Clear water at Lago di Braies

I thought I post a photo I took yesterday of the lights on the top of the NBS building in Bratislava, but I don’t like the edit I did yet. I think I will have to have it standing around for a bit and try to edit it again in a few days. Sometimes when I try to edit the photo right away, I don’t get the result I want. A little distance to the time when it was taken can help.

But to post something in the meantime, here is a shot from Lago di Braies. This one was at the boat dock in the lake, taken a bit to the side. I had to wait a bit to have no one on the dock, and for the boat to stable a bit, as they were moving around. But I liked that I could see that something on the bottom of the lake, as it made for a nice leading line. So I waited.

This is a two shot vertorama, each shot blended from 3 exposures. All put together in Photoshop.

In the shade

Let’s do another, a bit different, view from the Lago di Braies om Dolomites, Italy. As I was walking around the lake, I was looking for a way to hide the sky a bit. The clouds just did not look that nice. So with the help of the 12mm lens, I found this spot. The branches of the tree were low enough, that while still standing relatively close, I could see them in the frame. Like this, I got a nice frame and also hid the sky a lot. And the roots make for a nice detail in the foreground.

This is a blend from 5 exposures, done in Photoshop. I had to use more exposures, since I was standing in the shade and that made the foreground quite dark.

Little chapel next to Lago di Braies

Today’s photo is another, different view from the Lago di Braies in Dolomites, Italy. This time I tried to get the little chapel that was next to it into one shot together with the lake. I really liked how the path curved towards it and that the little fence made a nice border on the left. To get all of that into the photo, I went with a panorama here. I also had to remove a few cars that were next to the chapel. They just really did not fit the mood I wanted for this photo. I thought about taking one photo a bit close to it, but there was some work done there, so decided against it in the end.

This is a two-shot panorama, taken with the help of a tilt-shift lens. Each shot blended from three exposures and combined in Photoshop.

Sunny day reflection at Lago di Braies

Today’s photo is another one from the Lago di Braies in Dolomites, Italy. I have most of my photos from this lake, as when I was there, the weather was best that day. This is a smaller part to the side of the lake. I wanted to do a photo from that little bridge, that you can see on the right, but there was a huge pile of broken tree branches in front of it in the water. And I did not want that in my photo. If you look in this photo, the spot from today’s photo was taken is on the left in it.

This is a two exposure blend, done in Photoshop. I used the 12mm lens here, to get a lot of the reflection in the photo.

At the rocks in Vernazza

I was just looking at the new Sony a7R IV specs and while they are good, nothing that really gives me that, I have to have one, feeling. It’s an evolution to what the old one was. The more I take photos, the less I’m impressed by specs of cameras. I dont use most of the things anyway when shooting in Manual.

But let’s get to today’s photo. This one is from the rocks next to the town of Vernazza in Cinque Terre in Italy. It was a very sunny day, with the sun right above the town when I took this. So instead of taking a photo of the city, I did some of the rocks. I used the VFFOTO 10 stop ND filter here to get the water silky smooth.

This is a blend of three exposures, done in Photoshop. I used Topaz Adjust AI to get a bit more color into it.
