Finding new and interesting viewpoints for your local photography can often be a difficult task. After a while, if you are a regular photographer, you will exhaust all of the obvious locations in the local vicinity.
I've visited the island of Majorca most years since I was about 7 years old. I reckon I've been there about 28 times now and still love the place. One of the great features is the abundance of old towns and villages with their picturesque narrow streets and wall climbing flowers. I chose to capture these streets using my Samyang 8mm Fisheye lens as I really like the warped effect it give the walls on either side of the frame and also it's ability to capture the scene in 180 degrees.
I've visited the island of Majorca most years since I was about 7 years old. I reckon I've been there about 28 times now and still love the place. Below are some images from a very early morning in Puerto Pollensa in the north east of the island. There was still a sea fog in the distance and the sun was just rising above the hills in the distance.
Spring is here, lot's of things are changing in the world and in the digital plane too. FPR has been taken back to basics to improve performance and make everything a bit simpler for it's lovely readers! :)
I've recently been reworking a few shots I took in London last year. I have amended the processing slightly to reduce noise and improve clarity. All images processed through Photomatix and Photoshop. Full gallery on Google+
I took a trip to Sandbanks in Dorset yesterday. I spent about 6 hours around the coastline, capturing the coastal tides ageing structures along the shoreline. The shots in this gallery are a mixture of HDR and normal, non bracketed photos. Lenses used were 17-70mm SIgnma, 5omm Canon and 8mm Samyang Fisheye.
I can't believe it's snowing in March in the UK! Made my mind up to venture out this morning, come what may weather wise. I visited a few local spots and captured just a couple of contrasting images....10 Stop long exposure and an HDR.
