A windmill sunset

I did very few sunset shots this year. As I spend most of the year on a ship, which mostly moves to another port in the evening, the condition to take sunset shots were just not there. But I wanted to share one with you, so this one is from my last years visit to Netherlands :)

This is a single exposure, taken in Zansee Schans, edited in Lightroom and Photoshop.

Stacked rocks at the 5 fingers

I don’t really believe I would have the patience to stack rocks. And I think my hands shake to much anyway (thats why I prefer to use a tripod all the time :))

This was one of the rock stacks I seen at the 5 fingers. 5 fingers is a lookout place high above Hallstatt in Austria. You can see part of the beautiful view in the background, and I will share sometime more photos from here.

This is a blend of two images, done in Photoshop.

The stunning ceiling

If you ever wonder why I like vertormas so much, this is it. You just can’t get a view like this without using multiple photos. The ceiling here, in the Palace of Parliament in Bucharest is just stunning (as are in many more rooms in that building), and even while standing there, it’s hard to take it all in at once. But with a wide enough lens, and a bit of editing, it is possible :)

I took more vertoramas here, so I will share them with you in some later blog posts :)

This is a two shot vertorma, with a third photo used to remove few people from the shot. Combined in Lightroom, finished in Photoshop.

Sponsored posts

I keep getting requests from companies, that would like to do a post on this blog. I mean, that they already have an article, and they would pay me for just posting it. Of course the reason for this is the inclusion of links in that article, what would help the ranking of their sites in search engines.

I so wish they would stop bothering me with that. I don’t want to do that, and I’m not going to do that. It cheapens the content of the blog as it is (and the included links can sometime hurt my site instead). I don’t mind doing reviews for photo stuff, or sponsored contest, but thats about it.

A cool place for a game of pool

When you visit a palace, you don’t expect a pool table, a cinema, card table and similar. But if you visit the Royal palace in Belgrade, that’s what you will see.

Still, it’s a great looking place :)

This is a two shot vertorama, each shot from two exposure, combined in PTgui, finished in Photoshop.


When I listened to the guide while visiting the Palace of Parliament in Bucharest, she explained that its the second largest building in the world, after the Pentagon in the USA. But when I tried to search for that, it shows a bit more of a correction. It is the second largest, administrative building. Still, it’s a huge building, quite a stunning place to visit :)

The second largest building

So of course this photo is of the Palace of Parliament in Bucharest. This is the view from the big parking area right in front of the palace. I really liked how the big street lamps framed the view, so I found the exact center opposing the parliament, and got this.

This is a blend of 4 exposure, done in Photoshop.
