He's been to some great places but I disagree with all the tampering that happens with the photos-highlight this/highlight that-having been to some of those places I can tell you they don't really look like that at all.

Truly talented photographers don't need to lie with pixels.

These are some of the worst images i have seen there are too many artistic filters used distorting the true beauty!

I don't like the way they have been tampered with either - many of them look like paintings rather than photos and look totally unreal.

its an interesting debate...what makes a photograph captivating. Is it the image itself? and how truthfully it should be depicted? or is it the artistic license taken with the image? or maybe for some just the location of the image? I suppose it all boils down to personal preference, and a lot of this gets emotional. You might like a particular (travel) picture, because you have special memories of the location. At any rate, with digital SLRs, you end up with a whole host of images that take dozens of different turns depending on your camera settings, processing, etc. I personally enjoyed this site, and many thanks jd for the recommendation. I think what I like most about it, is the joy the photographer seems to get out of taking and sharing the pictures. To me, this just enhanced the photographs, more than any retouching or affects.

Cheers for agreeing soupatrvlr.

I think that i may have worded the title of this post incorrectly, rather than photo i should have said picture. It has obviously taken the guy alot of time and skill to generate such eye catching images. He puts so much passion in finding the ideal subject and also the perfect location to capture the 'photo'. It is his technique he uses to draws all the colours out of a photo that obviously wouldn't be captured when looking at a normal photo that i like.

It is a bit arty-farty, but thats what i like about it.

Quoting jadeverell

It is a bit arty-farty, but thats what i like about it.....

It's nothing but cheap gimmickry is what it is.

BTW-the correct term for those 'pictures' is photo-illustrations.

As soupatrvlr says its all down to personal preference...

It reminds me a little of DJ'ing.....by taking an original song/TUNE and 'remixing' it and editing the sounds, with the intent of enhancing the end product to suit people who may like it. You wouldn't turn around to Sasha, Judge Jules and co, and say sorry mate that Mix was a complete gimmick, I hate the way you messed with the TUNE.

As 'photo-illustrations' (thanks Samsamon) I think they look pretty cool and wouldn't mind one hanging in my downstairs loo for everyone to see.

Its all about Opening the mind to new possibilities......

These are just HDR photos taken with various ND filters to create these effects... personally, I like both normal & HDR photography.
