My Seven Super Shots! (part deux)

Remember this?

Well, I’m reviving it. For those of you who are unacquainted, this is a tag post back in 2012 where you present a super shot for each of the seven given categories. However, mine are going to be super-duper shots. 🙂

This was my first My Seven Super Shots!

A photo take took my breath away…

I submitted this photo to a contest run by a tour company, and it won! This view was what welcomed us at the start of our hike in Kamikochi. I could stay there for a long time, even just looking at that view right there. It is just so pretty. Definitely a view that rendered me speechless.

A photo that makes me laugh or smile …

The dog gave life to the statue. I love how in sync they are on this picture as if they have a working relationship. They look like they are on watch. Or maybe they really were posing for the cameras because the house do get a good number of visitors. I took this shot from an outrageously weird house in Venice Beach – https://thesophomoreslump2.com/2014/09/09/el-bordello-alexandra-in-venice-ca.

A photo that makes me dream …

This is a hard choice as I had a lot of photos to pick from. I equate vast ocean with traveling, so that’s dreamy for me. I could easily drift off just looking at this picture. I’m really just making excuses. I decided to pick this because it’s a personal favorite of mine. 🙂

A photo that makes me think …

This great whale shark is gigantic! I remember my reaction upon seeing it. I was in great awe. This really is a photo that makes me wonder. I love how the people gives a gauge on big the whale really is. This Kuroshio Sea Tank is located at Churaumi Aquarium in Okinawa, Japan.

A picture that tells a story…

chania (30)

This photo was from a very public spot, Downtown Chania in Crete, Greece. I’m always been hesitant to take pictures of people, but I’m so happy that I braved in taking this shot. The image definitely raises a lot of questions that don’t really beg for answers. All I really see is that it really shows so much love. It’s a very romantic scene.

A picture that made my mouth water …

Mykonos, Greece may not be my most recommended places, but we did have a fine Italian dining while there in Little Italy.

A picture that I am most proud of …

This is from the same spot in Kamikochi as the first photo. On my post of Kamikochi, there is a similar but more close-up picture. Although I actually like this one better. I’ve always been fond on taking pictures where my subjects are on the side and not centered. To me, a more accomplished shot is one that could change in a moment or in an instant, but you were able to capture it. I think this is one of my most accomplished shots.

Here are my some pictures I took into considerations:

I am tagging the first one million bloggers who will see this post. If you are the 1,000,001th, don’t even bother me to try making the cut. I think it would be neat to revive this and see other bloggers’ responses. So, if you do decide to show your seven super shots, please do let me know.

  1. I can see why you were “most proud.” And the photo that tells a story – well captioned, Rommel.

    I’m still trying to get a book to you. Need a postal mailing address. Email me if you’re still interested. 🙂

  2. Your choices are exquisite Rommel! Congratulations on winning the photo contest. And that photo of the wood duck is gallery quality. 🙂

  3. All great photos and while I do see the greatness in your award-winning photo of your hike in Kamikochi, the photo that makes me sigh is your photo that “makes you dream” as it has the same effect on me. Cheers!

  4. Well I am accepting the tag – great idea R!
    And the photos here have been a great way to start my day!
    I am up (not too early) but after this 20 minutes of quiet and coffee – I have a busy next ten hours – not too bad – but errands and many little things – so it was s treat –
    Also – the text with photos always help me get more from the photographer – and your professional work is outstanding for composition and probably lots of other things (like rule of thirds, harmony, etc)
    A couple specific notes:
    The couple shot on the bench – changes completely when you see the suitcase- to me at least – the feeling of goodbye is in the air (maybe?) with that romance….
    I caught that your best meal in that Greek city was in their Little Itsly – ha! Very funny…. But it is what it is….
    The surfer silhouette is also outstanding and well – the color and vibrancy here has said a very good morning to moi – and so I thank you amigo!
    Peace

Don't be shy to say hi.
