Gailen Mapes69,130Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Nikon Camera D-F - 15 of 31Note: 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 October 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting September 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 +2014-10-15 10:44:58125000

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 June 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting May 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 Mapes2014-06-15 10:56:4712410217

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 »

Rheintal - Petersberg - Limited Edition Local 13 Series

(Weiter unten für News in Deutsch und Luminanzmasken Tutorials!)
THE SHOT
This shot was taken last last year between Christmas and New Years. Prior to this morning, we had few really nice sunrises and I knew I had to go and shoot or I would potentially kill myself. Good thing is, the sun rises late here in the winter, so I didn't have to leave the house too early. I went to the "Petersberg", which hosts a pretty famous (and expensive) hotel and restaurant. I have been up there a few times before and knew the views weren't perfect so I asked the night watch if I could go up on their terrace to a few photos. He just smiled and said sure. At first I did not know what the smile meant, but it was pretty obvious once I was outside. We had winds gusting at 70+km/h. Not only was is freezing cold, but I... more »

THE SHOT
This shot was taken last last year between Christmas and New Years. Prior to this morning, we had few really nice sunrises and I knew I had to go and shoot or I would potentially kill myself. Good thing is, the sun rises late here in the winter, so I didn't have to leave the house too early. I went to the "Petersberg", which hosts a pretty famous (and expensive) hotel and restaurant. I have been up there a few times before and knew the views weren't perfect so I asked the night watch if I could go up on their terrace to a few photos. He just smiled and said sure. At first I did not know what the smile meant, but it was pretty obvious once I was outside. We had winds gusting at 70+km/h. Not only was is freezing cold, but I could also barely get a decently sharp shot. Even with a solid tripod and additional weight to the center column.

As we can see here I did get away with a couple good shots and love the early morning colors. I have said it before and I can only repeat myself, that I have rarely been disappointed by a sunrise but I have very often been disappointed by a sunset. 

Post-processing was in Photoshop using luminosity masking techniques. There are free tutorials on my website, showing how I apply these techniques and a 2 1/2 hour video tutorial series, which I did with Tony Kuyper as my partner in crime explaining luminosity masks and blending techniques.

It's been fantastic to work with Tony on this project and we are a bit proud to push this product out to the market and hope that people will find the video tutorials as well the TKActions panel in German helpful and that we can be a part of your creative workflow. Free tutorials and videos can be found here: http://www.andredistel.com/tutorials-luminanzmasken/

Since this post is mainly directed at the German speaking audience, the rest of this post will be in German language. Feel free to visit my Youtube Channel through the video below. There is also an English introduction spoken by Tony, that might interest you. If you are interested in the English speaking video series, simply visit Tony's website at www.goodlight.us or +Sean Bagshaw's website at www.outdoorexposurephoto.com. 

Deutsch: 
Tony Kuyper und ich haben nun auch die passenden Video Tutorials für die deutsche Version des TK Aktionen Bedienfeldes veröffentlicht. Die Zusammenarbeit mit Tony hat viel Spaß gemacht und wir sind auch ein bisschen stolz, dass Produkt nun endlich auf den Markt zu bringen und hoffen, dass es auch helfen wird die Nachbearbeitung auf ein neues Niveau zu heben und euren eigenen Stil zu finden. Weitere beispielvideos könnt ihr hier finden: http://www.andredistel.com/de/tutorials-luminanzmasken/

Die komplette Serie besteht aus 23 Videos, beginnend bei den Basics und geht bis hin bis zum Überblenden mehrerer Bilder mit Hilfe Luminanzmasken um einen professioniellen HDR / DRI Look zu bekommen. Alle Videos sind in 1920x1080p mit einer Gesamtlaufzeit von ca. 2 1/2 Stunden. Die Video Dateien liegen im MP4 Format vor, dass auf allen Computern laufen sollte. Player wie Quicktime oder VLC sollten damit keine Probleme haben. In dem Download Verzeichnis befinden ebenfalls die in den Video Tutorials verwendeten Bilder um die Aktionen am heimischen Computer nachzustellen. Für die Tutorials wurde Photoshop CC 2014 verwendet, die gleichen Aktionen und Bedienfelder sollten aber auch in Photoshop CS5 und CS6 zu finden sein.

