Gailen Mapes66,154Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Nikon Camera  D-F - 15 of 30Note: These circles are sorted by camera type and last name. They are split to not exceed 200 members.           These circles are photographers that I admire. They have "more photos, less spam."  There have been many additions and a few drops (mostly for spam or inactivity).       Be sure to get all of the circles. Share! If you miss any of the circles they can be found at: +Gailen Mapes and scroll back to July 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting June 1st.)  You can also use the #handpickedcircles hash tag and sort by "recent."I am hard up against the 5000 limit. From here on, I am going to have to become rather more strict about the "spam rules." Essentially if I have to go back more than a screen on your profile before I hit original material, there is a good chance that I may drop you from the circles. Of course there will be mitigating factors...Because of the way that Google no longer presents every person who adds me to their circles to me it is quite possible that I have missed some pretty good photographers.  If I am following you, chances are that you are already in one of these circles or in my "check later" circle.  If you think you have been missed, tag a comment on one of these posts and I will check your profile out for inclusion.  Guidelines for inclusion can be found at:   https://plus.google.com/u/0/103752943025677384806/about#circleshare #circlesharing #circleoftheday   #sharedcircles   #sharedcircle #sharedpubliccircles   #fullcircleshare #addmetoyourcircles #pixelworld   #pixelworldcircle #circleoftheday #bestsharedcircle   #thebestcirclesongoogle #thebestcircle             #handpickedcircles             Note: the hash tag #handpickedcircles  should only be used to refer to these circles and other circles created by +2014-07-15 11:00:561201236CC G+

This is version VI, bigger, (actually, a little smaller, I checked and deleted more inactives than I added actives) better, faster, wilder. (ha) It's the only circle I share, and it's a good one.(and if you could, please look at my art and photography, that's why I do this - scroll down, I have lots of new and old good things)Thanks to everyone who shared me, and looked and commented on my photography and art.Special kudos out to those who not only share, but post there own good things.Peace.

Gailen Mapes62,654Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Nikon Camera  D-F - 15 of 30Note: These circles are sorted by camera type and last name. They are split to not exceed 200 members.           These circles are photographers that I admire. They have "more photos, less spam."  There have been many additions and a few drops (mostly for spam or inactivity).       Be sure to get all of the circles. Share! If you miss any of the circles they can be found at: +Gailen Mapes and scroll back to April 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting March 1st.)  You can also use the #handpickedcircles hash tag.I am hard up against the 5000 limit. From here on, I am going to have to become rather more strict about the "spam rules." Essentially if I have to go back more than a screen on your profile before I hit original material, there is a good chance that I may drop you from the circles. Of course there will be mitigating factors...Because of the way that Google no longer presents every person who adds me to their circles to me it is quite possible that I have missed some pretty good photographers.  If I am following you, chances are that you are already in one of these circles or in my "check later" circle.  If you think you have been missed, tag a comment on one of these posts and I will check your profile out for inclusion.  Guidelines for inclusion can be found at:   https://plus.google.com/u/0/103752943025677384806/about#circleshare #circlesharing #circleoftheday   #sharedcircles   #sharedcircle #sharedpubliccircles   #fullcircleshare #addmetoyourcircles #pixelworld   #pixelworldcircle #circleoftheday #bestsharedcircle   #thebestcirclesongoogle #thebestcircle             #handpickedcircles             Note: the hash tag #handpickedcircles  should only be used to refer to these circles and other circles created by +Gailen Mapes2014-04-15 14:02:311177110CC G+

Sydney Splendor - Sydney, Australia - Limited Edition Series


The Shot
This is a manual exposure blend from 4 individual images. One for the sky above the bridge, one for the water, one for the city and one for the sun. All just taken seconds apart with different settings. I used Luminosity Masking Techniques by +Tony Kuyper and +Sean Bagshaw  to blend the exposures and make use of a non-destructive workflow. Ever since I started using the luminance masks, my file size has gone up and exceeds most of the time 1GB. As I don't take that many images, it's not a big problem for me. I am in the quality of the quantity department of photographers. 

Technical Stuff:
Nikon D7000
Nikon 17-55mm f/2.8
+Induro AT-114
Vanguard SBH-250 ballhead
4 Exposures
Global adjustments in Lightroom 4

Cherry Blossom Tunnel - Bonn, Germany - Limited Edition Local 13 Series

We were out with a bunch of photographers +Lars Vonderschmitt +Elmar Schrage +Marcus Schommler +Alessio Fangano and a couple more last weekend shooting the amazing cherry blossom trees in Bonn. It only lasts 2-3 weeks and this was captured right at their peak. 

