First, a water release at Hoa Binh dam (a normal event, no danger to the local photographer)



Second, winter at Chantilly castle.

Chapel of Bones, Evora, Portugal -- B&W overlaid on color image, cut through B&W layer using mask to reveal the colored rose from lower layer.
[This place was pretty surreal before I took the picture, LOL!]

15 second exposure @f/32 at twilight to create the ethereal, foamy effect of the waves
