Amazing Animal Photography by Mark Vincent Müller

Last year, I posted about 28 Examples of Excellent Animal Photography Shots which really get tons of praise from photography community online. Today, I want to show you another animal photography by Mark Vincent Müller.

“Reduce to the max” may be one of the best advertising claims ever (SMART car). It also symbolizes for me the essence of what “makes” a great image. Colour, light and composition are everywhere. It is our job, so to speak, to take the abundance and compress it into a striking and memorable visual moment. Based in Switzerland, I have been travelling the world to find unspoiled nature and wildlife. I hope you find my portfolio inspiring and justice to the wonderful world we live in. Cheers” – Mark Vincent Müller

Photographing animals specially from wildlife can be a big challenge and requires great patience, determination and understanding of different behaviors of animal. Mark Vincent is truly a master of it. Let’s view now some of the amazing photographs by this passionate photographer from Volketswil, Switzerland.

23 Photos Beautifully Done with Selective Coloring

In today’s post, I want to showcase some beautiful images done thru selective coloring method. One effect that I would like to do is to change a colored image into black & white, while keeping certain parts of the image in color. Color is such a powerful element of an image, particularly when it comes to expressing emotion and attracting attention. That powerful element is amplified when color is used as an accent in a colorless picture. Selectively coloring a photo can draw the viewer’s attention to the part of the image specially using bright colors like red, green and blue will be selected to stand out. I hope you like these selective color images.

20 Illusional Droste Effect Images that will Twist Your Mind

First, I want to greet all the readers of Pixzii a Happy New Year, I hope you all have a prosperous new year. In today’s post I’m going to show you some really cool images done in “Droste effect.” “Droste effect,” is named after a 1904 package of Droste brand cocoa. The Droste effect illustrates a smaller version of itself in a place where a similar photograph would realistically be expected to show. Only in hypothesis could this go on without end, but virtually it will go on only as long as the resolution of the image permits, which is relatively short, since each cycle of repetition is exponentially diminish the image’s size.

A perfect example of the Droste effect can be simply produced by placing two mirrors in front of each other. Another technique would be to shoot one’s own television with a video camera, while showing the output of the video camera on the same television.Let’s view now some of these awesome droste effect images.

Chinese New Year co-insides with the global celebration of Valentine’s Day so it will begin on February 14, 2010 and ends on February 2, 2011.The Tiger is the third sign in the cycle of Chinese Zodiac, which consists of 12 animal signs. The Year of the Tiger is a sign of bravery and associated with the earthly branch symbol. This brave and blistering fighter is honored by the ancient Chinese as the sign that wards off fire, thieves and ghosts, the three major tragedy of a houseold:. According to the well-known Feng Shui Grand Master Tan Khoon Yong, 2010 will not be a good year for all of the 12 zodiacs.

Davy Jones: Digitally Painted by Tiago Hoisel

Tiago Hoisel has an awe-inspiring digital painting portfolio packed with a huge selection of subjects. I want to show you one of my favorite paintings he did. As you can see, it’s a cartoon version of the famous character from the movie Pirates of the Caribbean, Davy Jones. Tiago name this painting “This has never happened to me before”

This is a cartoon version of one of my favorites movie character, it’s a personal work that I made just for a study. I painted all with just one brush standard and at the end I applied some paper textures to make a little dirty. Throughout the process I made some changes on the first draw, on the position of the legs and on the hands to make enrich the idea.

Don’t forget to visit Tiago Hoisel to see more of his cool digital paintings.
