And I pushed the visual quality UP with Photoshop and other HDR software. Okay, it’s getting annoying with UP, […]

The View.

Gotta start to treat the 2500+ usable USA pictures that I shot someday… Made this really quickly before I went home today. Busy as a bee at the moment! In other news, I saw our 7 centimeter long child on a ultra sound machine today… Fantastic. Can’t wait for the little one to come out […]

Due to the limited space in the museum, only a dozen of images […]

Shanghai Bund.

Pretty clear sky over Shanghai.

Taken during one of the only three days you got every year where you can (almost) see the horizon in Shanghai, China. I have shot and edited this image sometime between 2007-2009 for the ‘China Prophecy: Shanghai’ exhibition in The Skyscraper Museum in Lower Manhattan, New York City. Due to the limited space in the […]
