Light beams from the SNP bridge

How about one more photo from yesterday’s White night event in Bratislava. This time it’s one of the light beams from the top of the SNP bridge in the city center. They moved quite a lot, but looks like I had quite the luck when I took the shot, that they were more stable.

For this photo I went with a two shot vertorama. For each shot I did 5 exposures, as the light on the bridge walkway are very bright. I first combined all exposures into blend planes in PTgui, then created a base HDR in Oloneo Photoengine, which I then blended with the base exposures in Photoshop. Just a few steps to create a photo :)

White night lights on the Old bridge

Today was again the White night event in Bratislava, where there are various light installations around the city. I usually go and take few photo, but I’m not such a fan of big crowds, so I only take some around the center.

So here is one I took at the new Old bridge, that is currently light up in various colors and it all also changes a bit. Looks quite nice actually :)

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

My Gear

I just check out my My Gear page and wow is it out of date. Another one to go on a list of stuff that one needs to be updates. And if you wonder what my most used combination it’s the Canon 5D mark IV with the Canon TS 17mm f4 lens. It’s like the perfect combination for architecture shots. Just not that great when it rains :)

Morning fog

I would love to have more fog shots, but usually am in the fog, not above it. For instance, in Bratislava there is a lot of fog in the spring or autumn, but there is no accessible spot to get over it. But it’s sometimes easier in the mountains.

Today’s photo is one of those, taken at the eastern side of High Tatras. Taken right before sunrise.

This is a three shots panorama, combined in Lighroom, edited in Photoshop.

And here are few details:

So many games

Have you seen the Xbox sale? So many games to play. I already picked up few, but now if they somehow managed so a day had more hours so I got more time to play :). Did you picked up something?

Cloudy skies over Strbske Pleso

I posted a similar panorama of this view months ago, but here is one more. This time I went a bit more darken with the editing, making the clouds much more prominent.

This is a three shot panorama, combined in Lightroom, edited in Photoshop. I used a 10 stop ND filter to get a long exposure here. The panorama is 42Mpix big. Would be bigger, but I like to leave quite a lot of overlap for merging.

Top Spots

The top spots pages keep on being the most popular part of the blog. They now make around half of all visits to this blog. I’m very happy that so many of you find them useful :) Here are the links to all the ones you can find on the blog, hopefully there will be more soon.

Night in the city

I should get more photos of Bratislava. Somehow, with all the travel, I’m not in the mood to take photos when I’m home. It even crazier, that I never ever took a sunrise photo here. I should definitively do that one day soon.
