Ups and downs

Work screenFunny thing about editing photos. Sometime one is not in the mood to do it at all, sometime one can’t stop. And I was in the second mood yesterday, so I was editing until around 3am :) So there are already few new photos ready for the blog, which you will see in the following days. Hope this mood keeps on for the whole 2018 :)

Long exposure sunset over Danube

The sunset yesterday looked nice, but a bit cloudy and windy. So instead of just taking photos, I did a lot of long exposures. Same as yesterday, this is also one, but this one is also a panorama. If you are curious on how hard it is to combine a long exposure panorama, it is as easy as normal photo. You will just have to correct the blend, like in the sky and water here, as the clouds and water move too much in a long exposure for Lightroom to blend them properly. No problems with static parts of the scene of course :)

This photo was taken from the new Old bridge in Bratislava. The bridge gives a really nice view, but as every bridge, it’s not so great for photos. As it’s a tram bridge, it shakes like crazy every time a tram passes by. I had to redo the photos few times, until it was acceptably sharp. But still not as much as I would like to, but you can see that only at 100%.

This is a two shot panorama, taken using a VFFOTO 10 stop ND filter. Combined in Lightroom, finished in Photoshop.
