Week 17 - Essence of Prague - EPx

A few weeks ago, we visited Prague. During this visit I managed to visit the Charles Bridge during sunrise. Naively, I was expecting to be almost alone ... but on the bridge, I found a large group of photographers lined up to capture a shot of the sunrise over the line-up of steeples that marks the city of Prague. 

As I was only carrying my Really Right Stuff mini (table) tripod, and didn't want to block the line of sight of the other photographers, I moved to the side of the bridge to use the balustrade to setup my mini tripod. From that position, I took this shot, just before the sun appeared above the steeples. 

In post, I slightly increased the contrasts, to make the silhouettes come out stronger, while also cropping out the bottom part of the photo, to put more stress on the line-up of steeples.
