The Frauenkirche was destroyed in 1945 when Dresden was almost completely destroyed by bombs and was rebuilt between 1994 and 2005. An amazing building!

A little experiment of converter stacking. This is the cross on the Frauenkirche.

Rome…

September 4th, 2009

… the last stop on my summer vacation.

It was an awesome experience to see three so extremely different cities in just 10 days.

Together with my brother I planned this just a few weeks in advance (not the best thing to do if you need a visas for Russia…).

Our route was: Stuttgart – Berlin – Saint Petersburg (3 night stay) – Moscow (2 night stay) – Duesseldorf (1 night stay) – Rome (3 night stay) – Hamburg – Stuttgart

Amazingly sharp lens but noisy AF. I will do a full review after my summer journey in a few weeks.
