Imagine a place where the only reason to go is the food. I was there, it’s call Chiboz and it’s in Switzerland after 20 minutes driving one a tight road in the mountains you arrive in a cosy place to eat. In front of the restaurant I shot this landscape and for the first time I use my polarizator filter. No saturation added in the HDR processing. The food was great.

Fix the sky a little

The lake Léman shot from St-Sulpice, Switzerland. The place on the left side of the picture is the city of Lausanne. I like the differents types of clouds during this sunny day.

Back to the roots

Posted on Oct 10, 2009 in Close Up

It’s the close up of the lonely Tree of Ta Prohm, Anghkor, Cambodgia. It’s not his real name, but it’s fit well. In this temple the nature take his right and everything is invaded by roots or trees.

Sunshine from the temple

Posted on Oct 7, 2009 in Landscape

Take from the Prasat temple near Siem Reap, Cambodgia. It’s quite popular to watch the sunshine on the temple. It’s totally worth it, a peaceful moment after a hot day visiting temples.

Fisher’s Town

Posted on Oct 5, 2009 in Landscape

Taken during my trip in Asia, it’s a fisher’s town neart Siem Reap Cambodgia. I tried to work on the colour of the boats and the grain for this 3 exposures HDR shot.

Colourful Flon

Posted on Sep 22, 2009 in Urban

During the electrosanne, I escape from the concert to shot this popular street called the Flon, Lausanne, Switzerland. I work on the colorful lights and use a long exposure to avoid the crowd.

Another shadowed green pond

Posted on Sep 21, 2009 in Landscape

In the same serie than a few of my recents pictures, I continue to work on water, shadow and green scenery. This time with this nice weather, I’ve got a cool reflect that I doesn’t except. Shoot in Saint-Blaise, Neuchâtel, Switzerland.

Green plant in a shadowed pond

Posted on Sep 2, 2009 in Landscape

Believe it or not, this picture has been taken in the Lausanne cemetery not very far from the place where the picture called End of a summer day has been shot.

At first, I planned to shot an HDR based on 3 RAW. Afer a few minutes on the spot I noticed that the water is moving, so 3 RAW can’t make it. So I use the one RAW technic. In this picture, I concentrate my attention on the green plant which is in the shadow. I’m pretty happy with the result.

Time to leave

Posted on Aug 19, 2009 in Architecture

Take the night when I leave the country to go in Asia for holidays. I like the sun throught the name of the airport, so no need to mention the location.

Clouds and Leman Lake

Taken from the top of the Sauvabelin Tower (see previous picture) in Lausanne, Switzerland. You can see the roof of the Lausanne Cathedral in the left part of the picture. Colors and levels are modified through the HDR process.

Built of glass

The Provence Center Building in Lausanne, Switzerland. My first try with my brand new wide angle Sigma 10-20 and another HDR experience.

Service included

Posted on May 8, 2009 in Action

Taken during the first playoff game of a regional volleyball league in Lausanne, Switzerland.

This picture is a bit noisy because of the lack of light in the gym hall and the use of a 3200 ISO sensitivity to compense. Have a close look on number fifteen, a smart guy who indicate where to serve.

Snow fall

Be careful when you’re in the mountains. Taken on the top of the Rochers de Naye, above Montreux, Switzerland.

Hello Kitty

Blue eyes and pretty face. It’s hard to keep a cat quiet with the right ray of light. Pretty happy with this result.

Evening on the green

Posted on Feb 18, 2009 in Misc

Hole 17, you’re tired but happy. Your last swing wasn’t so bad. This putt and the last hole then you’ll have a beer with your friends. The barbecue party will start after the 18th hole.

Can’t wait the opening of the season.

The “Market Place” of Neuchâtel

Posted on Feb 14, 2009 in Urban

Based on one RAW picture this is another HDR experience. This place is in the middle of the town of Neuchâtel, Switzerland.

With the “one raw technic”, I don’t have to care about the “ghost effect” that you see sometimes in HDR picture. For the technical viewers, the exposure time in the EXIF data is wrong because of the image manipulation.

Red trees

A alley of trees near the port of Vancouver, Canada. The special effect is a built-in function of the IXUS called “color accent”.
