14 years of deviantART!

Journal Entry: Thu Aug 7, 2014, 11:41 AM
I can't believe that deviantART has been around for 14 years and that I've been here almost that whole time.  My first account was created 13 years ago and I've since transitioned through two other usernames (before changes were possible) to land here.  I still maintain two accounts, this one to share my own art and another account that has 12 years of history of favorites and followed artists from over the years that I still use for that purpose.  There's nothing else like it on the Internet and it's been cool to see it grow over time.

When I first started it was mostly to follow other artists (I was taking a break from photography for a few years) and found great inspiration here that ultimately led me back to the camera to create my own art again.

Happy birthday deviantART and here's hoping for many more to come!

Sea World San Diego Fireworks by trevor-w
Sea World San Diego Fireworks
During the summer Sea World in San Diego has fireworks every night.  This image is from the show on July 3, 2014.

Blended from two separate images in Photoshop.  The first taken just after sunset to get that beautiful blue glow in the sky and the lights on the Sea World tower (they turn the lights off during the fireworks).  The second is of the fireworks and was taken about 50 minutes later.

Great Shot. Love how you caught the Midway. You have a great touch with HDR--La Jolla Cove too. (Also from SD, and welcome).

Thanks! I really love the more subtle uses of HDR. My Unconditional Surrender photo is about as extreme as I like to go with HDR effects.

Yeah, San Diego really is a pretty city. I've been here 12 years now and can't imagine living anywhere else now.
