ABC Tower

My office building in my home city, Cologne, Germany, offers great views of the city and the countryside around. However, being the only highrise in the neighborhood, it is also a nice subject all by itself. For these shots, I waited for the sun to set. The night was slightly overcast, but the half moon provided a nice balance to counter the building.

In particular, the contrast between the cold blueish cast of the moon and the warm, incadescent cast of the illuminated high rise adds some drama.

These shots were taken with a D300, a 35/1.8 lens, hand-held.
