Cheers! Didn't even realised I had posted it before but looking at the Flickr Upload it looks like I posted it nearly 3 years ago. Far too long for my memory to work!

Have to say I think the shot looks better when you roll over and therefore without the luma masks!

Todays shot was a quick fire as I needed to finish off a roll of Kodak Ektar that I had in my film back which I find to slow to do anything with!

As always, comments are appreciated.

15 second exposure on Calgary's Center Street Bridge. Was very cold that night!!!

It was tough to get the right white balance with all the orange lights around. Made each photo look too warm.

I hope all is going well for you with your simplifying of your life.
Thank you very much sir! The simplifying is going well so far and my bank account is starting to agree

There is another shot from this series. I'll be offline from tonight to Sunday evening, I'll post the third one from this series then.

That way you'll be pulling more out of your raw data. Just my $0.02.
So are you saying to use the luminosity masks to layer the two smart objects(raws) together? Apologies, I'm a bit new to using masking and smart objects. I have only this semester learned about fully non destructive workflows.

Oh, and you can add me to the list of folks eagerly awaiting your Articles.

Personally, I dont care for the before or after of that image. Like i said someone on the forum suggested it. I went through the tutorial using an image of my own, and liked the results so I have been telling others about it.

Geeze, you'd want to know where not to stand as traffic passes. There again, you'd learn quick enough!

-----------------

Back to the Lavender Farm for me today, not that I was there today, just revisiting it here, if that makes sense? I dragged this huge harvesting trolley all around the place taking pictures with it in the background, in the foreground, just with bits of it visible, this ended up being my favourite. Yet another to use on their website.

I don't know a single thing about portraiture or film photography, so can't comment there, but, it is good to see your girlfriend smile! Who couldn't like that!

Yes. Yes, that tree is complete. Hmm. I think the photographer may have enjoyed one or two, maybe three or four egg nog treats as it was going up.

A little blurry but the Christmas spirit shines through. Good one.

Thanks for the comment! Something like that is always nicer than a critique. Although in a sort of pose it felt quite natural.

Now at the other end of the scale here is a totally natural shot with absolutely zero posing!

As always, comments are appreciated!

I don't have as much reach as some of the other guys that post bird shots here, this is as close as I could get with my kit 55-250mm lens. The sparrows here find these power poles perfect for nesting in.

Nice shot. Since it's not the actual thread the only critique I would have is that I would have deepened the DOF a little just to get all the of the hanging wire from the bauble in focus! Good luck!

Thanks for that. It was a great hike through a 10 - 12K trail at Killarney Provincial Park. I'll post a few more in the next few days. Again, thanks.