To avoid distortion in the image but still be able to capture the tunnel, I created four horizontal exposures and merged those into a vertical image. This is a so-called "vertorama" - a vertical panorama . Due to the stacking of the images, the photo has nasty 82 Megapixel and accounts for 2.5 GB on my hard drive! The amount of detail in this shot is incredible and certainly made for creating big-ass prints .

Otherwise no combination of multiple images. All of these shots were single exposures. I also switched locationsfreq... more »

Paris - Limited Edition Platinum 25 Series

I just a really nice long article but Google somehow did not allow me to post it. Then by accident I want back to the previous site and all was gone :-(. 

I have been very busy the last few weeks and months with many new projects, which allowed only little time for personal projects such as this one. I had a major publication in the Extraordinary Vision magazine published for free on iTunes about the image processing techniques using luminosity masks. I also landed a few new clients such as +Red Bull and other for my images.

Anyhow, this shot obviously taken in Paris is one I really wanted to get in while I was there. We drove to Paris and arrived late afternoon. After checking in, we headed straight for the Montparnasse tower to witness what turned out a stunning sunset. The timing between enough light in the sky and dark... more »

Modern Fairy Tales - Königswinter, Germany - Limited Edition Local 13 Series

As you may have noticed, I have been a bit busy the last few days and had no time to work on any new photos. So I took some time tonight and finally got around to finalize a photo, which I have been working on for quite a while. 

We were waiting out there for about an hour for the perfect light to come up. With no shots taken, I almost called it a day, when just before the sun set, the last soft glow hit the trees and castle. It latest for about 2 minutes and I was glad, I had everything set up already. I fired a few brackets away and come back home with what I knew already would be some great shots to process later.

It is a "remake" of one of my all-time favorites on Flickr and my Website <a href="http://goo.gl/73oejH"r... more »

Pacific Dream - Limited Edition Gold 100 Series 

FREE Luminosity Masks Tutorial - Read below for more information

The Shot & Technique
Shot on the beautiful north shore of Oahu, the home of the very talented +Dallas Nagata White. The conditions were good with the last remaining sunlight also hitting the shoreline. I was very fortunate to be able to shoot at this breathtaking location in Oahu. With only 2 days to spare on this island, we scouted for the best possible locations. The time of day is not what photographers refer to as the Golden Hour of photography, but who cares :). The photo turned out pretty well with a challenging processing technique. I hand-blended four different exposures with custom masks to reflect the true scene and what the camera could not do.

Reaching for the Stars - Limited Edition Print - Singapore

Feel free to share, comment or +1 :)

Thanks to +Jarrod Castaing for welcoming me in your Gallery in Sydney. If you have the chance, go and check it out. Some amazing prints there.

The Shot
As I am sitting in Singapore at the moment it only seems fitting to release a new limited edition print. I worked on this image during an 8 hour flight from Sydney, Australia. 

The laser show at the Marina Bay Sands lasts pretty much 12 minutes. Timing is everything and the exposure cannot be too long as the beams constantly move around. Having seen the show a few times, the end is the most important part, as the beams all come back on again at the same time. It is an extremely tricky shot, but everything worked in my favor that night

A Slice of Time - Moselschleife, Germany

News
I have been away for a while from G+ due to time constrains at work and focusing more on my Facebook page at www.facebook.com/AndreDistelPhotography. I have also printed a lot more images in the last few weeks through +theprintspace for an upcoming exhibition.

The Shot
This is actually in older shot, taken about 12 months ago or only about an hours drive from our house. It took me a few attempts to get it right. No cars making turns or stopping while driving around and at the same time not over- oder underexposing the entire scene. The light trail in the centre was a funny coincidence. The official road ends where the light trail stops, so whoever drove there had to turn around. Add some extra spice to the scene.

Part 1 is done!

I just published a blog post earlier today about working with luminosity masks in Photoshop and how I process my photos. It does require a basic understanding of Photoshop, masks and layers but I think it gives a great insight in my processing techniques.

Feel free to share the link!

