2013 New Year’s View from Starý most (Old bridge) in Bratislava

Happy New Year everyone!  The following pictures, except for the one noted, were shot with my wife’s (wink) new Olympus PEN EPL-5.  The Slovaks know how to put on a great show.  Very festive night in Bratislava with plenty of pyrotechnics and good cheer!  Na zdravie!

Here are some other pictures to enjoy!






The following picture was shot with my old reliable Canon 40D


Black and white night shot of Bratislava Castle

During my walk last night through Old Town Bratislava, the sky showed some interesting patterns.  My camera had a  prime 50mm f1.8 lens on it.   I placed it on a rail of a bridge that faced the Bratislava Castle.  The exposure was 4 seconds long with an ISO of 100 and the aperture set at f8.  When just walking around town, I will frequently put on my canon 50mm f1.8 lens.  It is very light and captures excellent pictures.  Last night Bratislava was hopping with several musicians performing throughout Old Town.  There is a music festival (one of many throughout the year) going on until Sunday night.

Color Pop!

Below is a shot of a tram in Budapest, Hungary.  This technique is called  color pop or selective color process.  First, in Photoshop, convert the file to black and white.  Next, using layers, bring out the original color in a select area.   I’ll post more color pops in the future.  Until then, enjoy this yellowish orange tram picture taken in Budapest, Hungary.
