In case you're wondering this is a shot of a part of the DIFC – part reflection, part distortion through a window – and beyond that I don't have too much else to say about this one other than that I like the detail and the way in which the various elements of the original scene interact/overlap. As always though, let me know what you think.
On a different matter: I'm pleased to say that Craig and I are now in Bulgaria. I drove down to Welwyn Garden City on Monday, picked up Craig at around 1pm, then drove down to Dover. We then got the ferry to Calais and drove until 1am - through France, Belgium, Holland and a small part of Germany. On Tuesday we drove almost 1000 miles: through the rest of Germany, all of Austria and most of Hungary, which took us 15 hours. We spent the night in a small campsite at Mako, a few kilometres short of the Romanian border. On Wednesday we drove through Romania, which can best be described as hellish: not least because it took almost 17 hours to traverse the potholes and roadworks. We were also slightly hampered by the fact that the van broke down at one point. It has an electronic throttle: which failed; i.e. you could press the pedal, but nothing happened. It recovered after we stopped, but it did add a certain tension to the rest of the journey :)
We've been busy since we got here, so haven't had any time to shoot yet, but I'm hoping we'll get out over the weekend.
This is a cool shot. I like how the bird appears to be flying through a hoop, sort of like a circus display...
The two dominant tones - purplish and sepia seem to be at play here. Not sure how that came about; if in post-processing, was that your intended effect?
On first seeing this as a thumbnail on my iPhone via Twitter, I was struck by the two tones (and the fact that it would make a nice postage stamp :). Made me want to go and check out the large version.
Whatever you did it works really well with this subject, which has an intriguing level of complexity for the eye and brain to sort out.
btw, enjoying reading and watching your adventures in a foreign land via twitter and youtube!
Well handcrafted, but I don't care much for these artsy pictures. I prefer your documentary photos. Specially the portraits. Those are to become legendary.
What a wonderful result.
That bird with what seems to be a hoop(?) in the middle "breaks" any type of "cliche" that you can assign to the different reflections photos.
That bird is so cool.. and not real? Looks like a moment in a Mahler symphony when all 10 french horns, 8 trumpets and 4 tubas are playing along with the soaring strings and woodwinds... an incredibly thick sonic collision that, somehow, is all music and you want to hear more. Glad you guys made it safely.
My first impression on looking at this image is "hustle-and-bustle" which seems odd since I only see one person in it. I suspect the layering is the cause, though and I love the effect which is accentuated by the telephoto perspective compression. The way you have given the overall image a monochrome treatment yet maintained colour in the reflections is also superb. Overall, another really interesting, engaging work - thanks!
Curiously complicated :)
this is brilliant, bravo
Chaotic but cool. Like the two tones and all the details of each of the elements on the photo.
Nice work! The post-processing futuristic-type effect is fantastic! I enjoy all the different structural elements that you included in this image. There is so much to view especially with an involved reflection.
I could look at this for ages (and I am). I think I disagree with Crex above, I'd like to see more of these 'artsy' pictures. There's nowt wrong with your other stuff like.
This shot is amazing. You really captured a since of movement and mood. Almost has a deja vu feel to it. Really nice and a little haunting.
The bird makes the shot, very nice processing too. I like the stairs on the lower right.
This one is nice. I like the color tones of the final image. And bird fits really nice!
la sensation de plusieurs superpositions, j'aime beaucoup et la photo et la teinte que tu lui as donnée
I love this one very much. The color tones and the details are beautiful!
Great photo, I enjoy it much.
