Neighborhood Dock

This image has been getting some attention lately on a different site, so I thought I would post it here as well. I also have a black and white version of this photo which I actually like better. Would love to know what you think.

Bridge in Hyde Park

I took this long exposure shot in Hyde Park at sunset. As it turned out a bit too dark in the shadows, I also took some other exposures to under- and overexposed the image. That was very helpful when I edited the picture as some ares were too dark. I blended it all together and here is the final image.

ReEdit on an Old Photo

I took this photo a couple of years ago when I was just learning long exposure photography. This is a re-edit from the original. I've been working on my lightroom skills lately by revisiting some of my old photos. It can be fun to revisit old photos with new editing techniques/skills. I like this photo a lot more now than I did previously.

The USS Lexington... the Blue Ghost

On a trip to Corpus Christi I came upon the Lexington WWII aircraft Carrier. I was trying to take this picture but it is a popular spot and fellow tourists were constantly entering the frame. I decide to try a long exposure hoping to remove most interference and this is the result. I used a 10 plus a 6 stop ND filter which I believe in this...

Lonely tree

Picture took during sunrise at Llyn Padarn in Snowdonia. Thankfully got there before other photographers and managed to get the shot. It is a two shot image so I could fit all the reflection and all the tree in. Any bit of the tree being clipped out would not of been good enough! feel free to comment.

San Francisco Cable Car Company Power Plant

Fascinating to see the one source of all the power for the cable car system that runs up and down the hills of San Francisco. Not having a tripod with me, the observation platform railings provided adequate stability to capture sharpness in a none too well lit background while preserving the motion of the ever churning wheels.

Creates a...

Stern Wheeler in Motion

Cruising down the Columbia River Gorge, riding on a sternwheeler. I am wanting to capture to spinning motion of the paddle wheel against the majesty of the river and the gorge. So I needed a slow shutter speed to get the blurred wheel but a sharp back ground while the boat keeps lurching in the choppy water. I understood then what people mean...

Taking advantage of a power outage / Macouria, French Guiana

It was the second power outage in my neighborhood that month. On the first one, I scouted a few locations to shoot the milky way
On the second one, i grabbed my camera, tripod, and ran to the spot, so as to shoot before power came back.
i had to cope with passing cars as it was quite early (9 PM). I was able to get some decents...

Moody Seascape

I shot this on a stormy morning on Galiano Island, BC, Canada. The clouds were moving quite quickly. West Vancouver on the horizon. Any further post suggestions? Just did a few enhancements in Lightroom

When I'm Not Shooting Nature, This is my Backup

Personally, I love being out in nature, just me and a waterfall, or lakes, or mountains. However, when I live, there isn't much nature to be found. That being said, what Tokyo lacks in nature it more than makes up for in cityscape and night photography opportunities.

I don't really have an eye for architecture, but Tokyo provides a lot...
