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.

This is a blend of three exposures, done in Photoshop.

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.

Sunny and stormy

I wanted a completely different photo here. What I wanted is to catch the sun right on top of the Bayterek tower, as it looks like a torch anyway. But as I was waling around, trying to find a good spot to take the photo from, the clouds came, and made it a bit impossible. The weather was at the same time really sunny, and a bit stormy :)

Still, I took many photo, including this one from by the nearby fountains. This is a two shot blend, created in Photoshop.

Searching for ones own photos

Sometime I do a revers search on some of my photos. I try not to do it, as it’s really depressing. So many people used them on their websites, and almost no one ever gives me credit as the author of the photo.

Here and there I get contacted by companies that represent photographers in legal actions against sites like these, and while I prefer not to do so, one day it may be too much to ignore. Funny how easy is to include a line of text with my name and link back to the site. Still seems to much to ask for from some :/

Sphere building in blue

I shared with you already few images of the Expos 2017 sphere building in Astana, and this is another one. I tried to have them in different colors, so here is one in blue.

This is a blend of two exposures, where the second one was used only to remove a flare from the photo.
