One of my main goals for this year is to really work on some night photography and more specifically, nightscapes. There is just something so surreal about viewing a familiar landscape under the stars. Now, to me these dunes were not familiar. I had never photographed them before (at least got INTO a dune field). During my trip to death valley, I knew I wanted to take in the sand dunes, but not just any sand dunes. I wanted to find ones that were relatively untouched and tucked away. I did some research and found out about these dunes tucked away in the southern end of the park. On the second day after an incredible sunrise at Zabriskie point, my friend and I made our way out to these dunes two hours away from the heart of the park. Upon arrival, it looked as if we would get rained on once again with the dark gray clouds filling the sky. We quickly got situated for camp and decided to head out into the dune field. A few sprinkles here and there, but nothing that made us think of turning around. The thing with these dunes, is that you can't just drive up to the dune edge. You have to hike a mile or so to reach the base of the dunes which seems a lot longer when you are actually hiking out to them. Once we got to the edge of the dunes, we made sure to be careful and not trample over everything and leave footprints. We didn't see a single footprint out there, it was perfect. We scouted around and shot from various ridges as the storm passed by giving us some nice stormy light. Just around sunset, the skies began to clear. While it would have been nice for the clouds to stick around for sunset, I was even more excited for the clear skies to come. Death valley is known for it's dark skies, and it surely did not disappoint. The milky way began to rise over the dunes and andromeda shined brightly to the left. I got pretty lucky as a shooting star happened to fall on the right side, balancing the sky. This is a blend of three exposures. Two for the landscapes at a low ISO and to get greater depth of field, and a shot of the stars, at a very high ISO and fast aperture. It is a scene I won't forget, and perhaps one of the most technical and planned out shots I have.

I think the composition could have ben better but I really liked what was going on with the boats and water. I find myself pulling away from HDRI because it's so easy to over do it and have it look like a comic book. I would rather have an image that pops with reality. Lately I've been trying to improve my technique both with the camera and post software. My camera is just an entry DSLR with a kit lens. I don't have any money for a Canon 5D Mark III at this time (thats my dream DSLR) so I'm trying to get the most out of what I have. Canons DPP makes me want to pull my hair out and Lightroom isn't much better. I've been having problems with artifacts galore when sharpening, so I opted for ACR to handle my RAW files. So far it seems my workflow is about the same, but with better results. Hope you enjoy this image, I had tons of fun last night making them. Cheers!

My very first time in this beautiful park. Timna has amazing desert landscape, including rock pillars, natural arches and this big, mushroom-like natural rock formation. Seemed like the perfect place for some star trails, so we camped right by and s[ent the night watching the full moon shine upon the scenery.

The classic Varanasi shot.

Varanasi is the oldest city in India (founded on 1200 BC). The ghats are the steps that go down the river so that the people can bathe.

The Ganges is really a goddess that is praised every night with a colourful ceremony. The river is so important for Hindus, that they even carry a small bottle of the river water back to their home.

The river is also the most polluted one in India.

Hope you like it

When my mom and I first made it to the desert the sun was almost hitting the ridge of the mountains. Noticing there were very high clouds i knew we were in for a nice sunset. But i did not expect anything like this! This has to be the most colorful sunset i have ever experienced in my life! The colors were so red it was ridiculous! The sky was literally on fire, it was insane! I was capturing images for about 1 hour once the sun started to put on a show, it was funny cause i kept taking the same images with different colored skies! Started off as a rich yellow then later this. I'm so glad i went to the desert that Sunday! Got to experience this and the Super Moon. Thanks for reading! Thank you for the comments and favorties!

Hi there!

Yet another concept painting, which shows a polluted environment in an imho interesting lighting condition.
The concept sketch took me about 3 hours in Photoshop @ 3k. Quick'n dirty!
I started from scratch and finally overlayed some
textures from animax.it to add some details.
It's a great resource for free textures ... I only can recommend it!

The clouds and smoke-fx are all painted in photoshop cs.

Critiques and comments are always welcome!

The front of Well's cathedral, used in my A2 photography coursework ^^

This cathedral is also renowned for being used as part of the Harry Potter set, mainly used for a few exterior shots and some corridoor shots =]

Feedback is very welcome ^.^

Commissioned artwork for an album cover! The band requested a clock tower with a somber sort of blue/yellow color scheme. This was quite relaxing to paint.

Inspired by many different clock towers, probably mainly the famous Big Ben in London.
Here's the album cover with typography: [link] which I also designed.
