The "Ghost Rider" sculpture by Albert Szukalski. Inspired by Halloween, I took this sculpture that looks like a ghost with a bicycle at Goldwell Open Air Museum by Rhyolite, NV. Taken with the Sony A7rii and SEL1635z at ISO 100, f16 and 1/15s. Converted to black and white on PS and vignette applied. — in Rhyolite, Nevada.
Belmont, NV is one of the mining towns that retained so much of its past. This GMC truck was taken with the Sony A7rii and SEL1635z lens at ISO 100, f8 and 1/160s.

Autumn in the park It's finally autumn and a damn hot one! I just got to try to capture its beauty. This shot is taken in the main park of my city - Montana (this one should be easy for Mike to pronounce 😉 ) Last year took similar image at almost the same place, but this time I took it a little bit more differently. The image is processed first in Lightroom and then in Photoshop in order to remove a light pole on the right side and to add some color and sharpness. Taken with Nikon D7200 with kit lens (18-140mm) at 70mm; 1/80sec at f/8 ISO 200 - handheld on my knee 😉
Had a short break in the 6 days of Rain and fog to get a couple of shots of fall color long exposure on a tripod (2 things I'm not used to ) Fall colors are tuff to edit — in Hiles, Wisconsin.
Very early morning trip to Kaaterskill Falls. Fall color is coming slowly this year. I'm hoping we hit peek before the end of the month. Not much to say about this other than I was trying to capture the falls with the valley full of color. Unfortunately there is still a lot of green (I tried to remove the tree on the right but each time I did you could tell when you zoomed in which I know AD does. So for that reason I left it in :-).)
Annual Zombie Walk - Asbury Park NJ. I think this was one of the best costumes, lots of fun.
Autumn is my favourite colour

Sun rays at sunset I was at local water reservoir near my home town - Montana, Bulgaria, with some friends trying to find a nice place to take some photographs. As happens in such cases the nature doesn't wait and makes her spectacle with those wonderful sun rays. So as my friends were taking some portrait shots I've pointed my camera toward those rays and just clicked. Taken with Nikon D7200, kit lens (18-140mm); 1/400 sec at f/8 ISO 200; 18 mm; handheld and windy 😛 (excuses, excuses...)
I was experimenting with street photography when these characters stopped and posed. What advice and tips would you give for achieving a good composition in a similar situation when you only have a few seconds to frame and shoot.
This was taken with a Canon 450D modified for full spectrum. While the additional infrared lightens the foliage and adds a glow, it plays havoc with the white balance. In this instance, rather than trying to get close to the natural colours, I chose to emphasize the autumnal reds and golds. The focus on full spectrum images can look odd because of the different focusing distances of visible and infrared spectra.
