When you have the appropriate filters, there’s always a temptation to do really long exposures over rushing water. In my experience though, it doesn’t really work to render the flow. Exposure times around 1s or less work best in my experience, and this is what I did here at Huka falls, probably the most impressive rush of water I’ve seen in my life to date.

In my (limited) landscape photography experience, I’ve always found that mountain sunrises or sunsets were the hardest to get right, because the contrast between the fiery sky (when you’re lucky) and the unlit mountain is so harsh. Sometimes though, it works as I think is the case here.
One of those lucky shots when the light hits your subject perfectly despite a looming storm…
One of my earliest attempts at « ghosting » silhouettes. Same session as Les Fantômes du Pont des Arts.
My first ever attempt at long-exposure. With torrents, « long » is a very relative terms since anything above a fraction of a second makes the whole stream go white.
Angelo Debarre is a unique artist and not at all a Django copycat, but on this picture he looked so much like Django that I had to process it ‘old style’.
My earliest concert shot. It’s the only shot from that whole concert worth retrieving, and though imperfect I have a fondness for it…
This is a black and white variant of Pink Sunrise. Interesting how the feeling it conveys is radically different, isn’t it?
As I was walking alongside a run path on the western short of Manhattan I stumbled upon these old wooden piles and thought that the old and new contrast with the Jersey City waterfront would be interesting…
I waited for nearly an hour on the river bank opposite the Bund in Shanghaï for the sun to be perfectly aligned with the two horns of that skyscraper. There are many pictures of the Dark Tower in Mordor with a similar look, hence the title.
