In 2015 summer I visited Denmark capital Copenhagen. Low-fare airlines is good choise for short trip. Flight from Kaunas to Copenhagen cost 1 euro (one way).
Here is full album from this trip [link]:

Tips and Tricks
- Try to capture city panorama. In Copenhagen I choise Tower of Church of Our Saviour. From there you can see the whole city. I make 365 panoramic image and try “Polar panorama effect” or “small planet”.
- Try to be different. Find new angles, perspectives, try to capture images from low (high) angle position, try new lenses (for example Lensbaby).
- Try to ultra-long-exposure
- Try to HDR photography.
(In this picture exposure is 300 s., camera triggered by Triggertrap)
(This image combine with Adobe Photoshop Lightroom HDR Merge function from two frames (0.4 s. and 5 s. exposure))
With Nikon D5300 I track logs with the location information. The camera’s location data unit can record your latitude, longitude, altitude and time onto an SD card (Duration selectable: 6 h, 12 h, 24 h; Interval selectable: 15 s, 30 s, 60 s.). This function can work even when the camera is turned off (this is great!).
And then I can geotag all my pictures from both cameras (Nikon D810 don’t have built-in GPS).
Here is all my pictures on map:
When I uploading pictures to Flick, all pictures I can find on map [link].
