black & white previews
All colour images are also available as black & white prints. The b&w previews offered here are produced by simply desaturating the image via Javascript. The result is a neutral b&w preview which may appear flat or too dark/bright. Before printing, however, each image is individually assessed and adjusted for best contrast, tonal quality, and dynamic range.

The Hofburg Imperial Palace housed some of the most powerful people in Austrian history. From 1438 to 1583 and from 1612 to 1806, it was the seat of the kings and emperors of the Holy Roman Empire of German Nation, thereafter the principal winter residence of the the Habsburg dynasty, rulers of the Austro-Hungarian empire until 1918 (while Schönbrunn Palace was their preferred summer residence). Today it is the official seat of the Austrian Federal President.
