Few days ago I added a new tutorial to this blog, this time about how to add glow to your photos. I use this technique in almost all of my photos, and I think you will find it interesting (and very easy :)). You can see the tutorial here: Adding glow to your photos. You can also find a Photoshop action there, which does all that for you :)
The Morning Light
I just cant stop editing photos from that morning. All have such a great sky, that other photos looks just boring :). So here is another one from last Monday in Budapest. It was very funny to me, to see a young couple sitting right next to the place I was, watching a movie on a notebook, completely ignoring the stunning sunrise that was in front of them. I wonder why they went there at such an hour if not for that.

As I mentioned yesterday, I had few more photos of the Liberty bridge prepared. Most of them are from the sunrise, but this one is from the evening blue hour. You can actually very easily determine if its evening or morning just by looking at the water. If the reflection is nice, it’s morning, it its not nice it’s evening. There are so many ships on the Danube, that the almost water never gets calm in the evening.
This week is mostly about bridges, as that’s almost the only thing I took photos of earlier this week in Budapest. Somehow bridges are my most favorite photo subject, closely followed by reflections. And here I have both. I really prefer to have a real reflection in my photos. And to be able to get one in Budapest, one really has to get up early. Already around 6 am the ships start to go up and down the Danube and the water traffic is quite in the way. But right around the sunrise, the water is very calm and reflects everything like a mirror.
