I’m sorry for the break in uploads the last week, but the frozen evening I spend taking the last photo I posted, really did not work for me well, especially for my allergy that I mentioned. If you want to imagine the effect, it’s like I cut my hands, around 20 times all over the fingers. Really not pleasant and a bit problematic when one wants to do something (it hurts like hell). But with it getting warmer this healed, and finally I’m able to normally continue. So here is a shot from Passau in Germany from last summer.

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

First of all, please excuse the lack of posts recently. I do edit quite a few photos, but nothing I can share and it’s a bit repetitive, so I’m not in the mood to edit anything more afterwards. But I really will have to try and get back into the flow and start updating more again.

So for today, here goes a photo from Passau. I have a very similar without the railing in front, but looking at it, I like this one more (but I will maybe upload the other one sometime later). The railing gives the photo a bit more sense of the location and fill the foreground quite nicely.

Let’s continue with another shot from Passau. I really like the huge cloud over the city here, and with a bit longer exposure, I got quite a nice view of it :)

This is a two shot blend, created in Photoshop. I used the second, darker photo, just do darken few bright spot under the tower.

Shooting fireworks

I mentioned one offer from MacPhun yesterday, and just today, they stated another one :) If you are interested in their Creative Kit plugin bundle, you can get it right now (and until next week) for a much discounted price, and they will also include a video tutorial on shooting photos of fireworks. You can check out the full offer on their website here.


Let’s continue with another shot from Passau. This is the Prinzregent-Luitpold-Brücke right at the tip of the city, close to where the Danube and Inn lakes merge into one. I wanted a nice shot of the bridge, with the castle in the back, but wanted a bit more movement in it, so a passing bus really helped with it quite a lot.

I took this shot not that late in the evening, but since it was rainy, it got dark really quickly. This is a single exposure, edited in Lightroom and Photoshop.

Swith to Aurora

For those of you who are thinking of giving Aurora HDR a try, they are currently having a promotion campaign, where you will get a discounted price for Aurora, if you can show that you are using a different software right now. Head over to the Aurora web-page to find out more. You can also check out my review of it.

Split in the middle

I enjoyed a lot of rain last week, with the weather changing almost every hours during some days. And while taking photos, I even managed to catch the change in one of them :)

Here you can see a till clear sky on one side, while the rain is already coming in on the other one. And it even shown a rainbow for few minutes. This is a single exposure, edited in Lightroom and Photoshop.
