This is one lovely church in Vienna, it just looks so much nicer from outside. It is a little boring from the inside. A little to clean for my taste. But still it was nice that when I asked if I can take photos, nobody minded. Maybe because it was still a little bit under reconstruction.
Blue hour in Vienna
This was taken during summer last year. It was a strange day to take photos in Vienna, as there was a football match between Austria and Germany (if I remember correctly) that day, and the city was full of people watching it on screens everywhere :)
After most of my recent photos were blended images, this is again a HDR. I’m continuing my experiments with blending, but as the results are not really share-worthy right now, I’m sharing normal HDR photos instead :)
The 2012 Photoblog Award
I can’t believe my blog was selected as one of the 20 best photoblogs of 2012 by Photoblog Awards. It came as a really big surprise for me. It’s a great end to the last year and great start to a new one. The compelte list can be found on the Photoblog Awards page.
Small nativity scene
I visited Vienna for few hours yesterday, and of course I also took few photos :) This is a small nativity scene in the St. Stephens Cathedral in Vienna. There were two of these, one of each side of the cathedral. This HDR is only from a single RAW file, as no tripods allowed and for this I held the camera down on a railing. Looks quite good for a 2s exposure :)
Building with all the lights
I took this photo in Vienna. I have seen this building so many times before, but never at night, and it was such a big surprise to see, that the lights are animated. I mean, they are all used as pixels and the look and color of the whole building changes. Really a nice idea how to make a building more interesting :)
Arriving in Vienna
I just returned today from a week long trip on board the Amadolce river ship. So today only a quick post with a new photo and I will mention more over the next days (together with more new photos :)) So this one is taken from the lounge of the Amadolce, as it was arriving in Vienna, very early in the morning.
This is quite a random photo I took while playing with the Canon 70-200 F2.8 IS II lens. Actually the name Apple lens came from a comment I received on this photo, when I posted it on my Facebook page :)
