Frederiksberg Have

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.

Sutter

In Frederiksberg garden – Denmark, there is this tree that parents and their children use to “sacrifice” their pacifier, when the kids are too old to use it.

“Sutter” is the Danish word for pacifiers.

This photo is “straight out of the box” meaning that I didn’t do anything except of adding contrast and a bit of color in the post process.
