Copenhagen Opera House in front of Amalienborg castle – Denmark.

Copenhagen Opera House | Copenhagen, Denmark

Located just opposite the home of the Royal Danish family – Amalienborg Castle Copenhagen Opera House stands on the shore of the harbour. The building though during the night is looking like located on the island. The lights softly reflecting on the water are giving it an additional charm.

Peniscola with the Castle, during summer holidays in Spain.

Peniscola Castle | Peniscola, Spain

Peniscola is the kind of town that is our favourite to visit. Beautiful with a rich history, but still not so much discovered by travellers and photographers. The Castle was built in the 13th century by Knights Templar. At some point, this Castle also became a house to Pope Benedict III.

InterContinental Hotel in Palácio das Cardosas in Porto; Portugal

Palácio das Cardosas | Porto, Portugal

The centre of Porto is a fabulous place for a photographer to be. In comparison with other cities in Portugal, whereby architecture is marked by baroque, the architecture of Porto is rather monumental and dominated by granite constructions.

Sofia sunset behind the Mountain Panorama, Bulgaria.

Mountain Panorama | Sofia, Bulgaria

There is only one thing better than capturing a panoramic photo of a capital with mountains in the background. What would you say it is? It’s having a restaurant on top of that building, enjoying some wine and seeing the sky light up. Sofia – Bulgaria’s capital appears to be in the perfect place for such evenings.

El Pilar Basilica during sunset on one of summer evenings while I was traveling to Spain.

The El Pilar Basilica | Zaragoza, Spain

There are so many open spaces and big squares in Zaragoza. Moreover, it’s not overcrowded, and you can find really nice angles and perspective for photographing panoramic views. The architecture of El Pilar Basilica in Zaragoza, as well as the oriental style of the city, makes you feel like in a 1001-night story but in Spain.

TV Tower In Berlin and the center captured from Storkower Straße. Tilt-Shift photography applied on the image.

TV Tower seen from Storkower Straße: Tilt-Shift Photography | Berlin, Germany

I find tilt-shift photography especially efficient on photo images as this one because it lets your eyes lay on the background, recognizing the City Hall, the Cathedral, the TV Tower in Berlin and also the Park Inn by Radisson Hotel on the right. In other words, it gives you the essence of the city, captured in one picture.

Autumn photo from Berlin of Storkower Straße, captured at the end of September.

Autumn photo of Berlin and the Time Blend Effect | Germany

First, I photographed the background – I captured the sun just before it went down and at the same time when the clouds were amazingly illuminated from the below. Then, half an hour later, I photographed the foreground, by shooting 7 – 8 images. At the end I used the Time Blend effect to combine images of the Storkower Straße in Berlin, taken at a different time, into a single picture.

Panorama of Vilnius, Lithuania, with a focus on the Gedimias’ Tower.

Vilnius Castle | Vilnius, Lithuania

Being a symbol not only of the city but also of the state, Gediminas’ Tower is mentioned in traditional Lithuanian poems and songs. It all started with the Grand Duke of Lithuania – Gediminas, who had a dream, hinting that he should start building a city in this place. First, he erected wooden fortifications, which later were turned into construction, made of bricks.

Night photo of Thessaloniki White Tower and the light trails along Leof. Nikis Street.

White Tower light trails | Thessaloniki, Greece

In ancient times on the place of the White Tower there has been a Byzantine fortification. In the 15th century, when the city fell under Ottoman Rule, the construction has been used as a prison and also as a place for mass executions, which explains why its name was ‘The Red Tower’ then. As soon as the Greeks were free from the Ottoman Rule in the beginning of the 20th century, they whitened the construction and gave it the name “The White Tower”, as a symbolic purification from the burden of the past.

An evening photo of Thessaloniki White Tower and the National Theater of Northern Greece.

White Tower and the National Theater Of Northern Greece | Thessaloniki, Greece

Some images are captured like magic – quickly and without hesitation. However, that was not the case with my photo shooting of the White Tower and the National Theater in Thessaloniki. So, I was walking up and down, trying to capture the perfect composition at the best light, which may have looked funny for an outside eye. Finally, during the blue hour, I took a photo that satisfied me – with the city lights giving this violet shade around Thessaloniki White Tower.
