I submitted this to flickr’s “Best Shot 2016” contest. I had quite a few shots that I really liked, so I posted them to Facebook and asked for feedback. First I am humbled by the response, but also very appreciative that so many people took the time out to give me their feedback. It was also interesting to see which pictures didn’t get any likes and which ones evoked an overwhelming response.
I have gathered some creepy pictures, figuring Halloween would be the best time to post them.
You could write a horror story about this picture.
This picture looks fundamentally different that the previous ones. First, it is taken at a much closer distance. Second, the subject was a long series of white, lighted spheres on sticks. I really like the effect this gives – even though it is very abstract.
The bright colors on the trees made walking around the park in the dead of winter feel like walking around candyland. It is not only visually appealing, but also surreal and makes the experience memorable.
Night photography presents a number of challenges. While the trees are bright enough to get a snapshot with a camera, to get truly high quality pictures I took the steps detailed below. These worked for me in the situation, but they aren’t set rules. Actually I would be interested to know if anyone disagrees or has additional tips.
