The Making of "Autumn Colors"

Winner of the February, 2017 "Benches" photo contest

By vaksi in Photo Contests on Apr 4, 2017

"Autumn Colors"

My story is very simple. I had too many lenses to carry, and I wanted an "all round" lens for my hiking tours. I bought a Sigma 18-200mm F3.5-6.3 DC Macro OS HSM (Contemporary) lens and I was trying that out with my Pentax K-50 camera on a foggy morning in November on a passage on the north coast of lake Balaton, Hungary.

The passage was empty, and that together with the fog gave a mysterious atmosphere. I tried to find a good position to shot, which it was not difficult, the place presented itself!

The Making of "Racing against the Sunset"

Winner of the January, 2017 "Sunrise/Sunset" photo contest

By candid in Photo Contests on Mar 4, 2017

"Racing against the Sunset"

First of all, my sincere thanks to everyone who nominated and voted for my photo in January 2017's "Sunrise/Sunset" contest.

Now on to how I took and processed this picture:

Most of my photos are taken while on vacation and I have never travelled with the specific purpose of taking photos. I just travel to different places and take pictures of things that I find interesting and inspiring.

This image was taken on 22 January 2013 in Bagan, Myanmar. It is home to the largest and densest concentration in the world of Buddhist temples, pagodas, stupas, and ruins with many dating from the 11th and 12th centuries.