Here is a short excerpt from the full blog post:

"A while ago I wrote a tutorial about my Lightroom 4 Landscape Workflow. While this still applies to a good part of my images, and especially those who are sold as stock photos on my website, using luminosity masks has been a game changer for me in many aspects. I am now not limited to the approach and editing capabilities of Lightroom and my basic photoshop masking techniques, which were cumbersome and very time consuming, but can use the full power of Photoshop in a new and fully non-destructive workflow. Now,... more »

The island of Kauai is truly from another world. We did quite a few hikes but none was like the Pihea Trail to Alaka'i Swamp. The trail leads through some of the most otherworldly places you could ever imagine and I believe this to be the best trail on Kauai and it also ranks somewhere at the very top of every trail (and we have hiked many) we have ever hiked.

It was a short walk to capture this shot. The building across on the pier is the hotel I stayed at in Sydney. I actually wanted to get a different shot, one that I saw in the hotel lobby, but later found out to be photoshopped. The angle the images was taken on is impossible to reach, except you are standing right in the water. Anyhow, I like how the evening and colors played out on this one with some dramatic cloud coverage over the harbor area. One more... more »

Every Moment - Limited Edition Platinum 25 Series

The Shot & News
I returned with a few good shots from Joshua Tree National Park recently, but now wish I could have spent more time there. So much to see and do in an extraordinary landscape environment. This image is the result of four different exposures I took. After the import into Lightroom, I started to process them in Photoshop by aligning all four and then manually blending the image, with advanced custom off-center mid-tone masks and correcting contrast accordingly. A technique I learned by studying +Tony Kuyper and +Sean Bagshaw luminosity masking tutorials. A process, that has stepped up photography to another level. I am contemplating about writing a tutorial in English and German for my blog about using this technique on a few examples. There are not too many, at least in Germany, who teach or provide detailsa... more »

Anini Beach - Kauai, HI, USA - Limited Edition Print (read below for Technique!)

The Shot & News 
Anini Beach Park is a wonderful stretch of sand on the North Shore of Kauai. It's a bit away from the main road, but usually fairly empty. I was already running out of time, as the sun was setting and tried to find the perfect composition. When I saw the boat about a hundred meters from where I parked, I ran towards it and knew exactly how I wanted it to set up. The timing was perfect, as the sky just started to explode in the background. Kauai has truly main options for photography and I can't wait to go back some time, if I ever get the chance. Coming from Europe, it is pretty much the other end of the world.

Wailua Falls - Kauai, HI, USA - Limited Edition Print

The Shot & News
It is difficult to get a good shot of the Wailua Falls. Although they are easily accessible you have to lucky with weather. We had to return here a couple of times to find the best conditions. Slightly overcast sky, little wind to avoid the spray from the falls and most of all NO rain. Kauai is also called the Garden Island. Everything is lush and green and the weather is often unpredictable. 

With the release of this image I have also created a new page on my website showing the detail in my photos.

I know how difficult it can be to buy art online. Judging the quality of the work is difficult and this is why I have created a dedicated page to show some finer detail and have chosen this image to represent the amount of detail in my photos. You can find this page here:h... more »

Burning Skies over Hanalei Bay - Kauai, HI, USA - Limited Edition Print


The Shot & News
I just returned from a three week trip to the US. 2 1/2 weeks was spent in Hawaii, mostly on the islands of Kauai and Maui. We stayed at the North Shore of Kauai, due to the insane amount of photo opps and the incredible landscape that surrounds you up there. It is rather isolated with only a few tourists. Most resorts are on the dry and hot south side of the island.

It took me a few attempts to capture Hanalei Bay, which has become one of my favorite spots in the world, the way I wanted it. I ventured out for several sunsets and sunrises until I found the perfect conditions. The sky was simply burning for a few minutes, creating wonderful reflections in the water and sand. Strong contrast with the mountains only lit up halfway and the dark clouds moving out on the right... more »

Rolling Hills of Maui - Limited Edition Print

I have started this a while ago on Facebook and will try to follow through with this on Google+ and my website. Posting in English and German language. I am bilingual, so why not make use of it :-)

The Shot
When you were asking for photos of Hawaii this is not what you necessarily expected, is it? We drove the entire Hana Highway and thought it was a bit overrated. There are some pretty sights on the way but we found that the Southeastern side of Maui is mentioned nowhere and is totally underrated. This was taken during sunset time on a very lonely stretch from Hana all the way back through southeastern Maui.

Hidden Castle - Bonn, Germany - Open Edition Print

The Shot
I took this shot a few weeks ago and was one of the first serious shots with the D800 in combination with the Nikon 70-200 f/4. What a beautiful and sharp lens that is. I instantly fell in love with it and can't stop using it. I think you will see more telephoto landscape photos in the near future. 

