This is the separation of the North American and European Tectonic plates… It’s a lovely walk and Waterfall! This is the first stop on the Golden Circle tour that leaves from Reykjavik, Iceland. The separation in the basalt is split between the North American and European tectonic plates. The right side is North America and the left is Europe. It’s a fun and easy hike to this location. We were there at around 11pm and were the...
This is the inside looking up at the ceiling of the Lutheran Church in Reykjavik, Iceland. I took this with the Fisheye Olloclip on the iPhone 5S It’s a bit grainy but cool in that you can see the large pipe organ and the front of the church in one photo!07-01-2014 I purchased the Olloclip on a whim from a Kiosk at the airport before my departure. (I went to the kiosk to buy some headphones as I always lose the pair I bought on a previous trip...
Jumped on an IcelandAir flight from Seattle to Reykjavik. Technically this flight is a redeye as it leaves at 4:30pm in Seattle and arrives in Reykjavik at 6am… I had mentally prepared for a few hours of darkness but the sun never left the winglet! It never got dark! And I wouldn’t see night for an entire week! 06-30-2014 Here are a few other photos from my Flight to Reykjavik: These ladies were kind enough to move my seat to an exit row with...
I like photographing sunflowers.
I like all the varying textures around Sunflowers. The greenery, the petals and the dark center.
I used the light above the stove for light and then I used Nik’s Analog Efex Pro2 and Perfect Photo Studio8 in post processing.
Another day, another photo editing technique on these Sunflowers.
Tried using the Stacks in Photoshop for this image. I was too lazy to pull out my tripod so I took 4 exposures handheld but moved the focus spot in each exposure. I then opened up all 4 images in Adobe Photoshop 2014CC, loaded each of the files into a Stack and the aligned the layers as a stack. It’s not perfect but it basically achieved what I was looking for. One image captured fairly wide open with a broader range of focus. At the end I loaded up the stacked file into Perfect Photo Effects 8 and applied a few filters to adjust the contrast.
So I have trouble spelling Fronds. For some reason when I say Palm Fronds, I hear Palm Frawns, kind of like Prawns. So I kept spelling it Frawns and my computer spell check kept notifying me of my error. I finally googled Palm Frawns and found that it really is spelled Palm Fronds. Also, I’m only a few days from the half way mark in this years Photo a Day… I have to say that I’ve been going through a bit of a lull in my daily photos. Many days its just a quick snap here or there… I still enjoy the challenge personally so I’ll keep going. I wish I had more time to blog about the thought process each day though. Maybe that’s something I’ll try and incorporate more in the last half of the year.
This is a low light hand-held exposure of a few Palm Fronds in my back yard,(I have photographed it in the past) and I edited it with Aperture and Perfect Photo Effects 8. If you’re looking to add to your photo editing toolkit OnOneSoftware has a great summer bundle for $99.
