Day 62 (cheat)

I know, I cheat a lot. At least I’m honest. Really like the texture of this shot, hope you do too.

Day 39

Quite a dramatic crop. Not that the rest if the original frame was uninteresting; in fact, it worked quite well, however, what I was really taken with was the ripples on the water reflecting the branches above. The ripples being caused by the drips from thoseĀ overhanging branches (now out of shot). I love the way they move and interact, I love how something that seems so simple is in fact so complex.

I hope you love it too.

Day 27

Lunchtime. Walked a different route. Found the Marquis of Bute peeping tom at the tower block in the centre of the city. I like the look. The compression caused by the extreme zoom. Worked in LightRoom 4 and Perfect Photo Suite 8.Marquis of Bute

 

Day 16

Well if you can’t get out to shoot, you can at least shoot from the window. How annoying though. You wait and wait for fog. It’s so eerie, dramatic and cinema. And when it comes along, you’re an aching, sweaty mass unable to go exploring. Oh well. I kinda like this image, limited as it is, I hope you like it too.

Outside the fog beckons, and I'm stuck in doors :(

Day 6

 

 

 

I am so looking forward to the weekend.

It’s difficult sourcing images (not impossible) when your shoot times are too and from work. As the days lengthen, opportunities will become greater, but now I have to admit I’m struggling, hence the abrasive use of post production filters. I am not opposed surreptitious use of filters, but I’m old school. I’ve come from a film background, which is the greatest of disciplines. Get it right in camera. Or better yet shoot it how you want it in camera. The original of this images is ok, but not whoohoo! Hence the use of filters. Don’t think any worse of me, lol.City Blue

 

A picture a day

As of tomoorw, I’m going to try and take a picture a day. A simple exercise to keey my eye and mind sharp. I will post the results here.

Here’s my latest image for flickr:Ā watching the waves
