Half Island Cove (very lightly applied bleach bypass)

So, yet again, I abandoned my database chores without getting far: I made it to October. I came across some shots from Half Island Cove as I finished September and thought I could play with them for a little while then get back to the drudgery of entering keywords. I picked a few. Some had noticeable glow from HDR processing, others seemed too saturated or too dark or too something. When attempting to improve shots I go right back to the originally captured images, run them through the HDR software to generate 32-bit files which then get tonemapped, re-imported, stitched then adjusted before finally being exported and uploaded here.  (more…)

Now that I have some pleasing shots I tend to think I should not stop anymore, but as you can see, the impulse was too strong. I had no choice but to try again.

The images here are experiments. I’m trying variations: same subject, different pose.

In the photo above the highway is a significant aspect of the composition, as are the over-saturated yellow lines. The house itself is partially obscured by tree limbs – a shot that is not possible when there are leaves. (more…)

Old fishing boat, Marie Joseph

In October, last year, I photographed this vessel for the first time. My compositions do not differ significantly though I feel the final results are technically superior. The new images are sharper and I wasn’t quite so heavy handed with the processing. Now that I am warm and dry and content I can say, without too much hesitation, that the effort and time invested in the day was made worthwhile because I have these images to show for it. I’m assuming most people will like these boat shots more than the ice breaker or crane. (more…)
