You would think that finding a statue like this in Bratislava would surprise me, but not really. As modern art in Bratislava goes, this is quite normal :) I took this photo by River park. I haven’t been there in a long time so I went there today, to look whats new there. And they have few new very cool statues.

This is a manual blend from 4 shots, used mostly to darken the light reflections on the statue (but I could have used a more underexposed photo)
Public Nudity

This is my very first photo, where I used the ND filter to achieve a long exposure. I really like how the Danube here looks so smooth. The exposure for the water was 80 seconds.

This photo is a manual blend from three exposes. One long exposure for the sky and water and two bright normal exposures to brighten the bridge.

What I really like about photos like this, is trying to identify everything that’s in the photo. Like for this one, from left to right, there are the Three towers, Istropolis, Doubletree hotel, Avion shoping park, the airport, Central and much more :) It’s funny how taking photos in a city makes you know the city much better. Btw. the line in the sky is a plane taking off :)

This is a manual blend from 5 shots, taken from the Slavin memorial above Bratislava.
The Urban Jungle

Those of you who follow also my personal FB account probably noticed that the whole day I was busy with salsa photos so I had not much time to edit my classic stuff (and that is after I was until 4am at the salsa party :) ). But anyway, I did a quick edit so I keep my photo a day blog running :) Hope you like it :)

I love taking HDR photos, but from time to time I have to do a different kind of photography, so it doesn’t become repetitive. And as each year, I always go to the motorbike exhibition in Bratislava to take a few shots. And I was there again today. Only for about an hour, as I was surprised by the number of people there. Too much for my taste :)

Hope you like the shots :) And if you do, here are the ones from last year Girls & Bikes 2012
