Visiting the world famous Cologne Cathedral

After visiting the Photokina I had some time to see the famous Cathedral in Cologne. It's one stop from where the Photokina takes place, and in the main station of Cologne you'll see a sign which way to go to find it. I didn't know the exit of the main station is directly next to the cathedral, so I was overwhelmed by it directly.

Some things are just bigger than life. Impossible to capture in a picture, especially at close range. But I tried making some memorable shots with the Nokia 808 PureView of course. Since this is a place that is really world famous I'll share a good dozen of pictures I took from the outside (in a very bright late afternoon sun) and inside - quite dark of course, and incredibly big. Large. Huge. Immense.

The few pictures you see here are resized of course. I took most in full resolution, hoping to be able to zoom in on lots details, since there is such an incredible amount of them. So I took the risk of noise in the pictures. You can find all pictures in their original sizes in the special set on the PureViewClub Photostream on Flickr.

I have been playing around with the settings on the 808 a lot, especially inside the cathedral, but also trying to control the bright light outside. It wasn't always easy, but I'll share them anyway. I truly hope you will enjoy viewing these shots as I did making them.

That's all for here, like I wrote you can find all pictures in their original sizes in the special set on the  PureViewClub Photostream on Flickr. See you there :-)
