Departing in 5 hrs to rome and getting the evening plane to Bucarest around 8 ish...
thanks again for yr words, take care all of u, and never stop shooting:P


Indredible images!! Welcome to DT and keep the good work!!


Welcome to dreamstime!!! Great shots, gorgeous model! I wish you much success.


Welcom to DT. Your first three photos are technically great. You obviously know lighting. One suggestion for you is to leave more space around your models. Cropping so tight limits the use of the photos. Leaving more space gives designers more options. Wishing you continued success.


Yes you are right, you are going to Transilvania. If you want to "hunt" for Dracula portrait, you must go to Bran Castle (near Brasov). Here is a photo of Bran castle made by Achilles: https://www.dreamstime.com/bran-castle-romania-rimage5167153-resi902269
And here is what Wikipedia can tell you about Dracula's Castle:
P.S. Don't forget to bring some garlic whit you :)


Thanks for the suggestion....I hope to have the time to do so...Im staying there for easter ,ll be bk nxt tuesday.... ill try to visit as many places as i possibly can...
maybe i get a portrait photo of dracula...im going to transilavania right? :))



You should try also Sibiu, it's near Brasov, and was the Culture Capital of Europe, an old town whit a lot of historical landmarks.
Most of my pictures are from Switzerland but I have 3 from Romania (Valiug Dam and Alba Iulia's Cathedral)


thanks brother....i hope all the best to you too...right now im not too lucky with submissions, lots of rejects....but sometimes i love to think that who checks the files must be kinda of drunk....:))
great work btw:))


Grazie Asyan:)) Love all your outdoors/landscaping work...is that Romania? Ill depart 2rw afternoon for bucarest and moving direction Brasov , Fagaras ....im sure im gonna like it:)))


Great photos & wish you many sales :)
