    I've been meaning to post a few from my Summer Trip to Berlin, so much history in this city and the sheer range of different architecture and buildings to shoot is just incredible.
    Second time there and I know I'll be back again.

    1. Olympiastadion, Berlin (in the lovely summer weather that day...)

    OOh, I like all of them. First one is probably my pick, but the Cathedral pushes it close

    I like all except the last, where the light trails distract instead of enhancing, and there's too much wet road with not enough interest. The Reichstag is the opposite and does the same type of scene very much better.

    Very nice set, although the architecture isn't all the same, there is a consistent theme with them all being very imposing structures.

    Thanks! It was the one shot I really set out to get in Berlin, amazing looking structure.

    Thanks, I was lucky the Cathedral was about 5 mins away from the hotel we were in! Lots of shots from here.

    I think I agree with you on the Brandenburg Gate if I'm honest!

    Thanks! Yeah its a hive of activity at night now.

    Thankful, appreciated!

    Yeah its one thing Berlin isn't short of; imposing architecture, guess we have to thank the Nazi's and Soviets for something....

    Great set. I love Berlin, easily one of my three favourite cities. So much history to see. The Olympic Stadium and the Cathedral are my favourites of the set.

    Three is the best take. Better light really helps.

    For no5 I would just zoom all the way in to the gate. You wouldn't be losing anything interesting around.

    I'm really liking these, Chris.

    I'll have a think about visiting there next year :)
    Spain, Poland, Italy and France this year, and a few stopovers in the UK. I need some time to work, too.

    It's a great city, so much to see and do and also feels like one of the safest cities I've wandered around at night!

    Thanks Ian, appreciated!

    A really nice set of another interesting, lesser photographed city (along with Ian's Moscow images).
