The story behind the image
The other day I posted an image of Schloss Charlottenburg in Berlin, Germany. By accident I came across this older photo from 2001 that was taken almost from the same location. The company had sent me to Berlin for a workshop, and since I had never been in Berlin before I took my time to do a guided bus tour that also stopped at the Schloss.
It’s interesting to see the changes between 2001 and 2006. The most important change is that the large car park of 2001 has been removed in 2006, a smart decision by the government of the city as it enables a perfect view of the Schloss without unnecessary distractions in the front. So, in every aspect (content, camera position, and image size) the 2006 is superior to this shot. I like it anyway.
I had brought just my tiny Kodak DC 4800 Zoom Digital, so the high resolution image size is not really “high” by todays standards. The image quality, however, is pretty good as it was still early days for digital photography.
