Most popular Instagram posts

It’s quite interesting to see which of my posts are the most popular. And the Best nine site offers a nice recap for Instagram every year. As I post there mostly at random, from my photo library, this are from all over the place. But I can see why these became the most liked ones :) You can follow my Instagram account here.

Here are the best nine from 2016 and 2017.

Mirror like Danube

The weather today in Bratislava was so nice. Why could it not be like this for the midnight fireworks I don’t know, but it usually work out like this. What can you do :)

So I went out to take few photo and here is one of them. For this one, I used a VFFoto 10stop ND filter and I did a 4 minute exposure, to get the Danube river very soft almost mirror like. I still had to brighten the photo quite a bit, as I overestimated how much light there was, but it still work out fine.

This is a single exposure, edited in Lightroom, finished in Photoshop.

New year in the fog

Happy new year everyone. Hope you all have a great start into the new year. For me in Bratislava, it was a bit foggy. As every year, I tried to get some new photos of the fireworks. And while I got some, you can’t see much in them. The whole city is currently covered in a heavy fog, and it got even worse when the smoke from the fireworks was added. Still, here are few from today, looking more artistic this time :)

Happy New Year

Since I don’t have a really nice photo from today, here is a backup one, from few years ago, that I edited today :)

Almost a year ago

The year really quickly approaches its end. I still feel like only yesterday I took this photo, on the 1st January of this year. It really was cold :) Now I’m already thinking, where do I go for fireworks this year. If I stay in Bratislava, or try one of the capitals of surrounding countries. Hard decision. Who knows, maybe I do nothing, as my cold allergy is horrible right now. My hands hurt like hell. Oh what fun :)

This is a single exposure, taken last New years celebration in Bratislava, edited in Lightroom and Photoshop.

In the distance

And another fog photo. It was actually funny when we arrived to this spot. Fist time we were to this locations, and we could not find where the mountains were. You just could not see anything. Luckily, after a hour or so, the fog went down a bit, and we found them :)

This is a two shot panorama, combined in Lightroom, finished in Photoshop.

Hviezdoslav in the snow – Plotagraph

I did not know that, with a Plotagraph Pro you can also add particles to photos. Stuff like snow, rain or flowers. It is very easy and just looks great. The only problem with this is, that you can’t compress the resulting video as much as other Plotagraphs. There is just too much movement for that. But still I thought I share one with you :)

This is the Hviezdoslav statue in Bratislava. This snowy photo really fits to this heavy snow animation, as it really was like that that day. I’m still not 100% sure about how I animated the background, but after over 50 different tries, I ended with this one. Hope you like it.

The autoplay on this one is dissabled, so it does not load all the time, so if you want to see it, hit play.

(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)
