Someone has done a shoddy job when wrapping the BMW.
So… Seems like I have taken “Picture a Day” challenge very “seriously”.
Well… Next year I will take part in all of them (In my hopes and dreams).
Few days back me and my girlfriend took a walk in Old Castle ruins located near the town where I grew up.
In the ruins we found a very well lit suspension bridge and fortunately I had my camera with a tripod handy (the best gift for christmas this year).
There should be EXIF with the file, but in case you are wondering:
HDR bracket: (-2;2)
Exposure: 2 ; 1/2 / 8
Lens used: Canon EFS 17-85; 1:4-5.6 IS USM (Manual focus, Stabililizer off). Focal lenght: 17mm
Camera Used: My PrEcIoUs Canon EOS 400D with firmware upgrade.
Software used: Adobe Photoshop + NIK filters (Boosted Red layer, removed some noise, merged HDR).
And here is the result:
In case I won’t get here before it’s time: Have a nice New Year’s Eve!
Sooooo… my girlfriend has some kind of fetish I guess.

Yesterday night I tried a thing called “painting with lights”.
Unfortunately I can’t draw 🙁
Long exposure + LED flashlight
Today I took a walk in the city I currently live in. Believe it or not, but these are the only traffic lights used here.
As I haven’t had any quality sleep time lately I nearly fell asleep behind the tripod.
I took 7 different photos and then layered them all together.
Used ND4 and ND8 filters + UV filter
For this photo I took 5 different ones. Unfortunately we don’t have much traffic here, so not many vehicles passed during the time I camped on the spot.
ND8 + UV filter were used.
So today I had a lot of free time (no wonder I have no money or a job).
I spent it in the nature, studying my new camera. Finally I even figured out, how to use custom White Balance. In total I made 41 photos, but after evaluating them the number came down to two.
I gave an Infrared filter as a present for aclickatatime.wordpress.com‘s birthday.
Today I tried it out myself. Here is the result (Quite happy with it actually. Bear in mind that it’s one of the first times that I used IR filter):
Taken with Canon 50mm fix lense.
A HDR I made near “Kiidjärve”. I might have overdone the colours, but still love it.
Taken with Canon 17-85mm lense and UV + CIR-Polarizing filters.
