The weather is playing tricks on me these days. The second day in a row, I got up before sunrise, looked out the window and it’s not raining. So I get dressed, take my gear, and the moment I step outside it starts raining. I presume, the day I stay in bed, will be the best sunrise ever :)

So no sunrise shot here, but here is one I took yesterday evening. I’m not really sure, the bicycle was really broken, but from the way it’s standing, I would think so :)

My luck with the weather yesterday was just horrible. First I forgot about the time change, so I was waiting for the sunset one hour too early. Then it started raining like crazy (which is really bad when you camera is not weather sealed) and only after I gave up, returned to my flat here and thought I get no photos for that evening anymore, it just stopped and the sky completely cleared up. Really hard to predict the weather conditions here.

But still, I just turned around, and went back out to get at least few shots. And here is one of them. This is a two shot blend, as I needed a darker exposure for the building in the middle.

I wanted to share with you a photo from Amsterdam yesterday, but due to the late arrival, I was not able to. But today I got to take new photos, so here is the first one. As this is quite a popular spot for photographers, I thought to go with a bit more unusual composition, where the TSE lens really helped a lot. I hope you like it.

This is a single exposure, edited in Lightroom and Photoshop.

I already posted few photo from the Amsterdam canals, but this one is from a different spot than all the others :) There are just so many spots like this there, with every other street being a canal :)

I’m currently running around Vienna, and will be back tomorrow. So I hope I had some nice weather (I’m writing this few days before :) ) and have for you a nice new shot from Vienna tomorrow :)

Late night Amsterdam

Work in progressAs I always say, it’s very nice to take photos in the early morning. Absolutely no people, and you can even take panoramas without anybody being in the way :) Not that I had a nice sunrise while in Amsterdam, but I did what I always do in that case. Try to do the most shooting during the blue hour, and include only very little from the sky.

This one was quite a big panorama, created from 5 tiles, each one from 4 exposures. You can see a work in progress shot on the side, from when I tone-mapped it in Oloneo Photoengine.
