Mariinsky Dreamscape

A reworking of a photo from a couple of years back.  Mariinsky Park, Kiev, using Topaz Glow, Topaz Texture Effects (2 times), and perspective correction.  Plus a spot of sun on the left side, because adding your own sunlight is the only way to get it this time of year...

Kiev Perchesk Lavra

The 3rd iteration of this particular photo.  Took the HDR (1st) and painted (2nd) version, made everything except the church B&W, then add a few textures to the other areas of the photo.  With a couple of other minor adjustments.

Deep in the Heart of Kiev 2

This was taken on Trukhaniv Island, deep in the heart of Kiev. 

This is a redo of a photo from a while back.  While I generally liked the previous version, there was something I thought was missing.  See, when it comes to a photo, it often doesn't matter how accurate the photo is to real life; what often matters more is to try to convey how it made you feel or how it looked to you.  This then is a more accurate photo than the previous one, even though, if you look carefully, there is actually more of a painted look to it.

Mixed Mosaics

Seen on Boulevard Lesia Ukrainka, this mosaic seems to have mixed imagery.  On the left to lower left, there's Zodiac imagery, though I really can't tell you what the one just below where the man is sitting is.  In the center, it's obviously a man, quite possibly a student.  Everything off to the right is scientific in nature.  This is one of numerous mosaics on Boulevard Lesia Ukrainka.  Processed through Topaz Glow to give it a more abstract look and to give it a bit of a glow.

No More Child's Play

A rework of something from a few years ago, with added layers, textures, and cool awesomeness added.

This is a long abandoned ride in Hydropark, a summer destination in Kiev.

Dormition Cathedral.  January 2007

Sometimes files sit on your hard drive forever because you just can't convey the mood and feeling you want.  Obviously I took a few liberties with the processing here, but I like what it conveys to me.  I hope you like it too.
