Golden Gate, embedded

Golden Gate, embedded

I woke up at 5 am and drove to Marin Hills a few days ago to catch the sunrise and fog over the Golden Gate Bridge. I took this photo at Slacker Hill, which is about 15-20 min hike up. It was an amazing overview of the scenery. This photo is not an HDR. It […]

Hawaii, to home or to beach

Hawaii, to home or to beach

This particular image has also been shot in Maui Island. I used my tripod and cable release to shoot 5 bracketed images of the scene with 1 EV step. I then merged the files in Photomatix and further post-processed using Lightroom and Photoshop. I tried to avoid using too much color saturation espiecially at the […]

Istanbul, the new inhabitants

Istanbul, the new inhabitants

Here is again a retouch of my an old work. When I compare it to the first version that I made about 4-5 years ago, there is a huge difference. It seems that I changed/improved my post-processing very significantly. There is no shame with post-processing. When people ask, did you do photoshopping, I laugh at them. […]

Time to time, I go back and reprocess my old works. It is interesting that how I can produce significantly different looking photos from the same source. This is another great aspect of making HDR photos. Even one cannot reproduce the same results easily This gives a lot of room to artist to create their […]

Another HDR in Hawaii, and again sunset In this one, I lower the camera to the ground, and try to get the movement of the water as well as the lights from the sun. How did I get the water clear as if it was taken with a single fast shutter speed? Well, I made […]

Hawaii, the life is beautiful

Hawaii, the life is beautiful

I have not watched The Descendants yet but I think the life in Hawaii is always beautiful. If you have such a great weather all the time, every sunrise and sunset like watching a cartoon, great nature to hike, snorkel, surf and so on…what else you would like from life 😉 This is an HDR […]

HDR photography is the best for sunset scenes. It can contribute a lot to your images. For a sunset scene, if you just want to shoot normal rather than HDR, please do not try to shoot hand-hold. Tripod is absolute necessary even for single regular shoot. If you are serious with photography, do not think […]

Seeburg See

Seeburg See

This was taken when I had a crazy trip in Goettingen to discover nice landscapes to shoot. I was traveling to unknown places, quite deserted and godforsaken…Several hours, I did not see any single person…I had to wait two and half hours for the bus to get back…However, after all, I achieved to get a […]

and we had a break…

and we had a break…

on the way to Sudelfeld, we stopped, or better saying I made Chris to stop to shoot some photos. While we were on the way early in the morning, this time of the travel had the best light for shooting the mountains. I did not really want to miss this conditions and made several shoots […]
