A deep look into Hong Kong captured by @lamyock πŸ‘‰πŸ½ ”This shot was taking on the top floor of the building on a window gap in Hong Kong near Quarry Bay. I had to stick out the tripod so to get the reflection of the city. I choose to shoot it horizontally to catch a more dramatic mirror effect of the buildings and roads.” | a7R II | 10mm | F5.6 | 1/5 | ISO 800 | #SonyAlpha


πŸ“·: @danjoyce "Earth is wild, y'all. A perfect evening spent at Glen Canyon National Recreational Area provided this image of the breathtaking rock formations surrounding Lake Powell. I chose a wide lens (FE 16-35 F2.8 GM) to ensure I captured both the interesting patterns of the foreground with the lake and rock formations as a backdrop." | a7R III | 16-35mm f2.8 @ 28 | f/7.1 | 1/100 | ISO 100 | #AICdoesArizona


πŸ“·: @hikester_ " On a recent weekend trip to Olympic National Park, I was driving around in the rain and came across this really dark and mysterious part of the forest. I set up my tripod and grabbed my bright yellow jacket to snap this pic!" 🌲🌲 β€’ β€’ Here's a tip: β€œAlways have a bright colored jacket handy, it’s makes for great subject contrast!" | #SonyAlpha a7R III | 16-35mm | f4.0 |1/160 sec | ISO 8000 |


πŸ“·: @micanthonyhay "As I sat on the edge of this lookout point, I was in awe of the layers that make up the rock formation in front of me. The light wind occasionally caused dust to float about, so I decided to only use one lens all afternoon. I felt confident only using the FE 16-35mm F2.8 GM with my a7R III, because It’s super sharp for a zoom lens. It really allowed me to capture the scene in both landscape and portrait orientation without leaving out any detail." | #SonyAlpha a7R III | 16-35mm GM f2.8 | 35mm | f5.0 | 1/500 | ISO 50 | #AICdoesArizona 🏜 β€’ β€’ It’s also this guy’s birthday, so be sure to give him a big birthday shout below!! Happy Birthday Mic-Anthony!


The Alpha Imaging Collective ( #AlphaCollective) has journeyed to Arizona to capture one of America's most unique terrains. Here is a shot from @andreweggers, who captured the Milky Way skies over the Grand Canyon #AICdoesArizona β€’ β€’ "Here is the Milky Way rising over the south rim of the Grand Canyon. This was taken at about 12:30 am from Mather Point while the wind was howling through the Canyon, which made for super brisk conditions to say the least. This is one shot and I choose to boost the ISO to 10,000 because of how dark the night sky was. The #SonyAlpha a7R III impressed me with how well it handled such a high ISO." | a7R III | 16-35mm GM @ 16 | f/2.8 | 20 sec | ISO 10000 |


πŸ“·: @mydetoxtravel "This shot was taken on my 27th birthday. After 10 days on waiting for good weather I finally decided to hike to the Pouakai tarns. When I arrived the sky was completely covered in clouds. I asked the universe to give me the best birthday gift ever and less than half hours after the sky cleared up completely and the wind dropped. I set up the tripod and took the self-portrait to celebrate this incredible scenery." | #sonyalpha a6000 | 28mm | f/4.5 | 1/500 sec | ISO 500 | #alphacollective πŸŽ‚


πŸ“·: @mikethemathman "Jackson Street Bridge holds one of the most iconic views of Atlanta, GA. I've never personally seen a super long exposure of the city from here, so I thought it would be fun to make one. It was very cloudy while taking this photo but that played to my advantage. The clouds were moving toward my spot on the bridge, and presented a great opportunity to capture them in such a way that they could act as leading lines into the city." | a6300 | 10-18mm f/4 @ 18 | f/11 | ISO 100 | 123 sec | 10-stop ND (Haida) | #SonyAlpha


Light trails courtesy of photographer @nickbellinger captured with the a7R III πŸ”₯ β€’ β€’ "Living in Southern California, I am extremely fortunate enough to have a few locations within a few hours of me that are dark enough to shoot the Milky Way. I've always loved this road and early on in the season, the placement over the road makes for a really nice composition. I love the dynamic range on the a7R III and had no problem shooting at high ISOs with little to no noise." | a7R III | 16-35mm GM | Sky: ISO 6400 f/2.8 25 sec | Ground: ISO 1600 f/2.8 120 sec | Light trails: ISO 1000 f/8 25 sec |


A new week, a new perspective. Here’s a different look at Italy’s famous Tre Cime di Lavaredo, captured by @cameraismyeye πŸ‘€ β€’ β€’ "Shooting famous places like this is one of the most difficult things for me. Instead of just clicking like a tourist, I want to create original art. Creativity is to find a new way of looking at things in your own style. But that's the thing that keeps me going." | a7r | 20mm |


Reflections in Boston captured by photographer @yanan.aurora πŸ‘πŸ½πŸ‘πŸ½ "This building always caught my eye, so when I saw the puddle I had to see the reflection. And I was able to get it thanks to this 16-35mm F2.8 GM wide angle lens." | #SonyAlpha a7R II | 16-35mm F2.8 GM | 16mm | f/5.0 | 1/800 | ISO 400 | #AlphaCollective


πŸ“·: @renzv.arw "I came across this spot during high tide and I knew the movement of the water would compliment this beautiful sunset. The way the colors reflected off the water really brought this shot together." | a7RII | 16-35mm F4 @16mm | F8 | 1 sec | ISO 100 | #SonyAlpha


πŸ“·: @spacebypixel "While roaming the Central District of Cartagena, I found this cool tight street with a puddle. I hunkered down and waited about 10 min for a taxi to come into frame, it took me about 10 tries, but once the image came to life I wasnt disappointed. Quick tip, dont settle for one image of a location, take several images with different elements." | a7s | 55mm | f/2.0 | 1/800 | ISO 50 | #AlphaCollective #SonyAlpha
