Relaxing in the Shadow

As I wrote a few posts ago, I would be in Japan the next month – almost - Well, here I’m two days into the journey, as always I’ll try to post some of the Japan shoots when I’m still out here, but don’t expect to much cause I rather spent the time hunting for new footage the post-process while I’m on the road.

Today’s shoot is not from Japan but from Thailand – where I was in 2008 – it’s from a temple of some kind, unfortunately I forgot the name of the place – and it was a time before geotags – but, anyway I passed this lady having a break in the shadow from all the hard labour she was doing.

Today you get one more from Dubai, this one was made inside the Burj Khalifa - the tallest building in the world – where the architecture was just amazing in some areas. You can buy a ticket (100Dhr) and get to the 124th floor, where you can get out on a platform and enjoy the view of Dubai from above.
By the way the elevator that brings you to the 124th floor is the fastest in the world, it travels with 64 Km/h and it takes about a minute to go from ground floor to the 124th.

I adjusted contrast, brightness and so on the photo in Lightroom and converted it to black and white with Silver Efex Pro 2 by Nik Software.

I wish you a photographic 2011

And I hope you had a great new years eve, I know I did, I was keeping it low-key this year,  just me and a couple of friends, eating and drinking the night away.

Well My first post of 2011 is from My trip to DC in 2009, I spend 10 days there – with a few days off to do a little road trip to Jamestown, here’s a shoot from that trip – just walking around the city, it’s a nice city, much nicer then I thought it would be, the Smithsonian area is just fantastic and a must see when in town.

This shoot is from the other side of the river also known as Arlington, a bit more boring then DC, mostly skyscrapers – which a kind of cool when you are a guy from Denmark – and other offices buildings the only interesting thing here is of course  the Arlington cemetery, which you’ll see some photos from in a near future, I’m sure.

Post process: I added contrast and leveled the photo in Photoshop. I thought about removing the lights you can see through the windows, but decided to leve them, cause I like that it shows that there is some life beyond the glass.
