Golden Ball Lake

I took this photograph last summer in Aerodrom ,this is one of the couple man made lakes there as a part of the lakes(seven lakes in total ) city park Skopje .The story behind this photo was funny because a friend of mine who lives near the lakes told me you can do a fantastic photo here and i was extremely skeptical after my trip to Madrid,Spain because i saw tons of beautiful fountains there which were 100s of years old . After i arrived to see these new small lakes i was surprised and spent 4 hours shooting around the park and found this golden ball fountain most interesting so i did it in HDR and it came out really well ,all in all it was a great day for HDR.

Enjoy

Nature’s Window

I took this photo last autumn i was really sunny and colorful with all the leafs falling down just a beautiful sight .I made the composition as best as the sun let me so it looks like a window directly into the nature with all of its magic i was fiddling with my lens for like an hour before i got the sun where i wanted it to be but it turned out great ,although i took like 10 or 11 frames to cover the sunset with a camera that has 14,4 ev stops of dynamic range which explains how much they will evolve in the future to get to the level when we do not need hdr but till then the hdr fun will continue .

10-11 bracketed shots 1 ev apart  blended in photomatix for the base photo and blended in the rest by hand in photoshop along with some nik software color corrections  and contrast corrections.

Camera: Nikon D800 14-24mm F2.8  at 16mm

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 :
