Day #135 @ Photography Project 365

Here's yet another photo of Germany's most famous beverage - beer. Not all glasses are filled with beer though - some have the sinister-tasting apple juice.

We went out for dinner in a Bavarian restaurant within the "Beer Museum". As is the case in most (if not all) Bavarian restaurants, the selection of food was rather limited. The choice of beer wasn't great either but you can't really go wrong with any German beer anyway.

For this photo, I had to decrease saturation because it was just too yellow. However, I increased vibrance to keep the colors lively. Next, I boosted contrast, exposure and clarity. I like this photo because it has a very clear subject - beer / beverages.

About the museum: it's definitely worth a visit. It costs 4 EUR per adult. Many of the items on display revolve around the Oktoberfest and this year, Munich will celebrate the 200th Oktoberfest. It was evident from our visit that beer is in fact an extremely important part of Munich's history.

Here are some photos I took in the Beer Museum:

(Right) Pictured here is a typical dining table used in the beer gardens. On the shelf in the back are some items found and sold at the Oktoberfest.

(Left) Some beer labels / brands that were available before. I don't recognize all of them and presume some no longer exist.

(Right) I found this beer barrel stored away in a little room somewhere in the museum.

In conclusion to this post, here's a link to a nice, entertaining video on YouTube about men and beer (courtesy of Heineken).

I'm no beer fan but I love the setting and the vivid colors.

Well composed.

Thanks, M., Darlin. We were having fun and it was in fact a colorful night. I guess that was well depicted in the shot. :-)

Love the composition of this shot. There are so many elements, but your focus and the color theme keeps them from being overwhelming.

Thanks, Kyla. I love my Nikon AF-S 35mm f1.8 lens. Colors and bokeh are great with it.
