Elm Moon

Last week I spun "Moon" which was a joke since not only am I terrible at moon photography, but we had overcast and rain all week. One morning at my insomniac hour I thought to check it and found the moon visible so took a few shots. It was only visible through the elm tree out front, so that's what I got. Elm Moon, 2 shots, same everything except for focal point, blended in PS and converted in Silver Efex. Handheld, barefoot, without my contacts. I like to make things unduly complicated.

I apologize, I missed this one from last week.

I have discovered over the last couple of years that moon images ARE difficult to achieve and at most, all appear to look the same. Unless ..... it's processed in such a way to have a unique impact, which is what you have here, Minnie. Yes, it's just a picture of the moon, but your approach to obtaining the shot to the processing is what makes this one ..... well, somewhat different from what I have seen in the past. A job well done indeed !!! I absolutely love it.

Thanks Dave. One good thing about these 52 projects is that they push us to try weird stuff, and sometimes something works out.

ARCHITECTURE

Well, there's only a couple of pieces of architecture on my mind: the old house I'm redoing and the house my eldest son is preparing to sell. So, I'm posting one of each-

Exterior of the old house in Sallis, done up in a fanciful sketch/photo composite

Interior shot of my son's masterpiece, a 1952 mid century modern that he did a renovation worthy of those on the television shows, keeping the best features and restructuring those that closed in/cramped up the function.
I like the juxtaposition of the two and how they reflect the differences and the sameness! Well done! S-

Here's last week's offering on Doors - in the 1700s the Dewars family had a liquor business in Jamaica and built themselves a mansion near Montego Bay. It is now a hotel and a popular party/wedding venue. There's stuff here with the seals of Ferdinand and Isabella still visible. So here's a pair of Dewars doors...

Frivolously edited of course.

I'm a bit behind, and will get my next "assignment", slow shutter up soon maybe..

Missed all ya'll, but may still be a bit scarce this week.

Here's my failed effort at doing something unusual with a slow shutter.

Blend of 3 photos of a band performance on last week's cruise, two of which are very slow shutter shots, and added another OOF shot of same scene just for bokeh dots and other anomalies of light. I don't like it, but since this is a learning exercise I'm posting it anyway.
