Wonderful ‘Smeared Skies’ Images by Matt Molloy

These beautiful photos of the sky were designed by putting pictures of the same landscape together by Photographer Matt Molloy. Usually picture putting is used either to make HDR pictures or to improve level of area of the photographic camera or a time-lapse video clip. Mr Molloy used the same strategy, at the same time in a different way, to generate extra common pictures of the sky that looks like smudges or sweep swings.
Matt Molloy, describes his methods to PetaPixel:
To make these ‘photo stacks’, I first shoot a timelapse, taking a photo every 5 seconds or so. (Settings differ depending on the subject and lighting conditions). I then merge several photos into one image using Photoshop. I start with the first image from the timelapse as a normal photo and then blend the rest of them with the ‘lighten’ blending mode. This only adds things that are brighter than what was in the first photo, and so you can see things like the paths of stars as they move across the sky. (The movement of the stars is actually from the earth’s rotation). 
I think it’s an interesting way to observe time. You can see a time frame of several hours in one image, something our eyes can’t do naturally.

The Diving Horses of Atlantic City

For nearly half a century, Atlantic City, in New Jersey, United States, was home to an attraction almost too fantastical to believe—an apparently fearless horse with a young woman on its back would leap off a tower some 40 feet high into a pool of water below. The stunt took place at Atlantic City's popular venue Steel Pier, where trained horses took the plunge up to four times a day and seven days a week.

Staggering Photos Capture the Otherworldly Beauty of Antarctica's Icebergs

Tokyo-based nature and untamed life photographic artist Martin Bailey catches the powerful excellence of Antarctica in this enthralling photograph arrangement. While the frozen continent is home to numerous seals and penguins, Bailey decided to photo the clearing scene without any indications of life, rather concentrating on the merciless and ethereal excellence of 1,000-year-old ice shelves and glaciers.
