Summer Heat

I saw some smoke in the field behind my house and decided to go check it out. After realizing I wasn't going to report him to the fire department, he was more than willing for me to take some photos.

Sunset in the Teide National park

This is my very first post here on Fstoppers. I am an architecture photographer mainly, based in the Canary Islands (Spain) but I am in love with nature, hiking and I like cultural habits to be kept fresh. So I started this personal project of mine which consists in recreating and photographing scenes with impressive nature/sights which could...

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...

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/...

Running long

My Father-in-law and I took a trip to the Oregon Coast to go fishing early one winter's day.

As we drove to the harbor, we stopped off to go check the weather conditions from the lighthouse - I thought I best bring my camera JUST IN CASE there were some cool sea conditions and scenes from up high..

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...
