Magnetic Aqua and Pink Garden Water Reflections

One of the oldest Japanese Gardens in the area with super stunning pagodas, plants, and lakes all around.

I decided to manipulate the image with various contrasts and effects to bring out the lush textures of the scene. Different shades of aqua green leaves and lavender pink skies reflect upon the waters, offering a soft, dreamy quality and aesthetic to the garden.

The Exotic Conservatory of Flowers Botanical Garden

Beautiful botanical garden with an array of unique aquatic, lowland, and highland plants and flowers inside and outside the greenhouse. The best spot? This area with a circle design that offers a glimpse of what's more to come as you head to the other side...

Luminous Monochrome Architecture and Design

Superb modern building in the city with reflections of clouds and the sun gleaming throughout each of the glass windows. After taking the photo at this specific angle, I lowered the saturation a bit for a monochromatic black and white vibe and then added a blue singular color for an unexpected flair.

Whimsical Pastel Sunset on the Canyon

After capturing the clear view of the canyon on the plane, I decided to have a little fun with the photo and create different effects. After adding a dreamy sunset to the background and altering the colors to give it an orange-pink vibe, I tweaked the imagery even more with rough pastels for a smooth painterly vibe. One last element? Incorporating some human aspect to the photo.
