Warmth in Vienna

And just because…I love light, today’s Photography101 is all about it.

Two weeks ago during a bright sunny day in Vienna, I was at the Parliament building experimenting with making a silhouette photo with my Iphone, of course. I made this one.


And then another one


Until newly weds showed up in front of me. Without any time to think and compose, I captured the moment. I wish I had gotten more of his shadows…


I followed them and made this photo, without being noticed.


When I saw tourists photographing them, I joined the crowd. I was not happy with the light, but found that backlight photo would hide them a bit and keep some privacy in case I would ever publish the photo. I just did.

  1. Lovely ! the light on the dress in the pict nb4 is simply beautiful. Did you take the last one after they wedding vows? The groom looks much more relax. His face seems to say “yah! Did it!” 😉


  2. So pretty!! I love the effect of light and shadow here that you captured! The newlywed couple looks so happy and proud…really great!


      1. Yep! That shot is amazing! It´s hard to explain why.. they just got married and they don´t pose… you just managed to capture that precious moment in their life. I can see many moments just like that one, but since I´m to critical towards myself, I don´t dare to capture them. But you did a great job!


  3. The silhouette of the statue is striking in itself…but then the surprise of the newlyweds was fabulous! The warmth of that moment was totally captured when they popped into the picture! Isn’t it great when your original intent changes? Very, very nice!!!
