Mobile Wallpapers

For a longer time I wanted to add a new category to the wallpapers section, that being mobile wallpapers. But here the choice for resolution is a bit harder, as not every phone has the same resolution or even the same aspect ration. And to avoid having every photo in many resolutions, I decided to go with the most average one. So for now, all wallpapers here are 2:1 aspect ration with a resolution of 1080×2160. This will fit most screens quite well, even if on some a bit from the edges gets cut off.

As always you are welcome to share these further, just please mention me as the author and link back here. Thank you.

New wallpapers

And here are all the ones I added today :) All can be downloaded from the Mobile wallpapers page here.

Sunny and stormy

I wanted a completely different photo here. What I wanted is to catch the sun right on top of the Bayterek tower, as it looks like a torch anyway. But as I was waling around, trying to find a good spot to take the photo from, the clouds came, and made it a bit impossible. The weather was at the same time really sunny, and a bit stormy :)

Still, I took many photo, including this one from by the nearby fountains. This is a two shot blend, created in Photoshop.

Moments before sunset

I really like to include the sun in my photos. It makes for a bit harder editing, but that a price I’m willing to pay for a nice photo. It is a bit easier when it’s already close to the sunset, as the light from the sun is no longer so bright (mostly). This photo was taken two weeks ago at the Lighthouse at Neusidelrsee in Austria.

This is a single long exposure, edited in Lightroom and Photoshop. I used a 10stop VFfoto filter here.

Entering Bratislava

I have not added a plotagraph in a while. And this is one I already shared on my Instagram quite a while ago, but never posted it here. So here it is :) So this the beautiful river cruise ship AmaViola as it enters Bratislava. And I can say that, I spend many days on this ship, so I know how great it is. I took this photo from the Old bridge, as the ship was entering Bratislava and getting ready to dock.

Then I went into Plotagraph Pro and animated the water, to make it look like it’s permanently moving.

You can check out my Plotagraph Pro review here, and a guide how to create them here.

(if you use an older web browser, you may only see a static image, if you are on a mobile, please hit the play button to see the Plotagraph in motion)

Back alley view

You know that I really like these huge lanscapes and panorama that capture as much as possible. But here and there is nice to focus on something else, a small area, to do a different kind of photo. And today is one of those :)

I took this photo sometime back while visiting the town of Melk in Austria. This was actually the view of the hotel room we were stain in in that tow. I wanted to stay, as there is a huge monastery there, that just looks great. But you will not find a photo of it on the blog, as it was under reconstruction that year. But now it’s finished and I know next time I’m there I will get some photos :) Melk is also one of the spots I suggest you visit in my Top spot guide for the Wachau Valley.

This is a blend of three exposures, edited in Lightroom and blended in Photoshop. I again used Raya Pro here, as I’m trying to get more familiar with it.
