Superb Wallpapers by Alberto Seveso

I really don't mind changing my desktop wallpaper every time I find a gorgeous image. This time, I found a whole set of super wallpapers by designer Alberto Seveso. Do you know what ink looks like when it goes under water? He's got the answer for that question in this series of 6 wallpapers. I love this kind of experiment. Here you'll see the images, but to know the set, you must visit Alberto's page at Behance by clicking the images or clicking this link (you'll find the download link at the bottom of his page). I hope you enjoy these and turn your desktop into a beautiful underwater scene. Cheers! ;)

Photography Inspiration: Rastafari

I'm a huge fan of the rastafari culture and reggae music, since it's summer here in Brazil, I though would be cool to share this kind of inspiration with you guys. So we made a huge collection of rastafari photography inspired, hope you like it. madalena.leles Spirit photos Kristian Pletten www.ruprechtstudios.com Andres Ghiorzo Kwadwo Kwarte Javier Lovera facufotografia almost transparent blue Coussier The Rastafari movement or Rasta is a monotheistic, new religious movement that arose in a Christian culture in Jamaica in the 1930s.[1][2] Its adherents worship Haile Selassie I of Ethiopia, former Emperor of Ethiopia (1930–1936 and 1941–1974), as God incarnate, the Second Advent, and are known as Rastafarians, or Rastas. The movement is sometimes referred to as "Rastafarianism", but this term is considered derogatory and offensive by some Rastas, who dislike being labelled as an "ism".[3] (Wikipedia) Iago Rodrigues Lucas Farfaglia elementaudiovisual Mr Groove kidmissile duvsem MarcGrandmaison.com jaxting ? victorgil84 © Madrid lorenzodom The Rastafari movement encompasses themes such as the spiritual use of cannabis[4][5] and the rejection of western society (called Babylon, in reference more to the metaphorical Babylon of Christianity than to the historical Mesopotamian city-state). It proclaims Africa (also "Zion") as the original birthplace of mankind, and embraces various Afrocentric social and political aspirations[4][6], such as the sociopolitical views and teachings of Jamaican publicist, organizer, and black nationalist Marcus Garvey (also often regarded as a prophet) (Wikipedia).

Beautiful Morning Photography

We had a lot of Sunset photography already, but we never had a sunrise / morning post here as far as I can remember, so because of that, I did this for you guys. Mornings are great to take pictures, mainly because of the awesome mood. I call it the morning mood (no kidding). The sun is getting up, sun light beans hit Earth in little pockets here and there, and there's this little chilly feeling from the night still in the air. If it's awesome in the city, in the country or beach it's just fantastic. And that's what this post's about. For more of these pictures, you may check out each photographer's page! They'll appreciate it. I hope you enjoy these. Cheers! ;) Dietrich Bojko Patrick Smith andrew evans. Antony Spencer tropicaLiving andrew evans.

Foxy Photography

Foxes are definitely one the cutest animals out there and for sure one of the few that really look good in photographies. It's just impressive how cool these little foxy creatures are, in all their varieties. I want one. There's the Arctic Fox, the Red Fox, the Fennec Fox, and I'm pretty sure are a thousand other kinds that I don't know. I've chosen some really nice pictures of them, which I know will just melt your cold beings (just kidding). Fore more of these guys, you should really check out each photographer's portfolio. I hope you enjoy these.

Superb Rule-of-Thirds Photography

You might not know it, but if you're into photography, you might have noticed how better it looks than not following this rule in some cases. It's the Rule of Thirds, a simple rule to be followed so that your subject is placed within a certain area of an imaginary grid, which splits your picture in 9 equal areas. The rule of thirds is a compositional rule of thumb in visual arts such as painting, photography and design. The rule states that an image should be imagined as divided into nine equal parts by two equally-spaced horizontal lines and two equally-spaced vertical lines, and that important compositional elements should be placed along these lines or their intersections. Proponents of the technique claim that aligning a subject with these points creates more tension, energy and interest in the composition than simply centering the subject would. - Rule of Thirds at Wiki This is what the imaginary grid looks like, and how you may use it to place your subject somewhere besides the center of the image: From Wikipedia So I've searched for examples of pictures using this rule, and I've found some superb examples of usage. These are amazing, and you should really visit each one of these photographers (by clicking the pictures) for more great pictures, and even buying some of these images. I'll probably buy one or two to hang in my wall. I hope you enjoy these. Cheers! ;) ConstantineD kukkurovaca Melissa.Photography.

Beautiful Photos from the 2010 NatGeo Photography Contest

Every year National Geographic promotes a photographic contest, with the categories "people", "places" and "nature", which awards the winner $10000 and publishes their picture in the NatGeo magazine. Accepting entries from all over the world, this year's submission period was closed on November 30th, and the entries were already unveiled. The rules for the contest allow minor modifications on image editors, but some of the photos are so amazing that they seem completely manipulated. So in this post we've selected 20 of these fantastic photos to share with you. You can also see more images, including from the previous years, in the National Geographic website. About the Author Hi, my name Mariana Schneider, I'm a design student at ESPM in Porto Alegre. I'm a lover of all kinds of art, from music to painting, but photography usually catches my attention for showing us the amazing things that we look at everyday but never really see. You can find me on Twitter and see some of my own work on deviantArt.
