End of the world :)

If you can read this there was no end of the world.. some people will be so disappointed :)

Looking up in Segovia Cathedral

Somehow when I can’t use a tripod, I only take very few photos. It’s happening mostly in churches. If I know I will not like the result, I just don’t bother anymore and just enjoy how it looks. But I did take few photos in the Segovia Cathedral so here is one of those. Only handheld and only from a single RAW.

Top 5 Spots

There is a new part to this blog. It’s called Top 5 Spots and it’s list of the top 5 places in the cities I know. Of course i started with Bratislava, but I will add few more later on (Vienna, Prague…). Hope you like the list and also find it useful, if you ever plan a trip to Bratislava.  So check it out here Top 5 Photography Spots – Bratislava

Storks in Segovia

I know it’s little harder to see, but on the two trees in front are stork nests on top. As I still don’t have a zoom lens, I had no chance to take a closer photo :) But that will change hopefully quite soon.

This photo was taken from the top of the Alcazar in Segovia. I wanted to add a photo of the Alcazar too, but I don’t know what I was thinking about while photographing it, as I don’t like the composition in a single one.

Bigger looks better

There is one thing about HDR’s different to normal photos. This is that the bigger they are, the better they look. The reason for this is simple. HDR photos have usually so much detail, that in a small view, most of it gets lost. And this holds true even more by cityscapes, like the one I’m posting today. So if you want to see it in the best way possible, I suggest clicking on the photo, to open the one stored on my portfolio page.

What gear I use

A lot of times I get asked, what I used to take a specific photo. So I created a page on this site, which includes all the gear I currently use. You can find it in the sidebar as My gear or directly here. Also each post you expand, includes a description of the used camera and lens under the photos.

Mountains in the distance

This is the view from the top of the Alcazar in Segovia. It really was just beautiful. After it was overcast the whole morning, the sky cleared and we had this beautiful view of the city. The view was great, but the light was horrible. The photos came out colorless, really boring. I edited this few times, until I was at least partially satisfied with the result. If you look at the comparison with the original 0EV shot, you will see what I mean.

Classic shot in the Segovia Cathedral

This really is a classic composition for a place like this :). I just could resist to also have a photo like this. I took this shot in the cloister of the Segovia Cathedral in Segovia. I wanted to try few different composition, but few seconds after I took this shot, I was asked to stop using my tripod, and the security guard started walking around, interfering with my shots. Probably he thought I will destroy the stone floor tiles with the rubber feet of my tripod :) But either way, I’m happy with this shot.
