Bitter Lemon

Taken on top of the Karlsruhe P10, a car park with it's topmost (open air) floor being filled with sand, sunbeds and a cocktail bar. Unfortunately the cocktails are crap, but it's rather unlikely to spoil a good old Bitter Lemon! It took quite some exposures to get a decent setup with the fore- and background. In fact I was somehow squeezing in my sunbed — that probably explains why the people behind me kept on laughing. I ended up at shooting two landscape images that I stitched together using Hugin.

Post-processing is a mix of selectively correcting the exposure (for getting around -1EV in the background), increasing the saturation and tweaking the contrast.
