An FA/18 Super Hornet displaying a vapor cone during a sonic boom at the Jones Beach Airshow in Long Island, New York. Taken in continuous shooting mode. I was following it with my finger depressing the button... snap, snap, snap, then boom!! This was the loudest thing I've ever heard.

This High Dynamic Range (HDR) photo was taken in the early morning hours at Calgary International Airport (YYC). Our flight was going to Toronto. While waiting for the crew to get ready, the sky was giving us a nice show, which reflected in the aircraft's body.

The Furka Pass (elevation 2436 meters) is a high mountain pass in the Swiss Alps which I crossed over on my way home from Zermatt to Zurich. As I found out later, this pass has been the location for a chasing scene in James Bond - Goldfinger!
This image is a panoramic photo, stitched from 12 single frames using the program "Kolor Autopano". The sky has been replaced to make it look more dramatic and I used Nik Color Efex 3.0 to add some atmospheric warmth. Furthermore, I did some heavy repairing in Photoshop to get rid of the central roads, wires and other distracting elements. Finally, I added low opacity vignetting to focus the view to the center.
This beautiful girl, with her extreme makeup and her sumptuous lips, appears to have made a new friend. I paint-rolled the background onto the paper with vivid, artist's quality acrylic paint. I then inked the form and applied the last layer of acrylic paint.
