This is not a Photoshop. It’s not an optical trick. And it’s not an illustration. It’s just a simply great photo taken near the Linevo village, in the Volgograd region of Russia.
A wild firestorm went through the village and its surroundings, destroying 80 houses. Nobody knows what was the origin, but at least the phone lines are still working.

Our second image comes from Isaac Gutiérrez Pascual, who was probably one of the luckiest guys on earth, who was bequeathed with this captivating view.
The Moon, Venus, the clouds, and the birds dancing under the lights and shadows of a perfect sunset… So perfect, in fact, that it feels otherworldly, like an sci-fi illustration. Againt, there aren’t Photoshop filters or HDR or airbrushing here.
No Photoshop adjustment work, no HDR toning or compositing of any kind. Just the usual value tweaking while importing the RAW photography from the camera. The magic was not in the camera or the software, just in the skies of the beautiful city of Córdoba, Spain. “It was pretty simple. I took it with my Canon 5D and Canon EF70-200 2.8 IS lenses. I measured the light with a Sekonik light meter, and set the camera at ISO 320, f/5.6 and 1/320. I imported it through RAW and that was it” he says.
