Travel time

I’m off to another trip, so the will be probably no updates during the next week. And if you are curious where I’m off, its the beautiful city of Astana in Kazakhstan. Check out next week, when I will already have some photos from there :)

At the Old bridge

And since I’m a bit busy right now, here is just a quick photo of the new Old bridge in Bratislava.

This photo was taken with the 12mm Laowa lens, its from a single exposure, edited in Lightroom and Photoshop.

You will always get caught

I was just reading this article about this “photographer” from Singapore, and it’s just so funny (and also sad) that I thought I would share it with you.

How some people still don’t understand, that using other peoples photos is not worth it, I don’t know. With reverse image search it’ss just so easy to find thief’s. And it even looks like he has some Photoshop skills, why not use them and edit his own photos? Hard to understand….

Cold evening under the Old bridge

I had a bit busy day today, so will keep this short. This is a late winter shot, from a very cold evening, taken by the new old bridge. It’s quite wide, as I used the 12mm Laowa lens. It really looks great when standing next to a cool huge structure.

This is a blend of two exposures, one as a base, second one to get rid of the lens flares.

Clever Instagram spam

Instagram SpamWhile spam everywhere is crazy annoying, in a certain way one has to admire how clever it sometime is. Someone had to code a nice text generator, that not only creates the usernames, but also the messages so they don’t look like spam.

But on the other side, that person was stupid enough, to not make very simple mistakes. Like not sending the same message from multiple accounts to the same target. How can someone be so smart and stupid at a same time is a mystery.

Btw. when did social media got to be only about getting followers? Each day I get followed by many accounts, that just un-follow the next day. I don’t know how it is for others, but I rather be followed by 500 people that like my photos, than 5000 that don’t care.

This stile of trying to get followers just by following someone, hoping they follow back and then un-following again is just annoying. If you really so desperate for worthless followers, just pay for them. Will take less time and has the same effect in the end.

Down by the river

I have not posted a photo from Bratislava in a while so here is one. This is an early spring panorama, taken in the middle of the city, right next to the Danube. I got down completely next to the water and got it.

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

Spider clouds – plotagraph

I still try to animate fireworks in Plotagraph Pro, but still I don’t like the results. But I will try, try and try again :) For now, here is one of a clouds reflection, taken at the Kuchajda lake in Bratislava.

You can check out my Plotagraph Pro review here, and a guide how to create them here.

Lights in the river

I got the Nisi filter holder for the Laowa 12mm f2.8 lens today, and I though I would write about that for this blog post. But I went out to take some photos with it, and I just did not felt inspired. So I will leave that for tomorrow, and for today, a shot of the Bratislava city center, taken from the Apollo bridge.

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