Welcome to my photostream!

 

Thank you for all my Flickr friends who spend time viewing and commenting my photos. I am so so grateful to them, and they are a great source of inspiration too!

 

I apologize in advance if I don't reciprocate when someone adds me as a contact. My current list of contacts has reached a critical mass for me to manage. But if you leave a comment on my photo, I will try to visit your stream and comment back. Thank you for your understanding.

 

I uploaded my first photo on Flickr on November 17th, 2006. I discovered HDR (High Dynamic Range) photography on Flickr, and since then I am totally addicted to this technique. The only bad side is that I have to carry a tripod all the time, and press 5 times the shutter button to get my exposures for the HDR processing!

Lately I am using a new technique called DRI (Dynamic Range Increase) - also known as Digital Blending - which gives more natural results than HDR.

Daniel is one of the references if you like and want to do realistic HDRs and a master with manual Digital Blending. His photography is also full of great compositions and stunning night shots. He is great with cityscapes and landscapes. And also you can find in his photostream some treasures like urban decay pictures. He don't know but I have part of his work in my hard disk. And if I can I would like to have all his pictures at high res because he has done awesome big panoramas or vertoramas that I would like to see on my own walls. In summary, he is a great inspiration for every photographer and must be seen in your contact list. Keep on your magnificent work and sharing it. Regards, Sergio

Daniel is one of my oldest and dearest contacts on Flickr. I added him as a contact 2 years ago and I've been admiring his work ever since. He is a master of technicality in photography. Taking the tedious time to produce dazzling images that seem to make Explore and the Front page with nearly every image he posts. Anyone can take snapshots, but Daniel takes and creates photographs. With over 550 visits, on average, to his stream daily, I am so happy he is getting the recognition he deserves through Flickr and through the numerous publications that are printing his masterful work. Congratulations Daniel and thank you for your continued support over the past 2 years! You know it's appreciated!

Si je devais choisir juste deux mots pour parler de toi, Je choisirais sans hésiter « émerveillement » et « sourire ». L’émerveillement, je le ressens chaque fois que je regarde tes photos ; tu sais si bien capturer l’essence même de la lumière, si bien nous emmener avec toi dans tes fabuleux voyages, si bien nous faire rêver… L’émerveillement toujours devant ton incroyable maîtrise dans l’art du post traitement et la patience avec laquelle tu la partages… L’émerveillement encore devant toutes ces qualités qui font de toi une personne rare dont l’amitié est si précieuse : ta gentillesse, ta simplicité, ta générosité et mille autres encore… Le sourire enfin : celui que tu as toujours au coin des lèvres, et celui qui me vient spontanément lorsque je pense à toi. Daniel, ton Pays est une merveille, et tu es à son image. Mon rêve est de t’y rencontrer un jour :-) Gros bisous If I had to choose just two words to speak about you, it would be without hesitating “wonder” and “smile”. Wonder, I feel it each time I look at your photographs; you know so well how to capture the very essence of light, so well how to take us along with you in your fabulous journeys, so well how to make us dream… Wonder again faced with your incredible skill in art of post-processing and the patience you show to share it… Wonder then in front of all these qualities which make you a rare person whose friendship is so invaluable: your kindness, your simplicity, your generosity and thousand others more… The smile finally : the one you always have at the corner of your lips, and the one that spontaneously comes to me when I think of you. Daniel, your Country is a wonder, and you are in its own image. My dream is to meet you there one day :-) Warm kisses Anne-Marie

Daniel est avec Eric (alias Pi Production), les 2 personnes à qui je voue le plus grand des respect sur Flickr . Grâce à Daniel, j'ai découvert le "vrai" sens du mot et des photos en HDR et ces explications sur sa méthode de travail via ces commentaires sur ses shots et ces mails me permettent de progresser pas à pas. Ces compositions sont comme des cadeaux que l'on découvre en écarquillant les yeux pour voir si ce que l'on découvre devant notre PC est réel ou pas, tellement cela respire la perfection C'est quelqu'un que j'aimerais voir un jour en vrai :))) autour d'une tasse de café et de discuter photos, ça serait cool :))) D'ici là bonne continuation à toi, fait nous découvrir tes compositions futures de toute beauté En espérant qu'un jour, tu sois reconnu comme étant un des plus grand artistes de la photographie, tu le mérite !!!

And I am in a way, glad that it is him and not anybody else, for his works are simply great. I may not be able to appreciate or claim to like all of them, but I do think that there is a certain minimal degree of merit to everyone of them, especially in terms of wide compositions. Cheers, and please keep shooting! :)
