The story behind the image

I had the chance to be in a location that provided a perfect skyline view of the Olympic Park in Munich. The sun was about to set – sadly not behind the park but further to the right, off frame – and dipped the entire sky into light orange.

The 400 mm focal length creates an undistorted skyline view, almost a silhouette. The reduced color set has something magical, and there is plenty of copyspace. Nice.
