A spring moment under the Eiffel tower

I hope you all have a great weekend. I spending mine doing an early spring clean up of my flat :) And while I was doing that, I though I would also share a spring photo with you. So here is one, from early Spring in Paris. The weather was horrible that day, but about for one hour, it got so beautiful, with nice blue sky and golden sunlight everywhere. So of course I was not the only one there. And while I usually don’t like people in my photos, I liked this scene as a whole, so I decided to include them.

This is a two shot vertorama, combined in Lightroom, finished in Photoshop.

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.

(if you use an older web browser, you may only see a static image, if you are on a mobile, please hit the play button to see the Plotagraph in motion)

Off to Austria

I’m off to Austria for a short weekend photo trip today, so this is just a quick post. Wish me luck for good weather and some nice new landscape photos :)

Early spring under the Eiffel tower

And for the photo today, another one of my many vertoramas of the Eiffel tower. I’m really glad I took so many, as now, with the glass wall they are building around it, it’s just not the same anymore.

This is a two shot vertorama, with a third shot used to remove few people close to the camera. Combined in Lightroom, finished in Photoshop.

Lack of updates

I’m really sorry for the lack of updates recently. I’m currently on a work trip through Switzerland, Germany, France and Netherlands, and I’m not that much at my PC or online. I do hope that I would get some great new shots, but the weather is just mostly horrible right now, so not much luck there. I still will be mostly away for the next week, so hopefully after that I get back to more regular updates.

Under the Eiffel tower

For today, how about one of the Eiffel tower photos, I already had ready :) Taken early in the year, one of my many tries to have a few less people visible around the tower.

Blue sky in Paris

Hope you all got what you wanted this Black Friday. I personally finally ordered the Canon 2x III extender. I really did not want to pay full price for it, as I know I will not use it that much. But there are photos I want to try, where the 200mm I have is just not enough. So I will try with 400mm now. I also got a lot of new games for the Xbox One X of course :)

For today’s photo, here is a evening shot taken on the street leading to the Eiffel tower. This is a two shot blend, done in Photoshop.
