The photos are titles Architecture and The Other (An Ode To R.L.Stevenson)
Architecture is a photoshop amalgam of two images. The first of a weird big steel structure and the second of two (yes, two) buildings at night and the skyline between them. The second photo is cut and mirrored so it looks like three pieces of skyline when there is really only one. I just keep looking at this photo and I can't decide if I like it.
The Other (An Ode to R.L.Stevenson) is something I am rather proud of. It's been sitting in my mind for a long while and it just took some time and effort to actualize it. The technique is pretty simple. It's a long exposure so I can more my head into the scream and hold it (half a second) but with a flash in the beginning so I can freeze my original expression. The title is two-fold: my original title and a shout out to the author of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, my inspiration for the photograph.
Facebook album, if you are inclined to see the rest.
The second image is in a bus stop in London. The circle is seeing through the glass, and everything else is reflected behind. It's kind of artsy and I like it.
The final image I made while waiting (nearly an hour!) for my friends to join me skating at Nathan Phillips Square (Toronto City Hall). I had a lot of fun with the cool lighting and the intense difference in tonality of the bright ice and the dark skyline. Took some fancy exposure work, but I'm rather happy with it.
Aside from basic RAW processing all images are un-edited, which is always a plus for me.
