Missing comments

Here and there I randomly browse the blog, just to see if all is OK. And while doing that yesterday I noticed that on some pages the comments were not available. And of course that were the most popular pages on the whole blog. It took me a bit of searching for where the problem is, but now it all should be working again, and comments are available :)

Btw. if you are curious which are the most popular pages on the blog, there are Top photography spots in Amsterdam, Top photography spots in Dubai and followed closely by Top photography spots in Prague :).

Down to the rocks in Vernazza

I posted already two photos from Vernazza, but this third one is a bit different. For this one I did not include the town in the shot at all, and focused instead on the rocks formation at the shore in the port in front of the city.

I decided to do long exposures that day, as it was very sunny and not really that great for normal landscapes. This is of course after the forecast for the whole week I was there was rain and thunderstorms :)

For this shot I used the 12mm lens, to get as much of the foreground I could get. Then I used the NISI filter holder on it with the polarizing filter and a Formatt-Hittech 10 stop ND filter to get the long exposure. The polarizer was not used because of the sky, but to get rid of the reflection on the water. You can’t really polarize sky on a 12mm lens, as it would result in a very uneven colors.

This is a two exposure blend of a 15 second exposure as a base and a 30 second exposure to brighten few shadow areas. Edited in Lightroom, finished in Photoshop.
