Michael ONeill Wedding Portrait Fine Art Photographer Long Island New York
Collectible Fine Art Photography Nelson Las Vegas Nevada
This image was captured in Nelson, Nevada...a historic "Ghost Town" located about 60 miles out in the desert from Las Vegas, NV. A photographer friend of mine and I ventured out into the pitch black barren desert landscape to find our way to the location before sunrise. As the sun rose over the desert long shadows were cast along the ground from the vintage truck in the foreground. After taking this antique-looking photograph I processed it using a modern HDR (High Dynamic Range) technique to give it an "Etched" look. The title "Etched In Time" was given to the image and it has garnered a fair amount of critical acclaim including an award in the Illustrative category of the PPGNY (Professional Photographers of Greater New York) image competition. More importantly, my girlfriend loves the picture so it actually hangs in the dining room of our own home. Many of my fine art photography works are being widely recognized as collectible and of investment quality status. My images are offered for acquisition in a number of prestigious art galleries and hang in numerous private collections worldwide. They are also available artist-direct. The value of my photographic editions are sure to rise in years to come. If you appreciate my photographic art you would do well to invest in your favorite pieces now.
