Thumbnail image for Photo of the week: Lake in Denmark with reflections

I shot this photo way back but I didn’t really like it until I started playing around with it in post-processing lately, to bring out the colors even more – this was the final edit that I decided I liked the most, it was also cropped a little to get rid of some of the […]

Thumbnail image for Photo of the week: Empire State Building

I snapped this photo of Empire State Building on my recent trip to New York. I was on one of the tourist cruises and on my way back from Liberty Island when I decided to rack out my new Sigma 18-250mm OS HSM lens to the full 250mm to fill the frame as much as […]

It’s time for another Photo of the Week and this time I’m going to show one reason why it’s a good idea to always use a lens hood on your lens for extra protection… This was shot with a wide angle, Tokina 12-24mm, a really great lens for the price, I think. And yes, the […]

I thought I wanted to try something slightly different for this Photo of the week and show you a real snapshot for once, showing a little bit of where I live. What I mean by “snapshot” is a photo that was born for no real reason other than just to take a photo of whatever […]

Photo of the week: Happy Valentines Day

Thumbnail image for Photo of the week: Happy Valentines Day

I don’t “celebrate” Valentines Day at all. I don’t see the point of giving flowers on a day where it’s expected. I much rather give flowers unexpected and bring real happiness out, rather than pleasing an expectation. But that doesn’t mean I can’t photograph Valentines-related stuff, such as these balloons which I caught on the […]

Photo of the week: Flying Seagull (I think?)

Thumbnail image for Photo of the week: Flying Seagull (I think?)

For this photo of the week I decided to go with a lucky shot I captured the other day. I think it’s a seagull, but to be honest, I was never really good at recognizing animals, especially those I don’t see too often. I was walking along the waterfront with my Nikon D7000 in aperture […]

Thumbnail image for Photo of the week: Naxxar Parish Church in Malta

I think it’s been a few weeks since the last photo of the week, so I thought it was time to post another recent photograph. The photo below is the top of the local parish church here in Naxxar, Malta. The chuch itself was built some 400 years ago and it’s a stunning looking church. […]

Here’s another photo of the week where it’s all about being in the right place at the right time. I can’t remember the last time I saw a rainbow in Malta – in fact, I can’t remember the last time I saw a rainbow anywhere and I had a camera handy. Needless to say, I […]

Photo(s) of the week: Snow & Golden Sunset

Thumbnail image for Photo(s) of the week: Snow & Golden Sunset

Last week’s sunset photo of the week kinda sucked, so this week I’m giving you two photos (mainly because I couldn’t decide which one I like the most). I spent like 4 hours walking around in -8*C degrees (17*F) shooting with the Nikon D7000, which by the way, did quite well. Over 200 photos during […]

Photo of the week: Sunset (and your opinion needed!)

Thumbnail image for Photo of the week: Sunset (and your opinion needed!)

Another week went by since the last photo of the week update and I haven’t really been out shooting since, except for this snapshot below I caught a few days ago. And that’s exactly what it is, just a snapshot. I really had no intentions of making this photo a 5-star photo to begin with […]

Let’s be honest, this shot isn’t going to win any prizes, I know that 🙂 Why publish this shot as photo of the week, you’re wondering? Well, I’ve headed up north to where my family lives to spend Christmas and there’s snow and cold here. I like how it looks outside, so bright and white […]

I forgot to put this one up yesterday, so even though I’m posting it this week it’s actually a picture for last week 🙂 Anyway – time’s not important. I didn’t get to shoot much last week but this is probably the one I like the most. I’m a complete newbiew when it comes to […]

I don’t get to experience much daylight during this time of year. In the mornings, sure, but that’s when I go to work – and when I leave work, it’s dark. So when I had to go out and play with my new Sigma 70-200 f/2.8 lens tonight, it was completely dark. In fact, darker […]

Thumbnail image for Photo of the week: Chillin’ in the sea

This photo was actually shot Sunday, so depending on what part of the world you live in, Sunday is this week – but that’s a minor technicality. The point is, the photo I’ve decided for this week’s Photo of the Week, is this one… Chillin’ in the sea This one was shot at around 5pm […]
