Just a day after finishing a month as a 500px guest editor, a photo of mine from NYC was chosen as an Editor's Choice.  Things like this make a 3am bus ride into the city worth it :-)
A beautiful New York City sunrise from behind the Williamsburg Bridge and underneath the Manhattan Bridge. Photographed from underneath the Brooklyn Bridge.

"Intergalactic trip” from Flávio Parreiras makes me think of a magical ride through time. As if this is what Doc Brown would see when he traveled back to the future.  I love the darkness of the train in front of the bright stars. Nicely done!

"The Accidental Tourist” from Miles Morgan is a simple long exposure photography with a small waterfall. The greens are quite appealing, the fog in the distance as well.  Then there’s the still leaves in the foreground. They’re nicely exposure and with just enough details. I’m really enjoying it!

Finally getting around to dealing with images from the fall..... of 2012. Taken on a fantastic day out with my American Idol Ryan ZeDyar and his fiancé Candace. This was the first time I got to spend any real time with the two of them together, and it was extremely touching to see the beauty of their relationship and its a pleasure to have watched it grow since this day. It's also AMAZING to see how much Candace has grown as a photographer in...

"Burj Al Arab VS Milky-Way” from Ashraf Ahmed is one of the coolest Dubai photos I’ve seen in a while.  Not only do you get the beauty of that skyline and architecture, but you also get the milky way and stars above. Add the pretty black and white processing and it’s a total winner.

"Wheat Growers Sunrise” from Ray Green was my necessary final Editor’s Choice for today.  Why? Because I’m headed to Palouse, Washington soon.  So not only is the photo incredible with the textures and shapes and light and color. But it’s a location I may have a chance to see and photograph as well.  I’m loving it and can’t wait!

#500pxEditorsChoice
Another often shot composition from atop Steptoe Butte in the Palouse region of Eastern Washington State. I thought I would post this sunrise version of a similar composition (taken the day before at sunset) that I posted few ago) so that those interested can get an idea of the light variation. Thank you for viewing, voting and/or any constructive comments!

"The Boxer” from Jessica Drossin is an elegant display of light, texture, lines and composition.  It’s such a fun photo, even with the person looking away.  I love the color toning, the fog and that he is dragging the boxing gloves. So nicely done.

It's weird to work on two radically different series at the same time. Oh well... For the Actor / Singer Songwriter Titus Makin's album.

“Brina” from Maxim Guselnikov is a simple portrait of a young woman, staring directly at the camera. She is mad at something. What do you think it is?  Her skin is smooth with elegant light. Her jacket is tough leather and you can see the grain.  The compression of the portrait is on point, as the background is so perfectly blurred.

"steam and dust” from Greg du Toit is a beautiful silhouette of a leopard in a path of sun rays through the brush. The rim light on the cat is incredible, and there is still so much detail, like the whiskers.  I’m enjoying the composition and processing choices Greg made as well.

It was a cold and nippy night in South Africa’s Mala Mala Game Reserve when we received a radio call to say that one of the dominant male leopards was on his night patrol and heading our way. Asking my guide to switch off and to wait in the dip it seemed to take ages for our subject to appear out of the dark night. When the leopard got to the rise in front of us, he paused and turning his head to the side, his warm exhaling breath turned to steam...

"Above the Foggy Lineup”  from Toby Harriman caught my attention because it’s not your normal photo of the Golden Gate bridge. The composition is very different than the usual.  Add the beautiful colors and strong fog and clouds and you have an awesome photo well worth an EC.

"Oihua (Scream)” from Iker Aizkorbe is such a beautiful, and cool tones scene.  It’s cool, with some warm tones included. The green is just saturated enough and the reds add a nice flavor to the mix. There’s also a lot of really great details throughout, like the missing branches and bark textures.

Affordable and top quality! Rich came to our house and explained the products and service efficiently, and clearly. He made it easy for anyone to understand. The install was fairly quick, maybe 3 hours total with one person. We have a small house so we didn't need much. But we paid for some add-ons which work great as well. I set off the alarm accidentally at first, and the call center was on top of it. So far so good, and we couldn't be happier with GPS!
