Hi Manuel, which focal length do you recommend for this view? I guess, at least 100mm? br Johannes
Manuel Becker
Manuel Becker 02.09.2018
Hey Johannes, I used 50mm on an APSC camera for the sunset photo, so if you are using a full frame camera you might probably start around 70mm. 100mm is also fine of course. The one at the event "Schlossleuchten" was taken at 75mm.

Great, my lense-portfolio ends at 85mm ;) By the way, thanks for initializing and administrating such a great website!

Hehe, 85mm is perfectly fine in my opinion. Already curious about your photos and thanks for your feedback, glad that you like the platform! :)
