Architectural Travels – Part One

Architectural Travels – Part One

I rarely have time to do series of images. This is mainly due to the fact that editing takes considerable amount of time. With me having some time off I went ahead and completed a series I have had in mind for some time, all the architectural shots I have taken over the course the last year or so and publish them in cohesive sets. I broke up all the images into what I consider sets of similar characteristics. This…

Gone Fishing

Gone Fishing

This one is from the archives and I¬†published it before. You can see the original here. I was in my HDR everything phase and it showed. The image was crap. I was digging around for some other images for Instagram to publish there and I came across this one again. With me traveling to Florida where I took this image I might as well republish it. This time I did not HDR it to death in some attempt to prove…

Fallen and Broken

Fallen and Broken

Finally home after 6 glorious (not) nights in a hotel 15 minutes from my apartment. So close yet so far away. It’s good to be back on my own editing¬†rig. While I had use of a 23″ monitor it was a pain to use. So the first thing I did after dumping my luggage was hook up my laptop again. This is an older photo I found while looking for some other images. No idea why I never published it….

Monochromatic Blooms

Monochromatic Blooms

I didn’t want to use flowers in the title. Blooms sounds more artful? Plus some people will find what I did sacrilege because I took perfectly good looking flowers from color to monochromatic. The reason for the monochromatic conversion was that there was something wrong with the images in color. With the conversion to monochrome you get a lot more detail out of the flower and you see the underlying patterns that color tends to obscure. I tried to keep…

Secret Garden – Part 5

Secret Garden – Part 5

Wrapping up the flower photos for those post To be honest after editing this many flower images in one post it wore me out. I am not a fan of similar edits unless its a paying job and even then I could live without them. There is a monotony about a similar style that makes you want to just give it over with. So if the images start to degrade assume its just me having enough of looking at flowers….

Secret Garden – Part 4

Secret Garden – Part 4

Flower warning in effect. The next two days will be nothing but flowers as I finished the edits. I don’t think I will ever do that many flowers in one sitting again. That was torture on a grand scale. I do like how the flash worked to really allow me to get the details out of the flowers. While not always perfect I was able to achieve a decent shutter speed and have light. I also think not using a…

Secret Garden – Part 3

Secret Garden – Part 3

Another round of flower photos! I would write about them more but I honestly don’t remember them much as I edited them all last week to have everything ready for posting. I did this so that when I returned from Costa Rica I didn’t have to rush an edit job. I’ll return to more normal editing tomorrow now that I am home on my larger screens and usual editing tools. Enjoy!

Thai Rising – Part 1

Thai Rising – Part 1

Since I am in Costa Rica and not the biggest fan on editing off a 13″ Macbook screen I have pre-edited all the images. I’m going to split these up into two posts then return with more flowers for Tuesday. I personally like tall buildings. Don’t know why but I do. There isn’t anything overly special about Thai buildings. Some have a bit of an Asian feel to them but for the most part are typical resort style hotels and…

Secret Garden – Part 2

Secret Garden – Part 2

With a break from flowers with some architectural stuff I feel I can attempt some more flowers! So I return to my secret garden or the US National Botanical Gardens. Considering I was stuck behind a Chinese tour group with photo permits for tripods I guess its not that secret. I have encountered Chinese tour groups before in Thailand and they are serious about their gear. I was genuinely impressed by the tripod permits they had. They are not that…

Sunset Over The Potomac

Sunset Over The Potomac

I was on the Washington DC side of the Potomac shooting towards the Virginia side. I really liked how the clouds looked so I setup for the shot and fired away. This is HDR but more subtle. One of the things I have done with my shooting regardless of cameras is just take 3 images with two stops in either direction. This gives me a lot of latitude work with I do the merge into HDR. I did add a…
