Summer panorama of Zadar

I don’t really have many photos from Zadar. Zadar is a city in Croatia, which I visited with my friends last year, but as it was still in the summer, it was not really great for photos. It was great to go into the sea and relax, but not for photos. When it’s crazy hot, I’m not really in the mood to walk around with a camera bag. And the huge amount of tourists around is also not helping. But even so, I took a few photos, either early in the morning or views where you can’t really see all the people. And this one is from the second category.

This photo is the view from the Bell tower in the middle of the old town. You can walk up if you pay an entrance fee. There is not that much space and it’s usually full, but if your tripod is high enough, you can prop it against the side walls. This photo is a 3 shot panorama, each shot from 5 exposures. I did not really need all of them for most of the photo, just right in the middle, there are very bright shop lights. And getting rid of those required so many exposures.

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

A very busy fireworks photo

I don’t really like when a photo is soo busy. There is just too much going on and you don’t know what to focus your eyes on. But since I chochen the spot to take the shot from over the city, of course that’s how it turned out.

This is another shot from the St. Stephens day fireworks last week. This one is a single exposure, split into two and then blended back together in Photoshop.

And here are a few details. You can clearly see all the people lining the streets around the Danube river here.

Wallpapers

wallpapers desktopI mentioned before, that though I share super ultra-wide wallpapers with you, I never have seen how they look like on a screen. Since I don’t have a wide enough monitor myself, I can’t try them out. But yesterday, I stumbled upon this photo on Reddit and of course, I immediately recognized one of my photos. And I’m sharing that photo here today with you, with the permission of the Reddit user phauk, whose computer setup this it. It does look great, doesn’t it?

If you use one of my wallpapers, not only the super ultra-wide ones, and have taken a photo of your setup, feel free to send it to me. The next time I do a wallpaper update post, I will include it.

And for today, how about even more super ultra-wide wallpapers for download. As always, these are all free for personal use and you can share them further, just link back to this blog. No commercial use without my permission.

Don’t forget to check out other available wallpapers:

Bright spot in the Business Bay

Back to Dubai with today’s photo. Most of my photos from Dubai are of the skyscrapers, but this one has a bit less of those. You can only see them a bit in the background. I found this spot in the middle of the Business Bay, and I think it was something like an exercise area. I think I remember seeing a poster for that nearby. Not completely sure anymore.

I really like how it stood out compared to the rest of the area, and how the middle was much brighter than the rest. So I also enhanced it in my editing, keeping the borders quite dark. This is also a shot done with the 12mm Laowa lens, so while I was standing really close to the palms, I still got a big part of them in the shot.

This is a blend of three exposures, done in Photoshop. I probably used the Night Light filter from NISI with this photos, but can’t really tell.

Vineyards in Austria

Let’s do a more sunny photo today. I took this one already few years ago, but since I never edited or posted it, I’m doing so today. There are still thousands of photos I taken over the years I never posted. My photo library is really quite big.

This photo was taken from the top of the Durnstein castle in Austria. I used the 200mm lens to zoom in on the area on the other side of the Danube river, with all the vineyards around. The result made for a really hazy photo, as the day was very hot and sunny. I’m including a comparison to the original image, just so you can see the difference here.

This is a single exposure, edited in Photoshop.

And here is also a comparison to the original RAW file.
