"More Than a Photograph" There's a whole lot more to a photograph than what you see. There's a story behind the photograph, a story about the photographer and a story of how the photograph was created.

Test your knowledge of our National Parks. I just posted a 10 question quiz on my website. The questions are a little tougher than you might think and you'll probably be surprised at some of the answers. (There are no sales gimmicks involved with the quiz, no tricks, just a fun quiz) Check it out here: http://williammanning.com/phototrivia/nationalparksquiz/

Arches National Park is a wonderful park for the landscape enthusiast. Panoramic Point in #archesnationalpark is often observed in passing from a car with few people stopping to take in the beauty. Great landscapes are often right in front of us, we just have to open our eyes. The low angle of the sun creates long shadows and enhance a beautiful desert landscape. If your wanting to visit or re-visit #Archesnationalpark with fresh pair of eyes visit http://williammanning.com/trave…/archescanyonlandsphototour/

Most photographers who visit Arches National Park go after the major landmarks and for good reason. I suggest next time you're in Arches don't overlook the beautiful surrounding landscape. Learn to see your surroundings and don't hesitate to photograph what others might pass up. The Painted Desert of Utah and Arizona is a magical place with many awesome discoveries awaiting the observant photographer.

The Oregon Coast is a whole lot more than tide pools and beach scenes. The Oregon Dunes located near Florence, Oregon offer the photographer an interesting change of pace from the rugged coastline for which it is known.
I softened this composition in Nik Color Efex and added film grain to give it an artsy feel. I often add film grain to photos when I'm looking for texture or simply wanting to give a photo a more artistic look and feel.
I will be conducting a photography tour on the Oregon coast in September: http://williammanning.com/travelprograms/

Each month I write a blog post featuring a past architectural assignment. I share my insight into that project and what I was thinking and how I approached some of the shots from the featured project. This month's project is a hospital located in Cincinnati Ohio. Medical complex's are challenging but leave a plenty of room for creativity. Hope you enjoy this month's project on my blog at http://williammanning.com/architectural-assignment-3/

It's been a busy week. Everyone has spring fever, days getting longer and undergrowth is starting to appear in the eastern forests. My post today reflects what is just around the corner, wildflowers blooming in the forests. Shot with my favorite landscape setup, #Canon 5D III and the older Canon 17-35mm (discontinued by Canon). The newer Canon 16-35mm has replaced this lens in my camera bag, much better edge to edge sharpness. Processed with DXO Optics Pro, a wonderful software for processing individual and bulk. I finished the photo off with a rough border, giving the old dark room processed look. I use these borders from time to time. I like the look and encourage you to try one out.
