I'm back from my first post covid trip - an adventure in Yosemite.

I missed a week along the way but will try to make up the night sky assignment I missed though I'm terrible at that.

This week's assignment: Golden Spiral. I learned something important. Lightroom (and probably ACR) have a variety of compositional overlays within the crop tool.

This is a shot of my grandson Jack, who was a hero in his first national park trip and first wilderness adventure. He's perched atop a stump from the edge of Sequoia NP, working on his Junior Ranger project book with the help of a stuffed deer. I will edit this one further for color and such before I print and frame it for him.
very cool - I thought that stump was big, but when I saw Jack, I knew HOW BIG! Nice composition and inspiring fun shot.

Theme: People in an Image -

Well that ain't hard! Of late I've been playing a lot with photos of my 6 year old grandson's little league games. They are all terrible photos because the chain link fence cannot be avoided. It is too tall to get over, and the links are too small to shoot through. So I've been fiddling - mitigating the fat wire lines with editing & shooting with different lenses and settings. In this one I extracted Luke, then blurred the background, then masked it with a gradient to preserve some detail in the lower third, then put it all back together and ran it through some old film/camera emulators in Analog Pro. Then did some color grading and texture work. Still not great but fun and less distracting to look at.
Baseball Card ready! S-
I printed two for him and framed them for his room, which is beginning to look like a haphazard baseball museum.

Thank you! Now fill us in on your current adventure and show us some pictures oh please.

All the people were in Yosemite Valley, so we went to upper Yosemite and Sequoia, which we shared with only a handful of people. It helped that Yosemite is limiting day visitors too.

Theme - means of transport

I dont have much transport going on at the country house, so I made a photo of the shiny new utility cart we spent the day putting together. We will use it to "transport" gravel and dirt and bricks and sticks around the old farm to mitigate the various troubles one must address in such a place.
