Rainbow Over Horseshoe Falls (Canada)
Check how photo looked straight from the camera, how it was taken and processed
http://www.phototraces.com/deconstructing-photo/rainbow-over-horseshoe-falls-canada/

From the moment the heavy rain stopped until every single cloud was gone making it boring afternoon, we had 40 minutes of amazingly photogenic weather with the clear sky, the clouds, the mist and the multiple rainbows. I was lucky to be in the right place at the right time.

SHOOTING & PROCESSING

The shooting part was easy. The difficult part was to find the spot for taking pictures. July is extremely busy time at Niagra Falls and after the rain stopped, every single tourist was outside walking along the river. I did not even try to unpack my tripod keeping it in the backpack.

I took a few of single shots hand-held and was on my way to Skylon Tower for some areal views.

Grand Manan Island – Southwest Head Light (New Brunswick)
Check how photo looked straight from the camera, how it was taken and processed
http://www.phototraces.com/deconstructing-photo/grand-manan-island-southwest-head-light-new-brunswick/

I love visiting Grand Manan Island which located in the heart of Bay of Fundy. I consider it to be one of the ultimate photography destinations. It is simply beautiful.

Normally, when I travel to Atlantic Canada, I dedicate one full day to spend on Grand Manan. I always take the very first ferry in the morning and after 2-hour ride I arrive at Grand Manan around 9am.

It is always foggy in the morning and you have to wait at least an hour for the sun to start burning fog away. Every time I visit Grand Manan, the fog start to disappear from the southern tip of the island – Southwest Head. This is where I always drive after arriving at the island and start my photo exploration from there.

This year it was no different, except that it took almost 3 hours for the fog to completely disappear.

Interesting fact: The Grand Manan has free public WiFi access and it covers the entire island, it is extremely convenient when you travel.

SHOOTING & PROCESSING

I took 3 bracketed shots on a tripod (-1, 0, +1). The challenge was to find big enough spot to set up a tripod.

I used single RAW image editing in Lightroom. I described the process in The Minimalist Guide to Lightroom Editing.

First I applied Lightroom preset Natural from my Landscape Collection and later I used ToolKit to adjust exposure mostly because the photo was a bit underexposed.

The Lightroom Preset Editing Formula: Natural (2, 9, 17, 30)

Green Road to the Mountains (California)
Check how photo looked straight from the camera, how it was taken and processed:
http://www.phototraces.com/deconstructing-photo/green-road-to-the-mountains-california/

HDR Processed: Lightroom, Photoshop HDR Pro
Bracketing: 3 shots (-2, 0, +2 )

At the end of the January 2015, after visiting Hawaii, I flew to California to complete my first photo trip of the year. Once again, I started my journey in Los Angeles and drove along the scenic California State Route 1 all the way to San Francisco.

In the middle of the drive I realized that coastal Northern California looks very different this year. The 2014 was the year of record-setting drought in California history and that winter I witnessed completely different landscapes. California looked more like a desert with the predominant brownish colors of dry vegetation.

When I reached Piedras Blancas, and was about to drive along the last stretch of the flat road just before hitting the mountains, I remembered that in 2014 I photographed this area and one of the photos was very popular on my blog. I decided to take another photo from the same spot and compare them later.

Fallen Leaves on the Deck (Montreal)
Check how photo looked straight from the camera, how it was taken and processed
http://www.phototraces.com/deconstructing-photo/fallen-leaves-on-the-deck-montreal/

This is the spot from where $2 ferry leaves for one of the most spectacular 20min open-air rides from Lachine Canal along Saint Lawrence River. The ferry is not operational at the time of year but the pontoon deck is not removed yet. I jumped over the fence and took few shots, setting the tripod on the deck. trying to include plenty of fall foilage into the composition.

SHOOTING & PROCESSING

The shooting and processing were easy. I took 3 bracketed shots on a tripod but used only middle exposure for editing.

I used Lightroom Rapid Editing, applying Open Sky preset first from Fall Colors Collection and then used TOOLKIT adjustments.

Lightroom Editing Formula: Open Sky (1, 9, 31)

Shen Yun Symphony Orchestra Debuts 2016 Asia Tour in Tokyo, Japan

September 18, 2016 | By Minghui correspondent Zheng Yuyan

(Minghui.org) The Shen Yun Symphony Orchestra began its 2016 concert tour by presenting its unique blend of East and West to a full-house audience in Tokyo Japan, on the afternoon of September 15.

As part of the New York-based Shen Yun Performing Arts, the Shen Yun Symphony Orchestra has toured North America each autumn since 2012. This year it will perform in 13 cities in Japan and Taiwan in addition to the North American stops on the tour.


The Shen Yun Symphony Orchestra debuts its Asia Tour at the Tokyo Opera City Concert Hall with a matinee performance on September 15, 2016.

Radio Station Host: “Extraordinarily Touched”


Radio station host Miyosa Takahashi.
Radio station host Ms. Miyosa Takahashi said, “I felt extraordinarily touched... from the top of my head all the way to my toes.”

“I felt uplifted and embraced by a powerful energy,” Ms. Takahashi said. She said the music was “combined perfectly” and “really wonderful.”

She also commented on the dedication of the performers, “They were so immersed in their performance that they seemed to become part of the musical instruments.”

Stage Producer: “Grand” and “Unique”


Stage producer Hatsune Miku
Stage producer Hatsune Miku commented, “Very unique... It is hard to find music this good.”

“Very grand and refreshing,” Ms. Miku said. “The entire music seemed to be looking down from above. It is at a high level and flying in the sky.”

She also shared her inspiration, “Classical music and traditional culture must be preserved. It is our responsibility to save something this excellent for future generations.”

“Refreshing” and “Exquisite”


Takao Toda, director general of Human Development Department at the International Cooperation Agency of Japan (JICA)
Dr. Takao Toda, director general of the Human Development Department of the International Cooperation Agency of Japan (JICA) said of the performance, “The grace of the East was accentuated by the magnificent power of the Western instruments. It is indeed simply exquisite.”

“Never did I imagine that such distinct Eastern and Western melodies could be performed by the same musicians,” Dr. Toda said of Shen Yun's combination of East and West. “I am truly amazed at their high level of professionalism.”

“It was truly a refreshing experience!” he stressed.

“Magnificent” and “Powerful”


Isao Yoshikawa, an author and the founder of the Japan Garden Research Association.
Mr. Isao Yoshikawa, the founder of the Japan Garden Research Association, remarked, “The blend of Chinese and Western instruments was very magnificent and powerful.”

He especially enjoyed the piece performed on the erhu instrument, which he thought was “clear,” “powerful,” and “beautiful.”

“It is hard for the Japanese to have the chance to enjoy music like this. Therefore, I would definitely recommend it to my friends,” Mr. Yoshikawa said.

The Shen Yun Symphony Orchestra will next be performing 16 concerts in 12 cities in Taiwan on September 17 through October 3.
