More Surface Pro wallpapers

I did not know that the new Surface Pro 6 has the same resolution as the Surface Pro 4. But now I know. So all the wallpapers I shares for the Surface Pro 4 work great with the Pro 5 and now also the Pro 6. And of course with any other 3:2 screens, there are just fitter exactly for the Pro series. As always, you can download all from the wallpapers page here.

Autumn in the city

Let’s bring a bit of Autumn colors to the blog with today’s photo. I took this one about a week ago, while doing some sunset panoramas down by the Danube. The light created these huge lens flares, but in the end I decided to keep them in the photo. They create an interesting framing around the lamp.

This is a blend of two exposure, created in Photoshop.

Searching for ones own photos

Sometime I do a revers search on some of my photos. I try not to do it, as it’s really depressing. So many people used them on their websites, and almost no one ever gives me credit as the author of the photo.

Here and there I get contacted by companies that represent photographers in legal actions against sites like these, and while I prefer not to do so, one day it may be too much to ignore. Funny how easy is to include a line of text with my name and link back to the site. Still seems to much to ask for from some :/

Sphere building in blue

I shared with you already few images of the Expos 2017 sphere building in Astana, and this is another one. I tried to have them in different colors, so here is one in blue.

This is a blend of two exposures, where the second one was used only to remove a flare from the photo.

Social networks

Recently I have been most active on Twitter and Instagram. I don’t even have Facebook installed on my phone anymore. But I noticed one thing. On Twitter, when someone follows me, they do so because they want to see what I share. On Instagram, it looks like most people that follow me just do so hoping that I follow them back, and just don’t care what I share. I can see huge fluctuation of followers numbers there, while on Twitter they are quite stable.

Interesting to see how people behave differently on different sites. Have you seen something similar?

Stunning fireworks over Budapest

Fireworks make for such stunning and colorful photos. I always try to take more photos of them when I can. But you may have noticed, I always include a lot from the scenery. I don’t like fireworks photos with just the fireworks. That makes the shot very generic for me, if there is nothing to identify the location.

This shot, as many other of my fireworks photos, was taken during the St. Stephen’s day celebrations in Budapest, Hungary. These are every year on the 20th of August there. This is a single exposure, edited in Photoshp.

Sunset at the Bratislava Castle

I do like colorful photos. And sunset can give you so much color. And autumn and early winter sunsets can be so beautiful. Like this one. This is a bit different view of Bratislava castle, as this photo is taken from the Michael’s Gate tower. The balcony there is easily accessible if you visit the medieval weapons museum that is in the tower. Just having a sunset during you visit is only possible in Winter as they close quite early.

This is a blend of three exposures, done in Photoshop.
