For the next few days, I’m giving myself a bit of a Christmas vacation, while I will be visiting my parents. So there will be no new photos or articles, only reposts of older, mostly Christmas themed photos.
For today, a Christmas tree photo from the Central shopping center in Bratislava.
No, there is no snow in Bratislava yet, and if it continues like this, there will probably be none for a while. But I was looking through my photos from the beginning of this year, and I noticed I never posted this one.
These were just two random snowman at the Bratislava castle fortification, which I noticed while taking photos from there. So I had to take few shots :)
This is a blend of two images. One for most of the photos, second to tone down few highlights.

Wow, how quickly the years passed. Only few more weeks and we have the New years fireworks again. And already, in the back of my head, I’m thinking on where to go to get a new views of the fireworks. I liked this spot, with the castle in the background, but since I used it two years in a row, it’s time for a change. Maybe I try again from the castle this time :)
Here is a shot from the 1.1.2014. This is a single exposures, edited in Lightroom, Photoengine and Photoshop.

It’s a bit funny, that now, after the reconstruction, the Old bridge in Bratislava, will be the newest. Actually I’m curious if they change the name, as they did with thew New bridge (which is now the SNP bridge). Let’s be surprised.
This is an older shot, before the reconstruction, still waiting for the area to be fully accessible again to get some new photos with how it looks now :) This is a HDR form 5 shots, created in Oloneo Photoengine, finished in Photoshop.
