    Love the first one.

    Where are the xmas markets? Do they take them down straight away?

    They celebrate Christmas on the evening of the 24th here. Usually the markets are dismantled on the morning of the 24th, although some do stay open after chrissy for a couple of days.

    I had wanted to get up there before the markets went but had to work up until the end and the weather leading up was rubbish.

    That first one is absolutely fantastic mate. Did you use a tripod or filters for it?

    Heading to Europe in a few weeks and would love to take even one shot as good as that :thumbup:

    Cheers mate, it's on a tripod as these are the digital shots i was using to gauge the 617 exposure, which was shooting up to 2min exposures. no filters on the camera as had to move quickly - the place shuts at 5pm and there's only about a 6 week window of the year where the daylight hours or lack there of will allow this sort of shot. There is a bit of work in post though with graduated exposure, mostly to darken the sky and sharpen up the tower.

    Where are you off to?

    Two things shit me about fortia:

    One, I only found it during its second production run

    Two, they don't make it any more.

    There's still 4-5 rolls in the fridge. IMO its the best color film I have ever used.

    Nice, thanks for sharing. I was fortunate to be there mid December, they had the Christmas markets in that square and they were awesome!
