Hyperrealist Landscape Photography by Michael Tobis

Ugliest Building, SF CA

I believe the vaguely filthy looking mesh draped over the building is supposed to be decorative.

This is a federal building, so if you pay tax in America you have invested in this architecture. Compare the elegant Deco skyscraper in the background...

I take landscape photos that seem to me revealing of something or other.
Often I try to make them look sort of like oil paintings or watercolors.
So far the only tool I have used besides a camera is iPhoto.
So far I have avoided any retouching or other spot effects.
I often turn "noise reduction" way up to deliberately remove small details.
So far they are all taken in North America.
They usually come out sort of hyperrealistic, but sometimes impressionistic.
Sometimes they come out lousy, but I won't post those.

Best viewed on Apple LCD hardware with factory settings.
