late afternoon on the lake

Sailboats sway in the breeze in this lakeside ICM image. Here I tried to create a more painterly and impressionistic view.

I'd be interested to hear what others feel about this image. In my abstracts I like to challenge the viewer to take a longer look to determine content - in my eyes there are enough visual clues but I know I am...

San Felice - Sunset

Although I brought my tripod, I didn't rip out to try and catch this great sunset as I barely got back to our hotel in time to take these shots. The first is HDR, I think I used 4 of the 5 exposures to merge. The second is just an edited version of the first exposure.

Shooting into the sun is pretty tough. I don't think I have a good...

Clouds over East Pond - Maine

We took a boat ride out onto East Pond between the rain clouds and were treated to some spectacular skies. The wind was crazy, so trying to get good pictures while hand holding the camera in a boat was challenging! I love big dynamic skies and I think I was able to capture some neat shots. Feedback always welcome.

Campbell's Covered Bridge

Built in 1909, this is the last covered bridge in South Carolina. Thankfully, this bridge was saved as a historical landmark and restored to allow foot traffic.

As always, any CC is greatly appreciated! What would you change?


I was at a local bike show with the stunt guys doing a show, I set up for some shots and captured some cool moments send some feedback for if your subject is moving.

Is it still possible to make a living nowadays as a travel photographer?

Anyone can recommend any Professional Travel Photographer who offers private mentoring?


Shadows and Curves

I shot this image as part of a spontaneous series while on vacation in Greece in August.

As it was a vacation I did not take my usual camera gear with me so this was shot using the pro mode on a samsung s9plus.

Ocean Sunset

Hello all,
I have posted this before in the Abstract group but I thought I would go ahead and post it here as well. This was actually the first ICM photo I ever took! This was also about 4 or 5 years ago when I was first getting in to photography. I took hundreds more photos that day but none of them came out as well as the first one. I...
