A powerful thunderstorm in the downtown area of Helsinki ⚡ Naah, had a boring day, couldn´t resist the little play with the app, though this shot was taken with my first compact camera Canon PowerShot IS A590 about eight years ago. I lived close to this spot at the time, in the area called The Lines that is part of the district of Kallio, such a bohemian area and they consume the most red wine in the city hehe 🍷 I used to came to watch the lightning to this spot trying to shoot them at the same, never succeeded 😒 Wish I had taken this shot for real! I usually don´t use the effects in my pics but now I´m making an exception...for a boring day 😎


gary22: looks good to me marisol.👍💋

_marisol: Glad to hear...on the right you can see a ferry that takes you to the zoo, called Korkeasaari, meaning in Eng High Island hehe. Thanks! 😊

kyle1337: Still looks beautiful as usual Marisol!❤👌😊👍

Posted: 2018 Jan 22 9:25:09 PM

_marisol: Thank you so much kyle! I like this view, it´s actually not the city center area but the (expensive) neighborhood in its vicinity, a bit like Upper East Side in NYC. I used to came to walk along the sea canal (that water really is the sea) when I lived around 500-600 meters away from this spot. Such a wonderful place to have a evening stroll 😊

andy-w: 👋👋👋 very honest of you marisol...convincing results 👍

Posted: 2018 Jan 22 9:32:46 PM

_marisol: As for my pictures, I wouldn´t lie if I´d used the effects or other tricks. I´ve posted a few double exposure picture and have always explained what I´ve done to the picture. I dislike photoshopping, I mean the kind of you put some animals to hang on the trees or change all the clouds or buildings etc...it´s the manipulation of the image as well as the viewer. I want to keep my stuff natural but sometimes it´s good to have a little fun 😛 Yes, the result looks amazingly real deal. Thanks Andy, and have a peaceful morning...if it´s possible for you on Wednesday 😉

mystmr61164: Sometimes Marisol, you just have to play 😎

Posted: 2018 Jan 22 10:01:18 PM

_marisol: Yup, this actually was a bedroom play 😀 I edited the picture with my phone sitting on my bed 😁 was nice to play in the bedroom haha. Thanks Mike and good night 😊

rud15662864: Lightning splitting the sky!!! That's Amazing. Perfect timing...

Posted: 2018 Jan 23 2:56:11 AM

_marisol: Not sure if you read my capture but, unfortunately, timing has nothing to do with this shot...as much as I´d like it! I don´t tend to use the effects but in this case I made an exception. But if my lightning shot taken in Maracaibo in October 2015 is still in my photos, check it out, timing was more than perfect in this shot, but I think FR has removed the picture as it was posted over 2 years ago. That´s their policy. Thanks a lot!

Posted: 2018 Jan 25 1:59:18 PM

rovin: Works wonderfully on this shot. Sometimes effects look very real. 😀

Posted: 2018 Jan 23 3:11:52 AM

_marisol: Yes, sometimes they do. I´ve played with them just for fun, and perhaps to learn something, though phone apps today, you just tap what you want and that´s pretty much it. They´re made so easy to use that learning from then is questionable. But must admit, this looks amazingly real in this picture. So great to have you back! Hope you´re doing well. Thank you 🙋‍♂️💗

teomax: ciao Marisol🤗 che splendido scatto e che tempismo perfetto.

Posted: 2018 Jan 23 7:00:21 AM

_marisol: Ma ciaoooo!!!! Ma Teo, mi amigo, non hai letto la mia didascalia??? La vista è incantevolíssima (è la mia parola nello stile slang di MAR 😀), ma...questa cosa del tempismo è npo 'controversa, vale a dire che è un effetto! Normalmente, non uso gli effetti nelle mie foto...bene, tranne ora l'ho fatto! Non potevo resistare perché l'effetto sembra sbalorditivo con l'immagine. Gracias infinitas querido amigo! Ti auguro una buona serata! A presto! 😊 🙋‍♀️💗

Posted: 2018 Jan 25 4:15:51 PM
teomax: Ma ciao marisol 😀 scusa ma spesso resto estasiato dalle foto è commento subito ahaha. Se questo era un effetto accidenti, complimenti davvero perché hai fatto un ottimo lavoro. 🤩🤩 Ti mando un abbraccio grande buona serata

Posted: 2018 Jan 25 5:20:34 PM
_marisol: Bhe...a volte mi dimentico anche di leggere la didascalia e quindi mi affretto a scrivere un commento 🏃‍♀️ fretta fretta...per niente. Grazie ancora! Ti mando anche un abbraccio! Divertiti con la tua nuova fotocamera 📷💜

buzohippo: Great edit, I like it. Marisol, you may have noticed that Fhotoroom has had some issues recently and some problems were really annoying (like the bots liking tons of photos) so more and more users of this awesome community are having an account on Instagram. I was told you don't like it much but it can be just an option not to lose connection. There are lots of us there already. In case you change your mind I leave you my IG account: @masha_smiith 😉❤️