This mountain area is right across from our house. Just walking down to the river and taking the shot. Luckily I can decide a few minutes prior if it's worthwhile visiting or not, depending on the light. On that particular it was definitely worth it and the last rays of sunshine hit the trees and just made the whole variety of greens pop. Of course the castle, tucked away in the tree is the highlight of this shot. It's in perfect condition and can be visited by climbing up the mountain from the left.... more »

The Opera - Syndey, Australia - No edition assigned yet

Hey +Keith McInnes and +Michael Sutton this is what you guys missed out on last week ;-).

The Shot
Taken just about a week ago in Sydney from Mrs. Macquarie's Chair. The sunset light was perfect and I was playing with different compositions and techniques until I found what I wanted. With all the Opera shots I have by now, I could open a Syndey Opera Gallery alone.

Even though I did not have many nights to shoot the conditions were once again perfect on the night that I went out. Most days and especially the mornings were flat and boring. I realized how lucky I was when I captured these last year http://goo.gl/2ePj4m

Marina Bay Sands - Singapore - Limited Edition Print

News
In my recent Facebook post I wrote, that I might be back sooner than you think, Singapore. Well, no, I won't. When Thai Airways cancelled my flight to SYD, I was on the verge again to book with Singapore Airlines, which would have included a layover in SIN. I got the booking confirmation today from Thai for another flight and will have a short layover in Bangkok instead. Only a couple hours but the perfect time of day at around 8pm. So, I'll try to venture out of the airport for a couple hours before my connecting flight back to Europe. Has anyone been to Bangkok and is it easy to get around? There seems to be a railway system to the city, I think.

*Starry Skies" - Plattsville, ON, Canada - 1st attempt test shot

The Shot & News
Ventured out last night on my first attempt to capture the stars. I haven't had the chance yet to put my D800 to work, so I had to come up with something to test its apparently amazing ISO capabilities. Conditions were far from good with an almost full moon and lots of ambient light around. It was lots of fun though and I hope that I can do better and more of it in the future. I only forgot one total beginner mistake. I did not turn off the VR on the lens! So don't look to close, the trees will look blurry. It doesn't matter that much in the sky though. What you can see here is actually the Milky Way. Will do better next time - promise .

The Crown

Welcome to Sky Pond, a location I have wanted to get into for a while now. I doubt many of you have seen any photos from here, or believe that this is in fact a high alpine lake tucked here in the Rockies. Despite the beauty of this location, the 10 mile round trip hike with 3000 foot elevation gain tends to scare a lot of photographers away. We started our hike in at 3am in order to make it up to the lake by sunrise, and at one point literally had to hike up a steep waterfall section in the dark. A beautiful lake and one of the many beautiful locations here in Colorado.

Balance

Hverfjall, Iceland

I walked up to the rim of this giant crater near lake Mývatn a couple of times - once in the day and once at night. It was cool up here because of the light blanket of snow covering the rocks, giving the place a more fantastical appearance. Another cool thing are the cairns that people have built on Hverfjall - some of them seem to defy gravity. :-)

The entrance to the Maya Ubud Resort in Bali is very grand - when arriving at night as we did it's lined with small accent lights as the road snakes it's way through lush manicured gardens towards the main lobby building and once there we have a pool with lights and candles that we walk across to reach the lobby

I was a little late for this one - as the sun had already risen and the sky was getting a bit too bright

*Bryce Canyon" - UT, USA 2010 - Open Edition Series


The Shot & News
Much has happened in the last three years. This photo was taken with the Nikon D60 back then. I had about 9 months of very limited DSLR experience back then but a lot of fun exploring my camera and various techniques. I made a step up to the D7000 in October of 2011 and not only my technique had improved but also my picture quality. I had the best lenses available for the DX Format and it has served me well over the last couple of years. I learned to manually blend and post process in LR4 and PS with luminance masking techniques and filters but have felt recently that I have reached the maximum potential of the D7000 for my style of work. I was able to create beautiful large prints and even a National Geographic Cover Shot with my beloved Nikon and print sales have gone up inside and outside of Germany.... more »

Lavender Bay - Sydney, Australia - Open Edition Series


Sorry to the previous post, I accidentially only shared with those mentioned in the post. Now it should work :)

The Shot
Inspired by a scene from +Ken Duncan Gallery  as seen in his gallery in Sydney. Being only my second time in Sydney, I had no idea that Lavender Bay even exists. It is fairly easy to reach though from the main ferry terminal at the harbor. 

