I Spent 15 Years Photographing Cities In Water Drops

The story starts 15 years ago with a photo from my window. I kept this technique and photos away from public as I wanted to show it to the World first. And what a better way to do it with the greatest city in the World, New York!

Some of the photos are on film, but most of them are digital, but it is a macro photography technique, not a Photoshop, that is why it has flaws in sharpness and a lot of blurs.

But that is something that gives some kind of artistic touch to it. I need to say that I was a bit lazy to do it earlier, but I tend to do this kind of photos when I go to some new place in the World. So I will try to update it on my next journeys.

We have searched out Creative Light in Belgrade for our start-up project and found Mr.Stojancevic to be an absolute professional in each regard. Nation Geographic was absolutely right we first hand agree. His commitment to his obligation went without question. His selective style is what set him apart form other professionals used. At least with his results we reached our goals quickly and under budget. Best regards on your quest and remember only the imbeciles were laughing at the masters and the greats in their craft. After all, many comparable's that all competition disregards. ie; there was a secrete to the Porsche 911 Model vs the VW Beetle and yet today as they continue to co-exist, they remain nothing alike due to those disputed details. ( Secretes, as you wish). Agreed. Keep up the remarkable works. SHARE-5782...d99218.jpg SHARE-5782957d99218.jpg

Mr. Stojancevic: These represent a brilliant idea, wonderfully executed. Bravo! It's (relatively) easy to emulate great ideas, but not so easy to start them and sustain the skill. I think I can see what 'secret' is involved, and I'm going to try it, but your example is marvelous.

To all the people who made negative comments here - Judging by your crappy attitudes you must think your work is so much better — and yet you failed to provide us a link go to go see it. Or does it even exist? If you don't like someone's work, keep your lousy attitude to yourself. This man made a considerable effort and massive time commitment to pursue an idea. What have you done lately?

The problem with this is that you already have to be familiar with these landmarks to appreciate what you're looking at. If you've never been to Belgrade then those images will mean nothing becaus the pictures on there own are not impressive. This guys has been lucky enough to travel the world and see amazing places though. Just not sure why he thinks people who haven't seen these places would want to squint at them in a drop of water.

Interesting, cool and unique style. Very creative, but I would cut that BS title that is intentional to drag more views I guess, but could be without it. No secrets in macro shots, maybe you;re using glycerin to get shots in it instead of water and it looks more like acrylic sheets than glass, but your unique style is enough to make it spread.
