Gear: Canon 7D + Tokina 11-16 f2.8 Settings: f7.0 | 1/50 | ISO 100 Post process: 3 exposure digital blending (DRI) dodging and burning curves adjustments to balance out the exposure Weekend! /Mike

365 Project: Day 187

I took this shot in Boracay,  in front of Crystal Cove Island.  We had a boat ride and went island hopping.  I took this on the way back to the hotel and I saw this nice golden sunset and it’s a sin not to capture it.  Anyway, time really flies, in a few days, I’ll be back to work!

365 Projec : Day 183

365 Project : Day 182

When I saw this picture, I really want to go in there and sit while watching the sun rise….

365 Project : Day 179

This was taken in Hatta – Oman Road…  I wanted to experiment with black and white, recently I don’t feel like processing in color.  BTW, I just got myself a new LCD monitor an HP LP3065 30″ Wide color gamut monitor and it is huuuuge!  Probably, my eyes is getting tired too much color in this massive display 🙂 Gear: Canon 450D + Sigma 10-20mm Settings: f8.0 | 1/25 | ISO 100 Post processing: 3 exposures combined using DRI Applied […]
