About me:

I began my journey into photography when I took an old film camera on a backpacking trip into the Grand Canyon. When I came out I knew that something about taking pictures of places I had been, and sharing them with others who may have not seen that place was a truly special experience. Years later when I went to South East Asia on a one way ticket I knew it was time to fully dive in. I now make it my goal to venture to the unknown places near and far and share them with others.

  • I was hoping a couple of you would be able to take a few minutes and look over my website. I just finished the reorganization and redesign and what I want to know is how intuitive is it to get ...
  • First off, I think its a great shot. I wrestle with the same question sometimes. To argue about what is 'acceptable sharpness' look at Steve McCurry's work. Many of his images are far from tack ...
  • Submitted a challenge entry Big Buddha Phuket
    A 45 meter high statue made mostly of marble. Its official name is Phra Puttamingmongkol Akenakkiri Buddha, but Big Buddha is easier to say.

  • I almost never get motion sick but I couldn't do more than about 25 seconds.

  • I agree with Skipper494 the background is pretty distracting. Maybe to minimize the background you could try a slight vignette to draw your eye down and keep it on the ducks. Or get a longer lens! :)
  • Excellent work Harald. Your new site loads very quickly and has a great clean look to it. I'm viewing it on an 11'' Macbook Air using Chrome. The only thing I might recommend looking into (it could ...
  • I take a Sigma 50mm f1.4 and a Canon 40mm Pancake f2.8 with my 6D for street shooting. The 50 is amazing for portraits and so very sharp wide open but the 40mm is less than half an inch thick. For ...
  • jbf I can't thank you enough for your honesty and kind comments. No insult at all!! I really appreciate the feedback. In my small town there are very few photographers to converse with to get any ...
  • So this is after less than 3 minutes in PS CC. I was playing with curves and most importantly added a sharping mask in PS. The preview I downloaded from above was a JPEG so its a little grainy ...
  • I could be wrong but are these raw converted to jpeg? If so, don't forget raw always needs processing to correct color, etc especially sharpness. My raw files out of my 6D with an L series lens ...
  • My favorite from the above is the one with a person walking separated by lines. What if while there you started a mini project "from above". Different patterns, textures, etc. Keep it up.
  • Hello all! I am a travel/landscape photographer and have just begun to venture into a new project involving people. My only experience shooting people is for senior pictures/weddings/engagements, ...

    Great use of shallow DOF and good color. You got your WB right! Good shot.
