Mannheim Watertower


I bought my first DSLR while working in Mannheim, Germany in 2010.  The "Mannheimer Wasserturm" was just down the street from my apartment, and it's where I taught myself the basics of photography.  I have hundreds of images from this location taken over many weeks.  I can see myself experimenting with different shutter speeds and apertures.  This was before I had a tripod, so I relied on image stabilization and multiple shots of the same scene in order to achieve sharp photos in low light.  This image caught my eye in 2010 and I still consider it to be the first "good" picture I ever took.  It has since been re-processed using my much-improved editing skills and the power of Lightroom.

This was taken on April 5, 2010 with a Canon EOS DIGITAL REBEL XSi and Canon EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS.  It is processed with Adobe Lightroom.
