Prague by Kvikken Prague by Kvikken
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.

I was a bit annoyed at first when I got water on my lens glass, but then I just had to try out how they would look like with shallow dof.
It turned out really great actually :lol:

*sigh* ah, Prague...I SHALL go there some day...For now, I shall simply enjoy your excellently lit, brilliantly composed, gorgeous, serene, architecturally intriguing, and mind drawing images...So tingling to the senses! Especially the bubbly raindrop feel against a darker/lighter background...very contrasty... I like! :)

You should go there, it is beautiful, but definately packed with tourists, and we were even out of the "worst" (when it's most tourists there) touristseason :lol:

And thank you :aww:

Praha er en fin fin by, har forresten også vært på det slottet, men det var før foto traff mitt håndtverk desverre.
