Water tower on Swabian Hill

by szgabor

I wanted to make a vintage like picture of this beautiful water tower. I had to remove a car, a lot lamppost, cables and antennas from that. The point of view was chosen carefully when I took this shot. I saved a lot of work when one of the lamppost was placed in front of a blank wall. Even so it took three days to be ready.
I used NIK Software's Silver Efex Pro plug-in for the conversion and the vintage look.
