“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

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.
These skillful photographers were able to capture the drama and ambiance of the images presented here thru reflective photography. Most reflective surface like mirrors, rain, glass windows, water and even our eyes can transform something fairly simple to something dramatic or nonfigurative. One of the ideal places to take wonderful images with reflections is on landscape and various nature sceneries. Whether via the blue sky is reflected in the pond or a bird reflected in a lake, nature’s reflections can give some amazing effect and stunning pictures. Shooting reflective scene needs great timing and luck. Now, let’s see some of these breathtaking reflective photography images.
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.
