So another weekend, another trip. This time it to Prague. And as the last days were warm and very sunny, the weather during the weekend will probably be horrible. Let’s see :)
So in the last week I got 4 photos into Flickr explore selection, and I didn’t even noticed :). But the fifth got to number 26 and I noticed. It was this one Calling Batman. I noticed that a lot of people react if you give your photo a funny name, I have to do this more often.
Too bad it was closed, but still it looked like a fairy tale castle. I waited in front of it until there were no people and took this shot. I had to do a lot of retouching, as I had to remove all trees from the boarders of this shot, because of the heavy wind. I keep the colors quite soft, as it was a clouded and colorless evening and I don’t want the photo to look unnatural.
I also did a little lens correction on this photo. I was standing quite close to the Bastion, because of a construction side fence behind me, so it distorted the photo quite a lot. I don’d do this usually, as I don’t mind the distortion, but it helped to remove unwanted branches from the corners of the photo.
