I took the image with my Nikon P7800 compact camera during a photo walk one evening while my wife and I were in Hobart, Tasmania. I was supporting my wife who was in Hobart for an awards ceremony where she was nominated for a prestigious teaching award. I took the image at Constitution Dock, a location that features many period-style buildings. I was taken with this façade because of its limited colour palette, which suits my minimalist colour photo style. I’m thrilled that this image also recently won the Juror’s Choice Award for the Darkroom Gallery’s Chroma competition.

This is a Digital Art work created with XenoDream 3D graphics software. One of my latest and favorite creations displayed at online exhibitions and ArtDoxa Community for Contemporary Art and has a considerable amount of views.
This is a new favorite, because I I liked the effect I achieved with Photoshop filters. It is an experimental work that has informed the realistic digital photomontages that I create.
This shot is in the Iguaçu Falls in Foz do Iguaçu – Brazil in a morning of fog in January of 2016.
I started in the photography in 2013 and i love rocks photography. My camera is a Samsung digital compact lens 25mm and I not used a specific technique so zoom. I’m from Brazil.
I know this osprey quite well. This osprey has made his nest with his mate, in the same spot in a very large county park in St. Petersburg, FL adjacent to a parking lot where I often park when I do a training session on my bike. The regulars call him “Fleck” due to a fleck at the 7 o’clock position of his right eye. I often photograph him and on this day, I was photographing an owl’s nest about a mile away and stopped by to see if there was any action at the osprey nest. I found him sitting on a power line with a fish and knowing that he is uncomfortable around people and other birds when he has caught a fish, I readied my camera for action.
He did not disappoint and took off towards his adjacent nest and I started firing my camera. I filmed a complete sequence in which the bird landed on the nest and fed the fish to his waiting mate which the locals have named Jewel. When I got home and was uploading my images, I almost fell off my chair when I saw that I had made this amazing capture of the bird with his wings in the so-called angel wing position, making direct eye contact t with me and clutching a fish in one talon – a one in a million capture!!

Details: I have taken this photo at Pushkar Fair (Pushkar Camel Fair) or locally Pushkar ka Mela is an annual five-day camel and livestock fair held in the town of Pushkar in the state of Rajasthan, India. It is one of the world’s largest camel fairs. Apart from the buying and selling of livestock, it has become an important tourist attraction.

I recently completed portfolio series I call “I am the Lorax”. In 1971, Dr. Seuss sought to make the world’s children aware of the crisis threatening our natural resources with the simple refrain, “I am the Lorax; I speak for the trees.” Nearly half a century later, our environment remains under an ever-darkening cloud. And just as in The Lorax, we remain oblivious of the peril. This is my favorite photo of this group of portraits of trees, abstracts with hints of the creatures, the souls, of the trees try to “speak” to us.

“Still Motion #1
“Still Motion #1” is an image of traffic at the corner of J and 21st Streets in Sacramento, CA. It was made by compositing a selection of 200 images of auto and foot traffic during a 15 minute period into a single frame. It symbolizes the hundreds of anonymous people that we briefly encounter each day and yet do not notice. Each of us rushing about in what, at best, is the semi-structured chaos of our lives.
I like this picture because of its simplicity and humor. The truck painted with the flag was actually sitting on the side of the road out East in Long Island. It was a mess, but I was able to clean it up and place the driver inside the cab. Thanks to digital painting and effects, I was able to add the dog, the background, the spinning wheels, the smoke and exhaust pipe, the balloons, and the color of the truck. I get a kick out of seeing the picture and I’ve gotten a lot of good feedback from the shows I have entered this picture into.

Cool Lime Twist
Since moving recently, I tried tabletop photography because I have great light from a north-facing window in my kitchen. After rediscovering my old slide sorter in the move, I used it as a lightbox/background for some kitchen photo studies. This is my favorite from a fruit series showing intricate inner lime structures revealed by a strong backlight. In Photoshop I manually created a kaleidoscopic pattern (a new favorite technique) from my lime photograph and placed the original photo into the open center of the kaleidoscope. (Base image: Olympus E-5 & Zuiko 50mm macro, f/13, 1/125 sec., ISO 1250, handheld)

The Castle of Chillon
This is one of my favorites photos, I made recently. The Castle of Chillon – Taken during May 2016, is one of my favorites images of this trip in Swiss and France. I like it compositionally, with the lines of the piers, the wood on the beach and the lines of the clouds leading the eye to this beautiful castle. The B&W processing enhances the atmosphere of the place and gives a dramatic appearance to the image. Taken with a Nikon D7000, and a Nikon 17-55mm lens, at 17mm. I used 2 Hoya ND filters (500 and 16) to achieve a 63 sec exposure (ISO 100, f/22).
This new image (June 7, 2016) depicts the fragility of the glaciers in a period of climate change. There is a fragility and an innocence about this image that calls to me — despite the rugged terrain and jagged rocks. This is the paradox of snow, ice, sky, and rocks — massive yet delicate.
Some of this image shows normal snow, much of which will be gone in a month or two — tracks of mini-avalanches are visible on the right side of the picture. The underlying ice is more durable, but it, too, is melting, which you can see by looking at the lower third of the image above the rocks.
Technically this image was a challenge and benefitted from normal exposure correction, a gradient mask, and some micro-sharpening using Topaz Clarity. The original image is 16×24@300 ppi, and it will print stunningly well at 32×48 inches on canvas or aluminum.

The presented work has been chosen because of the particular response it had from the viewers: because my research at this moment turns around the exploration of the Subject: the cultural object as defined on a conceptual level; in the context of postmodernity this aspect is especially important in terms of questioning the issue of the choice operated – both as artist and critic.
One of the things have been sought is among other things also the re-thinking of various notions about and approaches toward the development of an image, the question of composing different sources’ material (from programmed to drawn to borrowed).
