Blue morning in Rotterdam

Today I tried to decide if I should go out to take photos or not. The clouds showed promise. In the end I decided to go and go up to the Old town hall tower to get some photos of the Christmas markets. And I really had luck with the sunset, as today it was just beautiful. But, I still have to edit the photos, so I show it to you probably tomorrow :)

And until then, here is a photo from the center of Rotterdam in Netherlands. I was on a ship there, that was docked not far away from this spot, so I decided to try some sunrise photos. And this was taken during the morning blue hour. This is a blend of three exposures, done in Photoshop.

Light in the park

The Bayterek monument in Astana, Kazakhstan really shines at night. Does not really make for easy photo blending but looks really nice. Btw. I still don’t know if its Bayterek or Baiterek. Still seen both being used.

This is a blend of 3 exposures, done in Photoshp.

Fireworks over the city

Still three weeks until the end of the year, but it’s time to think from where I try to get a nice photo of the New Years fireworks. And I have to say, I have no idea yet. I don’t want to the same location as last or the year before, but not sure if I find something better. Let see what I find this time :)

This is a shot from 3 years ago. I got nothing last year due to very strong fog, and the year before I took photos form the Old bridge. This is a single exposure, edited in Photoshop.

Evening over Astana

Back to Astana in Kazakhstan with another photo from there. This one was taken from a roof of one of the skyscrapers in the city. It was a great view, even if it was right after a thunderstorm, which makes things a bit worse. You may have noticed that sometime, you can focus as much as you want and the shots just are not sharp as you want them to be. This is sometime caused by the weather. If there is too much moisture in the air, you will just get soft photo. And you can’t do anything about it.

New keyboard and mouse

For many years now I have been using an ergonomic keyboard from Microsoft. I used every model they released in the last 10-15 years. But recently I had been having issues, as all the new ones are wireless and just caused strange problem. So in the end, I decided to change the brand of what I use for the first time in years. So now I got the Xiaomi Gaming keyboard and also mouse. They look quite nice, but it is quite a change from what I had before.

Even I’m curious to see if I get used to them or I switch back soon. The last time I tried a different mouse (Logitech MX I think) I had to switch back within a week, as my hand hurt like if somebody broke it. I just could not use it. Hopefully this will not happen this time.

Midnight reflection

I took this image on the 31st of December of last year, few minutes before the New Year. I was actually on the way to take photos of the fireworks, but I as was walking to my destination, I noticed this puddle with this cool reflection. So even though I had only short time left I had to stop and take few shots here.

This is a two shot vertorama, taken at the new Old Bridge in Bratislava. Mostly edited in Lightroom, with only few tweaks in Photoshop.
