Saint Petersburg Revisited

Four Seasons Hotel Lion Palace St Petersburg russia isaac cathedral-clear

Four Seasons Hotel Lion Palace (St. Petersburg, Russia)

Today’s photo comes from last summer, a summer that ended my run of European summers at four in a row. Hopefully, things are back to normal next summer. My 2020 plans of hitting new countries like Poland, Slovenia, and Austria have been postponed for at least a year.

This photo was taken just before, or just after–I don’t remember, I had an amazing meal of beef Stroganov in its place of origin. The golden doom in the background is not part of the Four Season Hotel. Instead, it’s part of St. Isaac’s Cathedral.

Before understanding the exposure triangle

Today’s photo comes from 2011. My first DSLR was purchased just a month or two before, and I had no idea what the exposure triangle was. This image was shot at f/18, 1/1250, and ISO 6400 in jpg mode. Had I, instead, used something like f/8, 1/250, and ISO 200 and shot in RAW this would have come out so much better. Oh well. Live and learn.

The original image isn’t worthy of showing, but after using Topaz this photograph is no longer that horrible.
