id love to place some work within your e-magazine, but i'm afraid my OLC work is off limits. If theres anything else youre interested in that isnt OLC, please do not hesitate to let me know!

Best wishes

Very interesting and beautiful, the umbrellas just catch all the atention and you want to see them all the time. Is like if you really were watching those umbrellas fly.
Good work!

CITIGROUP, SAVE US FROM THE NON-RED UMBRELLAS

this is pretty freaking awsome. the grainy wash overlaying the picture amps up the urban setting and gloomy weather. is that a filter?

i love the low shot. you feel totally incased by the rising buildings and the perspective on the rain drops is bang on. all these vertical lines really work to assentuate the depth of the image. also, i dig the way you've treated the buildings- the blurs of red and warmer tones in the lower sections cause the foreground to jump towards us amidst all those blues and greys. the loose brushstrokes also give a great impression of a city scape and this hazy detail dosn't detract from the sharper umbrellas.
