Japanese Garden in Wrocław

Japanese Garden in WroclawThat little idyll you find in Wrocław close to the Centennial Hall. The Japanese Garden is one of the places you should definately visit when you’re around the Centennial Hall anyways. The first Japanese Garden on that grounds opened in 1913 for the World Expo. During the communist regime nobody took care about it anymore, but in 1996 it was restored and it is very beautiful today.

Fireworks over the Rudolfinum in Prague

It was quite a bit of luck involved to get this picture of the fireworks over the Rudolfinum in Prague (Praha). We just went down to the bank of Vltava to take a picture of the Charles Bridge. Once I was done with that, my girlfriend thought that it would also be a nice position to capture the Rudolfinum. So she used my camera, brought it in the right position and started taking the usual three photos for the HDR. The camera managed to take two of the pictures and then the fireworks started and we’ve had the camera in the perfect position.
To process the picture I took two shots without fireworks and one with the fireworks in it and put them together in Photoshop.

Sunset in the Old Town of Gdansk

When I was in Gdansk (Gdańsk), Poland, for a language and culture course, our schedule was so packed that we barely had any free time. You have to know that this area is known as Tricity (Trójmiasto) consisting of the cities Gdansk, Gdynia and Sopot. We were accommodated somewhere between Gdansk and Sopot, so every time I wanted to take some pictures I first had to catch a train. So in the end I only managed to see se old town of Gdansk twice, but at least I could capture a nice sunset. The picture was taken on the bridge in front of the green gate (zielona brama).

My first night shot of Prague Castle

Prague Castle (Pražský hrad) and Charles Bridge (Karlův most).

It’s been something like 3 weeks now, since I bought my first tripod, the Manfrotto 190CXPRO4. The date of purchase wasn’t a coincidence, as I knew that one weekend later we’ll go to Prague (Praha).

Prague is very special for me as I went on Erasmus studies to Charles University for one semester. It’s been an awesome time and me and my girlfriend (we’ve met there), couldn’t wait to come back to this place.

Apart from meeting with old friends there was something else I wanted to do. To take exactly this shot from Prague Castle. I know it’s the standard shot of Prague, but I desperately wanted to take it. So here we are, I like it. How about you?
