Jordan Pond - Acadia National Park

Hiked around the rocky shore of Jordan Pond until I found a spot to set up my Gorillapod on a rock to capture the crystal clear water. Converted 3 exposures (-2, 0, +2 EV) to HDR in Photomatix and edited with Lightroom and Nik Color Efex Pro.

Looking downtown, Manhattan

This is a photo that I took a while back but decided to re-process. I thought that +Nik Collection by Google's new Analog Efex Pro 2 and Color Efex together might have some nice results on this HDR image. 

I have this up for sale on +Cratedhttp://goo.gl/1dtufr

Portland, OR // Wildwood Trail // HDR

Shot this on the Wildwood Trail in Macleay Park leading up to Pittock Mansion, which is accessible right from the city. All the fog, clouds coming and going, and massive trees made for a really beautiful hike!

This image is three exposures merged to HDR in Photomatix, editing with Lightroom and Nik Analog Efex Pro 2.

Anyone else on Ello? http://ello.co/jeffparkes

Seattle Skyline from Queen Anne

Found some really cool views of Seattle while exploring Queen Anne hill! We went there to visit Kerry Park but ended up finding a more interesting view just wandering around the neighborhood.

Amazing sunset tonight in Massachusetts. I only had my iPhone on me so I walked through cars in the grocery store parking lot to get a good angle of these power lines.

Peeking at Boston from Lo Presti Park

The clouds looked heavy enough last night for a potentially interesting sunset so I drove over to East Boston to check out the view from Lo Presti Park. I took a "behind the lens" shot and included a bit more processing information on the full blog post: http://www.opticalbits.com/2014/06/09/peeking-at-boston-from-lo-presti-park/