I don't expect this shot to take off as much as my last one did, but hey, it doesn't really matter that much :). I have a few more shots from this location with various angles but there was this dog always running into my photos. Cute dog though, but not really helping to achieve my goal.

Sydney Splendor - Sydney, Australia - Limited Edition Series


The Shot
This is a manual exposure blend from 4 individual images. One for the sky above the bridge, one for the water, one for the city and one for the sun. All just taken seconds apart with different settings. I used Luminosity Masking Techniques by +Tony Kuyper and +Sean Bagshaw  to blend the exposures and make use of a non-destructive workflow. Ever since I started using the luminance masks, my file size has gone up and exceeds most of the time 1GB. As I don't take that many images, it's not a big problem for me. I am in the quality of the quantity department of photographers.

Singapore Supertrees - Singapore - Limited Edition Series Print


What better place to take photos than Singapore? And what to photograph if you have only one night to take photos? Of course, the Supertrees.

The Shot
At the time I took this shot, the Supertrees were fairly new and they still are. It was one of the first nights with the Supertree Grove Music Light Show, which was truly amazing. It felt like being in the middle of Avatar and I just waited for the trees to literally move around. Well, that didn't happen of course but still, check them out when you are there. They are located in the Gardens by the Bay behind the Marina Bay Sands (MBS).

I hired a local private guide to take me out to the more remote areas of the wall with the original parts from the Ming Dynasty.

Old Shanghai - Shanghai, China - Open Edition Print

I will be back in Australia shortly. Any ideas what to photograph besides the obvious Opera House and Harbour Bridge?

The Shot
I had a few lucky clear nights in Shanghai, which is rather unusual. Usually the skyline is dominated by heavy smog, which makes taking photos a lot harder. This photo was taken on the Pudong side of Shanghai. I was amazed to see Colonial style buildings in Shanghai, but they make a great contrast to the new and fancy buildings in the background. 

The quality of the image might appear very low on the web, as I had to download it from Facebook (currently not at my own computer).

Mysterious Mornings - Siebengebierge, Bonn, Germany - Open Edition


The Shot
I got up at 3:45 am to be on top of the Mountain by about 4:45am. There is a Behind-the-Scenes shot on my Facebook Page from May 25 with the full moon bright and early. This photo was taken at about 5:25 in the morning when the fog finally started to move in from the North through the Siebengebierge. The long exposure 25sec allowed from some cool cloud movement. The fog layer on the rhine river behind the mountain was unbelievably thick that morning.

If you don't want to get up that early, you can still buy a print of this surreal morning in Bonn :)

To get this shot I used my Nikon D7000, 17-55mm f/2.8 lens, LEE Filters 0.9 GND hard, Induro Pro Tripods, Monopods & Heads AT-114 and Vanguard SBH-250

Ever wondered about the quality of my images and prints. Here's a great example of a 100% crop view screenshot of the image posted two days ago. Amazing detail and clarity. I am still astonished of the quality of my Nikon 17-55mm f/2.8 in combination with the D7000.

Shanghai Downtown Skyline - Open Edition Print - Shanghai, China 

100 Megapixel in its original version - Read below for more information

The Shot
I recently had the opportunity to spend about two weeks in China. The first week I was up in Beijing and visited very remote parts of the Great Wall, which are not accessible to the public and a lot of different places in and around Beijing. The second week, I was in Shanghai on official business but found a couple quite evenings to go out and shoot. The photo from Shanghai is a 100 megapixel shot, carefully stitched together from multiple photos. I guess light pollution can be good for one thing in photography - decrease your shutter time :). It still took me about 1 hour to compose and get the shot together with 15-20 sec exposures per shot and the same time for in camera noise reduction to remove any hot or dead... more »

I took this shot about three years ago in the Canadian Rockies. It must have been somewhere between Banff and the Columbia Icefield. I keep thinking this is Bow Lake, but I am really not sure. 

I re-processed this one recently using Luminosity Masks in Photoshop and it can work wonders. They don't work with every photo, but I'll try to re-edit some older shots that I have never published before with new skills. 

After doing home renovations all day yesterday again (increase the height of our kitchen counter by 12mm (1/2") to fit our washing machine underneath) it is good to return to work on my photos, which is one of the most relaxing and enjoyable things.

