St. Vitus Cathedral – Prague

A cold, hazy winter morning.

We had been given a whirlwind tour of Prague on a tour bus. We arrived at the cathedral/castle complex and there was still frost in the shadows. Peeking over some buildings before us rose the back lit spires of St. Vitus Cathedral. All in all, it was a spectacular sight- one that I would love to have another shot at.

There is lots of Topaz Detail and Topaz Adjust 5 in this- not to mention some hard light blending and texturizing.

Pardon me if you've seen this. I accidentally made the original post limited when it was posted for #SacredSunday and #TextureBlendPhotography a couple of weeks ago. I updated the original post to include +PaintIt Saturday, but the post remained limited. D'Oh! In any case, this is a new post for Public Consumption.

What To Do With Out of Focus Photos?

I see what can come of them regardless. It’s educational, don’t you know!

There was this switch on my crummy little camera that I had, for setting the focal length to either close up or infinity which, in the process of putting the camera into its case or removing it, could snag and switch settings. It was on close up all day, and the LCD on the camera was so small, I didn’t see that my shots were out of focus. It wasn’t until seeing the photos on my laptop in the evening that I discovered what was wrong. It happened again later in the week. D’Oh

Well, you get what you get— but what you do with what you get? You may not always end up with something you’re willing to show publicly, but you may still learn some things along the way that will increase your frequency of success.
