Krakow: Sukiennice and St. Mary's Basilica by Nightcitylights Krakow: Sukiennice and St. Mary's Basilica by Nightcitylights
Poland, Krakow, Main Market Square, early morning of April 13, 2013.

Krakow is the second largest and one of the oldest cities in Poland. Situated on the Vistula River in the Lesser Poland region, the city dates back to the 7th century. Krakow has traditionally been one of the leading centres of Polish academic, cultural, and artistic life and is one of Poland's most important economic hubs. It was the capital of Poland from 1038 to 1569.

Krakow has preserved its Old Town well. The Main Square is the main market square of the Old Town in Krakow and a principal urban space located at the center of the city. It dates back to the 13th century, and – at roughly 40,000 m² (430,000 ft²) – it is the largest medieval town square in Europe.

The Renaissance Sukiennice (Cloth Hall) is one of the city's most recognizable icons. It is the central feature of the Main Market Square. It was once a major centre of international trade. Traveling merchants met there to discuss business and to barter. During its golden age in the 15th century, Sukiennice was the source of a variety of exotic imports from the East – spices, silk, leather and wax – while Kraków itself exported textiles, lead, and salt from the Wieliczka Salt Mine. Church of Our Lady Assumed into Heaven (St. Mary's Basilica) is a brick gothic church re-built in the 14th century (originally built in the early 13th century), adjacent to the Main Market Square.

Oh man, one of the greatest photo of Kraków.
Great capture, great approach! Very well done and very good idea with this water.
I understand from your description that this is HDR made of two different expositions?
Why ISO 200, not 100?

Regards

Yep, HDR from two different expositions.
I often use ISO 200 to make expositions a bit shorter so to take more pictures during the evening/morning :)