Wenn ihr daran interessiert seid wie die Profis den Look ihrer Bilder hinbekommen, sind Luminanzmasken (Luminosity Masks) der Weg um dies zu erreichen. Keine andere Bearbeitungsmöglichkeit erlaubt diese Genauigkeit und kreative Freiheit im post-processing. 

Es wird die Erstellung verschiedener Masken erklärt, um zu verstehen wie die Aktionen funktionieren und was sie im Bild bewirken können. Burn und Dodge Ebenen werden erstellt und durch Masken widerrum gefiltert. Der berühmte Orton Lights Effekt wird ebenfalls an Beispielen dargestellt und gezeigt wo und wann man ihn am besten verwendet. Das Web Schärfen ist sicherlich einer der am einfachsten zu verwendeten Aktionen aber zugleich auch eine der wichtigsten für das Veröffentlichen im Internet. So bekommt man ganz einfach den klaren, krispen Look hin. Für Testimonials besucht auch einfach Tony's Website auf der bekannte Fotografen einen Beitrag dazu geschrieben habe, wie diese die Aktionen verwenden. Unter anderem sind dabei +Sarah Marino +Jarrod Castaing +Adrian Klein +Mark Metternich +Michael Breitung +Alister Benn +Chip Phillips +Andreas Resch, etc.

THE SHOT
This is the first time, that I am releasing a new image on 500px before all other platforms. This past summer, I had the opportunity to spend a few days for the first time in Manarola. I was out every night and every morning capturing this beautiful village. This 5 minute or 300 second exposure ended up being the most dramatic and best of them all. I was so excited to get this shot in. With the long exposure, sunset at the same time and a 10-stop B+W ND filter, this is what happened. 

Post-processing was in Photoshop using luminosity masking techniques. There are free tutorials on my website, showing how I apply these techniques and a 2 1/2 hour video tutorial series, which I did with Tony Kuyper as my partner in crime explaining luminosity masks and blending techniques. 

There are FREE TUTORIALS on my website in German and English on how I use the TK Actions in my post-processing workflow.

THE SHOT
This place has been on my bucket list for a long long time. We were fortunate enough to spend a few days here photographing this wonderful area of Cinque Terre. Although it's very touristy during the day, the crowds disappear when the sun has set and turns back into an old Italian village. 

TECHNIQUE
I took a total of five exposure for this image but ended up using only two. One for the sky due to blown out highlights and one for the rest of the image. I used the TKActions and luminosity masking techniques all the way through for the post processing. A typical editing process includes dodging, burning, levels and curves adjustments and sharpening. All adjustments are made through specific masks to only target very specific areas of the image. I basically never make global adjustments.

There are FREE TUTORIALS on my website in German and English on how I use the TK Actions in my post-processing workflow.

Viele der Anleitungen und Begriffe in den englischsprachigen Tutorials sind komplex und erfordern ein gutes Hintergrundwissen über die Funktionsweise in Photoshop sowie der englischen Sprache. Durch diese Kooperation hoffen wir die TK Actions einem bereiterem Publikum zugänglich zu machen. Viele Begriffe sind aus dem Englischen übersetzt worden, andere wurden auf Grund einer fehlenden Übersetzung beibehalten. Zur besseren Verständlichkeit werden die wenigen, übrig gebliebenen, englischen Begriffe jedoch in den Anleitungen ausführlich erklärt.

