Shape of Sand

The Indian name for Antelope Canyon is Tsé bighánílíní, which means ‘the place where water runs through rocks. Handful of sand tossed into a sun ray by our Navajo guide sparkled and twisted in the air creating mystical shapes. Finer sand dust lingered creating vague shifting shapes as if playing a strange charade with us trying to see some recognizable shapes in swirls of sparkling particles.

Some portrait work for a change

Recently I saw quite a few ads on Instagram and Facebook offering Photoshop presets capable of turning any portrait into a piece of art. So, I decided to give it a try and see how hard it will be to achieve the same look and feel as shown on those ads without magic presets. I have looked through my files and found few shots I have done for my friends in past years. So I got the raw files and went ahead with editing. I have spent about 15 min on each edit. Let me know what you think.
