A Stream Filled with Wadding

A Stream Filled with WaddingBuy Print

I can’t remember why – perhaps just for the fun of it – but I was walking around Frederiksberg Garden, with My camera and a Sigma 20mm 1.8 lens. The garden has all these small streams running through, I decided to walk up to one of them to get some shoots. Here I saw this funny thing, it looked like the stream was filled with wadding, it look really cool.
The reason for it was that the stream had been completely frozen during winter, and now the ice was slowly melting leaving a bit of water – 3-5cm – on top of the ice, which made the ice beneath the water look like wadding.

This is a 3 RAW exposure HDR, its handheld – for some reason I didn’t bring My tripod – I used Photomatrix as always for the HDR conversion and Photoshop for cleaning up ghosting on the trees, and for adding color and contrast.

Jump

I been playing around with some of the draw looking filters in Photoshop lately, I’m not sure yet of what I think about them, but I must say that this photo turned out darn good.

I masked back the rider and the bike, into the draw effect layer, to get them looking “normal” again.

India in Tivoli

Just returned from My trip to Sweden, but unfortunately I don’t have time to-day to process one of the shoots from the trip, you have to wait a bit longer for one of those. Instead I give you a photo I made in Tivoli here in Copenhagen last year, hope you Enjoy it.

Spin Baby, Spin

Nice Ferris Wheel-Edit

This is a photo from Nice, France.

I was walking around the city on My last night in town, and came by this small square/park area, where they were putting up this amusement park, there were no customers around, but the ferris wheel was spinning anyway – they were properly testing, to see if it was working – I quickly lined up for a wide angled HDR.
Unfortunately I did have that much time to explore the area, cause My plane was leaving a few hours later.

Well, as mentioned it’s a HDR made from 7 RAW exposures in Photomatrix, and afterwards cleaned up in Photoshop.

Before and after comparison, just before the final clean ups of the photo.

A Grand View

I’m going to Sweden for the weekend with a bunch of people from the photo club, really looking forward to be spending a weekend shoot a lot of nature stuff.

I don’t think there is WiFi at the place we are staying, so I wont be able to post some of the shoots I make up there. But of course I’ll post the good ones – when they are processed and ready – on the site some time in the future.

The photo is a panorama of Grand Canyon – one of the most beautiful places in the world – made from 5 images, stitch together in Hugin, and finished off – added color and contrast – in Photoshop.

Vino Grappa

I was walking around Rovinj – a small town on the Istrian peninsula in Croatia – to find some interesting things to shoot. I came by this little sign on a nice looking street, as I stood there trying out different compositions, this man came out of the establishment – properly a bit drunk and on his way home to the misses – I quickly fired of a few shoots, and ended up with this one.
