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.
(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].
