I was posting the image of the Municipal House of Prague some time before. Today I’m sharing another image that depicts the Municipal House (Obecní dům) and Powder Tower (Prašná brána) together. This image was made of 2 images at night and then stitched together in Photoshop.
Not far from the Vltava river and the Dancing house there is park where you may have a view on the New Town Hall. The New Town Hall (Novoměstská radnice) is the administrative center of Prague’s New Town Quarter. The New Town Hall has a few buildings and the oldest of them was constructed during 1377–1398.
The image was made as an HDR image merged of 3 images shot with a tripod with long exposure. The result has been processed in Photoshop.
Walking by streets of night Prague during the last hours of our trip to Prague we visited a modern landmark of this old city – the Dancing house (Tančící dům). This building has a non-traditional style.. the style is Deconstructivism. Its suppose to use non-rectilinear shapes which appear to distort and dislocate elements of architecture. This is very obvious if you look at this building :)
Another name of this building is Fred and Ginger named after the names of American dancers – Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers. You may find that the house is similar to a dancing pair.
The design of the Dancing house was approved in 1992 and the construction was completed in 1996. The architect designed it were Vlado Milunić and Frank Gehry. The project was supervised by the Czech President, Václav Havel. He was living some time near the empty place, remained after American bombing of 1945, where the building is today.
The image is a single shot image made at 18mm of my lens with exposure time of 5 sec.
The Czech National museum (Národní muzeum) collects natural scientific and historical collections. Its building is located on Wenceslas Square in Prague. The building of the National museum was founded in 1818 in Prague by Kašpar Maria Šternberg. It houses almost 14 million items from the area of natural history.
This photo depicts the building of the museum at night. Also you may see the monument of St. Wenceslas in front of the building.
The image was made using Canon EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS @52mm @2.5 sec exposure time and a tripod.
