One more with the fireworks

OK, this is the last one from the New Years fireworks, and I will not be posting any fireworks photo for a while again. But I had this one already done, and just had to post it :)

This is again a single RAW, split into two exposures and then blended back together in Photoshop.

One more with the fireworks

More fireworks over Bratislava

Of course, I took more than one photo during the New Year fireworks yesterday. Strangely it feels already like distant pats. Really strange. I remember every year I took photos of the New Year fireworks, and it slowly changes into a blur of memories far away. Funny how the mind works. Still, I do hope all of you had a great start in the new year, and that this one goes by a bit slower :)

This photo again, I did a single RAW, which I copied and then edited twice. One for highlights one for shadows. Then I opened them in Photoshop and blended them together. Also, this was not a vertical shot. I did all the photos horizontally, as I was standing bit more to the side and hoped the fireworks explosion would spread out more over the sky. They did not. But a great thing about having a high-resolution camera is, that you can crop quite a lot, without really affecting the quality that much. So that’s what I did here.

Happy New Year

Happy New Year everyone. I start every year with a fireworks photo, and this year will not be any different. I went to the Old bridge again this year, but this time I went a bit more to the side. Like this I could also include all the people next to the Danube river in the foreground. Just to have the photos a bit different this year. It was very windy, but luckily it got better right as the fireworks started, so managed to get a sharp photo in the end.

This is a single exposure, split into two and blended back together in Photoshop.

My favorites

Only a few more months and it will be 10 years since I started this blog. Exactly it was the 4th of March 2010 when I posted the first photo here. Crazy how quickly the time passed by. And with that, this is also the 10th My favorites post here. I traveled less this year, so the photos are a bit less varied than from the last years. Still, there were some photos I really like, and those I will share with you today. Let’s see what 2020 brings, let’s hope it’s just better and there are even more photos to share :)

Also here you can see my favorites from past years: 2018,2017,2016,2015, 2014, 2013, 20122011 and 2010 :)

Updates

There has been quite a lack of updates on the blog recently. And for a while, it will be that way. There are multiple reasons, but mostly, I did not have that many opportunities to take new photos recently, so not much new stuff to edit. Also, I returned to a daytime non-photography job now, and that had a big impact on my available time. But I do hope this all stabilizes quickly, and I get back to regular posting.

National Bank as a lighthouse

But today, let’s have a new photo. This is a vertorama of the National Bank of Slovakia building in Bratislava. During the White day earlier this year, that had this light installation on top, which made it look just like a huge lighthouse. So it was a perfect time to get a photo of it.

This shot is a combination of two photos for the vertorama, each one from two exposures. I did more than the two, but with the blur of the bus and the movement in the lights on top of the building, I ended up using only a few. All manually blended in Photoshop.
