    I recently visited my mom's province here in Zamboanga City, Phils. The local beach was just 15 minutes away, so I went 3 days in a row. Im back in Manila, and here are some images I would like to share.

    OVERBOARD / shot at about 5pm and using a 9 stop + CPL to get that silky smooth water effect.

    SKY FIRE / first day light gave me this visual ray. The colors popped while the sun went fading below the horizon

    IN THE DARK / opted to darken out the surrounding to give emphasis on the moss covered rock

    Thanks for viewing. Will post more soon.

    Regards,

    Here's a few more...


    STAND STILL
    - the remnants of an old pier. Got to this location early so I had to use 12 stops of ND to achieve the water effect

    KALEIDOSCOPE - 2nd day sunset. I was going back to the vehicle when this happened. Quicly set up my gear and fired away

    GOOD-GOODNIGHT - In Zamboanga, theres brownout occurring 8 hours a day. yes 8 hours. 4 in the morning and 4 in the afternoon. This gave me a chance to practice some star trail shooting. Shot just on our balcony. Haha!

    I really like that 1st one. Shame on the 2nd one with the movement on the colorful sails -- still not bad at all for a long exposure.

    Here some more I edited...

    I & The Multitude / A single moss covered rock surrounded by little ones. The cloudless afternoon produced some side lighted colors. It always pays when you decide to go for a quick stroll at the local beach even though you were really sure that the sunset was going to be dull.

    STRANGE WORLD
    / Minutes after the rays the colors were subtle but still awesome. I love it when all things come together in the end. Thank you Lord for your super awesome creations.
