The Last light of day

I took this photograph last summer at a near mountain side by the main road , people rarely go to this ridge but the view of the city and the flower fields are just stunning to look at .I had to come to this place like 10 times A.K.A 10 days in a row because the weather was just not cooperating either there were clouds ,dust ,mist ,tons of bugs i almost lost all hope for my vision of this place ¬†but all of a sudden a day came that was perfect : perfect sun,color , no bugs or dust or mist and finally i could capture this place in all it’s glory. I did wait till the last minute of the sunset so the sun can be a tiny bit bellow the mountain horizon so it can have that starry effect and also it will give some shadows to the fields bellow .

Also there is behind the scenes VIDEO of this photo that you can see here :

I also shot this photo while i was on vacation in Egypt hurghada, the shot was kinda complicated because there were always people inside i mean it was packed 24/7 because the food was amazing literally everything on the menu was well prepared and delicious .After a talk with the friendly restaurant manager Sayed about doing this shoot he kindly agreed to give me access before the restaurant opened early in the evening before all the guests arrived for dinner . I took my camera on my tripod and all the cooks and the master chef came to me because i was the guy with the huge camera ( i had the nikon d800 back then ) i said no problem and shot a group photo of the staff and everyone was happy but i had only minutes to capture all the angles of the beautiful restaurant so i stepped up my game .After i took the images i had no idea how well will the final image look i had no laptop with me to process them right away but after i got home i processed the images and was amazed to see the results i mean the polished wooden floors , the palm leaf pillars ,the one of a kind animal engraved chairs and of course  the best thing was the ridiculously real Savannah sunset ceiling , Just take a 2 minute look around this photo and you will be amazed by the many details of this unique restaurant .

I shot this image while staying at the Egyptian resort ¬†while on vacation . After getting up and down on almost every building to find the perfect spot so the walking path aligns with the setting sun ¬†finally found the right building , it was difficult but worth it .The heat was extremely intense the sun was right in my face pretty much was sweating bullets and so was my lens but thanks to my previous shot from the pool learned to carry a microfiber cloth with me which saved the shots ,and as always egytian sunsets and sunrises are the best i don’t know if its the desert air or the African continent but there is something special about them .

This is a 9 shot bracketed image  , post processed in photomatix first and then manually blended in the parts that were bad in photomatix like the sun and shadows in the buildings left and right .

Plugins used -nik software  color efex and onone pefecet photo suit to get the contrast and colors right .

Enjoy ūüėÄ
