Flashback - trip to Prague in 2010

August 15, 2013  •  Leave a Comment

We hopped over to Prague for a few days, in 2010. We were unbelievably lucky to
have amazing weather at the back end of October. Prague was just like a picture postcard,
and I put the camera to good use.

Two photos stood out. The first was, well, just like a postcard! As we walked across one of
the major bridges, the evening light was just PERFECT. Nothing special about the subject
matter, this shot must have been taken by countless photographers over the years, but even
so it's a great memory of what makes Prague so beautiful.

I had to play with this shot quite a bit on the computer, as "out of the camera" the colouring
was all wrong. A few tweaks though and the true colours shone through. I did cheat and
clone out various bits of litter, etc from the water. Nothing wrong with that...

The second photo is very different. Walking through the old Jewish quarter, the prettiness of the tourist area was replaced by a shabbier side of the city, though still full of interest. This wall seemed to sum it up. Here I had to find the right composition, to get the various points of interest, and I had to work on the contrast and colour balance back home as well, until I was happy with it. I wonder what was behind that barred window? And does the light work any more?
