Warsaw from the Palace of Culture and Science

Some time ago we went to Warsaw for a few days, to visit the best restaurant in Poland, Atelier Amaro. I've decided to use that opportunity to take a few photos in the city. It's been a while since I was in Warsaw last time, and it's changed quite a bit. I was really surprised how modern this city looks like. This photo was taken from the Palace of Culture and Science. I got there a bit too late and the sunset was almost over. It was so beautiful and I had make sure that I don't miss it so, I decided to not waste time for setting up a tripod and shoot handhold. Luckly amazing ISO capabilities and dynamic range of Nikon D800 allowed me to capture everything I needed in a single photo and adjust the contrast and shadows in Lightroom. Only afterwards I used a tripod for multiple exposures of the night scene. I'm glad I managed to capture this scene, this is the capital of my country I didn't know before.

Photo details: Nikon D800; 18-35mm f3.5-4.5; 1/125 sec at f/8; ISO 800.
