No new photo for today, but instead two new high-res wallpapers for you :) Still, since the 3440×1440 seems to be the most popular, here are two more in this one (but next time will add some other ones :)). As always, the new ones and all the older ones can be downloaded form the wallpapers page.

The Louvre

Today is the 6th year anniversary of my first post to this blog and actually also to the day I first created it. I haven’t started daily updates from the first day yet, but quite shortly afterwards :) A lot really has changed from that time, from the look of the blog, look of the photos, and also in my life, with me being able to take photos full-time. I never thought that that would happen when I started, and I still can’t believe it sometime :)

And to celebrate, I’m giving away 6 copies of my video tutorial series, Master exposure blending. So if you want one, just leave a comment on this post, and I will randomly choose from them in a week. And if you don’t know what to comment about, just say how you found about my blog or stumbled across it :)

And if you are curious, here is the photo I posted on the 4th March 2010

And this is how the page looked like than :)

Taking a little rest today, so no new photo, but two new wallpapers for you. And since the 21:9 seem to be most popular, here are two new for you, both in 3440×1440 resolution. As always, you can download them from the wallpapers page.

Sunset at the Neusiedlersee
In the metro

First of all, sorry for the late announcement, but it’s always a challenge to synchronize the schedules of busy photographers :)

But before I get to the winners, let me first thank you our sponsor Aurora HDR from Macphun & Trey Ratcliff, for providing the great prizes, our judges Conor MacNeil from
Jonathan Danker from Jonathan Danker Photography, Anthony Gelot from A.G. photographe,  and of course to all of you who joined the contest or voted for your favorites.

Don’t forget to try out Aurora HDR. You can get the free trial version right now form Aurora HDR website.

Jury selection

It was quite hard to choose the winner this time, with all judges choosing different favorites at first, but in the end, as the one winner they choose the entry number 70 from Renant Hong Cheng, with the judges praising the clean “real-life” processing he used.  As the jury selection winner Renant will receive an Everyday messenger bag by Peak design.

I would also like to mention entries 74 Marklin Ang, 111 Nguyen Thai Thach, 114 ET Choong and 124 Sebastien Gaborit who all were not far from being the winner.

Peoples choice

Same as by the jury selection, the voting in the facebook album was really close this time, with multiple photos being very close in the number of likes and only in the end one broke away from the pack. And the winner here with 411 votes, was the entry number 107 from Richie Goh. As a winner of the peoples choice selection, Richie will be recievein a  Parrot Jumping Sumo Drone by Parrot.

I will be contacting both winners in the next few hours, so if you are one of them, check you FB messages, and if you don’s see one from me, contact me there or via my email

Again thank you very much to everyone and I hope to be able to make another round for you again :)

A busier day today as I hoped and while I hoped to take some new shots, I ended up with none. So today just a quick repost of one of my videos, on how to take multiple brackets on the Sony a7R (and similar cameras).
