I took this photo some time ago and never posted it. So I’m doing it today. It’s been more of an experiment, where I tried to see how much stars I could get right in the middle of a city. And thanks to a very clear sky, I actually got quite a lot.

This is a blend of 80 exposures, created in Photoshop.
City sky

As winter came and went again (it snowed for a whole evening) I still don’t have any new winter photos. And I so wanted to have a little more snow here. But since there is none, I looked through my old photos to find some. And here is one, taken two years ago, high up in the High Tatras. This was taken from the Lomnicky peak, which is 2634 meters over the sea level.

Over the clouds

I thought about going out to take some snow shots, but the weather is just crazy recently. In the evening, the snow is there, and it’s gone again in the morning. The next day it snows again, but it dissapers again very quickly. It’s like all 4 season every two day. So until the weather decides what it wants to be, here is one photo from last year, when there was winter at least for few days in a row :)

Little snow by Danube

I didn’t take that many photos during Christmas. A nice weather and snow were just not there. And over time I learned, that it’s not worth it to go out shooting if I know I wont use the photos in the end. But of course I took few photos here and there and this is one of them. This was taken in the center of Spisska Nova Ves in eastern Slovakia. I was experimenting a little with the composition, as the lights were too far from anything interesting, so I used them to frame the church instead.

This is a manual blend from 3 exposures (took 5, but only needed three) done in Photoshop.
Cold evening

As I mentioned yesterday, I will end this week with all fireworks shots. So here is a new one from the New years, and tomorrow I will be getting back to my classic weekly schedule :)

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