Busy evening on the Charles Bridge

Continuing with photos from my past travels, here is one taken from the top of one of the Charles bridge towers. If you ever been there, you would know that the walkway on top is quite narrow and you have to take photos through holes in the walls. Not really an easy spot to set up a tripod. And even if you do, each time somebody wants to pass by, you have to move to the side. Looks like the builder’s hundreds years ago did not have photographers in mind at all :)

But it’s a good sunset spot, as the sun sets behind the castle hill most of the year. This is a three shot blend, done in Photoshop.

Evening reflection in Birmingham

Have you watched the Microsoft event today? It was quite interesting. Nice to see where computing is going. I still have the Surface Pro 4 I got when it came out, and I still don’t feel that I need to upgrade it. But maybe one of the new devices next year will be the ones that tempt me to upgrade.

Let’s stay in the UK with another photo, this time one taken at the canals in Birmingham. Most people don’t even know, but there are more canals in Birmingham than in Venice. But the city is also a bit bigger. Still, they make for coll reflection.

This is a three exposure blend, done in Photoshop.

Forth rail bridge

I really like bridges and that why I probably take so many photos with them. This is one of my favorites. The Forth rail bridge near Edinburgh in Scotland just look so massive. In comparison to the other modern bridges, this one is huge.

This is a bit older photo. Ok, maybe not a bit, as it was taken in 2013, when I did a short trip to the UK. I have many photos like that. Ones I took but I did not edit or post, as I did not like the results. Now, when I go back to those photos, I can edit them now, and I get a result I like right away. Not that it works with every photo. Looking at some composition I did and some settings I used, I really wonder what I was thinking at that time. They are just horrible.

This is a three shot blend, done in Photoshop. This is not a panorama, this is a cropped down photo.

Clear water at Lago di Braies

I thought I post a photo I took yesterday of the lights on the top of the NBS building in Bratislava, but I don’t like the edit I did yet. I think I will have to have it standing around for a bit and try to edit it again in a few days. Sometimes when I try to edit the photo right away, I don’t get the result I want. A little distance to the time when it was taken can help.

But to post something in the meantime, here is a shot from Lago di Braies. This one was at the boat dock in the lake, taken a bit to the side. I had to wait a bit to have no one on the dock, and for the boat to stable a bit, as they were moving around. But I liked that I could see that something on the bottom of the lake, as it made for a nice leading line. So I waited.

This is a two shot vertorama, each shot blended from 3 exposures. All put together in Photoshop.

The night sun on the Tower 115

The White night event is again in Bratislva this weekend, and I went a bit to the city yesterday evening. I did not really take many photos, as I do prefer wide landscapes to street photos, but I did take a few. Here is one.

This is one of the light installation, a projection of a very talkative sun on the Tower 115 building, next to the Apollo bridge. I did this photo with the 12mm lens, to get as much of the foreground together with the tower. I quite like these plant holders they have there, even though they are not yet overgrown. The whole area is still quite new, so that will take a while still.

This is a blend of 4 exposures, 3 for the photo and one at higher iso for the sun. Blended in Photoshop.
