This has a bit of an urban/romanticism feel to it, I think. Central Park has a small creek running through the Ramble section. You can just about see the buildings of Central Park West through the trees. I went a little hyper on the processing to bring out some shadow detail, punch up the color, […]

Saturday morning I visited Central Park to capture the fall color. I do not think we are quite in peak color season here in NY. This image is filled with it, but other scenes I saw were still filled with green trees. But this image will do, to be sure. I think I went a bit […]

One of the topics that participants in the #we3 project have often discussed is the suitability of a 35mm field of view for landscape work.  My position is it is a geat landscape lens, despite its obvious limitations. Let’s address those first. Obviously you cannot zoom in and compress the image. If I wanted to, […]

This is the third shot I’m presenting of this spot, Weber House, in the Palouse region of Washington.  Previous ones are here and here.  I find this version a bit surreal, or cinematic.  Not sure what I think of it. I even let it sit for a week or so before coming back to it and […]

Probably the two best things about having been forced to switch to Lightroom from Aperture are the easier workflow for uploading to WordPress/NextGen galleries and to Smugmug, and the aility to use all the Presets from my buddies at the Photo Frontier. For this image I started with one of their LR presets (I forget […]
