  • dreamy

    yuna says:
  • looks like a plastic landscape,fake,over the top with \’soft\’ lighting often used in B-Porn.
    It looks like HDR and not like an actual photograph

  • @flare

    None of what you describe detracts from its beauty or artistic merit.

    Just when you think you’re bored of the conventional theme of landscapes, someone does something extraordinary – like this.

    douglas says:
  • The first photo is stunning. It’s probably HDR infrared photography.

    Jimmy Gunawan says:
  • great work

    bilya says:
  • could someone explain me which after effects have been used there? or what kinds of techniques?
    i really like those pictures they’re looking really beautiful

    vincent says:
  • Thx.

    Images are not hdr or infrared. Lightly touched in PS. Everything straight from the cam with natural light.
