Autumn light

Don’t have any new photo, so here goes one from my archives, that I only edited recently. This one is taken in the Autumn of 2014, from under the SNP bridgge in Bratislava. I was still on the 5D mark II at that time. One good thing about shooting RAW photos, you can edit them anytime later, and still get good results. Sometimes even better as the editing software gets better with time too.

This is a blend of 4 exposures, done in Photoshop.

A cold evening panorama

Usually everyone only post’s winter photos in winter. Not really sure why. Not like everyone just shares photos that took that day anyway. Especially if you take many photos and post often. I post old photos all the time too. But somehow I also don’t share many winter ones outside winter. Feels a bit strange. Let’s try one today :)

This is one of my favorite spots to take photos in Bratislava. It’s like a go to spot to try new things. Very rarely there is someone there and one is never bothered. For this photo I used 6 exposures, two sets of three brackets to create a two shot panorama. Blended together and then combined in Photoshop.

Night tram on the Old bridge

Today’s photo is of a night tram passing on the Old bridge in Bratislava. As you can see, the bridge is quite colorfully lit up in this one. This is not every day, this was just because of the White night even last year, when they install lights all over the city. I was ever standing on the tracks when I took it, which I would not do any other day there. And I don’t suggest anyone does it.

At first I was not sure if I even edit this photo. It was very dark and a little part of the bridge was missing. And I really don’t like that. But I tried and I got a result I liked. This is a single exposure, broken up into multiple and then blended back together. Then I used a second photo from that night, from which I pasted in the missing part.

And here is also a comparison to the original RAW file. As you can see, it was really dark, and the size is a bit differnt, as I added the part on top.

In front of the Bratislava Castle

While I hoped to get some photos while in Zagrab in Croatia yesterday, I had no luck. It rained most of the day, and not just a drizzle. So time to go back to my photo archive for a another photo.

This one was taken from the area right in front of the Bratislava castle. It’s actually not a single photo, but a panorama from 4 taken with the tilt-shift lens. I took a photo of the middle part, then shifted the lens left and right to get the sides. To finish up, I shifted the lens up to get the top of the castle into the shot. That left empty corners, but since that area is just the sky, it was easy to fix in Photoshop.

Infrared view of the Bratislava Castle

Something different for today. It has been very sunny and hot in Bratislava recently, so I thought I try something that would fit for this weather. And it was trying to use an infrared filter. I tried one many years ago, when I just started with photography, but I did only very few photos with it. This time I did a few more. Not completely happy with the results yet, but with a bit of practice, I hope to get the one I want :)

This is a single exposure, edited in Lightroom and Photoshop. I used the HOYA Infrared R72 filter here. Not sure if thats the best one, but currently have no others to try.

And here is also a comparison to the original RAW file. As you can see, as with all infrared photos, it’s very very red. But a bit of editing helped here a lot :)
