    Some looks like very artificial, but some looks like very real… nice post.

    Wow, that’s some collection.

    Bruno’s right; some do look fake, though still beautiful.

    All I can say is WOW. Very nice shooting. Thanks for sharing

    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.

    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!
