All Saint’s Day 2018

I have been posting a photo from the All Saint’s Day every 1st November for years now. And this time it will not be different. Again I stopped by the nearby Martin’s cemetery today, and took few shots of the remembrance candles all the visitors are placing on the graves there.

As usually, the play of all the lights looked spectacular and made for one very beautiful atmosphere. This photo was taken at one of the statues in the Martin’s Cemetery. Visitors placed all the candles so they created this heart shape, and I tried to catch it in this photo. Was not completely easy, as I was surrounded by people, but with the 12mm Laowa lens I could stand really close and still get the whole shape.

This is a 5 exposure HDR blended with the original exposures. HDR created in Oloneo Photoengine, blended in Photoshop.

Work vs. Play

I shared this on my Twitter account, so I though I will also put this here. This is my work area vs. my play area. As you can see, I like big monitors and having a lot of consoles :)

In the snow

No, this photo is not actual :) I was looking through my Lightroom library, and randomly stopped on this one, so I thought I edit it and share it with you. I took this shot in early 2015, during a very rare winter day. It just snowed like crazy.

Unluckily, after about a hour in this snow, my camera broke (5D mark II at that time) and I could not take much more photos. But luckily, it started working again the next day, and worked since. Strange how things sometime repair themselves.

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

More photo prints available

I have been adding more photos into the shop gallery recently. Mostly very high resolution photos and panoramas, as I think those look the best.

So as always, you can go to the Shop gallery here, and check them out. Not only prints, but also downloads for personal and commercial use are available in the shop. Also, if you are interested in any other photo, that is not available there, feel free to message me using the contact form here.

Autumn colors reflection


By a coincidence, today’s photo is another long exposure. Even if it does not really look like it is. I took a photo at the Strbske Pleso lake in High Tatras, Slovakia. It was a bit windy day, so there were ripples in the water. To get around it, I used a 10 stop ND filter, to lengthen the exposure. This time I used the VFFOTO 10 stop circular filter, as when using the 70-200mm lens, it’s just easier to use one of these than a square filter. You can find my review of this filter here.

For this photo I used a single exposure, edited in Lightroom and Photoshop.

SNP bridge light beams

The restaurant at the top of the SNP bridge (or still refereed to as the New bridge) is called UFO. Quite the obvious name, as it looks a bit like a flying saucer. And during the White night event, with all the light beams coming from it, it looked like a UFO even more.

I ended up using 6 exposures here. Since there were people walking by I took two sets of 5 exposures, to have enough to be able to remove them from the final photo. I also did from -3 to +1 EV as the bridge was quite brighter in comparison to the surrounding area. I then combined 5 exposures into a HDR in Oloneo Photoengine and then blended that with the original exposures in Photoshop.

Light beams over Bratislava

One more, and last for now, photo from the White night event in Bratislava. This is the same lights, as in yesterday’s photo, but this time from probably my most favorite view from the city. I really like how it turned out with the lights being nice top frame of the photo.

This is a two shot panorama, each shot from 5 exposures. I again used PTgui to create the panorama blends and then Oloneo Photoengine to create the base photo. I then blended in the original shots back into it, in Photoshop.
