Manes Bridge in the Evening

Posted by on Jan 11, 2014 in Canon EOS 60D, Prague, Sunset | 0 comments

Recently I’ve been experimenting with a color grading which is sort of signature style of Jaime Ibarra. I played a bit with it in Photoshop on several images. This is what I came up with.

Happy New Year 2014!

Posted by on Jan 1, 2014 in Canon EOS 60D, Night, Prague, Winter | 0 comments

Another year has gone by and here we are in 2014. I wish all of you only the best and let this year be much better than the previous one.

We have official fireworks here in Prague a day later so families with small children can enjoy it as well (at least I guess this is the reason). The place where they fired the stuff has changed a bit so I decided to try a different location this year. I am glad I did, the view was great. Enjoy!

Rudolfinum in the Evening

Posted by on Dec 23, 2013 in Canon EOS 60D, HDR, Prague, Sunset | 0 comments

Rudolfinum is a music auditorium here in Prague. You can enjoy various classical concerts there and I gladly recommend visiting it. Few weeks ago I was walking past it, the light was nice and I realized I haven’t photographed it for a long time. So here it is:)

Warm Winter

Posted by on Jun 28, 2013 in Africa, Canon EOS 60D, Drakensberg, HDR, Sunset, Travel | 0 comments

It’s been almost a year since I visited South Africa. This picture is from the Drakensberg area which I liked very much. There is something special about the sun in Africa which is hard to describe. If you experience a sunset there, it’s very difficult to find a better one. I was fortunate to experience couple of them last year and I hope I’ll experience some more in the future.

Geotagging the photos

Maybe you noticed there is a small map after almost every photo I post here. When I started taking pictures I sometimes took so many I couldn’t remember where I took them. Some time ago I found a useful little app that helps me with that. It’s called GeotagPhotos and it’s available for iPhone or Android devices. They have a free version and also the paid one. The main advantage of the paid one is the ability to measure your location every minute (2, 5, 10 etc.) without you doing anything. The free version can’t do this and you have to manually press the button to save your position (which is kind of a hassle). I tried the free version first and then I decided to buy it. It’s only $3.99 so it won’t ruin anyone’s budget. To finish the tagging process: after you completed your photo trip you can upload the gpx file to their servers (and download it to your computer later) or you can set it up with your Dropbox and it will appear there. After that I take this file with the coordinates to the Lightroom and I let the program do its magic to tag all my photos with their locations. So if you have a similar problem, go check it out.

The Photo

I waited for more than an hour for the light to get just right. Sometimes it’s all about your patience, to wait just a little longer so the colours get to the point it can’t get any better:). Anyway, this is a small restaurant by the Charles Bridge from where you have a nice view of the river Vltava and the city itself.
