Postal Sunset

Postal Sunset

This is another sunset over the Caloosahatchee River in Fort Myers. I was setup on the riverwalk that runs along the river doing one of the many sunset photos I managed to take while I was there. I really liked how the pylons framed the image. There is enough detail there to let your mind fill in the blanks but it’s dark enough that it doesn’t distract from the focal point of the image. Editing wise I went with faux-HDR…

Squeezed Sunset

Squeezed Sunset

This is another one from Millennium Park . I am not sure what direction I was shooting towards. I have a poor sense of direction on a good day. Still, I saw the sunset squeezed between the buildings and I thought it would be a pretty cool image. The lights in each windows in the buildings look like little sunsets themselves as some of them are building images. You get a progressive cooler to warmer feeling as you start at…

Segmented Sky

Segmented Sky

This is one is from Chicago in Millennium Park. It was over an open field where people were set up watching Batman for a free movie night. Seemed rather popular as people were camped out enjoying the movie. You could bring you own food and buy food and drink if you wanted. I scored some Chicago Style pizza that night myself. There is the “roof” of the amphitheater and I liked how the dusk sky was behind with the black…

Dusk On The Gulf

Dusk On The Gulf

This is another from the beach on the Gulf of┬áThailand. I was walking along and only had my phone with me. Knowing that it shot RAW I took a chance and snapped the photo. I published it on Instagram but wanted to give it a try on a higher resolution and with running it through my normal workflow. The phone in question is a OnePlus 2 that I use when I travel. It’s dual sims so I just pop my…

Chicago Lighthouse

Chicago Lighthouse

I shot this off the Navy Pier when I was in Chicago. I’m going to call this a lighthouse but I have no idea if that is the technical term for it. To me it looks like one so I am going to call it a lighthouse. It was really nice to edit photos not being jetlagged or using screens that I’m not used to for the first time in a month. I have my 32″ editing monitor and it…

On To The Gulf

On To The Gulf

This is another random snap I took while I was in Thailand. I was walking along the beach just killing time and saw the trees framing the view and thought it would make a nice image. Since I had my Canon S100 with me I just grabbed it and fired off the shot. This is a common scene on the beaches of the Gulf of Thailand. Personally, never rent a jetski in Thailand because scams are so common they make…

Sense Of Scale

Sense Of Scale

This is one from Thailand! I actually didn’t shoot that much there because I was enjoying myself too much with friends. If you have non-photographer friends it makes it difficult to leave them to go and shoot. They don’t want come with you because it’s rather boring to watch someone take pictures and I prefer to be alone so I don’t have to explain what I am doing or thinking. I did go out for a ride one day and…

Up The Chicago River

Up The Chicago River

I shot this one night while wandering down the Chicago River Walk towards Lake Michigan. In fact, I was walking back to the hotel after shooting for several hours. I wish I had more time to shoot in Chicago but still the images I got are good. Cityscapes like this can be a bit of pain. The image itself was darker to begin with even with me bumping the ISO in the camera to keep exposure times down. I liked…

Silver And Gold

Silver And Gold

This is one of the many bridges over the Chicago River in Chicago. I was on the third level or River Walk as I think it’s called when I took the image. With the light reflections on the water the title came to me while I was editing. I wanted to bring out the details of the bridge while keeping the water looking good. So did some dodging and burning to various areas to bring it all out. Then I…

Ominous Clouds

Ominous Clouds

This was a typical view for me in Panama City when I was shooting there. Nothing but storm clouds rolling in over the city. Coming in from the ocean and then just hanging there over the city. I debated on doing this one in monochrome but it works as color as you get a bit more separation of the city and a better layered effect creating distinct areas in the image. I masked in bits here and there to just…