THE SHOT
The lavender fields in the provence have been on my bucket list for a while now. This summer, we finally decided to go and see what the fuzz is all about for ourselves. I can say, that whatever you see in this or all the other shots is real and it's really cool. To avoid the crowds (there are LOTS of tourists) get up early and drive out to the fields in Valensole. This is where this shot was taken. I saw one other photographer on that same morning and +Elia Locardi was just two fields over to shoot a very similar scene. Make sure you visit this year around mid-July, just before the lavender is harvested. 

TECHNIQUE
To get a shot like this in conditions like this is for once pure luck, but also some post-processing work. I took five exposures and ended up using four of them for the final image. I manually blended very carefully the lights and darks in to re-create the original scene. Luminosity Painting was my weapon of choice here, since my Nikon D800 can't reflect the entire dynamic range I wanted for this image. There are FREE TUTORIALS on my website in German and English on how I use the TK Actions in my post-processing workflow.

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 enough for the city to illuminate was just perfect. I am happy the way it turned out in the end. 

Technique
Shot with a Nikon D800 and a Nikkor 16-35 f/4 lens on a +Induro AT-114 Tripod. Processed in Adobe Photoshop CS6 using luminosity masks. If you want to learn more about this non-destructive image workflow processing techniques, you can visit my website. The tutorial for a single RAW image workflow is further down the page. In addition to this, +Sean Bagshaw  provides a great video series combined with the TK-Actions by +Tony Kuyper and his extensive written tutorials.

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 »

Otherwise no combination of multiple images. All of these shots were single exposures. I also switched locations frequently and found this one to be working the best. Least amount of cars, people and photographers.

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 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" rel="nofollow">goo.gl/73oejH</a>. I struggled with a few things, but once I got into 2:1 panoramic mode, it just clicked and I new, this would work great for this shot. 

I think it's a great second addition to my previous shot. Same place, but very different perspective. 

Modern Fairy Tales is as of today part of Limited Edition Local 13 Series, meaning I will make only 13 prints - ever. All numbered and signed. 

Hope you enjoy the view as much as I do .

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

Feel free to share, comment or +1 :)

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.

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, some people refer to the technique with blending via luminosity masks as “HDR”, others to “manual blending” or “extending the dynamic range”. All of these would the suitable and you will see me using probably all three of them in this tutorial. However, the blending part again only applies to some of my images. For others a single raw file and luminosity masks is all you need. In this first part of the tutorial I will focus on how I use luminosity masks on a single raw file to extend the dynamic range in a non-destructive way. In addition to this first tutorial and one single exposure, I am planning on releasing also the more complex blending of images via luminosity masks. There are many different ways, which lead to the same result, so I encourage you to experiment and use the one you, which works best for you...."

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. 

The Alaka'i Swamp trail leads through the highest swamp in the world and also one of the wettest spots on earth - Mt. Wai'ale'ale. This is actually as close as you can get on official trails. The fog constantly rolls in and out leaving you damp wet all the way through. The immense amount of water and moisture up there gives you every imaginable shade of green and radiating colors especially in the local fern. But beware, the fern here is dangerous it only grows at the edge of cliffs. So, don't even think about to walk in the fern to pee. It might just as well be your last time. 

The path we walked on was muddy, really muddy. Especially the first part of the trail. The red dirt just sticks to your cloth and shoes. The more you hike into the swamp, the red dirt path is eventually replaced by boardwalks. In some areas is seems they have not been maintained for a long time as they slippery and broken. It's especially dangerous when you in the swamp itself. Nothing grows out there that's more than 5 feet tall.

In regards to the weather, it's really a gamble. You never know what you gonna get up there. Only one thing is certain - you will leave this trail stunned and will have a hard time finding something similar.

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.

Much of the translation of my website is done and most pages are now available in English and German language. I'll keep adding German to other pages, as I find time to do so. In the meantime, feel free to check my website for any typos or other errors :).

I have also added further access to my Galleries, which are now accessible by either Country, Theme or Edition Size, so that every customer can choose, what's most important to him.

I have started to work with +PhotoShelter now for 7 months and I can truly say, that it has already paid off. The price you pay seems high, but it creates so much less work for me.

