I usually go out shooting with a lot of gear. But sometimes it’s nice to go just with the camera and a single lens, and do something different. So as finally it was a little more sunny, I took a walk through the Botanical Garden here in Bratislava to take few shots. It really was quite relaxing :)

Free Zoner Photo Studio 15 PRO

I came across this link, so maybe some of you will find it interesting. Until the end of today, you can download a free copy of Zoner Photo Studio 15 PRO. This is great for those who are looking for a Lightroom alternative on the cheap :) Go and get it from here now :)

My camera

This is more of a random shot. I usually only have one camera with me, but I have a borrowed 7D right now, so last time I was out I took also few shots of my camera :) Maybe will use them in some of my guides later on. But here is one of them I liked the most. Btw. I was thinking of doing a gear video, to show what I use. Would you be interested in seeing something like that?

This is a single exposure, taken handheld. I applied a little Analog Efex on it, just for fun. Btw. for those who would like to ask what’s the green cube on my camera (there are always few :)), it’s a 3-axis bubble lever, and you can get one on the cheap from Ebay.
My camera

I spend the Eastern at my parents home, and I though I get some new photos in the area while I’m there. Of course since the Spring is here, it rained most of the time. But we stopped at Bardejovske Kupele (Barjdejov spa town) to get some of the great mineral water that is available there (if any of you are ever in the area, go there, taste it, it’s free, you will love it, and its very healthy :)), and we also stopped by the open air museum there. The weather was ok for a while, so I’m quite happy with the few photo I took.

This one is of one of the two Churses there. This time I went with a vertorama from two photos, each one created from 5 exposures, combined in PTGUI and then Oloneo Photoengine. Check out the guides section for how to create HDR panoramas.
Spring is here

And we are at the and of the look back at some of my photos from recent years, and if all is at it should be, from tomorrow I will start posting again new photos (from Dubai presumably :))

And as a last one, here is a shot from Kosice, taken in Summer 2012

Another one from my all time favorites. A very popular of mine photos, and still the most viewed and favorited of them on my Flickr account. This one was taken in the Summer of 2011.
