The lack of sleep through the last week has really funny effects on me. Today I’m in a half sleep state the whole day. It even happened to me today, that I walked into a bank, and only after the clerk told me that I don’t have an account there, I realized I’m not in the correct bank. I did feel really stupid :).

But slowly I have to start working on the photos from Amsterdam, so here you have a new one, taken late night the fist day I was there. I really liked the reflection, but it’s hard to get it during the day. There are just too many ships passing through this spot, to get a calm enough water. It’s much better in the morning, or late at night.

This is a HDR from 4 exposures, created in Oloneo Photoengine.

I just got home around a hour ago, but of course the first thing I did was to copy some of the photos onto my pc, so I could edit one for the blog :) And here it is.

This is an early morning shot of the I Amsterdam sign, as this was the only time one could have it without any people. This is a HDR from 4 exposure, created in Oloneo Photoengine.

Already returning tomorrow from Amsterdam, and as I know myself, probably the first thing I do will be to copy the photos on my PC and start editing right away :) So if I have enough energy, and some nice stuff to edit, tomorrow you should see a first shot from Amsterdam here :)

But for today, a sunset shot from Prague.

One day I’m always in Budapest is the St. Stephen’s Day celebration. I plan to go this year again, and probably also the next one. The fireworks are just so great that day, one just has to go :)

St. Stephen's Day Celebrations


This was the only time I captured a rainbow in a photo. And it happened to be a double one. It was so nice after getting rained on 4 times that day :)
