The contest I announced a week ago is still running and everyone can still enter it. Here is a little overview how it looks until now :) To see how you can enter, the rules are here.
Center of Bratislava
If I took this photo 50 years earlier, there would have been a synagogue standing right next to the cathedral, with a whole city part in the place where there is the entry to the New Bridge. You have to wonder, what were those people thinking, when they destroyed such a part of the city history. Stupid communist .. :(
In the zoo
You hear a lot that you don’t need more megapixels in your camera. But than you try to take a photo like this in a Zoo, and you only have a 200mm lens. So in the end, you have to crop your photo, and crop it a lot. This is almost cropped from the 100% view. And I would have cropped it even more, if my camera had more than 22Mpix. I really think that it’s much easier to carry a high megapixel camera than a 500mm lens :)
Sunset in Prague
Can you imagine having a beautiful sunset, great location which allows tripods, great view of Prague.. and then having a double glass window in front of you, which is very dirty, and lights behind you, which cannot be turned of and create a lot of reflections on the windows. It was so frustrating. At the end I lowered my camera, so its close to the ground and hang my shirt from a railing above it, so it blocks as much of the lights as possible. It helped, but still this shot could be so much better.
