The Gloriette at Schönbrunn, Vienna. The “Gloriette” term stands for “little glory” in french and it refers to a building in a garden, and it’s usually to be found on a hill. The gloriette at Schönbrunn is the largest one, and was built in 1775 by architect Johann Ferdinand Hetzendorf von Hohenberg.

As i mentioned before, i’m not a big HDR fan but sometimes in specific situations i find this technique very helpful. The image is made out of 3 shots (hand-held), processed using Photomatix and CS3. I like to keep’em natural.

  1. I'm a big fan of HDR if done properly to bring out the details in an image and if not overdone. Excellent image, HDR is especially effective for architecture and this is a fascinating capture of the design and intricate details of this structure. Great job!
