Wonderful image from +Rick Sammon !
 
Right place, right time, right subject, right lens, right camera, right subject, right exposure, right composition, right angle of view.

Make it right.

Approaching Spring

I have fun applying multiple textures and blend modes (using PS) to an image to achieve the vision that was in minds eye. Love exploring all the great images in this community. Thanks +Rick Sammon and +Juan Pons !

The Chaung Yen Monastery is one of the largest Monastery's on the East Coast located in Carmel, New York. This is a drum tower located near the large temple which houses the largest Buddha I've ever seen (37 feet tall), and encircled by 10,000 miniature Buddha's. I like to use textures and this image has lots of it! Taking a bit of the reality out of an image can lead to a more interesting photo (a +Rick Sammon -ism). Love all of them btw.

+Darlene Hildebrandt Yes indeed it is tone mapped using a three bracketed set and finished off in PS applying various texture layers and blend modes to get the desired result. I like to not only take pictures, I make them as well. Thanks for the comment Darlene.

This photo was taken atop the Duomo of Milan, Italy. I certainly wish the sun was placed differently but had to capture regardless. I applied various texture layers to give a more artistic look. #italy   #milano   #milan   #duomo   #texture   #sunset   #sunsetphotography

What is reflected is a crayons-printed cloth. It was fun to make. Thanks for the comment Glenn.

Thru the Glass
As winter leaves us (really?. it's going to snow today!), I thought I'd post a B&W winter scene I shot two years ago. I used textures and various blend modes in PS to help with creative vision I had for this shot.

I enjoy the creative and technological mix in photo image making. I have a SmugMug Pro account to display some of my images. I also have a blog called Racanelli Photography Insights.
