This is the sky wheel at National Harbor in Maryland. I spent the last week working on the opposite side of the river and could see it so I revisited the images I took earlier and found this one. I have seen skywheels in a lot of places I have traveled to. I’ll let everyone in on a dirty secret. I have never actually been onĀ one. Not because I have a fear of heights or whatever. I’m basically too cheap…

Clouds Over The Potomac

Clouds Over The Potomac

This is a shot from National Harbor of the clouds over the Potomac River. You can see the Woodrow Wilson Bridge in the background. I shot this last year and was playing click around the photo library game. No idea why I didn’t edit it but I didn’t When I saw the sky I was like cool. Time to do an edit of this and see where things fall out. This is a single image HDR that I created using…

Two Views One Wheel

Two Views One Wheel

This is the skywheel at the National Harbor in Maryland. When I did this set I remember taking a lot of images of it because it is the most dominating feature. Lit up at night it was very cool so I took a ton of shots of it. Editing wise I’m not sure what I did. The one problem is that when I do pre-edits I forget what I did but I know I masked in a bunch of stuff….

Two On The Rocks

Two On The Rocks

These images were shot at the National Harbor and I just got around to editing them for. No idea why I never published them but I finally did. They seemed to work together so instead of doing one at a time I’ll post them together. Editing wise I went back to masking in layers and so on. I have been doing fairly clean edits so with these images I went a little wild and made the world look like I…

Wheel In An Angry Sky

Wheel In An Angry Sky

I return from the Portland, Oregon images and back to the National Harbor, Maryland images. Just to take a break from Portland stuff since I’m sitting on a healthy back catalogue from my various adventures. I kinda lost the plot with this image. I was layering filters on top of filters with more filters and realized I lost the purpose of the image. So I reset and tried again from my base image in Photoshop. An important tip on why…

Ducks at Dusk

Ducks at Dusk

This one is from the National Harbor with the sun just about set over the Potomac River. The ducks just happened to be there along with the helicopter in the sky. I was originally going to remove the helicoptor but it looked cool so I left it. No idea anymore what I did when I edited this. I am sure I masked in some stuff to bring out details but when you edit so far in advance you often forget…

Big Wheel Keep On Turning

Big Wheel Keep On Turning

Another of the skywheel in National Harbor. It was such a dominate feature in the landscape around National Harbor that it was impossible not to shoot it. Plus it looks cool lit up at night! For editing this I know I had to play a bit more because I moved the ISO up to 400 to freeze the wheel motion slightly. While that doesn’t sound like a lot, on a longer exposure it does increase noise. I am sure I…

Spinning Bullseye

Spinning Bullseye

This is the skywheel at National Harbor and the biggest reason I went back to National Harbor so I could capture it at night and lit up. I wasn’t disappointed with the result. Since this was edited sometime last week and in a chain of edits I was doing to stay ahead of the editing curve while I am traveling. I know I ran a few filters through it to bring out the lights on the wheel. It’s a cool…

There Be Pirates

There Be Pirates

I didn’t plan on publishing this image today or even editing it. I was going through the library and saw it and was like cool! There is a pirate ship in front of a giant wheel! This was another shot from the National Harbor in Maryland. The pirate ship is run by a company called Urban Pirates and you can take cruises along the Potomac River. Apparently they have water cannons on the boat so would make for interesting times…

Flotsam & Jetsam

Flotsam & Jetsam

Got a bit bored with the landscape stuff so I needed a change of pace and these two images fit the bill. I am guessing I took these at low tide which is why I could see at much stuff as I did so I just aimed the camera towards the various bits and pieces that are on the shower when the water is low. I knew when I took these images they were going to be monochrome. I know…
