What do you take photos of, when you are in Prague, it’s 5:30 in the morning and it’s raining. Of the metro of course :) And due to the very early hour, I had no need to retouch any people from this photo, as they were none. I actually visited three different stations that morning, taking a similar styled photo in each one. So if you see more of them, don’t be surprised :)

This is a manual blend from 5 shots, taken in the Angel metro station (Andel) in Prague.

Number 5 of my 10 part series. In this photo you will notice that the difference from what I started to where I ended is not that big. Still, making the change required quite a lot of work :)
This is the final photo, open the full post to see the original shot and how it looked in photoshop:
Late hour on the Wenceslas Square

Just two more days, and I’m off for a 10 day trip to the UK. I will visit Birmingham, London, Edinburgh and the Lake district. Can’t way to again have some new photos to process. But until than, here is another one from Prague, one taken right in front of the museum on the Wenceslas Square.

This is a manual blend from 7 shots, all to reduce the brightness of all the lights lighting the building.

Somehow I never get to the Wenceslas Square when I’m in Prague. Usually I stay at the other side of Vltava and never get further than to the Old town square :) But for next time I want to do a sunrise shooting here. As you can see, it’s a busy place in the evening, so if I want no people, I will have to go early at night.

I’m very mad at myself for this photo, as it could have been much better. I had a remote in the bag and I only used the 2s timer. And of course this resulted in the darkest exposure being completely blurry and not usable. And also the second darkest was not that good (same as a lot of other photos from that evening). Looks like one really has to learn on his own mistakes. Never again without a remote for me :)

I prefer going to the Chalres bridge in Prague late at night. There are still a lot of people there, but much better than during the day. If you ever been there, you would see that it’s sometime even hard to cross the bridge, due to the amount of people there :)
