Hope you enjoy them...this is a truely stunning city:

This was a panoramic. The ray of light to the right is a floodlight lighting a gallery. The moon was always blown out when I took the last shot of this panoramic. So I had to take a spot metered reading shot of the moon only and replace it with the blown out one in my photo. And the plane was pure luck :D

Another panoramic. This is the side of the city I live in. The church to the right is next to my flat.

A HDR. Very hard to get this shot. Needed the tripod and some major work to rescue the shadows in Corel Paint Shop Pro

The lovely Chain bridge.

A street scene. There is a lot of traffic in Budapest.

This building was used for art. It was derelict

An empty street on Castle Hill

More on my Flickr site but didnt want to bore you :D

I would definitely recommend a visit!!!

#2 is a fantastic pano. As if you didn't already take great pictures, now you're in a country that just asks to be captured.

thanks Rooz. Everywhere I look seems to be a photo opportunity!!

am loving it (so far..).

Off to Prague today but unfortunately not taking my D80. Staying in a hostel so was afraid it might get robbed. Got my Fuji F11 instead...

First and last are faves as well,

what is up with the building in seven. The verticals flare out at the top, is that a result from the lens, angle or is the building built that way?

Wow, I'd say they're all future postcards but that'd be selling your images short. Truly stunning photography on top of great scenery.

I like #1, #5 and #6.........though I would have preferred a blown out moon in #1....

Wow, amazing shots and amazingly-looking city! I really like #s 1, 4, and 8. #6 is great too, but I think I would like it better in color. Mainly because I like to see color for long exposure shots with trails of headlights and/or taillights. But all of them are stunning!

thanks everyone. I have been away in prague for 5 days. Unfortunately I didnt take my D80 (staying in hostels and worried of getting it stolen). Took my Fuji F11 instead. Was impressed by it (longest I have ever depended on it) but its no D80 :)

Beautiful pictures. I looked at your pictures on Flickr. I think that the panoramic pictures look much better here. Sounds like you are having a wonderful trip. Did you post pictures from Prague?
