New keyboard and mouse

For many years now I have been using an ergonomic keyboard from Microsoft. I used every model they released in the last 10-15 years. But recently I had been having issues, as all the new ones are wireless and just caused strange problem. So in the end, I decided to change the brand of what I use for the first time in years. So now I got the Xiaomi Gaming keyboard and also mouse. They look quite nice, but it is quite a change from what I had before.

Even I’m curious to see if I get used to them or I switch back soon. The last time I tried a different mouse (Logitech MX I think) I had to switch back within a week, as my hand hurt like if somebody broke it. I just could not use it. Hopefully this will not happen this time.

Midnight reflection

I took this image on the 31st of December of last year, few minutes before the New Year. I was actually on the way to take photos of the fireworks, but I as was walking to my destination, I noticed this puddle with this cool reflection. So even though I had only short time left I had to stop and take few shots here.

This is a two shot vertorama, taken at the new Old Bridge in Bratislava. Mostly edited in Lightroom, with only few tweaks in Photoshop.

Entering Bratislava

I have not added a plotagraph in a while. And this is one I already shared on my Instagram quite a while ago, but never posted it here. So here it is :) So this the beautiful river cruise ship AmaViola as it enters Bratislava. And I can say that, I spend many days on this ship, so I know how great it is. I took this photo from the Old bridge, as the ship was entering Bratislava and getting ready to dock.

Then I went into Plotagraph Pro and animated the water, to make it look like it’s permanently moving.

You can check out my Plotagraph Pro review here, and a guide how to create them here.

(if you use an older web browser, you may only see a static image, if you are on a mobile, please hit the play button to see the Plotagraph in motion)

Autumn in the city

Let’s bring a bit of Autumn colors to the blog with today’s photo. I took this one about a week ago, while doing some sunset panoramas down by the Danube. The light created these huge lens flares, but in the end I decided to keep them in the photo. They create an interesting framing around the lamp.

This is a blend of two exposure, created in Photoshop.

Sunset at the Bratislava Castle

I do like colorful photos. And sunset can give you so much color. And autumn and early winter sunsets can be so beautiful. Like this one. This is a bit different view of Bratislava castle, as this photo is taken from the Michael’s Gate tower. The balcony there is easily accessible if you visit the medieval weapons museum that is in the tower. Just having a sunset during you visit is only possible in Winter as they close quite early.

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

Soft sunset in Bratislava

I been a bit sick recently so I have not been out to take photos in a while. But I decided to go out today, and I ended at my favorite spot in the city center right after sunset. So today, I have for you a new photo from Bratislava.

This is a two shot panorama. I used a 10 stop ND filter here from VFFOTO. I did quite underexpose the shot, but with the RAWs from the Canon 5D mark IV I was able to overexpose enough to get what I wanted. Panorama combined in Lightroom, finished in Photoshop.
