The most photographed places of 2013Recently, Instagram released their "Top 10 most photographed places of 2013" which was widely a success among photography lovers. Google however, then decided to one-up them and release a list of the most photographed places in the world!They graphically displayed this through a heatmap they created. The warmer the color the more photographed the location is.The most photographed places of 2013 by StudioLoftMedia
The only difference between the two is that Google includes a list of everywhere. And yes, everywhere. Coming in at number 1, the most photographed place in the world is New York City. Shortly followed by Rome in 2nd and Barcelona in 3rd. But Google doesn't stop there, as I mentioned they mapped everywhere. Don't believe me? Zoom into your home town and see where it ranks. This service works similarly to Google Maps. You can zoom into any location and see a map of the location and that location's rank among other places in the world!
I'm a halfway professional traditional artist as well as a hobby photographer. Constructive criticism is always welcome. I tend to argue against it but in a sense I appreciate it.|
From time to time I paint a commission (almost always got the requests in real life as the pictures look much better in RL anyway) but since I do not have to bring home the bacons by painting, I don't take every job and don't really advertise it anymore. Only if my time allows it and the fee is adequate. But feel free to ask. Maybe you are lucky
My style is not really what people from art schools do because I don't have the time to paint all day and because I learned from a former porcelain painter. Priorities in this job are kind of different.
I'm really lazy in updating so neither my DA nor my own homepage's gallery is ever complete.
I'm not going to upload all my holiday pictures even if they may be nice. The photograps I share on DA are more some hidden gems that I discovered when looking twice through the pictures. I usually edit them a litte (brigthen them up, correcting the contrast and saturation,...)
There are a few groups and artists I watch. If you have some time to kill have a look at them (this is only a selection of them because I cannot post all here)
