Rooftops

Recently I've been going back and revisiting some of my older photos. Like most creative works, I've found that giving pieces some time to sit and fade from my mind a bit helps me detach myself from the work enough to look at it with a more critical eye. Plus, as I've learned new editing techniques over time, I can then apply those new techniques to images I haven't previously touched.

At any rate, here's a photo from our trip to Denmark last December. What I remember most about that trip was how cold it was. Really really cold. Also, the never ending gloom. This gave everything a nice omni-lighting effect, and added a bit of interesting atmosphere with the high fog hanging over the city.

This shot was from the very top of Frederiks Kirke (Marble Church) in central Copenhagen. The most distinguishing outward feature of this church is the huge dome. We were wandering around and found ourselves here right as they were about to give a tour to the top of the dome. Many steps and tiny spiral staircases later, we popped out though a small trap door onto the roof where a lovely panorama of the city greeted us.