Posted: 2018 Jan 23 8:47:52 AM

_marisol: Quite frankly, I haven´t noticed any major issues in recent times, maybe FR have finally taken our complaints seriously. We should note that running FR, like apps and website, it´s not free and they need to get revenue to keep the wheels running. I´m quite sure FR is not rich, rather vice versa, I bet they have lack of money. Perhaps this is why they can´t fix everything right away. When it comes to Insta, for me it´s about do I have time to manage 2 different account. Fr takes me so much time that I can´t always response all the comments I received, and it su.cks! For now I´m gonna be like a bystander and will follow how things will go...but I´ll keep in mind what you just told me (and ur IG address), who knows, maybe someday we meet each other in Insta 😊 Oh, and thanks a lot dear 💗

_alessandro_: Buongiorno Mari, trovo che questa straordinaria foto sia davvero un ottimo lavoro, ma sarebbe stato perfetto, se tu saresti riuscita a cancellare la traccia di fulmine sul palazzo e sull'acqua! Non arrabbiarti se ho notato ciò, ma sarebbe stata perfetta! 😍👌❤ Buona giornata! Quendo avrai tempo, sarei curioso se tu potessi dirmi cosa ne pensi delle foto che ti ho spedito, quando avrai tempo, ripeto. Grazie e buona giornata!🌼🌸❤

Posted: 2018 Jan 23 9:47:04 AM

_marisol: Si, lo so ma non mi sono preoccupato di rimuoverli, pensavo che fosse più o meno lo stesso, anche se sarebbero stati facili da rimuovere, è una foto effetto qindi non mi importava. Y si, dovrei passare attraverso le foto che hai inviato, ma ho abbia avuto problemi con mi laptop, come ti ho detto. Sembra che ho bisogno di comprare un nuovo laptop la prossima estata, ma non un Mac!! Ma hey, guarderò le tue foto prima del mio viaggio, e poi ti darò un feedback, ok?? Ti ringrazio tantissimo! Buona notteee...dormi come un tronco ma non russaro haha 😝 🌜💤💤 🤐🙉🤕

jerry0522: I've never had much success with lightning shots either Mari...I think this year I'm going to go all out and see if I can get a good one...you up for the challenge hehe Helsinki sure is a beautiful city and you captured it well, with or without the lightning :D

Posted: 2018 Jan 23 1:38:05 PM

_marisol: This was my compact camera era and took most my pics using an autopilot as I call camera auto shooting function. I´ve taken approx 10 shots using this function with my Sony, and just because I showed my husband how it works if he wants to take pics of Sandra. He´s too lazy to learn how to use the manual settings 🙄 This spot is about 1.5 miles away from the city center but it´s kind of part of the center anyway. I loved to live in the area. Helsinki is indeed a beautiful city, the sea is everywhere and we have a truly gorgeous historic center and several manor and villa districts. Your embassy is located in a park-like manor district, almost opposite the UK´s embassy. Hope you can sometimes visit here and witness all beauty of the city yourself :)

_marisol: Btw, the 1st round of our presidential elections is over. Think you have a good guess who got my vote 😀Yup, the person you mentioned in your email. Now we have wait for the final round. Hope you succeed in shooting lightning. I´ve managed to do it once properly, the pic from MAR I posted back in OCT 2015, so it´s already deleted :/ I might re-edit this pic. Thanks, it´s time for morning coffee. Good night 🙋‍♀️ 🌜

Posted: 2018 Jan 26 3:25:09 AM
jerry0522: Of course it would be my dream to visit places like Heisinki and I haven't given up hope. I just need to look at people like Al for inspiration as he is like 12-15 years older than me and traveling the world. We shall see but I do have big plans for exploring my country first :D

Posted: 2018 Jan 26 12:46:58 PM
jerry0522: Good to hear about about OUR candidate :D I know the odds are long for an ultimate victory but I believe maybe this is just the beginning for your country pushing back. I was just reading about George Soros giving a 1 hour speech at Davos ugh! He is enemy #1 for people who believe in national sovereignty!

Posted: 2018 Jan 26 12:56:37 PM
_marisol: The current president can face the tough challenge from our candidate but most important is the message to the elite. That most of the people want a change. Yeah, that prick, Soros...funding this funding that, bloody old mummy :D Now my blood pressure is raising haha...one of our ex prime minister is an EU´s commissioner. We are not allowed to vote for these commissioners! This quisling got this post by giving a few billion tax payer´s money to Greece, and Soros was in the background at that time. German & English banks got the money and the people of Greece got just nickles and dimes. But hey, let´s talk more about this and other things via email :) If you have time, check out this lens on eBay https://www.ebay.com/itm/... I´d like a better landscape lens for the range 20mm-40mm. It´s a pancake lens but appreciated and the price is good :)

Posted: 2018 Jan 26 6:50:41 PM
jerry0522: Hah yeah email is probably best for those type of discussions :D Now take a deep breath or two haha Nice lens with a great price!!! That is what I like about a prime lens is you get awesome glass at a low price!!! 24mm is 36mm equivalent on our Sony camera's so a little on the long end but still useful for landscape and a great general purpose range. Also at f2.8 it would be good for some astro photography too :) You know another great thing is how compact that would be on your Sony...you could almost put it in your pocket :D

Posted: 2018 Jan 26 7:19:54 PM
jerry0522: Oh shoot except you would need your adapter but still pretty compact!

Posted: 2018 Jan 26 7:21:09 PM

hogman72664 or david: It's an impressive pic even if it is an effect. I wish I'd taken the part you took but then I always wish that. ;-)
