Sydney Apocalypse – how to photograph landscapes through thick glass & blinds

I bought my gear to work to do a portfolio head shot for a new member of the team, when at about 5.30pm this amazing sunset appeared in the western sky. I had difficulty shooting this as its through thick glass and horizontal blinds 19 floors up, and the glass being dirty didn’t help. I managed to blur out the blinds using the telephoto lens at 138mm pressed up against the glass. Nonetheless, I’m happy with the result. Shot with Canon 6d, 70-200 F4 IS on, jpeg processed on Nik Software using tonal contrast and slight sharpening. Morale to this story is always have your gear on you because you’ll never know when opportunity knocks.
