Torii Gate - Wicassett Interpretation

Shot from the dock below in Wicaseett ME, and had a notion to try this with it. A fair amount of manipulation but nothing added or removed, just fiddled with mainly in NIK Analog old camera plugin . Ideas?

Re: Minnie's 2020 52 Project

Theme: Emotion It has rained for 29 days out of the past 30 so I'm short on new outdoor photos. Therefore I recruited my youngest grandson to help with this assignment, since he and I have been having discussions about recognizing feelings. I asked him to name four different feelings that he experie...

Re: Sunrise zoom capture

From normal viewing distance it gives a point of focus to the image....but then it's not clear enough to know what it is soooo I dunno what to tell you. The color and smoothness of clouds and water are rather pleasant though. I was of mixed mind. I liked what the zoom capture did to the sky and col...

Beautiful birdies. It is hard to believe they fly around freely. We have nothing like these birds here, except in cages. Love the DOF, sharpness and bokeh on the first one.

Re: Sunrise zoom capture

one option is to paint out the yellow distraction - and perhaps a backlit rowboat and the 13 year old girl captain in the foreground going into the light. :) I’ll try painting out the swoop first... BTW the chickadee looks great printed on Red River Aurora Natural..will show you when I take it to i...

Sunrise zoom capture

I don't remember whether I was zooming in or zooming out for this particular capture, but it's pretty much as it was taken. Of course there's all kinds of funky stuff along the bridge, the long zig zaggy swoop of the car lights and the reflectors that are on each post. I left all of it there because...

"If your pictures aren't good enough, you aren't close enough". How close is too close? I took the hint and left. --Bob Has she protected her husband? Has she murdered him?

Re: reconstruction

I have never got used to the tablet though I've had one for years and make stabs at it ever so often. I'm hopeful that I may acquire some facility with the ipad and pencil with painting, especially now that photoshop has ported for the ipad. Granted, it doesn't have all its parts functional yet, but...

Re: Minnie's 2020 52 Project

I do try. It's the only discipline I have that keeps me remembering where the camera is in times that my muse has fled me.
