Sailing the sky

Gee, it must've been ages since I posted my last picture…

I know it's no good netiquette to not post anything for such a long time, but I'm afraid I have hardly had time to work on my photography lately. I've been very busy with work and my studies, so  that I found myself working less and less on my pictures and spending less and less time on G+.

Anyways, I hope I'll find some more time to post in the coming weeks as I'm currently on term break.

Without any further ado, I'd like to "present" you below picture which is special to me in many different ways: First of all, it's the first picture that I upload that was taken with my D800… Yes, you're right, I finally got to the point where I stopped just talking about buying it and actually ordered one.

And, yea, secondly, it's from Singapore… For me the first time I set food onto South East Asia--the place were I'll spend the next half year (I'll do a exchange semester in HK; please stay tuned for new pictures)…
This picture was taken on probably the third or forth night I was in Spore and I really liked the framing (adds depth and character to so many things). There some more to come which I hope I'll be able to show you soon.

enjoy and let me know what you think...

arc de triomphe

About a year a go I did a trip to Paris and--for some reason I totally missed to post the below pic.

The weather wasn't good at all that day and I was basically always waiting for the sky to clear up at least a little. 

Before taking this picture, a had to seek shelter underneath this great monument as it was hailing pretty hard. Anyways, the flipside of the coin was that I got a little bit a blue and a little bit a sun, which, all in all, made it worth taking this very pic.

Hope you enjoy it.

Marina

Very pumped about the feedback that I received on yesterday's upload, so I thought I'll share a second picture from the Dubai Marina.

This one--as well as the one I shared yesterday--was actaully taken the last evening I spent in Dubai. Last day of my vacation and I just couldn't really sleep. So, I took my tripod and walked all around Dubai Marina.

Oh, and thanks a bunch for all the +1's on yesterday's post.

Here is one of my more recent captures from Dubai taken at the Marina.

Dubai is a pretty breathtaking City and its architecture just knocks you off your feet.

Hope you enjoy it....

as time goes by....

Below is one of my most recent pictures--I took it not even a month ago... However, when I descovered the world of photography for the first time about 1 and a half years ago I was once at the very same location and took a picture of the very same scenery...  First I thought it would be a very nice picture, but then I started to kind of dislike as I started to develop some kind of a "syle". Now that I have a newer version that Ive developed with my most recent post-processing techniques, I'm very pleased with the result. However, who knows where Ill be in a couple years and how my photography will further evolve. For me it was a very interessting thing to sea the difference between now and one and a half years ago...

Hope you enjoy it...

wheat

Another of those wheat pictures. However, I tried out some experimental processing which I think worked quite well with this one.

The picture is quite old, but I just reprocessed it the other day.

Hope you enjoy it....

Edit: Head meets desk--for some reason I wrote corn in the original post which I now just changes to wheat. Cuz, guess what, below picture shows  wheat lol...

poppies

Isn't it great to see what cool effect you can get out of texture blendings??

It looks really artsy fartsy, doesn't it?

Alright, all kidding aside, this is a picture I took a long time ago and I thought it would go well with some textrues blended on top.

I've been building up a texture library for years already and so I've got some pretty neat textures that I like to use for this kinda things. If you're interessted in how to achieve this kinda thins, please go check out +Aaron Nace's (PHLEARN) tutorials on this. Those are really the best tuts I could find on this topic.

clouds over paris

Wow, its been a really nong time that I shared my last pictures. What can I say, I was pretty bussy with study-related stuff and after all I dont really like to leave the house during winter ;).

Below picture is still one of my Paris pictures. I thought I was gonna post these first and will then start to share another series that I took in Vienna and Dubai--mostly for the reason that I have not yet gotten around to process my latest pictures.

While I'm writing this I actually got another tap open where I'm just ordering my D800--finally! Unfortuntely, I will need to make sure that I get my new computer together at the very same time since my current one already screems when I'm processing my 16mpx files. So, I really dont want to experience it handling 36mpx ones. Anywho, this is to say that I'll be back soon with my new cam and in even higher rez FWIW.

Gosh, I got to much to say today and I should defintely also talk about my below pic. Well, I tried some new post-processing techniques on this one which I think worked quite nicely. If you now my previous work, you know that Im pretty crazy about dramatic skies: Here you go... That day I was literally running around because the weather changed so fast and the sky looked different every minute.

Hope you enjoy it....

tower twins

Hey ya guys...

I promised to upload some more of my Paris pictrues some time ago. Unfortunately, I've been quite busy and have never gotten around to do so...

But, here you go...

Gotta admit that it is somewhat inspired by +Trey Ratcliff's picture of the tower with a reflection... But, I just couldn't resist to take a pic with this nice puddle reflection. Admittedly, I still lack some of +Ingo Meckmann puddleizing proficiency, but hey we're working on it ;-)...

Solange at Versailles

Sometimes you’re waiting for about a day for the sky to clear up a little and do sth interessting and it just does not want to happen.  And then, all of sudden, you get the perfect clouds, the sky starts to get a charming golden glow and – you just don’t see anything that would be worth shooting anymore.

One of those days I had recently in Versailles when I was there to shoot the castle. I needed to leave the property since they were about to close and, suddenly, I got the greatest light of the whole day. But, well, an angel came and helped me – a statue of course. Somehow this statue was located in a way that the sunset seemed to come out of the statue – if you know what I’m talking about ;-).
