Last night in Madrid

This was taken the last night I was in Madrid. My friends decided to visit a gallery, but I preferred a place where I could take photos. This was again a scene like created for a HDR. The whole bottom part is very light, with the building and the base of the statue very bright. On the other side, the sky was dark, and the statue has no lights pointing to it. But with HDR I got both.

School in the Nature

School in the Nature

We had a very lovely weather yesterday. I spend most of it on the Biofarm in Stupava. Eating great traditional Slovak food and taking photos. One of the buildings in the areal was this “School in the Nature” which is probably used only in the Summer.

This is the first HDR I published, which I took with the help of the Promote Control remote. After few problems I got the hang of it and it now works flawlessly. For this one I did 7 exposure, from -3 to +3. I will test it more, and then write a little review of it for this blog.

Royal Palace Gate

Too bad you can’t take photos inside the palace, so here is one from outside :) But it was nice of them, that in the evening, you don’t have to pay for entrance. (if you are from the EU that is :) )

Entrance to the Neo-Romanesque crypt

Entrance to the Neo-Romanesque crypt

I was in the Almudena Cathedral during the day, but somehow I missed that there is also a crypt under it. I noticed a sign later in the evening, when I was already returning slowly to the hotel. It’s really a stunning place. I was the only one there at the time, so nobody was in the way and they have no problems if you use a tripod there.

Moving soon

I’m working on moving this blog to my own hosted domain, hopefully really soon. So there will be a completely new theme, more info on the photos, more before/after shots and similar :) If anyone has any ideas, what else I should add, let me know :)

Plaza de la Villa

There are so many beautiful places in Madrid. I think I could spend weeks and months just taking more and more photos :)
