Low clouds over Bratislava castle

It has been very rainy in Bratislava for the last few days, so for today, I have chosen a photo from a rainy evening. I really like when the clouds are like this, very low over the city. The lights from the city then can lit it up and give it color in the sky. And with a combination of that together with the lights reflecting into the river, you can get a really golden gloving photo.

For this photo, I used 6 exposures, as it was taken quite late and the castle was really bright compared to the rest of the area. Blended and edited in Photoshop.

Rainy morning at the Rijksmuseum

Today I have for you another photo from my huge photo archive. This one is from one very early rainy morning in Amsterdam. Something like we had today in Bratislava. But as you can clearly see from all the tulips, this was not taken in Autumn, but in the early Spring. That’s why there are also no people in this photo. I saw almost no one around so early in the morning.

This is a blend from 5 exposures, done in Photoshop. This is the fountain behind the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam, Netherlands.

Night city lights

I was editing this photo, and for the whole time, I had a strange feeling, that it’s smaller than it should be. The detail was just not there as I’m used to. And then I remembered, this is an older photo, taken with the Canon 5D Mark II. The Mark IV does not have that many megapixels more, only about 1/3rd more, but when you do a panorama, it stacks up really quickly. And when one gets used to a higher resolution, it very hard to work with a smaller one.

This is a two shot panorama, each shot blended from three exposures. This is the view of the Bratislva city center you would get, if you ever are in the Aupark tower. This photo was taken right as the blue hour ended and the night started.

And since this is another big panorama, here are few details from this photo.

Wallpapers

Somehow I managed to catch a cold right nice at the end of the summer. And while my head hurts, I really hate to sit at the pc and do anything. So instead of a new photo, how about some new wallpapers. Cropping those is much faster than editing :)

Don’t forget to check out other available wallpapers:

Dubai 4K wallpapers

From the page stats, it looks like the most popular wallpapers are from Dubai, so how about even more of those.




Lights under the Eiffel Tower

While the occasion why the Eiffel Tower was lit up in these colors was a sad one (this photo is from 2016, right after the bomb explosions in Belgium), the way the lit it up was interesting. I always thought, they just use the lights that are already built into the tower and just change the color. But on this occasion, I saw it working differently. Instead, they had a setup of lights right in front of the tower. They used them to give the top of the tower the red color. If you look closely into this photo, you can see the red lights shining from the bottom, right under the tower.

This is a two shot panorama, each shot from a single exposure. Combined and edited in Photoshop. I had a lot of lens flares here, as there were a lot of street lamps closeby and it’s really hard to shade the 17mm TSE lens. I also had quite the problems with color banding here and while I managed to remove a lot of it, maybe there wills till be some in the sky. It just did not want to go away, and I did not want to replace the whole sky just because of it.
