This is just one of those photo situations, where you just have to go with a HDR. For a moment I even thought of just using the darkest exposure, and so a silhouette shot. But that I remembered, that that’s just not my style :)

This is a HDR from 6 exposures, created in Oloneo Photoengine, finished in Photoshop. I wanted to get this nice yellow/golden glow in the sky here, and I hope I got it :)

The golden sunset

There still is snow in Bratislava so I thought I should go out and take some new photos. But then I woke up with a nasty cold today, so instead, I’m siting at home, trying to get better quickly. But instead of a new photo, here is one taken a year ago.

This is a HDR from 5 exposures, created in Oloneo Photoengine, finished in Photoshop.

It’s been long time since I posted a photo of the Apollo bridge, so I’m posting one today. Maybe it’s time to get some more photos of it again, try a some new composition :)

At Danube

So most of the snow from yesterday already disappeared, but I will still try to edit few more photos with it. I just love the look with all the snow. This is again not a B&W photo, but I did desaturated few billboards in the background, as they were too visible and just didn’t fit with the look I wanted.

Btw. my camera started working again. Not sure if its permanent, but its great for now.

This is a single exposure, edited in Lightroom and Photoshop

Broken camera

While taking photos today, my camera broke. And it looks like that the same part went as on my old 450D, the shutter. So right now I have absolutely nothing to shoot with (until tomorrow when I will have a borrowed 7D for the time being :)). Of course I will have it repaired as soon as possible, but it also shows that it’s time to look for a new one. And if those Canon rumors I have been seeing recently I true, I already know what it will be :)

So much snow

I’ve been complaining for some time now, that there was no real winter this year. And today, the winter started. It has been snowing for almost the whole day, and of course I run out immediately to get some photos. Of course I didn’t get that many due to the camera problem I mentioned, but I at least got few. And here is one of the. The SNP bridge, almost completely hidden by all of the falling snow.

I took this only hand-held, as there was no reason for multiple brackets. This is a single exposure, edited in Lightroom and Photoshop. And btw. this is not a black&white photo. I never did a conversion. It just looked like this with all the snow :)
