Nice pictures, cid! Bring back memories from a bicycle tour from Cologne to Bratislava :) . I like this friendly guy from the sewage system :) . I will visit Bratislava again, it's always worthwhile.

Yes trip to Bratislava is always worthwhile  ;)

I have bought new glass last saturday (24-70 f/2.8 II  ::) ), so now I'm drifting trough the city and testing what we can do, so here is another one

Bratislava streets by &lt;CiD&gt;, on Flickr


This one is far better than any of the others.  I suggest cropping away the bright area above the atch.

Ok guys, let me kindly ask for a (free!) photography lesson ;-)

The two UFO pictures are very nice, but Stig's one excels in water reflection (and light, in general). What's the trick to get that? I'd guess longer exposure, as some lights look brighter in Stig's picture (especially with a charming star of light around some of them) -- yet some shadows in the bridge are visible, which confuses me... Or different lenses? Or maybe it's just a Nikon camera? Lol! :-)

On cid's side, of course, there's the right perspective. So it's a tie, and maybe with your precious advice I'll be the "winner" that learns something new!

Hi and thanks...

Let me start with the easiest, it wasn’t a Nikon camera, it was the great 350D  :)  (and I think the nifty fifty) and yes, I believe the key to that photo was a long exposure (25s) which smoothes out the water which then, I think, helps the reflections as well. As for the stars, I believe you can influence that with the aperture (the smaller the aperture, the bigger the stars, this was f22), or there are special star filters for that (you can even chose different styles of stars, but it wasn’t used here).

That said, should you want to have a go at it yourself, cid’s trick with hiding the building in perspective is great and, should I try to redo this, I would go a bit earlier in the day, so there is a bit more color in the sky (ehm, blue hour ;) )

Thanks so much for sharing! Learning would be much harder without tips like this! Thank you.

I'd definitely like to give a try myself, which implies I need to organize a trip to Bratislava soon!

...and me too I found "warrior of times" breathtaking!

Couldn't resist.  The name makes me think of the movie Eurotrip.

Bratislava, Slovakia

Clearly the real place is a lot more beautiful than the clip.
