    nice!

    I suppose the “fake” pictures people are referring to are mostly HDR-images. Since people expect pictures to have a low dynamic range it takes a moment to realize those are real pictures anyway.

  • Great collection – thanks for sharing

  • Mansell, 19 April 2012

    The moodiness of these images have a high emotional impact, so much so, that I need to focus on each one, including a pause, before moving to the next.

    These are an inspiring examples of the possibilities. The complimentary colors strengthen the emotional effects. Nice work!
