2nd Place D&M May 2012.

With special thanks to Kara Hendricks who encouraged me to re-submit this picture!

Detail of the Zeitglockenturm (Zytglogge) in Bern, Switzerland. Today it is one of Bern's most important sights. The ornate astronomical clock with its moving figures was built in 1530. It served as the city's main clock and thus had an authoritative function in Bern.
Canon 24-105 mm f/4 L IS lens, handheld.
Raw conversion and postprocessing in DPP and CS3.