The Shot
We visited Machu Picchu in October of 2011 and only had one full day at the site. We did not join a tour but arranged everything ourselves to stay on a lower budget while traveling. It was an awesome experience, probably a place, where we won't have to the opportunity to return to. We took taxis and collectivos once we arrived in Cuzco and pushed all the way to Aguas Calientes in one day from Lima. It was tough a took an entire day. With only a few hours to sleep we got up again at 4am to catch an early breakfastand... more »

Cherry Blossoms Bonn - Kirschblütenbäume in Bonn


Featured Photographers
I strongly believe in supporting other photographers as well through this. Check out the following amazing portfolios: +QT Luong +Ivan Makarov (and the PlusOneCollection) +Gary Crabbe 


The Shot
The cherry blossoms have arrived in Germany. In Bonn to be exact and this street (Heerstrasse) is simply awesome. The entire street is covered in Cherry Blossoms for the next week or so - that's how long they last and it felt like every single photographer was out there and shooting last night. It was of a test run for to see how it goes and it proved to be more difficult than expected. To a larger degree thanks to incoming traffic, which caused my tripod to be removed every few seconds and people simply walking and standing in front of your lens, which can be annoying attime... more »

I strongly believe in supporting other photographers as well through this. Check out the following amazing portfolios: +Sean Bagshaw (he provides some amazing tutorials and artwork) +Michael Breitung (stay tuned for this updates from an upcoming trip to the US) +Michael Bonocore (for being one of the most active users of social media - at least that's what it feels like ;))


The Shot
I don't shot many HDR's - at least not in the sense of 3rd party software automated blending. I find that only a very few cases this works really well - it's probably just not my style. I work more commenly with what is known is Luminosity Masks and Layers in Photoshop. But even that onlyap... more »

Photography in the Atacama Desert

Live Giving Waters - Atacama Desert, Chile - Open Edition


Featured Photographers
I strongly believe in supporting other photographers as well through this. Check out the following amazing portfolios: +Elia Locardi  +Ken Kaminesky (they will be shooting together in Italy shortly) +Dave Morrow (for some really cool star photography)


The Shot
Colorful layers of rock and a little bit of water, make this one of the most unlivable places on earth. Some places in the Atacama Desert have never seen a raindrop of water. Yet it does sustain certain forms of life, such as the beautiful and very shy Vicunas. Look closely to spot them at the bottom of the frame. They give you a sense of scale of the backdrop. The different layers of colors give some great contrast. For some reason, I really love this shot,pr... more »

The Big Splash - Coogee Beach, Australia - Open Edition

The Shot
Coogee Beach in Australia is a wonderful beach for photography. Luckily "The Big Splash" happened the night before, leaving great puddles and reflections for the next day to photograph. Taken along the southern Sydney coastal region the cliffs provide great photographic opportunities. The fence is a great leading line, coupled with a GND (gradient neutral density) to balance the bright sky and the foreground.

The Rocks - Sydney Landscape Photography - Open Edition

The Shot
Sydney is one of the most photogenic cities I have ever seen. Endless photo opps. The building you see here is the Hilton Hotel right down at the harbor area. 

Ever wondered how to get the starbursts like the ones on the bridge? Set your aperture to f/16, adjust shutter speed and wait.

"Supertrees" - Singapore - Limited Edition Print Sale

The Shot
The Supertrees in Singapore are one of the most amazing things I have ever seen. Even though they are of course fake trees, they are hugely inspiring to me and reminded me of "Home Tree". They have only been up for a few months now and put on a spectacular show. Brand new is not only that they light up but also the Supertree Show. I captured this photo during the show, when all kinds of different colors pop up. The long exposure helped in capturing a huge variety of the color array. I also used a small aperture (f/16) to get these awesome lights to look the way they are on the photo. What is really difficult though is to find a decent angle. I arrived about 2 hours prior to sunset to walk around and to try various vantage points and finally settled on a few different ones. However, this remains... more »

"Temple of Heavens" - Beijing, China

Head over to my new Facebook Page and say hi! - http://www.facebook.com/AndreDistelPhotography

AND

visit my new website at www.andredistel.com :)


The Shot
I was desperately looking for my watermark, but can't find it. Ever since Lightroom crashed on me, it's gone...I guess I have to make a new one.

I really wanted to get this shot. I was there way to early and waited patiently for 2 hrs for the crowds to disappear. This place is usually flooded with people. I was literally the last one to leave this place after the Chinese guards threw me out :). I think it was worth it.

The Temple of Heavens is a fantastic place and a must-see when you have the chance to travel to Beijing. 

Currently working on new releases whenever I have the time and will hopefully... more »
