Nymphenburg Palace Sunset by 

Nymphenburg Palace is run and maintained by the Bavarian Palace Department. Building began on this summer palace west of Munich in 1664. The palace is set in magnificent surroundings with a large park and nearby orangerie and botanic gardens.

Captured on a summer evening several years ago with my first digital camera. I experimented to get the backlight/sunset light through the windows as it reminded me somehow of the Magritte paintings I’d seen in Bruxelles. And to capture the seagull too:-)

I have a few other favourite shots from that evening. Although I’ve been back many times since none of my shots have got close to the light and mood that evening.

Location: Nymphenburg Palace, Munich, Bavaria, Germany
Nikon Coolpix E885, f3.5, 1/302s, 13 mm, ISO 100. Post-pro in Photoshop Elements 2.0, I guess, as I processed it quite a while ago.
