A couple walking underneath the arches at the Zwinger, Dresden, Germany

The Zwinger is a building in Dresden in Germany, which now houses a museum and art gallery. It was rebuilt during the communist era after being bombed during WWII

This photo was taken in one of the entrances and I liked the arches with the view through the main arch across to the other side of the courtyard/gardens.

Photography wise it’s a 20mm wide angle shot. The interior was quite dark and the outside was a brighter, steely grey cloudy day. The interior exposure value totally wiped out all detail from the grey outdoors looking across the gardens. So I put the camera on a tripod, framed the shot and took two different exposures, one for the orange interior and one for the outside. Then I waited for these two people and took a third photograph of them. In photoshop I mixed them altogether to get the one single shot.
