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…

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…

Vertical Rising

Vertical Rising

I had a tip on a park located about 30 minutes away from where I was staying in Fort Myers. The park was called Lakes Regional Park so I headed there around sunset so I could get some evening shots over the lake. One of the problems is that the West view was blocked by trees and housing so I was a bit late for the really good sunset photos but I made do and ended up shooting for a…

Sunset In Southwest Florida

Sunset In Southwest Florida

This is the riverfront in Fort Myers, Florida. I had just parked the car and was walking towards the river walk to get some shots and just saw the trees in silhouette with the sun in the background and the person walking along. Since I was already setup on the tripod I just took the shot. Honestly not a lot of editing going on here. I just did the image in low key. Then threw in a hue/saturation adjustment. Just…

Sunset On The Caloosahatchee

Sunset On The Caloosahatchee

This was shot at some little park on the Caloosahatchee River. It’s usually crowded with people enjoying the river and the park. Luckily the shore wasn’t being fished so I setup my tripod and took a few shots of the sun setting in the distance. I used my 15mm Voigtlander to get this shot. I really wanted the covered pier on the right to be in the frame. I also wanted to capture both shores because the sun reflecting on…

3 Friends In The Evening

3 Friends In The Evening

Hello from Fort Myers, Florida where I am based for the next week. A couple days ago was the first time I got out to shoot. My first shoot was interrupted by a torrential downpour which is common in Florida this time of the year. My second shoot that evening perfect. The biggest for the night shoot was mosquitoes using my body as an all you can eat buffet. Oh, and the occasional heat lightening while carrying a tripod! Wandered…

After The Ceremony

After The Ceremony

No, I am not becoming a wedding photographer. Bridezilla is a real and out there. I have shot a wedding but it’s not really my thing. I stumbled on to this scene while visiting the National Harbor. This is the dock area outside the Gaylord National. I have seen a few wedding photographers working there and we always give the nod of a fellow photographer and I carefully avoid walking into their shot or acting as a distraction. This wedding…

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…

Masts At Sunset

Masts At Sunset

I likely should not have edited this photo but I will admit to being a bit emotionally attached to it because in my mind it looked cool. I just liked how the ships masts work with the setting sun. The other little bits in the photo catching the light also drew me to it. They all can’t be winners and sometimes you go with an image just because you like it. This is not HDR believe it or not. I…

Shadow On The Potomac

Shadow On The Potomac

I almost didn’t edit this photo. After working a 12 hour day and having a blinding headache I just wanted to pass out and go to sleep when I returned to my abode. However, after a dinner with my staff after a successful project and walking home in a brisk snow pelting me in the face I sat in front of the computer and carried on! I saw the shadow the cloud cast on the shadow and thought it looked…
