a field of dunes

Sometimes, our imagination takes us away from basic realities. And we need such a mind journey. So, is this photography depicts reality with a large field of sandy dunes?

Black and White / Monotone Abstracts

I love black and white and I do a lot of abstract work. However, I find it challenging to combine the two. I would love feedback about these as well as to see some of your black and white abstracts in the thread. Thanks in advance!

My first ever UFO SIGHTING

I went out with my camera gear, knowing there were storms coming in from the West. so I went to my favorite spot because it was flat land and when the storm got to me I noticed a cigar or tube shaped UFO, YEAH I SAID A UFO, and I am not joking , cause this thing moved like no tomorrow.... Spoofing in and out of the clouds so I know as so frozen...

BW Guitar

Photo shot a while back of wife's guitar, sort of a "found objects around the house" exercise, after she was done playing. Decided to go BW with it, and a hint of split tone.

[Edit] OK, so I greatly reduced the "highlight strip" down near the saddle. I didn't have another shot from this shoot without that highlight/ reflection, but there...

The Long Windowed Room

An abandoned vacation home in the old Elkmont community within the Great Smoky Mountains National Park (NPS). For many years (before the Park Service took over) the family must have enjoyed many times together in this room that looks out over the Smoky Mountains. Today the sun still shines through dirty windows and sheds light on what was once...

Gold Coast Railroad Museum, Miami

The Gold Coast Railroad Museum is basically in the parking lot of ZooMiami (formerly the Miami Metrozoo). Some of the buildings used by the museum were part of the Richmond Naval Air Station, a WW2 lighter-than-air hangar and maintenance facility. I photographed a few of these structures several years ago.

The first two pictures show...

Jess at Manatee Springs State Park

Jess is a bartender in Gainesville and I noticed her behind the bar one night last year. I asked if I could take a few pictures of her while she worked and then showed her the results. She and her co-workers were impressed and I gave her my card in case she was interested in working on something more formal.

She contacted me a few weeks...

Woman

This is an own project that feels right in time. It's time for all women to stand up for themselves and take no sh.t ... I created the glasses and asked a girl that I had shot before if she liked my idea. I'm so glad she did. Her expression couldn't be better.

C-47 at Wings Over Miami

Bobby's picture of the DC3 inspired me to look up some shots I made many years ago at the Wings Over Miami air museum at Kendall-Tamiami Executive Airport in Miami.

When I'm shooting cars at a show or this aircraft at the airport, I'm usually inclined to shoot abstract closeups that isolate parts of the subject instead of the whole...

Shadow Pupeteer.

I shot this on my Sony a6000 with the kit lens. I thought the shape and structure or this photo was great, but feel free to comment any thoughts or criticism. I’m still somewhat new to photography, so I’d appreciate it.

A time lost

This body of a DC3 that my Grandfather flew in during D-DAY in world war 2 sits along the aviation school in Oklahoma city Oklahoma. And I wanted it to look like an old film picture , but then realized that I didn't put any scratches overlay on it, any thoughts?
