Cloudy reflection

To keep some variety in the photo, let’s break away from the city ones for today, and have a bit of nature. Today’s photo is a long exposure shot taken at the Strbske pleso lake in High Tatras in Slovakia. It was a bit windy, which created ripples on the water. So to get a a reflection, I decided to go with a long exposure here.

This is a single exposure edited in Photoshop. I used the VFFOTO 10 stop ND filter here.

Autumn view from the park

Let’s do another Autumn view photo today. I took this one few weeks ago in the Janko Kráľ City Park here in Bratislava. I wanted to frame the castle under the branches of the trees, but I could not find a spot from which I got a nice frame. So instead, I tried it differently. Having the tree in the middle splits the photo into two parts, each one having a bright object in it, and ti creates a nice contrast. Hope you like it too :)

Light projection on the Bratislava castle

So the photos from yesterday did not work out as much as I hoped to. I did not notice how much the flood lights created flares. I only saw them when I brightened the photos. Looks like will have to try the tower again, but will maybe wait for some snow first. But I did get a nice photo so that’s what I’m sharing today.

I wanted this as a panorama with the full fortification visible. But as right around the right bottom corner here is the flood light, that did not worked out that well. So I focused more on the castle, as there was this light projection on it. I had no idea they are doing this, but it was nice change for the photo :)

Blue morning in Rotterdam

Today I tried to decide if I should go out to take photos or not. The clouds showed promise. In the end I decided to go and go up to the Old town hall tower to get some photos of the Christmas markets. And I really had luck with the sunset, as today it was just beautiful. But, I still have to edit the photos, so I show it to you probably tomorrow :)

And until then, here is a photo from the center of Rotterdam in Netherlands. I was on a ship there, that was docked not far away from this spot, so I decided to try some sunrise photos. And this was taken during the morning blue hour. This is a blend of three exposures, done in Photoshop.

Light in the park

The Bayterek monument in Astana, Kazakhstan really shines at night. Does not really make for easy photo blending but looks really nice. Btw. I still don’t know if its Bayterek or Baiterek. Still seen both being used.

This is a blend of 3 exposures, done in Photoshp.
