Went around with my 24-70mm taking photos of stuff.
I have been trying to expand my photography to a wider range of genres, one of which is a category that I am trying to understand through trial & error - fine art.
While I recognize that the modern definition is somewhat of a moving target, I would like the community's opinion on whether the attached image successfully heads toward...
Normally my style is moody and dark but i wanted to try something different, so i decided to edit the same picture in two different ways. Tell me what you think, what style do you like better? Would love to hear your feedback!
A trip down into the Hollow resulted in these photo's. What is normally a 3' wide creek is now about 12' wide.
Here's a composite shot I took back in December. Fairly new to the site (and slightly more serious photography) and have only recently stared using photoshop/lightroom
Took 3 shots to get correct exposures of the sky, midground and foreground - had to make a lot of edits (and I'm considering pulling the blues back a bit).
Each of these images from my portfolio has earned 2 stars. I'm emotionally biased, but being as objective as I can I still think they're each worth a solid 3. Am I wrong? Tell me. And please don't suggest the answer lies in editing them; they stand or fall as they are.
Please feel free to be completely honest and speak plain. If you want...
After waking up at 4 am, 3 hour drive and gruelling hike up the hill at -2°C, I was greeted with this majestic view. Buachaille Etive Mor. Sometimes it's worth putting extra effort.
The Nubble Lighthouse is an iconic location in York, ME. I was finally able to capture a super moon behind it after 2 years and four trips. The best opportunities are in the winter and the atmospheric conditions need to be almost perfect to avoid clouds from blocking the moon. The image is captured a little over a mile away from the lighthouse...
A winter sunset in a field near Pienza, a little village in Tuscany, Italy.
This place is made famous by the movie "The Gladiator". In the scene where the main character remembers the house where he grew up, these are precisely the fields where he walked.
I waited for the right moment when the sun was low enough to illuminate the...

Misty autumn morning at my home town Finland-Porvoo.
A photo from earlier this year on my trip to Olympic National Park. The sea stacks at Ruby Beach were phenomenal. I hurried down to this beach thinking that the light was fading, but for the next 30 minutes, the sky kept getting better and better.
Finally got around editing this image from Lake Bled, Slovenia, shot in January 2018. I had shot this image wanting to take in the whole scene from the sunrise on the right, the Bled Island ofcourse and the Bled Castle on the right. The only answer was to do a pano - shot 5 exposures x 8 vertical images stiched into a pano using LR's merge to...
This is my favorite photo from our week in Scotland, in September of 2016. The parking lots were full, so we had to park at the side of the road. We could barely see the tops of the ruins of the castle.
Feel free to trash my photography, but I love this one.
I was in a dam in the center of Brazil in the state of Goiás with the sky clear and the Lactea way radiant in the sky. To capture the reflection of the Milky Way in the water I had to wait until 5 o'clock in the morning, but I was very happy with the result. Nikon D850, Tamron 15-30 mm f / 2.8, ISO 3200, 5 shots, f / 2.8, 30 seconds.
A photo I took last year of one of the most spectacular waterfalls I've ever seen, Tokettee Falls in Oregon. The hike down to this waterfall was a little challenging, but totally worth it.
Thought I would make a black and white image in honor of Ansel Adam's birthday. Rocks and water make for such a great photography subject it's hard to wrong. Any comments or feedback would be welcomed.
A few weekends ago I hiked up a stream bed to photograph a waterfall. A hard lesson was learned about correct gear, bags, and setup and my camera was dropped in the stream. After purchasing another camera and drying out my lens I needed to reclaim my honor and conquer the falls. Challenge completed!
Looking for some hard honest critique...
This is my first attempt at color grading from the way I understand it. I normally try to keep colors true to the way I saw them with not much slider pushing since I typically Luminosity blend 2-3 images.
With this image, I grabbed the darks and shadows in the rocks with a luminosity mask and "crushed" the blues with a blue tone curve...
