Night tram in Porto

Each time when I see a tram or buses passing in front of over something interesting, I try to catch a nice long exposure where I blur them. And of course I tried the same also in Porto in Portugal. Took me few tries to catch this night tram, but I got one :)

This is a blend of two exposures, one main with tram, and one darker for the lights. Edited in Lightroom and Photoshop.

Night clouds over Porto

The week I spend in Portugal this year, was just crazy hot (45 degrees Celsius). And with that weather, the sky was usually mostly just completely clear. So my luck for a nice sunset was just not there. But the last evening there, at least some clouds showed up in the evening, so there are some in this night shot.

This is a 2 shot vertorama, each shot from 5 exposure. First combined with PTgui, then Photoengine, finished in Photoshop.

New category

I’m always happy when I can add a new category to the blog. Because that means that I visited a new city or even country. Few days ago I added Portugal, and today I’m also adding Porto. I do hope there will be more again soon :)

As always, you can see all the categories, in a dropdown on the bottom of every page on this blog.

Evening panorama of Porto

As I mentioned yesterday, I had another panorama for you. This one is a blue hour shot of Porto in Portugal. I took this shot from the walkway leading to the cable car station. From what I seen, this is probably the best place to get a nice shot of the center of the city. Of course I got lock in there, as the closed the gates, while I was still there. Luckily, they are only waist high, and it was not that hard to climb over them. Strangely, nobody cared, that I, and few other people, were still there.

For this photo, I took 4 bracketed series, each one consisting of 5 exposures. I used PTgui to merge them into blend planes, and then blended them in Photoshop. Still, this photo is only 46Mpix, as I did quite a big overlap.
