Flowers in Keukenhof

To post something different than a landscape photo again, how about few flowers. I still had some from the Keukenhof park near Amsterdam that I had not posted before, so here they are today.

I do recoment a visit to Keukenhof when you are in Amsterdam, but of course only in the months it’s open. That would be from from the end of March to the end of May. Check out my Top photography spots in Amsterdam for all my recomendations there.

Lit up clouds over Hainburg

Sometimes the clouds can be so low, that they can reflect all the light from the ground. Like that, you get clouds that look much warmer than the rest of the sky. Same in this panorama taken from the hill above Hainburg in Austria. The clouds were so low, that when town lights changed their color completely.

I think I mentioned this before, but this one is one of those, unplaned panoramas. I mean, I took the photos as two separate shots, not for a panorama. But, since they were taken close after each other, with similar settings, I could still fit them together. I find I do this quite often. Sometimes it easier to see something when you calmly think about it while editing, instead of being in a hurry in the field when you are losing the light.

This is a two-shot panorama, each shot blended from three exposures in Photoshop. Combined into panorama also in Photoshop. If you want to know how that is done, check the guide here.

Early morning in Ljubljana

I went a bit back into my photo library today, and edited a photo from 2013. My Lilghtroom catalag actually starts with 2008, as in that year I started to take photos. I don’t think I ever did one before that. Maybe on my photon, but that was like 1Mpix, so not really that great :)

This photo is from one very early morning in Ljubljana in Slovenia. Funny that I remember it like it was yesterday. There is this wooden bridge there, which gives you this view when you stand in the middle. The problem is, it shakes when somebody walks over it. So if you don’t want blurry photos, you have to go there when it’s definitively empty. And early morning is that time.

This is a blend of 4 exposures, done in Photoshop. As this was taken with the 5D mark II, I needed to use more exposures due to the lower dynamic range.

Little chapel next to Lago di Braies

Today’s photo is another, different view from the Lago di Braies in Dolomites, Italy. This time I tried to get the little chapel that was next to it into one shot together with the lake. I really liked how the path curved towards it and that the little fence made a nice border on the left. To get all of that into the photo, I went with a panorama here. I also had to remove a few cars that were next to the chapel. They just really did not fit the mood I wanted for this photo. I thought about taking one photo a bit close to it, but there was some work done there, so decided against it in the end.

This is a two-shot panorama, taken with the help of a tilt-shift lens. Each shot blended from three exposures and combined in Photoshop.
