Photoessay: Dissolving Prague

H51-B0015273 copy

Today’s series is a continuation (and partial overlap of) the Through the looking glass post of last week. It’s a little less human and a little more physical; a metaphor for a place undergoing accelerated change and perhaps a little cultural dilution at the same time, too. I can only hope that feeling of authenticity doesn’t eventually disappear entirely. Note: no double images were used here; merely strategic reflections. MT

This series was shot with a Hasselblad H5D-50C and H6D-50C, various lenses and post processed with Photoshop and Lightroom Workflow III.

    Utterly stunning images, Ming. Other than this.. I’m speechless.. 🙌

  6. Fabulous, as usual. I am always impressed with your post processing. You achieve a consistent look and feel of the images even though they are shot under a variety of lighting conditions (apparently mid-day through evening). (I believe this is called color grading in the video world.)

  7. these reflections are absolutly perfect and poetics.

    OMG – well those shots certainly blew me away, Ming !!!! You’ll have to curate them yourself – I’ve been through them over and over, and CANNOT decide which one I like best !!!!
