SLEEPING GIANT
This shot is from this years Easter adventure, down at Lancaster County, PA. This is a must see place if you are visiting PA. Trying to capture this shot was challenging and it took me close to 5h and the numerous rides to capture and layer the steam. The rides run every 45min, so I had to wait for the train to arrive and go backwards after each ride so I can manage to take few shots and all without a tripod. The person operating the train was kind enough to hit the steam pedal each time cause he new what I was trying to do.

Beauty Will Save The World ! - Austin Street Art

Panorama of large street art mural, painted on a section of six foot wooden fence by approximately fifty feet long. This fence is located on the East side of North Lamar Blvd. in Austin, Texas.  See - https://goo.gl/maps/WCk4mN7WWyu .

The basic hand-held technique for doing this is to:  fill the frame with one section of the mural, take image, repeat this process with a new adjoining section of the mural until the entire mural has been captured with several images.  Allow sufficient overlap between image sections so stitching software can make one panorama image.  In taking your images, try to keep the same distance from the mural for the entire length as you photograph the individual sections.  In addition to this, try to maintain a consistent distance between the top of your view finder and the top of the mural for the entire length of the mural.

After stitching the sections, I had to warp a couple of sections to get a more or less rectangular format.  After getting the rectangular format of the mural, a selection was made of the area above the fence and a white mask was applied to this area.  A white background was added so that the area above the fenced appeared white in color.

Lightroom CC2016 was used to make the initial panorama.  Ten images were stitched to the entire panorama.  However, Lightroom would not stitch all the images at once.  It would stitch the first six images as one panorama and the last four images as the second panorama.  I believe this was due to not being sufficient overlap between two image.  However, I did maintain a constant shooting area above the fence.  The right section of the fence leaned backward.  By my maintaining a consistent shooting distance above the fence combined with a backward leaning fence, the stitching process may have been hindered?  Maybe it was a combination of insufficient overlap and the backward leaning fence?

The two panorama were brought into Photoshop and these were stitched together, warp tool applied, masked, white area added above fence.  This large panorama was brought back into Lightroom for a little contrast and curves tweaking.

STAIRWAY TO HEAVEN
“Your stairway lies on the whispering wind
And as we wind on down the road
Our shadows taller than our soul
There walks a lady we all know
Who shines white light and wants to show
How everything still turns to gold
And if you listen very hard
The tune will come to you at last…”

STARKNESS
It’s been a while since I discovered this old fire truck right around the corner from my house. I’ve shot this old timer a few times during the day just for fun and to pass some time. Few nights ago I got this idea and went out to try to achieve it. I was happy with the result at the end. to develop this image, I’ve been using few tips and techniques that I’ve picked up over the time. I want go into much detail here and  will keep tech talk to the minimum. One 5min exposure was for the truck and the rest of 200 was for the trails. Few exposures, I stack into the smart object and changed the stack mode to “mean” to get all the noise out. The rest was just tweaking the color and the details. What do you think?

Howdy Everyone... So This Past Weekend I Was Asked To Work The Snow Summit Radio Event Out In Big Bear. I Was Super Excited Because I Wanted To See Snow And Since We Rarely Get Rain (A Few Days Ago We Did) It Rarely Snows In Our Mountains. It's Just Beautiful And It's Good To Change Scenery Once In Awhile. Though I Was Driving And Working All Day I Just Didn't Seem To Be Able To Sleep Through The Night. I Woke Up At 3:50am And Decided To Take A Stroll Around The Hotel Hoping I Was Able To Find A Good Photo Taking Spot. As I Walking Around The Back Of The Hotel In The Chill 30F Degree Weather, I Was At Awe With The Beautiful Trees And Sky. The Perfect Moment Presented Itself And I Decided To Line My Camera Up For This Shot. Whatcha Think?

Stormy Remnant

This was taken just outside Silverton - near Broken Hill. We camped at a caravan park here, and the previous day, as we crossed this bridge here, we had to drive through water crossing the bridge. This early morning, only the signs of water flowing was left.

The City-Alamo Park View

I took this last year and didn't finish it until just now. Not that I've been struggling with it that long. It just randomly popped up on my radar tonight as I was browsing through my Lightroom library. 

I'd worked on it some last year, gave it four stars, and put it away for another day. There are times that I leave them hangin' in limbo like that with a four star rating, knowing that sometime in the future I'll be in the right place to know what the photo wants to end up looking like, and get back to finishing it and adding that fifth star.So today I finished it.

SUBWAY
I really enjoyed shooting this location. This is a Fulton St. metro station in New York. It is in the same neighborhood as the World Trade Center and for anyone interested in shooting architecture it is one of the most interesting spots, in my opinion, on Manhattan. A ton of new structures, reflections, patterns mixed with a few interesting old NY spots, it was an afternoon well spent. For this post I choose this abstract shot, taken all the way from the bottom floor, looking up. What do you think?

FREE
“The most important kind of freedom is to be what you really are. You trade in your reality for a role. You trade in your sense for an act. You give up your ability to feel, and in exchange, put on a mask. There can't be any large-scale revolution until there's a personal revolution, on an individual level. It's got to happen inside first.”
