Recently I had quite a few problems with the Sony a7R, and it got to the stage where the camera was almost unusable. Last time I tried to go out with it and take shots, it crashed on me around 10 times in less than a hour. That is just not acceptable. So last week I turned it in for a warranty service, and now I’m just waiting for what they do with it. Hope it fine afterwards.
In the Lake District
I was going through my old photos yesterday, and since there are still many that are worth of editing and sharing, I will do so. Here is one taken in 2013 during my trip to the UK. With my brother I also visited Lake District (while going from Birmingham to Edinburgh) and while it was a bit colder that one would like, I still got some nice shots. Definitely will have to revisit some time in the middle of Summer :)
I actually tried to edit this shot in 2013, but I did not like the result. But now, with a bit more experience and knowledge of Photoshop, I got a result I liked. This is a blend of three exposures, one for the base, one to brighten the island and the last one to darken the sky. Edited in Lightroom and Photoshop. Photo taken near the port in Keswick.
I used to have a Portfolio option in the menu here, that would open my other site www.hdrshooter.net, but since that includes all my photos, I thought I change it to something more manageable. So now, there is a new option in the menu, My Favorites, and that only show a page of 60 of my favorite photos I took over the years. I think that works better for those that visit my blog for the first time.
From the Alexander bridge
Funny how this photos seem so unusual for me. It’s a portrait shot, it’s taken in the middle of the day and it’s not a wide landscape. But I still like it, so here it is :) A change can be good from time to time.
This is a single exposure, edited in Lightroom and Photoshop.
I posted a lot of photos over the years (almost 2000 already :)), but there are of course some that are my favorites. This page shows 60 of the ones I like the most, and if you would like to see all the other, either page through the blog (which will take a lot of time :)) or page through a gallery that includes all of them on www.hdrshooter.net (which will take a bit less time :)). So here are my favorites, in a random order.
How about one more shot from Budapest. It actually from the same evening as the previous one, taken only minutes later from the same spot. It’s just the view towards the opposite side. I did have to wait quite a while until the area got empty, but in the end, it was, for few seconds that is :). But it was enough to take the shot.
This is a blend from two exposures, one normal and one darker for the bright lights. Edited in Lightroom and Photoshop.
