This photo from my last trip to Budapest is probably the one I am most happy that I was able to capture. The reason is that for the last six or seven times I have been to Budapest, I have not been able to get a straight on shot of the Parliament building. Every time there has always been a big restaurant ship docked right in front of it, blocking the straight on view. This time was no different so I went up to the Fisherman’s bastion to see if I could get a better view from up high, only to see that the ship was leaving dock. I rushed down to the riverbank again to capture some straight on long exposures of the Parliament building and got among other this image.
I used the Lee Big Stopper and a Triggertrap to capture this 73 sec long exposure.
