Capturing the ghosts of the city. Next to the abandonned Continental Hotel, Cluj-Napoca, Romania.

Still continuing the ghosts-chasing “Commuting” series, this one has been taken next to the abandonned Continental Hotel, in Cluj-Napoca, Romania.

After a short shadow lifting in Adobe Lightroom, the rest of the job was mainly done in Adobe Photoshop for assembling some people layers and Nik Collection Silver Efex Pro for the black and white conversion.

Commuting III, Cluj-Napoca, Romania

Another item of the “Commuting” series, where I try to capture the people going to/from work as shadows. It was taken in Cluj-Napoca, Romania, on Piata Unirii, next to the Memorandum Signer’s monument I shot earlier this year.

Unfortunately, it’s vacation period and it’s not that crowded, si I had to stack a few shots in Photoshop in order to make it a bit busier… and avoid having cars on the frame too!

The black and white processing was done in Adobe Lightroom.

On a tight leash. A kid and his grandfather, playing between the water fountains in Cluj-Napoca, Romania.

A grandfather playing with his grandson between the fountains of Piata Unirii in Cluj-Napoca, Romania. Playing, but keeping him on a tight leash!

This photo was first processed in Adobe Lightroom for the basic adjustments (crop, color temperature, lens and perspective correction). Most of the work has been handled in Nik Collection Silver Efex Pro. I really enjoyed using the different structure levels in order to get a fully detailed image. It’s such a powerful tool!

This reflection

This shot has been taken in next to Mihai Viteazu square in Cluj-Napoca, Romania. We’re not having a very nice summer this year: low-ish temperatures and rain showers are quite common. That’s perfect for me as I don’t like the hot weather, and I love to shoot under the rain! People are rushing, trying to protect from the rain in funny ways… Cluj’s streets are sometimes not very straight and offer some puddles for me to use for this kind of photography, where I try to have a nice reflection of a buildings, of the people, etc. Let’s use the city’s perks in a creative way!

For this photo, on the processing part, nothing really fancy: standard Adobe Lightroom workflow, with a bit of dodge and burn on both the buildings: the real one, to make its lines pop, and the one in the reflection, in order to see it more clearly. I can’t say it was really clean water…
