Lost In Paradise: Colorful Sunsets and Palm Trees Bliss

La Jolla Cove Part III: A nice, peaceful, end-of-day stroll heading down San Diego watching the sun slowly set into the ocean. The surrounding rows of palm trees, buildings, and bright colors from the sunset made it the most epic scene ever.

The New York Icon: Flatiron Building's Remarkable Design

The stunning, spectacular Flatiron building in New York City. We loved seeing it from all angles and from top to bottom. With the mid-afternoon sun and humid heat, the partly cloudy blue skies made for an amazing backdrop for this photo.

Suite Dreams: Blue-Green Lights & New York Skyscrapers

It's always so much fun altering a series of images, tweaking the colors, saturation, hue, and everything in between. For this stunning image of the lower Manhattan skyline, I wanted to give it a dramatic look and feel, with a slight twilight vibe but filtered with more hints of blue-green and yellow colors. Something that is dreamy and aspirational, but not soft or wispy. Something that has an eccentric personality and reflects the true spirit and energy of New York.

Rainbow Vision: Soft Waves and Clouds in Lake Waters

What a sight! After a rainy turned sunny day, I took a walk around the lake and captured this nice shot of the water. It was a normal peaceful image and I decided to enhance it a bit with extra saturation, a change in hue, contrast, and an extra rainbow edge in the waves. I also added in some painterly effects to give it a nice, smooth picturesque vibe, resembling a painting.

Surrounded by other astonishing skyscrapers in all sizes and designs and bright blue skies all around, this captures the essence of New York in a quick heartbeat.

Cotton Candy Sky and Palm Tree Dreams

The twilight zone. As we wait for the sun to set, we looked to the opposite side at these palm trees and full moon. I decided to have a little fun with this photo by adding in pastel pink and blue splatters across the sky (to resemble cotton candy), mixing and blurring it with different saturation and hues. The result is a soft, dreamy look for a relaxing summer day.
