Cloudy reflection

To keep some variety in the photo, let’s break away from the city ones for today, and have a bit of nature. Today’s photo is a long exposure shot taken at the Strbske pleso lake in High Tatras in Slovakia. It was a bit windy, which created ripples on the water. So to get a a reflection, I decided to go with a long exposure here.

This is a single exposure edited in Photoshop. I used the VFFOTO 10 stop ND filter here.

Autumn view from the park

Let’s do another Autumn view photo today. I took this one few weeks ago in the Janko Kráľ City Park here in Bratislava. I wanted to frame the castle under the branches of the trees, but I could not find a spot from which I got a nice frame. So instead, I tried it differently. Having the tree in the middle splits the photo into two parts, each one having a bright object in it, and ti creates a nice contrast. Hope you like it too :)

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

Light projection on the Bratislava castle

So the photos from yesterday did not work out as much as I hoped to. I did not notice how much the flood lights created flares. I only saw them when I brightened the photos. Looks like will have to try the tower again, but will maybe wait for some snow first. But I did get a nice photo so that’s what I’m sharing today.

I wanted this as a panorama with the full fortification visible. But as right around the right bottom corner here is the flood light, that did not worked out that well. So I focused more on the castle, as there was this light projection on it. I had no idea they are doing this, but it was nice change for the photo :)

Fireworks over the city

Still three weeks until the end of the year, but it’s time to think from where I try to get a nice photo of the New Years fireworks. And I have to say, I have no idea yet. I don’t want to the same location as last or the year before, but not sure if I find something better. Let see what I find this time :)

This is a shot from 3 years ago. I got nothing last year due to very strong fog, and the year before I took photos form the Old bridge. This is a single exposure, edited in Photoshop.

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.