The translation of my website is almost complete. All main pages, have been translated other will follow over time.

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.

- I have added a considerable amount of stock photography to my website through wonderful people at +PhotoShelter  (who also helped my out solving that Google Chrome SSL issue). Checkout, Cart, Sign-up, etc. all working well now. 

- Stock Photos are mainly aerial photography from Kaua'i. Such an amazing time in the air photographing lots of inaccessible land and countless waterfalls. More on the stock photos in a separate blog post later. 

- Many more new small things. I have been working on my SEO and I am getting more traffic again and again. Still lots of work to do and my photos to process, but I am getting there :)

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 »

----------------------------

Es ist nicht so einfach ein wirklich gutes Foto von den Wailua Falls zu machen. Obwohl die Fälle fast direkt an der Straße liegen muss das Wetter mitspielen. Wir mussten ein paar mal hierher zurückkehren um die perfekten Bedingungen vorzufinden. Leicht bewölkt, wenig Wind um Wasserspritzer von den Fällen zu vermeiden und vor allem KEIN Regen. Kauai wird auch die "Garden Island" genannt. Alles ist saftig grün und das Wetter ist oftmals unvorhersehbar. 

Mit dem Release von diesem Bild, habe ich auch eine neue Seite auf meiner Website erstellt die Details von meinen Bilder zeigt. 

Ich weiß wie schwierig es sein kann Kunst online zu kaufen. Die Qualität der Arbeit ist oftmals nur schwer einzuschätzen, weshalb ich eine Seite geschaffen habe, die diesem hoffentlich ein bisschen abhilfe schafft und einen detaillierten Ausschnitt von dem Bild Wailua Falls zeigt. Die Seite könnt ihr hier finden: http://www.andredistel.com/print-quality/

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.

Als ihr nach Fotos von Hawaii gefragt habt, ist das sicherlich nicht dass, was ihr erwartet habt oder? Wir sind den gesamten Hana Highway gefahren und sind der Meinung, dass er etwas überbewertet wird. Er hat schöne Ecken, fanden aber das der Südosten von Maui, der übrigens fast nirgendwo erwähnt wird, sehr unterbewertet ist. Das Foto ist während des Sonnenuntergangs hinter uns entschanden auf einem sehr einsamen Stück zwischen Hana und Kahului.

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

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  

For more regular updates like my Facebook Page at https://www.facebook.com/AndreDistelPhotography 

Gear
Nikon D800
Nikon 70-200 f/4 at 70mm and various apertures
+Induro Tripods AT-114
Vanguard SBH-250

Techniques
I took about 7 exposures and ended up using 3 of them. One for the water, one for the sky and one for the Opera House. To recreate the original scene I used luminance masks in PS6 and adjusted the contrast accordingly. Processed on the flight from Sydney to Bangkok. Thanks to +Sean Bagshaw for his great Luminosity Masks and Extending Dynamic Range tutorials :-)

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.

Print Sales
Going well...Just sold another Limited Edition Print in 36"x24" (90x60cm) as acrylic face mount of this image. Thanks... more »

Print Sales
Going well...Just sold another Limited Edition Print in 36"x24" (90x60cm) as acrylic face mount of this image. Thanks +PhotoShelter for hosting my images . It's a great help. And also again to +Sean Bagshaw of whom I learned a lot! And to Singapore Airlines for providing the best flying experience and customer service. 

If you wish to get your copy just visit http://andredistel.photoshelter.com/gallery-image/Limited-Edition-Prints/G0000ANLAamgP2Lw/I0000.vGq6gFdIKI

Technique
I managed to manually blend four different exposures, using luminance mask and hand-made masks, to get the perfect dynamic range. One for the foreground and water, one for the extreme highlights in the foreground, one as the main image with all the beams and one with slightly stronger green beams due to the length of the exposure. It worked out perfectly and kept the original scene intact. I did not add or remove anything from the original scene. 

