New on 500px : A Dream Within a Dream by PedroQuintela1 by PedroQuintela1

My title is based on a 1849 Allan Poe´s poem that questions how can we distinguish between reality and fantasy. And this is very pertinent, because my sunset landscape was idealized before I shot it. In a couple of previous trips the forecast didn´t help, due to a very clean sky once and too much cloudy on the subsequent.

But, as always, I persiste and some weeks ago tried again. The day wasn´t what I want when I set all the gear and started to feel a bit demotivated. Then I notice a group of photographers in a spot above me and I was in his range… When I was starting to find another spot looked at the sky and that was what I dreamed! Was that real or was I dreaming? I only could make two single shots, using a 0.9 ND grad, a remote with the wide angle lens, before it all faded away, like… a dream.

I´m very glad to be here one more time, seeing all your amazing works, that inspire me so much. Hope that you like my vision, because was made from my heart and specially to be display on 500px. Thanks so much for your support in particular for not forgetting me, due to my forced absence last weeks. It means a lot to me. Have a great day and please feel free to comment in a constructive way.

Best On Black!

Here is a new photo from the La Jolla Coves, one of my all time favorite seascape locations. I was about knee deep in water when this was taken and a few waves came in and almost took my camera out. By the end of the shot I was waist deep in water, my camera is fine and the experience was amazing.

Thanks guys for taking a look at the photo

New on 500px : The Legacy of Ancestors by MahmoudYakut by MahmoudYakut

Heavily processed conceptual image with a sky layer added.
As an Egyptian I always grew up and lived with the legacy of my ancestors in the back of my mind. I remember as a child, the first time when I visited an ancient pharaoh temple I swapped its walls with my hand and felt myself connecting with the ancestors who’ve been in this place and touched these walls thousands of years ago, it was such a strange feeling to feel I am touching exactly the same wall they did.

Now when I visit any of these places, it is such a unique experience, I imagine them all alive and colored like they were originally been one day, and imagine those kings and their guards and all these majestic appearances and rituals…. for me it is like being in a dream or a fairy tale

New on 500px : Solitude by Shainblum by Shainblum

Always best on black

Here is a new shot from the La Jolla Coves, one of my absolute favorite places to catch sunset and shoot seascapes. This was a tough lighting situation with the sun being so bright. I wanted this shot to have a very dark and mysterious mood. I hope you all enjoy the photograph!
