Herb Paynter has been in the color management business for around 5 decades. He just got back from a 30 day trip around Europe and will be sharing images from his travels on his blog, The Way Eye Sees It.

For the trip, Herb left the heavy gear at home, opting instead to take along his mirrorless Lumix G5 and MeFOTO Roadtrip tripod. The image above, of a museum in Dresden, is a composite of three images - good thing he had that tripod!

Manfred Barba's Floating Tea Set: MeFOTO Instagram Giveaway Weekly Winner

Our winner this week is @boywithanikon, otherwise known as Manfred Barba, with his surreal image of a floating, self-pouring teapot. In addition to Photoshop, of course, Manfred used a ton of props to bring this shot together, including the ubiquitous fishing line. 

He writes,
"I love that when it comes to photography anything is possible... I take my time and I plan out my shoots, this was a lot of hard work but I was able to make my floating tea set come alive. With a good camera and a sturdy tripod anything is possible. 

And as for my new tripod that I will be receiving, I can't wait to go out exploring and capturing everything in sight. I have a lot of plan and ideas and I can't wait to pull them off with this tripod."

You can find more of Manfred's experiments in composite imagery on flickr, tumblr, and 500px.
