The Wenceslas Square (Václavské náměstí) which climbs up from the crossroad Můstek to the monumental building of the national museum is the most living boulevard of Prague. His total length amounts to 682 metres. The Wenceslas Square is the centre of Prague with the highest concentration of shops, hotels, offices in companies, exchange offices, souvenir stores and fast-food states. The life on from the Pragern "Václavák" called place also does not settle down at night, nevertheless, he offers numerous bars and clubs - under it, unfortunately, also such of rather dubious call.
The place which was used originally as a marketplace originated after 1348 when of emperor Karl IV Prague Neustadt founded. Till 1848 he was called horse market. His today's name reminds in the Czech land cartridges, the holy Wenzel whose statue rises at the upper end of the place.
The place Wenzels was a witness of many historical events. After the occupation of Czechoslovakia by Soviet tanks in August, 1968 mass demonstrations took place here. In protest against the occupying burnt itself at this point in January, 1969 of the student Jan Palach. Also the biggest demonstrations in November, 1989 which led to the case of the communist regime took place on this place.

Excuse for my bad English!

Der Wenzelsplatz (Václavské náměstí), der von der Kreuzung Můstek zum monumentalen Gebäude des Nationalmuseums aufsteigt, ist der lebendigste Boulevard Prags. Seine Gesamtlänge beträgt 682 Meter. Der Wenzelsplatz ist das Zentrum Prags mit der höchsten Konzentration von Geschäften, Hotels, Büros in- und ausländischer Firmen, Wechselstuben, Souvenirläden und Fast-Food-Ständen. Das Leben auf dem von den Pragern "Václavák" genannten Platz kommt auch in der Nacht nicht zur Ruhe, bietet er doch zahlreiche Bars und Clubs - darunter leider auch solche von eher zweifelhaftem Ruf.
Der Platz, der ursprünglich als Marktplatz genutzt wurde, entstand nach 1348, als Kaiser Karl IV. die Prager Neustadt gründete. Bis 1848 hieß er Pferdemarkt. Sein heutiger Name erinnert an den tschechischen Landespatronen, den hl. Wenzel, dessen Statue sich am oberen Ende des Platzes erhebt.
Der Wenzelsplatz war Zeuge vieler historischer Ereignisse. Nach der Besetzung der Tschechoslowakei durch sowjetische Panzer im August 1968 fanden hier Massendemonstrationen statt. Aus Protest gegen die Besatzung verbrannte sich an dieser Stelle im Januar 1969 der Student Jan Palach. Auch die größten Demonstrationen im November 1989, die zum Fall des kommunistischen Regimes führten, fanden auf diesem Platz statt.

Going through my pictures from Prague again :aww:

Taken from the Karlův most (Charles bridge) toward the castle. Sometimes, getting raindrops on the lens glass is a good thing :D

Post-processing
Adjusted the contrast with curves, one curves layer for the whole picture, one only for the sky and one only for the foreground. Added a black and white layer set to overlay (100%) and one set to normal (55%). Cropped to square.

Nationaltheateret train station in Oslo, Norway.
I'm not sure if I can say that I love my wide angle enough times :lol:

All of my metro/underground pictures can be found here

Post-processing
Turned up the exposure a bit in camera raw. Adjusted the contrast with two curves layer. One where I generally turned the contrast up a lot, and made the darker areas darker, and one where I just lightened the higlights some more.

Added a black and white layer set to overlay (100%) and converted the picture to black and white.
Removed some noise.

At the aquarium "Atlanterhavsparken" in Ålesund on the west coast of Norway.
I tried out long exposure mostly for fun and for annoyance that it was too dark to take pictures of the fishes at a decent shutter speed (without too hight iso, I'm not fond of high isos...!), I had no idea that it would turn out so good :D

Postprocessing:
Recovered the extremely overexposed (how I love RAW-pictures...!) picture by turning down the exposure a bit and recovery up a lot in Adobe Raw, also turned up the contrast.
Added some curves layers for different part of the picture to turn up the contrast some more, added a black and white layer set to overlay (100%) and one curve layer where I adjusted the green channel. Removed noise with noise ninja. Cropped.
