Devil's Stream by KeldBach Devil's Stream by KeldBach
Čertovka, also known as the Devil's Stream, is a small, idyllic canal running through the Malá Strana quarter of Prague, Czech Republic, 2009.

HDR processed and tone mapped in Photomatix Pro from a single RAW file. Perhaps a little over-done, but the colours were rather dull in the original shot, and there wasn't much contrast either due to the fading light. Also see:





Please note me if you're interested in purchasing any of my works. Prints will then be made available at RedBubble.com.

Your did really well in your post-processing and brought a simple scene to life, Keld! I noticed from Google Earth that the west of Prague is a large river-looking waterway that stretches all the way to north sea. Is the canal shown here part of the waterway I saw?

Thanks, Cecily. The canal is just a small and insignificant tributary of the Vltava river (also known as the Moldova river). You can find it on Google Maps too: [link]

Thanks for the info, Keld! Yes, it's what I noticed from the satellite. It didn't look all that insignificant in comparison to the size of nearby houses though!

You're right, Cecily. It's only insignificant compared to the much bigger main river. I found this funny story about the Devil's Stream: [link]

Thanks for sharing the story link, Keld! I think Devil's Stream deserves the name "Prague Venice". :)

It certainly does. I would like to go on a boat trip there on a warm summer's evening :)
