The image appears darker than normal due to the tinted glass in the helicopter. I tried to increase the brightness but this simply bleached the shadows on the statue.

Thank you so much BollaBorcsa & Samo T! This was taken from a helicopter tour of the city, you can see another shot of the city from above here :-)

Great shot from above. I take a lot of aerial shots and the tinted/multi-glazed glass plus the angle of light can be a real pain in the ***. The result looks pretty good to me! Kasia

Thank you so much Kasia! I found converting the shot to black and white made the tinted glass seem less severe, but you're right it is a pain.

Greetings Alan, I've only been once and that was by ferry. What a treat to go by Helicopter. Nice shot.
