Budapest (Hungary). This is the first time I write a blog post to test something, but I just installed the new Adobe Lightroom 6 and I tried what is probably the most interesting feature: the photo merge to create stunning panoramic photos. Some years ago I was in Budapest, and I took several (eight!) photos of the Parliament, from left to right. Today, with Lightroom 6, I used this sequence to test the photo-merge function. The process is very fast (at least on my MacBook Pro 2014) and precise. The final result is a DNG file, which gives the possibility of applying non-destructive corrections. Honestly, I’m really amazed by this feature! If you want to see the same photo at high definition, you can find it here.
Budapest (Hungary). Thanks to its architecture, to its position on a bank of the Danube river, and to the color of the facade given by the light at sunset, the Hungary Parliament in Budapest is probably one of the most beautiful Parliament buildings in the world. For sure, a building I photographed with great passion and enthusiasm.
For this reason, even if I took this photo long time ago, still it is one of my favorite shots; not only for the sense of calm and tranquility that it gives to me every time I watch it, but also because I think it makes stand out the beauty of the Parliament’s architecture. In few words, this image is something I could see on my wall for long time without getting bored…
To those that are traveling to Budapest – even for a short stay as a weekend – I recommend to sit in front of the Parliament Building on the other side of the Danube river, and contemplate the facade waiting for the sunset. Architecture lovers will find in this landscape a sort of “mystical experience” and will “get drunk” with all those details, decorations and statues; not to mention the perfect coexistence of the general Gothic design with the central dome in perfect XIX Century Renaissance Revival style.
Budapest (Hungary). Fisherman’s Bastion is a fantastic viewpoint over Budapest. At sunset, the parliament tones become warm exalting the beauty of its architectures.
