As my 365 project is winding down I find that I’m wanting to experiment more with image processing. I mean, it is digital, I’m not trying to fool anybody that I’m out there shooting Velvia. With the exception of my textured images, most photos I try to process rather straightforward. Occasionally I’ll veer off the chart when I want a different mood or color cast. I’m usually a little bolder and looser when it comes to black and white conversions but I don’t often mess with color photos too much, sticking mostly with contrast and saturation adjustments. I use Topaz Adjust when I want to enhance details and I’ve been using it way more subtle these days then when I first started using it.
But today I thought I would do some images with different processing to whatever I thought fit the image, regardless of “correct” color. I stopped by my favorite park with the lake to see if there was any nature photos to take. With winter approaching things are rather drab around here but I really couldn’t think of anything else to shoot today. Armed with only the DA 18-135 lens, since I’ve been wanting to see what it can do and I can do with it, I focused on a few remaining details by the lake. I hope you like them.
No matter how drab the weather, you seem to find color and beauty of the season and capture it on camera so beautifully. Amazing!!
Thank you. I certainly have had plenty of drab weather to work with lately 😉
That cardinal shot is awesome! I am always impressed by your pictures. Do the numbers on the clothes pins have meaning?
Thanks. I’m not sure about the clothes pins, I just found them there like that (I love discovering weird things). I’m guessing, being near the lake, that they had something to do with fishing.
That is awesome! From the looks of your pictures, you really have an amazing photographic eye. As a photographer, you have to be ready to observe things out of the ordinary and be ready to capture them at any moment. I really admire your ability to do this.
these look great; really love the 2 & 3
These are great pictures. I love them all 🙂
