The Magic

Another good day in Post Processing. I took advantage of a rainy day today to dig into photos from my last trip. I love PP, but it does take time. A few hours sorting, selecting and editing. I’m trying to be more disciplined about selecting and editing only the best.
I found this one from an early morning shoot on the coast in Acadia park, Maine. I was trying slow shutter speed techniques to blur the waves. IMG_9399.JPG
Rainy day, not a great sky. The sky in this image is a replacement. I’m not making excuses. The white, blown out sky in the original was lousy. I’m there taking pictures, I live in Houston…not likely to return for better weather…fix it. Simple.

Keep Getting Sidetracked!

Vancouver CompositeI’m trying to sort through all my photos on my hard drive to identify which ones I want on my web site.  I guess my attention span isn’t the best, because I keep coming across images that I think have “real potential”.  Potential for what, you ask?  Potential to play with, I answer.  I found an image I took of Vancouver as our cruise ship arrived.  It was stitched together from 6 images shot with my Nikon D7000… no great art, just having fun.  Well on second thought, maybe I could make it great art!   There is one “slight” problem with the composite.  We arrived in the early morning as can be seen with sunlight hitting the buildings…from the east (where it normally rises).  However I wanted some color behind the city for the composite, so we’ve got a sunset going on in the background while sunlight hits the city from the foreground.  I guess that’s called nature’s fill light.  ..
