Nyhavn is a particularly difficult place to photograph due to the many people photographing it from every angle. There aren't many angles to try to start with and perspective is limited. The weather can make the difference between your photos and the ones from thousands of other photographers.
Unfortunately it is not something we can control and on that day the sky was cloudless - a big disadvantage to some professional photographers. However, another parameter that can make the difference photographing a landmark in a confined area is the time of day. I am not usually chasing sunsets and that day was no different. After spending a great afternoon at the Botanical Gardens I went to Nyhavn and this time I sat in the warm shade to look at the sunny side - a much better view!
By the time the sun started to set my bum got numb so I had to walk to get the blood flowing. There is a bridge somewhere along the canal and that's where I stopped while looking for interesting angles. I used the widest angle on my lens and underexposed my photos.
This is one of my new favourite photos of Copenhagen!
