Stretching Across

Stretching Across

Another from Brookside Gardens that I struggled to edit. This one admittedly turned out better to me but I still sat there and stared at it for awhile. I have noticed that I have been into reflections lately. No real idea why. I have figured out how to edit them to give them a lot of detail without masking in the image from above. It basically comes down to dodging and burning and gradient adjustments. No real big secret to…

Forest Path

It’s a bit muddy after a rain but it’s a quick way to get to other parts of the park. I setup up the shot because I really liked the light coming in from the side.

I was right up against a barbed wire fence with my tripod shooting over the farms field. There was much cursing…

More Spring Flowers

I’m clearing out the back log of flower and landscape stuff. Shockingly I have other stuff I shot as well. It’s nice to have a cushion to work with. Plus the flowers one day and the landscapes the next gives me a break from straight flowers which I can quickly edit. I will launch into a diatribe concerning Lightroom which is a great tool but Adobe wants it to be good enough. If you really want to edit photos you…
