  • Tunnel to the future with many exits

    Tunnel to the future with many exits

    The tunnel is an old symbol for a passage. On photographs they also make good models: Symmetry, interesting shape, often intriguing details. I love this one in particular. It always reminds me of the fact that even if you do not see the exit and it looks like a dead end, there are plenty of […]

  • A quick view from the balcony into the sunset

    A quick view from the balcony into the sunset

    I took my 19mm Sigma for a ride and created the HDR. I especially enjoyed the orange and turquoise hues in the reflections.

  • Quick review of the Sigma 30mm 1:2.8 EX DN for Sony Nex E-Mount

    Quick review of the Sigma 30mm 1:2.8 EX DN for Sony Nex E-Mount

    When I first took it out of the packaging I thought it was broken. But the lens element is not fixed if the lens is not “on”, aperture is closed. Size is smaller than the 18-55 kit lens, I would say it is as if someone cut the kit lens between zoom and focus ring. […]

  • The colors of spring are in the air

    The colors of spring are in the air

    One can already feel the spring coming nearer – it is getting warmer. But you can also see it. The colors of spring are nearly back. You can have a glance at them… I took the pictures at the usual location…

  • HDR and back light – wallpaper “Gloriette”

    HDR and back light – wallpaper “Gloriette”

    One great situation to use the HDR technique is when having backlight. In this picture here I used 5 brackets +/- 1EV. I could have used seven or nine brackets, but then the effect would have been gone. I threw in a polarizing filter and my trusted Sigma 10-20mm to catch the magic beauty. I […]

  • Wallpaper: “Sunset on Vienna”

    Wallpaper: “Sunset on Vienna”

    Facebook is a bitch. I am one of those people who randomly post their pictures on facebook. And I am one of these people who want their pictures to be seen – I consider them art and not instances of reality. So if somebody asks for a wallpaper I cannot say no. This might explain […]

  • Small break in the blue hour

    I took my panosaurus 2.0 for a first ride after the initial setup and tests. I took the opportunity and decided to shoot a small panorama in the blue hour.

  • Panoramic HDR Experiment

    Why do they allow an ugly tent there?, a photo by stst31415 on Flickr. I went out with my tripod to shoot a structured panorama in at least 3 by 2. I made it 4 by 2 but it was not convincing. Because I also experimented… Another thing I wanted to try was a panorama […]

  • View while pedalo dinner

    View while pedalo dinner, a photo by stst31415 on Flickr. I have been to a dinner with a pedalo and before we left (because the mosquitos also wanted to dine) I took this shot. A hot day’s end…
