Water Flowing

A closeup of a small creek…I used a longer exposure (as long as I could), to get the water to blur a bit…but this did lead to part of the water being blown out.  (Longer exposure = brighter picture…too bright and the brightest spots are pure white = no detail left = “Blown out”)

Native Art

This was taken at the Vancouver Airport (YVR). Because of the harsh lighting (out of my control, sun beaming in through the windows), I had to do a fair amount of touchup afterwards. Below is the original image.

Hmmm….maybe I loke the colour vesion better..I may revisit this one.

Extreme Closeup!

Do you know what this is? Any guesses? Any guesses on the size? I always love these types of shots, where the viewer has no real concept of size. This is an extreme closeup of a small wooden abacus. The “beads” were about 6mm accross (0.3″ for thise imperial types). Shots like this really show you how much a narrow DOF can force the eye to a certain area of the image.

More Fibre Optics

Used the same fibre optic “wand” as in the previous image, but this time I used three exposures, changed two of them to different colours (green/blue) and then superimposed them atltogether into one image. I am always drawn to RGBish images.

Yellow Flower

I know, I know, another flower. I particularily like this one because of the DOF, and I thought the background colours helped boost the vibrancy of the yellow in the flower (is vibrancy a word?). I also tried to apply the classic “rule of thirds”, but I know I am off a bit. If you imagine two lines dividing the frame into three equal vertical strips (thirds), the left line should go through the center of the flower…I think I am a bit closer to a fifth line in this one, other than that, I am happy with this one. What do you think?
