One day, on the way to work, while I was driving through the bridge over the Neckar river, I noticed the incredible view. I just had to stop and take this shot. I had nothing else just my iPhone. I know, heresy - uploading a mobile phone shot to 500px ! I did very little processing, the sky was amazing, so I focused and exposed this shot on the sky, which was amazing. Of course the rest of the photo was pretty dark and lifeless (actually barely visible). But seeing recently that LR4 have a new shadow recovery algorithm I decided to try it out. I wanted to share the result.

About the Neckar river:
The Neckar is a 367 km (228 mi) long river, mainly flowing through the southwestern state of Baden-Württemberg, but also a short section through Hesse, in Germany. The Neckar is a major right tributary of the River Rhine. Rising in the Black Forest near Villingen-Schwenningen in the conservation area Schwenninger Moos at a height of 706 m (2,316 ft) above sea level, it passes through Rottweil, Rottenburg am Neckar, Kilchberg, Tübingen, Wernau, Nürtingen, Plochingen, Esslingen, Stuttgart, Ludwigsburg, Marbach, Heilbronn and Heidelberg, before discharging into the Rhine at Mannheim (at 95 m (312 ft) above sea level).
