Karlsruhe H&M

This place is about 30m next to the Moccasin (see previous image from Karlsruhe), so I get around whenever I'm having one of my favorite coffees. Since the facade has some great relief, I had the idea to shoot it for quite some time. Originally I considered using some longer exposure time for having a motion blured cyclist crossing the frame. But in the end I would have had to choose a different composition, since the cyclist would have required quite some space inside the frame (the street's not really wide at this place).

Post processing mainly consisted of sepia colouring and heavy local contrast enhancements as well as tone mapping. I also applied some lens and perspective corrections. Check out the original, unedited image available through the buttons on the left side.
