Earlier this week (5 July), the UNESCO World Heritage Committee awarded both Speicherstadt (Warehouse district) and the Kontorhausviertel (Commerical office district) UNESCO World Heritage Site status in the north German city of Hamburg. The above photo is in the middle of the Speicherstadt with a northeast view of the Zollkanal from Kibbelsteg towards Jungfernbrücke. Under late-winter afternoon light, the ever-present brick is cast in a warm red-orange glow.
I made the photo above on 8 March 2010 with the Canon 450D camera, the EF-S 18-55 f/3.5-5.6 IS kit- and zoom-lens, and the following settings: 1/640s, f/8, ISO400, 18mm focal length (29mm full-frame equivalent). This post appears on Fotoeins Fotopress at fotoeins.com as http://wp.me/p1BIdT-6Yr.
