Photograph of Landscape in Halstatt, Austria

Driving between Vienna and Salzburg, one gets to observe a change in the Austrian landscape from open, relatively flat plains to the rolling hills of the Austrian Alps. One of the most popular stopping-points along this route is the picturesque village of Hallstatt, somewhere around which this photograph was taken. And with landscapes like this one surrounding the village, it’s not difficult to see why it is such a popular tourist destination!

The Kunsthistorisches Museum and the Naturhistorisches Museum are two of the most impressive museums in Europe. They are museums of art and natural history respectively, and with their enormous collections, they attract tens of thousands of visitors each year. The two museums are housed in identical buildings (more like palaces) facing each other in the heart of Vienna. The surrounding areas are home to other Viennese treasures such as Hofburg Palace, Albertina Museum, and Österreichische Nationalbibliothek (the National Library of Austria). 

The space between the two enormous museums is adorned with fountains, statues and topiary. Due to their age and material of build (copper), most of the statues have started turning green.

From Every Angle

Fountain Photograph

In every photograph, there are certain parts of the subject that are not visible. That is obvious, as each photograph can only be taken from one position. Whatever cannot be seen from that particular position will be absent from the photograph. To capture these omitted things, the photographer needs to change his point-of-view. Shots from different angles help photographers capture different aspects of the subject.

In the gallery below, there are pairs of photographs of different subjects taken from different angles. The photographs, though of the same thing, have aspects that make each one unique.
