More fireworks over Bratislava

Of course, I took more than one photo during the New Year fireworks yesterday. Strangely it feels already like distant pats. Really strange. I remember every year I took photos of the New Year fireworks, and it slowly changes into a blur of memories far away. Funny how the mind works. Still, I do hope all of you had a great start in the new year, and that this one goes by a bit slower :)

This photo again, I did a single RAW, which I copied and then edited twice. One for highlights one for shadows. Then I opened them in Photoshop and blended them together. Also, this was not a vertical shot. I did all the photos horizontally, as I was standing bit more to the side and hoped the fireworks explosion would spread out more over the sky. They did not. But a great thing about having a high-resolution camera is, that you can crop quite a lot, without really affecting the quality that much. So that’s what I did here.

Happy New Year

Happy New Year everyone. I start every year with a fireworks photo, and this year will not be any different. I went to the Old bridge again this year, but this time I went a bit more to the side. Like this I could also include all the people next to the Danube river in the foreground. Just to have the photos a bit different this year. It was very windy, but luckily it got better right as the fireworks started, so managed to get a sharp photo in the end.

This is a single exposure, split into two and blended back together in Photoshop.

Updates

There has been quite a lack of updates on the blog recently. And for a while, it will be that way. There are multiple reasons, but mostly, I did not have that many opportunities to take new photos recently, so not much new stuff to edit. Also, I returned to a daytime non-photography job now, and that had a big impact on my available time. But I do hope this all stabilizes quickly, and I get back to regular posting.

National Bank as a lighthouse

But today, let’s have a new photo. This is a vertorama of the National Bank of Slovakia building in Bratislava. During the White day earlier this year, that had this light installation on top, which made it look just like a huge lighthouse. So it was a perfect time to get a photo of it.

This shot is a combination of two photos for the vertorama, each one from two exposures. I did more than the two, but with the blur of the bus and the movement in the lights on top of the building, I ended up using only a few. All manually blended in Photoshop.

All Saint’s day candle lights

Since it’s the All Saint’s day today in Slovakia, how about some nice candle photos. I posted some almost every year on the All Saint’s day since I started the blog, and it will not be different this time. So here are few shots of the candle at the Martins Cemetery in Bratislava.

These are all blend of two exposure, done in Photoshop.

Autumn Bokeh

I tend to only post landscape and cityscape photos, but let’s get away from them for today. Here are few photos taken with the 50mm F1.4 lens. I played mostly with the bokeh here, to get a nice smooth background, with only few sharp points here and there. Hope you like them :)

These are all taken handheld, 50mm at f1.4 to f2.0. All taken in the Botanical garden in Bratislava.
