Cyber-exhibition "Food for Thought"

Taking a photo of one’s dinner plate before consuming it I guess is what’s called ‘modern art’.  The inspiration behind the shot was Dr. Seuss’ 1960’s book “Green Eggs and Ham’, although on my plate has yellow eggs, black beans and fried plantain. Not such a great book title as Seuss but far tastier than his green eggs and ham!

Cyber-exhibition No.23 "WaterWorld"

Taking photographs of architecture is pretty straight forward. However, making them attention-grabbing is the real challenge. One of my favourite photographic techniques for cityscapes is including something of interest in both the foreground and background. This picture, taken just after the extention to the Corniche demonstrates the method perfectly.  Composition is also key and you will notice I’ve balanced all the important elements here.

Cyber-exhibition No.24 "The Miracle of Life"

“Miracle of Life” was taken in the Hajjar Mountains near Ras Al Khaimah. How a lone tree can survive up there is a beyond belief, hence the title of the picture. Being the highest mountain range in the eastern Arabian peninsula meant I needed to use a zoom lens to see anything. It was an unusually bright, clear day with very little sand and dust in the air. I took a single shot knowing I’d nailed it first time. Centering the tree in the picture works well and the ratio of sky to earth is near perfect with the deep blue sky and electric green of the tree contrasting each other nicely.
