I’m finishing this color skyline mini-series with this view from the Pfluger Pedestrian Bridge. Unlike the skyline, I posted 3 days ago, I used the bridge as a leading line to the buildings, which creates its own kind of drama.
I actually made a similar photo back in January when I first got the Fujifilm GFX 50R, but with the 63mm lens. This one is made with a slightly wider 50mm. On Day 3 of my GFX coverage, I featured that picture. I made today’s from about the same position, and you can tell how much wider it is, making a considerable difference pulling in more of the skyline.
As with the dynamic range example I posted a few days ago, today’s was equally dark before post-processing. This 60-second exposure at ISO 100 was made at its highest quality. I was able to impressively brighten the shadows, making these kinds of pictures better than I ever could in the old HDR processing days.
