Light tunnel in the morning

I still don’t know if this was a permanent light installation, or there was an event that this light tunnel was in Astana, Kazakhstan. But I noticed it while passing by, as my hotel was close by. And it was on the whole night. So one morning I decided to go to it to take few photos. I went there around 5 in the morning. I edited photos through the night, so I was up anyway :) As you can see, it rained beforehand, so I had some nice puddle to work with there. I put my tripod as low as it could go, and too this photo.

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

Thematic Pavilion II

I still have a lot of unedited photos from Astana in Kazakhstan. While I was there only few days, and it rained most of the time, I still managed (thanks to a great local guide) to take many photos. It was also my first time there, and usually when I visit a city for the first time, I take much more photos than normally. I just want to capture everything :)

I took this photo in the Expo 2017 Area, behind the Sphere building there. It started raining quite heavily, and I still wanted to take photos. But I was limited in my lenses, as for instance the 12mm or the 17TSE I use are not weather sealed, so could not use those. I had to stick with the 24-70 and the 16-35 from Canon.

For this photo, I actually stood under a crazy looking roof. You can see it’s reflection on the right side. The whole complex is looking very organic and quite abstract. But it hid me from the rain for a bit :)

This is a three exposure blend, edited in Photoshop.

Night traffic in Astana

A shot from Astana, Kazakhstan is the photo for today. I was already slowly finishing for that evening, where I was crossing one of the two pedestrian bridges in the center. So from one, I took a photo of the second one. And this is it.

Light in the park

The Bayterek monument in Astana, Kazakhstan really shines at night. Does not really make for easy photo blending but looks really nice. Btw. I still don’t know if its Bayterek or Baiterek. Still seen both being used.

This is a blend of 3 exposures, done in Photoshp.

Evening over Astana

Back to Astana in Kazakhstan with another photo from there. This one was taken from a roof of one of the skyscrapers in the city. It was a great view, even if it was right after a thunderstorm, which makes things a bit worse. You may have noticed that sometime, you can focus as much as you want and the shots just are not sharp as you want them to be. This is sometime caused by the weather. If there is too much moisture in the air, you will just get soft photo. And you can’t do anything about it.
