Last few hours

Only last few hours to join my photo contest. Now is the last chance. From tomorrow the voting starts :) You can get the complete description of the contest here.

Dubai Wallpapers

No new photo today, but something different. I updated the wallpapers section today with 5 new Dubai wallpapers. Two of them are huge 3840×1200, fit for two full-HD screen next to each other.



And another three for classic single screen setups.

Very high up 1920x1200
Dubai Marina Skyscrapers 1920x1200
Dubai Marina 1920x1200

Head over to the wallpapers page to download them, or you can also visit the wallpapers gallery on my portfolio site (just select that you want to see the original size in the bottom right of a photo, before you download from there)

Last day to join the contest

Tomorrow is the last day to post a submission to my photo editing contest, so if you still haven’t done so, now is the time. Just head over to the contest post, for all the links and rules. Good luck everyone :)

In between Jumeirah lake towers

Cant believe it’s already two months since I’ve been in Dubai. It passed by so quickly. But still have a lot of photos which I want to edit, but some are being a little more difficult that others.

This is one taken in the middle of the Jumeirah lake towers. It’s a HDR from 4 exposures created in Oloneo Photoengine, finished in Photoshop.

What are you listening to?

I had this discussion with few photographers, and always got a response, that when they are taking photos alone, they are listening to music. Strange that I never do that :) I always listen to audiobooks. But never books with a story, they are always from the non-fiction category. Right now it’s the Packing for mars by Mary Roach. Really quite insetting book and makes one think different about space exploration.

So what are you listening to? I’m just curious :)

Clear sky over Dubai

With the weather being really horrible last few weeks in Bratislava, I’m inclined to edit more sunny photo. It just has been raining almost every day for the past three weeks. Sometimes I feel like not even getting out of bed in the morning :)

So for today, I chosen a photo taken right around lunch in the Dubai marina. Actually this was the first photo I took there :) My plane to Dubai was 3 hours late, and since the arrival time was 11pm, I arrived to the flat I was staying at, at 3 in the morning. So getting up at lunch was the earliest I managed. Actually I got up so late almost every day, as we were shooting usually until very late at night :)

This is a HDR from 5 exposures, crated in Oloneo Photoengine, finished in Photoshop. Btw. the ISO 400 was a mistake. I change it so rarely, that I forgot to check it before taking the shot.

Photo shared by Huffington post

It always cool to see a photo of mine on home bigger page, and this time one was on the Huffington posts page. It was in an article called “Proof That Prague Is Europe’s Prettiest City”, so of course it was one of my Prague shots. For those who want to see the whole article, it can be find on their page :)


5 more days

5 more days to join my photo contest, sponsored by Oloneo. If you haven’t done so yet, now is the time :) Go here for details.

The huge crossing

This is one huge crossing, and looks just so interesting form high up. And so busy :)

The huge crossing

While taking photos of the Burj Al Arab was quite interesting. The light on top and on the nearby hotel changed quite often, and as many lights in Dubai, were very bright neon color. If you ever took a photo of something neon, you know how big a problem is to catch a nice color there. It just oversaturates everything a burns out any detail. But as I captured everything shining with a purple light in this photo, I decided to tone the whole photo in purple.

I was also thinking what to do with the very saturated top. In the end I only recovered it from one of the exposures, doing no desaturation on it. I think you can have one saturated color in a photo, as long as its not covering the whole photo. It creates a point that draws your eyes, but one also has to have less saturated part, for the eyes to rest. And I think it worked on this one (at least on my screen :) )
