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.

More from Lago di Braies

I really do not enjoy the warm weather we are having in Bratislava recently. It really makes it very uncomfortable to go out and take photos. I had to go yesterday for a bit, and that bright sun with zero clouds really does not make for great photos. But work is work :)

For today, I have for you another photo from Lago di Braies, as that was the most successful spot for me when in the Dolomites last month. This is a blend of three exposures, done in Photoshop. I used the 17 TSE lens here, and I shifted it down when I was taking this photo. This is because I was standing on the pier a bit higher from the boats and I wanted them more in the photo.

Lago di Misurina

Back to another lake in the Dolomites today. This is the Lago di Misurina. And before somebody asks, yes, this is a fake reflection, created in Photoshop. When we were at this lake, it still was mostly frozen over and covered with a bit of snow on top of it. And while I liked the top part of this photo, I really did not like the bottom one. There was no reflection and it was just boring. So I did a bit more in the editing.

I do hope to get back here this year, and get one with a real refelction. But for now, this is what I have. This is a two shot panorama, each shot blended from two exposures. Blended, merged and reflection create in Photoshop.
