I don’t really like taking photos in the rain, but there is one good thing about it. With all the moisture in the air, it starts reflecting all the lights from the streets and so giving more color and light to the scene. Of course I would’t even try it if I didn’t knew that my camera is weatherproof. But after quite a few photos taken in rain, I’m quite sure that it will survive a few more :)

Water colors

Sometime not even the blue hour gets you a blue sky. Especially whet it only stopped raining a short while ago. But all the clouds still reflect the street light, which can mad the whole scene yellow. Sometimes it looks quite interesting.

Same here, at 5am in the morning in Ljubljana. It was quite cold and the streets were still vet. But the photo came out quite nicely. This is a HDR created in Oloneo Photoengine from 5 exposures and then blended with some of the original brackets in Photoshop.

Google +

Recently I’ve been using my tablet more, and so I have been playing more with different apps, and one of the was the recent Google+ app. And I have to say, compared to Facebook, it was much better. It was such a pleasure to use, that I decided to start again posting my photos there. So if you are there, feel free to add me under http://plus.google.com/+MiroslavPetrasko

City jungle

It’s so nice to see so many trees inside a city center. It makes the city shots so much greener, even if they stand in the way sometime of a nice composition. Here I wanted to get a nice shot of the Cobblers Bridge, just could not find a spot with a nice view next to it. So I took one from a little further away from a nearby pedestrian bridge. But as that one was shaking like crazy every time someone walked over it, I had to get it in the very early morning.

I don’t know why, but according to wikipedia, this bridge has four names. Old bridge, State bridge, Main bridge and also Drava bridge. Look like they really could not agree on one name. And I thought I made an error when I called it the Main bridge in one of my posts and the Old bridge in another :)

The bridge with four names

I think love locks can be found in any city. But this is the first time I seen a bridge that almost looks like it was made for them. This could look very interesting once it’s completely filled. This is the Mesarski bridge in Ljubljana. It looks quite interesting, as the middle part is concrete, but the sides are from glass, so see through.

I took this during the evening blue hour. The sky was very cloudy, but as usually blue hour saved the day :). This is a manual blend from 5 shots.
