Enchanting Night Imagery: Glowing Fireflies Light Effect


Fireflies Imagery Part II: Imagine walking into a beautiful garden with glowing firefly lights along with jewel-toned colored plants and trees surrounding the area. Now imagine staring at that forever.

Nights like these are so rare...and often cannot be seen in city-like spaces. I decided to create my own magical, endearing scene to capture that moment. I darkened this garden, enhanced the contrast, hue and saturation and made other color adjustments to give the bright glow-in-the-dark look. I added in some firefly lights in the near distance to further elevate the fascinating scene.

Bird's-eye View: Marin County's Stellar Landscape


After a long, pleasant, somewhat exhausting hike, this stunning view of Marin County and San Francisco bay greets us at the top. I was amazed by how blue the waters were and loved watching the fog come and go as the day progresses.

Sky and Clouds Skyscraper Glass Reflections


Glass building with reflections of the blue sky and clouds nearby. I loved watching the clouds move and had to capture the movement and the overall scene! I lightened the image a bit to add more emphasis on the cloud and sky mirrored images.

Dazzling Golden Silver Chandelier Lights Collage


As always, Westin St Francis hotel has the most elaborate chandeliers ever. You can see different versions of them gleaming from the lobby and the dozens of meeting rooms. I decided to compile these in a collage (along with other details like the ornate stairs and escalator) and add a slight grey overlay to the cloned chandeliers in the background.
