Evening reflection in Birmingham

Have you watched the Microsoft event today? It was quite interesting. Nice to see where computing is going. I still have the Surface Pro 4 I got when it came out, and I still don’t feel that I need to upgrade it. But maybe one of the new devices next year will be the ones that tempt me to upgrade.

Let’s stay in the UK with another photo, this time one taken at the canals in Birmingham. Most people don’t even know, but there are more canals in Birmingham than in Venice. But the city is also a bit bigger. Still, they make for coll reflection.

This is a three exposure blend, done in Photoshop.

During my stay in Birmingham in April this year, I had quite a bad luck for weather, and had no nice sky. So I tried to get something interesting in the photo and as the area around Selfridges is quite a busy spot for bus traffic, that is what I tried to capture. At least partially it covers the sky.

This is a manual blend from 3 shots (I took 5, bad had no need for 2 of them)

I really liked taking photos by the canals in Birmingham. Looks like I will have to go to Venice sooner or later.

This is a manual blend from 3 shots. I took 5, but had no need for the brightest exposures.

What a colorful reflection the Mailbox gives (Mailbox is a shopping center in Birmingham, UK). Usually you don’t get so much different colors in landscape and architectures shots. But as the Mailbox is red, I had a nice blue hour and the surrounding light were yellow and green, I got everything :)
