The second image voted on by Twitterites is a little different than my typical affair. More or less flat and less dynamic in my eyes. I took this photo this while on my way to shoot something totally different. The reason for stopping was because the yellow and red together caught my eye. It’s a shame it was on a hill and in the bright light of the sun, the odd blue color of the wall ended up being tricky to work with in post but I ended up sharing it on YWO anyhow. I figured why not share something a little different and turns out some of you enjoyed it enough to request it as a desktop so here we are with me critiquing my own photograph.

This reminds me, I have been thinking a lot recently about my lack of time to go out and shoot somewhere other than home and the few places I end up between. Photography, obviously, involves being physically and emotionally present within the space you are shooting and without time and the benefit of places nearby worth exploring it can get frustrating some days when I end up at home empty handed. I know I have a full article lingering somewhere in the back of my mind on this topic so I will shelve this for another day, in the mean time, hope enjoy the new images and I will see you again soon.

    I just recently know fiftyfootshadows, so i dind’t knew YWO, and i was thinking how do you manage to post so many pictures almost everyday. Then you talk about time. So, I wan’t to ask you if you shoot everything on RAW or laso JPG. I wonder because i’m starting, sometimes i take many pictures in RAW, but latter is hard to have all the time. I’m still don’t use preset on LR (i have just a few months doing photogrphy), but i have been thinking on shoot in JPG, i think it takes more work in the moment of the shoot, wich sometimes it’s a kind of frustrating going through the menus (I use a D5100). On the other hand, I enjoyed so much shooting with film… Think I still need to find a workflow.
    Thanks for sharing your beautiful photos.

Any use of these images for any purpose other than this is a violation of these terms and anyone found using said images will be asked to either compensate the creator for doing so or be asked to stop using them immediately.

I ask that you refrain from using any images found on to create physically printed material of any kind. This includes posters, photographic prints, fliers, etc. Under no circumstances may you make a physical reproduction without written permission.

These rules also apply for any artwork or imagery submitted and shown within this site which was created by an artist aside from myself. Any images submitted and shared as wallpapers are the property of the artist who created them and in the same manner as my images, you are asked to receive permission before using them in any way aside from their intended use. Any use of these images outside of for your own personal use as a desktop wallpaper image is prohibited without permission from the author of the image. Commercial licensing is available upon request. Please write with any inquiries.

When sharing images via your personal blogs I kindly ask that you link back directly to either the post the image was taken from or the base of the website at and give a credit to Do not re-post full resolution desktop images anywhere without permission. If you would like to use an image for your blog background or something of the sort simply write to ask first. Support the artwork you admire! Also, it is greatly appreciated if you do NOT link directly to the zip files. This is more or less the same as re-posting them as it circumvents the tiny bit of support I ask of you which is to simply link back to the original post for others to enjoy the site.

It’s not fair to artists if you do not credit their work and link back to the original content creator. It is theft plain and simple and blogs that attempt to somehow be mysterious by not giving credit to the creators are simply hurting the artistic community as a whole. If you love it so much then please, support it! The artistic community on the Internet is based on trust. Without trust then what do we have? are you going to be one of the responsible users out there or will you be among the bottom feeders, stealing content and passing it off as your own to make a quick buck in ad sales.

Use your best judgement and we will get along just fine.

Thank you for your understanding and support!
