Clear blue sky at Pont de pierre

I really do very few vertical photos. You may have noticed on this blog, there are not many of them. I just don’t like them. The only exception is when I do a vertorama, and even those are more often in a square format than a portrait one. And they don’t really fit landscapes anyway. But let’s do one of the rare ones I have taken today.

This is a single photo, split into three and then blended back together in Photoshop. I took three photos originaly, but something caused movement of the camera, and they would not align properly. This is the Pont de Pierre in Bordeaux, France, during a very blue hour. No clouds in sight.

Endless tram in Bordeaux – plotagraph

I wanted to try a plotagraph where not just the water and sky moves. So I tried to do one from this long exposure morning tram shot in Bordeaux in France. It was not as easy as to get the clouds to move, but after few tries it worked out quite well.

You can see how I used animation points and masking here, in the screenshot on the side.

You can check out my Plotagraph Pro review here, and a guide how to create them here.

Yellow and blue are such a perfect combination for photos. They always make for a great contrast. Same here with the Tour métallique de Fourvière (“Metallic tower of Fourvière”) in Lyon. And does it not look completely like the top of the Eiffel tower?

This is again a vertorama, from two shots this time. Combined using Lightroom and finished in Photoshop.

I really would like to see a huge ship passing through the Pont Jacques Chaban-Delmas bridge. Could make for a great photo :)

This is a long exposure, taken with a 10 stop ND filter (Formatt-Hitech firecrast filter). Single exposure, edited in Lightroom and Photoshop.

While I was in Bordeaux, I really wanted a photo of the mirror fountain (Water mirror – Le Miroir d’eau). To bad, it was still too early in the year, so there was no water in it, so no mirror. Still, I went out to it in the morning to get few shots, and here is one of them. This is of course not the water mirror, that was right behind me when I took this shot :)

This is a single exposure, edited in Lightroom and Photoshop.