Cheers,
André

*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 .

Check out the great portfolio of +koveh tavakkol (sorry Koveh, I can't seem to tag you from my iphone).. My daily share continues for another couple of days until I will hold the D800 in my hands. Nikon 16-35 and 70-200 f/4 have already arrived.

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.___Check out the great portfolio of +koveh tavakkol (sorry Koveh, I can't seem to tag you from my iphone)..

Great shot by +Derek Kind. my sharing for this week continues as I am still cameraless. However, my new Nikon 16-35 f/4 arrived today along with the 70-200 f/4. the later one needs to go back though. Got of an Amazon Warehouse deal and the rear element of the lens is scratched :(. Ordered the new version today, and it was just a few bucks more than used...

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. :-)

Maya Entrance at Dawn

Maya Resort, Ubud, Bali, Indonesia
NIKON D600 + 16.0-35.0 mm f/4.0 @ 16 mm, 0.6 sec at f/16, ISO 100

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 »

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. Now, I am making another leap in my photography and have the D800 on order with a couple of new FX lenses, which should serve me well over the next two years . So, for the next 2-3 weeks, I am without a camera but look forward to a new challenge with the incredible demanding D800.

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.

Anyone interested in new photography gear? I am thinking about selling part of my photography gear to eventually focus on full frame only for my landscape work.

Anyone interested in the following:
Nikon D7000 (22 months old)
Nikon 17-55mm f/2.8
Tokina 11-16mm f/2.8 (5 months old)

These are the best lenses currently available for DX Format. Send me a message if you are interested. 

I will be in Canada shortly just in case one of my Canadian friends is interested .

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).

To get this shot I used my

Imported into Lightroom 4 with basic global adjustments

The Great Wall - China - Open Edition Series


The Shot
Finally getting around to look more into some of my images from China earlier this year. 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. We then hiked from there for about 8 hrs towards the more touristy parts at Mutianyu. At the very end of the stretch is where our hike ended. This is the last part of an amazing trek.

Technical Stuff:
Nikon D7000
Nikon 17-55mm f/2.8
+Induro AT-114
Vanguard SBH-250 ballhead
1 Exposure only
Global adjustments in Lightroom 4
Fine-tune with Tony Kuyper Photography and Sean Bagshaw TK-Actions in PS6 with custom luminosity masks
Original Filesize: 644 MB

I have started to plan our next trip to Hawaii later this year. Kauai, Maui and Oahu are on the list. It's going to be epic with lots of shooting time. Before going to Hawaii, I will be in Belarus, Poland, Russia, Thailand, Australia, Czech, Hungary, Germany and maybe a few other countries in between. Anything in particular you want me to shoot while I am there? Let me know and I see what I can do.

Also thanks +Landscape Photography ART for including me in your awesome cirlce of even more awesome photog :)

My website www.andredistel.com has just undergone a complete re-design and I have taken a more professional approach, especially to the shopping experience on my website. Now working with +PhotoShelter is a breeze and works well. Just be aware, when using the Checkout or Sign-in Page with Google Chrome browser, the styles will break down and the site looks messy. I hope to be able to resolve this quickly. You can buy my Open Edition Series, Limited Edition Series as well as Stock Images from my intensive travels directly from the website as download (RM) or print.

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).

Be advised that Google Chrome may cause a breakdown in styles during the checkout, which has to do with Google's security feature in Chrome browser. However, everything works perfectly fine. All other browsers should work pretty well. 

To get this shot I used my Nikon D7000, 17-55mm f/2.8 lens, +Induro  AT-114 and Vanguard SBH-250 


Processing
Imported into Lightroom 4 with basic global adjustments
Fine-tuning in PS6 using various Luminosity Masks (check out Sean Bagshaws Video Tutorial for more information on how to use Luminosity Masks)

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

Crop view of Shanghai Downtown Skyline

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 »

What's the name of this lake again?

The Shot
Anyone remember the name of this lake?

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.
