Had to choose between staying at home watching TV or taking a deep dive into the nocturnal secrets of Alentejo, in the south of Portugal. Guess which one I chose?

This was my first ever time trying to do a proper capture of the Milky Way, so I couldn't resist showing you three quickly edited images, where I just increased contrast and highlights in the sky and applied basic noise reduction. Now I just need to learn how to post-process these photos and get rid of the huge amounts of noise, so that I can present you proper final images!

Location: Alqueva

José, this is absolutely breathtaking, stunning.
Imagine, for just a moment, if between our trip
from (Here) and wherever (There) is,
we would just float through this Majestic Creation.
Thank you, especially, for not staying home.

My friends, I'm extremely pleased to annouce that one of my photos has won the third prize of the "TIPA Photo Trophy 2015", part of the famous "Trierenberg Super Circuit & Special Themes Circuit 2015".

Quoting their website: The "TIPA Photo Trophy 2015" forms part of the "Trierenberg Super Circuit & Special Themes Circuit 2015", the world's largest photo art contest, held since 1992. Over the years, amateurs, professionals, photographic clubs and artists have submitted more than 101 000 images to the contest and entries have been received from over 110 countries around the globe. "

The image which won was my "Colossus" photo made in Madeira Island. I have submitted some images from Iceland but I'm extremely proud to see that an image from Portugal has won the prize!

I wasn't expecting this at all, as this is the third "serious" contest I've ever entered. I always refused to participate in contests, due to their inherent strong subjectivity, but since I realized they are a powerful way to get more exposure and participate in new projects, I decided to start participating in selected contests since the beggining of 2015.

Ominous sky, freezing water, savage sea, and yet I miss this place like no other... Shooting in the Jokulsarlon beach was an otherworldly experience, and I think you can easily understand why with this image.

My "Constant Awe" photo from Iceland, depicting the Logmanúpur mountain, was published in Photography Week Issue 133. Once more, a great pleasure to see my work published in the world's best-selling digital photo magazine! And by the way, congratulations to Duarte Sol, a great portuguese photographer, to have one of his photos featured on the cover!

"The Natural Networks IV" | Vila Nova de Milfontes, Portugal

Entangled in the endless stream of thoughts, mirrored by the natural networks of the Earth, anger subsides and serenity finally prevails.

José Ramos © http://www.facebook.com/joseramosphotography

The story: 
Shot recently in Vila Nova de Milfontes, in one of my favourite spots. When the tide is low at sunset, you can witness this intricate and beautiful pattern of exposed rocks. This is just the second time I've been at this spot, as you need to shoot it under the right conditions. It's not easy to manage the simultaneous presence of low tide, good sunset, clouds, sun orientation and available time. There were just two photographers shooting this place, including me,, showing that Portugal must be one of the most under-rated photo destinations in the world...

This was one of the first times where I had the opportunity to test the new Firecrest filters that Formatt Hitech sent me. Used a 7 stop full ND on this one, along with a 3 stop Soft ND Grad and a 3 stop Reverse Grad (prototype) for the sky.

Technical details:
Sony a77 + Sigma 10-20mm 
Exposure: 30 seconds 
Aperture: f9 
ISO: 100 
Formatt Hitech Firecrest filters: 7 stop Full ND; 3 stop soft ND Grad, 3 stop Reverse Grad 
Manfrotto Tripod 
Wireless remote shutter

Just finished updating the Iceland portfolio in my website. Now it's finally starting to look like a proper portfolio for this stunning place. What do you think?

Photo of the Kirkjufell mountain, made during the second day of the Iceland trip in Sept 2014. After sleeping inside the rental car in Keflavik (the plane arrived at 1am), I decided to head to Kirkujfell next day. I had seen this mountain so many times on many galleries, and yet it still kept me fascinated every single time with its singular shape, frequently adorned by beautiful waterfalls. As soon as I arrived, I could feel my heart racing wit...

"Synchronicity"  Kirkjufell, Iceland

When all elements combine on a single landscape, photons start creating music, and visual dreams suddenly become real.

José Ramos © http://www.joseramos.com

My second published Kirkjufell sunset shot. After sleeping inside the rental car in Keflavik (the plane arrived at 1am), I decided to head to Kirkujfell next day. I had seen this mountain so many times on 500px and other galleries, and yet it still kept me fascinated every single time with its singular shape, frequently adorned by beautiful waterfalls. As soon as I arrived I could feel my heart racing with the excitement, and I rushed to the spot and photographed it from many angles until it was absolutely dark. 

I'm not one who likes to brag about being "absolutely unique" on a certain place, creating his "own interpretations" of a scene, just for the sake of setting myself apart from other photographers. This photo is a great example of that. A Kirkujfell photograph with the three waterfalls is an image beaten to death? Well, under the perspective of online photography addicts or people with giant budgets, most certainly yes, but still only about 0,0000001% of photographers have the chance to visit such place. This is so much more about showing visions of nature than showing ourselves...

Technical data:

Sony a77 + Sigma 10-20mm 
Aperture: f/11 
Shutter speed: 30 seconds 
Focus: Manual (for hyperfocal distance) 
Wireless Remote Timer 
Filters. Formatt Hitech ProStop IRND 4 stops full ND, 3 stop soft ND Grad

"The Divided Self" | Carrasqueira, Portugal

"Abandoning clothes and riding the sea, floating above finished paths and ruminating over the avoided ones. These are the lost fragments of the self in ruins, a sum of choices leading to the final voyage, towards an endlessly changing and uncertain destiny."

José Ramos © http://www.joseramos.com

Technique:

Another shot from the amazing pier in Carrasqueira. I just love to photograph this place! It's a pity that it is so fragile, making me think it won't probably be there for too long.

Used a Standard ND from Hitech for the long exposure, using it's usual strong sky magenta cast to create this fiery red sky.

Sony a77 + Sigma 10-20mm
Exposure: 30 seconds
Aperture: f9.5
ISO: 100
Manual Focus
Tripod, remote shutter
3 stop soft ND Grad filter (Hitech)
10 stop ND filter (Hitech)

Photographer - Landscape/Nature Photography | Doctor in Psychiatry
Introduction
My name is José Ramos and I'm a 29 year old nature/landscape photographer, and a doctor (in the field of Psychiatry), from Portugal.

I've developed an increasing interest in photography over the last years, and the passion grew so strong that this is the art I've chosen to express myself, as well as pay hommage to the beauty and power of the world which surrounds us.

Currently dividing my professional time between medicine and photography, I'm constantly struggling to find time to develop my skills in both areas. So far, with passion, this has been possible, at the expense of sleeping hours, but it always pays off in the end.

The main goal with my images is to depict and create my own interpretation of what surrounds us, sharing my vision in the form of photography.
