Somehow I managed to get up again at 5 in the morning, and even while it was raining a bit, I decided to go out to take photos. And my destination today was the Opera house here in Bordeaux. I had a bit of luck, and right before the morning blue hour, they stated to clean the square right in front of the opera, so making it wet, and so creating a great reflection in the process.

This is a two shot vertorama, edited in Lightroom and Photoshop.

I somehow woke up at 5am this morning, so what else to do, than to go out and take some photos :) And since I have been out soo early, even before the blue hour, I thought I play with the lights of the passing trams to get an interesting photo, and here is one of those I took.

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

And I caught up with the blog :) This is another shot of the Pont de Pierre in Bordeaux. This bridge looks really great, but regrettably, it’s quite hard to get close to it. From one side, there is a 2m high wall running right along the road next to it, from the other the whole area is covered with mud, so very slippery and dangerous. But I did my best, getting a bit closer and not getting completely dirty at the same time :)

This is a single exposure edited in Lightroom and Photoshop. I had to expand the top part, as I managed to cut the top of the closes lamp, but with a bit of editing in Photoshop it was easily corrected.

This is a great example where a good tilt shift lens can come in handy. I was able to get the whole fountain form a single spot, just by shifting up and down. I still had to tilt a bit up, but that created only a very minimal distortion.

Btw. I a bit unsure on the brightness of my latest photos. The Surface Pro 4 display is different to my standard one I work on regularly, so it will take a bit getting used to it.

This is a three exposure vertorama, merged in Lightroom, edited in Photoshop.

Sorry for the delay in updates, but my plan to work on the go was set back by my inability to connect to a wifi network. But now it should be working, so I plan to catch up and continue updating reguralry as before. So for today, a long exposure taken at the Pont de Pierre in Bordeaux.

Btw, there will be no Exif info with the photos for now, will update that later, when I have more time.
