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.

Sunset colors over Prague

A bit more colorful photo today, or better said one with a lot of shades of orange. This was taken sometime back during a very nice sunset over the city. There were no real clouds, but it was overcast and the whole sky became this nice orange. And that changed the color of the whole city with it.

This is a blend from 5 exposures, done in Photoshop.

Now and then

My editing style changed a lot over the years. Mostly I tried to move more towards more realistic and softer edits. Away from the typical grungy style that is associated with HDR photos. I don’t re-edit photos once I finish them, but for today I thought, I try to edit a similar photo to one I did years ago. So I went back and chosen a photo from 2012, where I posted a very similar one. I edited it, and here you can see the result. These two photos were taken minutes from each other, but with 7 years between the edits.

This is a blned of 4 exposures done in Photoshop.

I’m no longer 100% sure how the old one was edited, but I presume it was a HDR from 7 exposures done in Photomatix Pro, that I then finished in Photoshp. You can see the biggest difference on the bridge. I used to pull out a lot of detail in my photos, where now I leave some shadow still there.
