And the last picture from B&H. Župa Dubrovačka in Croatia is where you see the lights, but the place where the photo was taken and the mountain are in Bosnia&Herzegovina. From these positions our neighbours used to bomb Dubrovnik region, you can see how vulnerable it was.

Snupix excellent pictures!! Some you took from Vlora and Llogara look to be the same pictures I took a couple of weeks myself over there (link to my album here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/ )

same picture as yours
image hosted on flickr


One question though about your excellent pictures...How do you take a picture from inside a car and make it look so good?? I guess for starters...a clean windshield (mine was covered in waterspots)...but maybe you have some good technique...and editing...to make them look so good?? (as in unhindered by the glass inside the car and the movement)

Any tips for us amatours??

Hehe, it's a great road, really fascinating scenery. I'll take a look into your album.

About the pictures, first of all I tried to have the windshield as clean as possible all the time, but more important, I used a polarizer all the time to remove reflections on the windshield, which was more or less done well. Sometimes I pushed the camera out of the window to make a better picture...




About editing, it's just resizing, changing the gamma a little bit, and sharpening, and that's it, the same process automatically on all the pics.

Now these are the last two pics on the D8 road before we turn inland behind Biokovo mountain and on the construction sites of the A1 (see the map above).






The last part a bit later...

What a fantastic thread! Thank you for this, Snupix. Since I'm very interested in roads, this was extremely interesting for me.

I have a few questions for you, if you don't mind.

1. Could you tell us what car were you driving? I know it's a bit off-topic, but I'm really interested.
2. How do you manage to drive and take such a good photos?

Again, thank you for such a great thread!
