So today I got home from Budapest, even if it was with a bit of complications (if you follow the news, you know why), but now I’m home and can get back to what I do, editing photos.

For today, I have for you a photo of the Liberty bridge, taken right as the sun was hiding behind the hills surrounding the city. As it was very very hot in the recent months, the Danube level is quite low, so there is even grass between the rocks, that are normally covered by water. This of course gives the possibility to get really low under the bridge and so get new vantage points for shots. I also used a 10 stop ND filter here, to soften the water of the Danube. I actually had quite luck, as normally there is always a ship passing by, but somehow, for a few minutes, there was nothing there.

This is a HDR from 3 exposures, crated in Oloneo Photoengine, finished in Photoshop.

Bojnice Castle


And we got to the most viewed photo on the blog. And as this is one of my all time favorite shots, I’m not even surprised that this is the one :)

This is a panorama, taken from the top of the Eiffel tower in Paris, during a rainy sunset :)

At number 2, one of my favorite photos ever taken in Budapest. A sunrise shot of the Liberty bridge.

Continuing with number 3, here we have a photo taken in the center of Prague, Czech Republic.
