Vienna: Rathausplatz-Burgtheater

On the evening of 8 September 2008, I was on a whirlwind tour of Hapsburg cities with fellow photographer Denis McCabe.

Working with a Canon EOS-3 loaded with Provia 100F, I made this low-angle photo of a Ring tram paused at the Rathausplatz-Burgtheater stop.

At the time, I carried a compact mini Gitzo tripod that was well suited to this type of urban photography.

I like the contrast of the opulent Hapsburg architecture with the drain-grate in the foreground.

Fujichrome Provia 100F was an ideal choice for this type of night photography because the film incorporates filtration layers designed to minimize the color spikes caused by various types of artificial light.
