welcome to paradise

Last holiday in bali,Indonesia.... just found this beautiful beach, called "virgin beach". my daughter just walked in front of me, just wanted to get to the beach quickly.

Illuminated

City shooting and decided to use this architectural pillar under a footbridge in our CBD. I decided to use my strobe in the image and not light from the front as it blew out the lights from the structure.

Beauty in Beautiful Places

Had an idea to capture a juxtaposition of a fashion type portrait, in some beautiful location, and made the following image while on a trip to Banff National Park. I typically just do landscape/adventure type of stuff, so this was out of the norm for me. It was a fun shot to make, and hoping to do more in the future. Would love any feedback/...

The Cormorant fisherman

I had planned this picture for quite a while and on the day I took a motor raft up the Li River in China with an interpreter at 3 am hoping the capture pictures during the blue hour. It was almost a disaster due to condensation forming on the lens. I had placed the cameras and lenses in zip lock bags to get them acclimatized but took them out...

Running long

As we were walking, a runner...

Fall Vibes

I do not shoot portraits very often, I always felt like it was not my thing. All that changed somehow when someone lent me their 85mm. It was way more comfortable having a distance of a few meters between the subject and me, and I generally loved the compression I got from that distance.
In post, I did frequency separation and dodge&...

Opinions on this picture?

Hi :)
I took this picture today whilst out on a walk with my friend and I'd love to hear peoples opinions, constructive criticism, etc.
I took the picture with a 50mm f1.8, shot wide open because the background was quite cluttered.
I did some light editing in Lightroom and then colour graded the image in Photoshop.
I...
