One from Dresden

posted in Dresden, Germany on with No Comments

Somehow I was busy the whole day today. But still I managed to get some time to edit a new photo. Today its one form Dresden. Dresden is a really lovely city, just a little busy during the day. And as I wasn’t staying there, I had no chance to go and shoot the sunrise, and sunset was nothing special. It even started raining right after that.

This is a HDR created in Oloneo Photoengine and blended with original exposures in Photoshop.

Blue water in Dresden

I’m finally getting back to HDR after the last few days filled with editing party photos. It’s fun, but so much work. I’m so thankful for the sync function in Lightroom :) But here I have for you a photo from Dresden.

I created it by using manual blending. I had 5 exposures, but even on the +2EV the area under the bridge was black. I tried to brighten it up, but even in the RAW file the area was still dark. Strange how it got no light reflected from the water. Nest time here, I’m doing a +4EV bracket :)

The double rainbow

posted in Dresden, Germany on with No Comments

The composition on this photo is a little boring. I was not even sure if I should share it. But as it’s the only double rainbow (or a regular one) that I ever got a nice photo of, here it is. It just was on the wrong side. Right behind me was the great citiscape of Dresden and there was nothing interesting towards the rainbow. So I at least tried to get the rainbow without any water getting on my lens, and this is what I got.

This is a manual blend from 3 shots.

Dresden reflection

The daily photo for today is from Dresden. I spend only one day there and even so I had only a shot time with nice light. It changed 4 time during one day between a clear sky and a cloudy sky with a heavy rain. So I got the best of the few minutes during the blue hour I could really shoot and I chosen the best location in the city, right by the water, with all the lovely reflection. There was of course the same problem with passing ships, as it is in every city on a river, but right around the sunset they all left, so I was at least a little lucky :)

This is a manual blend from 5 shots.
