Flying South Redux


“Flying South” taken 12/31/2014 Denver, CO
Another reprocessing of an old favorite. This was an accidental quick shot that came out a little better than I expected, considering. I was trying to take a closeup of the bird on the wire directly out the apartment window when I noticed geese flying up in the background, swung and tried to widen the angle a little as I shot with no chance to play with aperture or shutter speeds. The result is of course that the geese are out of focus and blurry, but I think it adds to the shot and feel of one bird watching others leave for the winter.

Pretty much identical composition and cropping from my old first attempt, just cleaner and more pop using Lightroom, and a little more dramatic with some added vignette.

Desert Rust Redux

“Found this abandoned and shot up car in the desert when ATVing in Tucson.”

“Desert Rust” taken 11/21/2005 Tucson, AZ
original “cutout” post-processing 8/21/2006
Decided to go through and collect and retouch some of my old favorite pics. Here’s the first to receive some Lightroom TLC originally taken on an old lower res Nikon, and processed with an ancient Paint Shop Pro app, but still not too bad.

014:365:2014 Snowstorm over frozen lake panorama

Tried processing this several ways and while I’m not super happy with the end result I think its not too bad. Initially I really wanted to see the misty foggy look of the far side of the lake, but all my attempts did not come out well. In future I guess I’ll have to try using a tripod and try to shield the lens from falling snow better as the speckling caused by the falling snow and melting snow on the lens really played havoc with this digitally stitched panorama. Ended up going the other way; with this high contrast, dark, sharp & desaturated version which I think came out pretty cool and managed to capture the downright chilly landscape.
