be thankful, because they had to suffer the iciness longer than they would've liked.

Pit


EDIT: Oh, and if you want to see the pictures in other sizes, then please click on "Leberwurstsafts Zotos" in the upper right corner. There you will be sent to all my photos ordered "last added first" and you can click whatever picture you want and then head forward to "Other Sizes".
Just because I realised, that this gallery-theme has no direct link to the picture information.

My favorite is photo2. The colors and light really make it a cool shot.

Well, yes, thats my favourite, too
Maybe tomorrow I will show you, where the quite unusual color of light comes from. I guess, you will like that, too!

I like all of them, though the second one is my favorite one also. It must bewonderful tolive in such an interesting place with so much history behind it. About the oldest buildings I have to take pictures of date from the 1920's - nothing compared to what you have.

You are right. Although a lot has been destroyed during that stupid war, there is such an overload of nice old buildings.
The city is celebrating it's 800th anniversary this year. Not quite the oldest city in Germany, but some of the most well known buildings in the country, and even in the world (Frauenkirche, Semper-Oper, Zwinger)

I've let out a lot of subject this time, because it was sooo cold. And of course, because one needs a lot of time to take care enough of all of them.

I will definitely make pictures from the bridge, pointing towards the world famous "Canaletto Blick" (Canaletto's point of view), that shows a pretty big portion of all those buildings at once, right beyond the "Elbe" (a quite large river). The reflections in the river at night are just too great to miss them!
