Morning clouds over Astana

A simpler photo today. I took this one while exploring Astana in the very early morning hours. I was actually on my way to the new pedestrian bridge, you can see on the left in this photo. It looks really great in photos, specially when you are on it.

But I can’t show you a photo of it, as I was not able to get onto it. It was still under construction when I was there. Should be opened now already though. So if you go to Astana, you should check it out :) The bridge can be found here.

So for this photo I focused more on the moving clouds over the city. This is a single exposure, edited in Lightroom and Photoshop.

Night at the fountain

I was taking photos in the area round the center of Astana, and I was getting ready to finish for the day. It was just too dark already. But then I saw the fountain and though, I could still get some nice shots with the colorful lights in in. So I walked to it, set up my camera, took one shot, and the light turned off :). Just my luck.

But I still got one photo, and this is it. This is a blend of 5 exposures, done in Photoshop. Mostly I just had to blend the tower in the center, as you can see it’s crazy bright compared to it’s surroundings.

Looking down in Astana

Let’s get back to updating. For today, another photo from Astana. This one was taken from the top of one of the skyscrapers in the city. I wanted to catch as much as I could of the view, so I went with the 12mm lens here.

And you may notice a really strong perspective distortion, but this time it’s on purpose. The perspective distortion here gives a bit of a feeling of vertigo and better represents how high it was taken from.

This is a two shots blend, done in Photoshop.

Rainy reflection

I’m off for a few days, so there will be no updates until next week here. But until than, here is another rainy shot from Astana in Kazakhstan. And yeah, the week I was there I was really lucky for rain. But I got the reflection, which is great :)

This is a two exposures blend, done in Photoshop. Of course this is the Expo 2017 sphere building there :)

Presidential Palace in Astana

Let’s go back to Astana in Kazakhstan with today’s photo. This is the Presidential Palace right in the center. I really wanted to take more photos of it, but I was asked by a policeman not to do so. What can you do. Still I got this one :)

As you can see, this is another one taken after a strong rain, where I got this really nice reflection by standing right next to a puddle. I do like to take photos like this :)

This is 3 shots blended together in Photoshop, mostly due to quite bright lights lighting up the palace.
