  • Flashmob: People building a Red Ribbon at the Stephansplatz beside the Stephansdom

World AIDS Day

Today is World AIDS Day. To raise the awareness of this deadly disease actions are taken all around the world. In Vienna a flashmob at the Stephansplatz took place today at 2 pm. People dressed in red built a huge red ribbon right beside the Stephansdom. Thanks to AMSA (Austrian Medical Students’ Association) for organizing and Caro for inviting me to be part of this!

Processing: At first I combined seven photos to create this panorama. In the next step I did some warping to get rid of the awkward distortions due to using a wide angle lens. Last but not least I desaturated the image, did some split toning and minor editing to achieve the final result.
