Re: Photographed TODAY (or Processed today)

Hey Veralisa; I'm with Danny, never leave the camera at home; especially when you're going somewhere that has amazing potential for some great photographs. Not only do you hone your skills each time you adjust the lens and click the shutter, but you also set yourself up for being ready to take that aw inspiring photograph when everything in nature just seems right. Not to mention you save yourself from saying "oh darn, I wish I had my camera!"

Danny, I like your shot. I was a little curious about the white balance though... the flower seems to have an orange tint to it, was that intentional; I mean, it looks good whether it was or not, just curious.

Thanks for the kind words.

re: (lack of) white balance [the truth comes out]
Store lighting was a little weird... a little fluorescent and some tungsten.

Fact is I did not account for (nor act on) WB at the time with in camera settings or during post processing. It was an unconscious decision all the way.

Re: Photographed TODAY (or Processed today)

Danny & Niklos, I need to thank you both...for comment & helpful suggestions. BTW, I NEVER leave home without without a camera. The overboard thing was just some self- depreciation going on.
Danny, I see that shoreline all the time so perhaps I'm not excited about it's details, preferring the silhouette instead. Below is the same area but in daylight. I do like how you cropped it. I think I saw the sun as a huge bowling ball and did try some selective addition of color but wasn't as successful as you were.
Thanks guys!

Downtown North Bend, Washington about 9:30 p.m. on a Friday night. I thought the light/shadows had possibilities as a BW.

I love raptors, Palms, and you've shot some good ones today. They are such beautiful creatures.

Playing around with textures. The cat shadow is from Friday. The church is one DH took on a skiing trip at Easter.

Re: Photographed TODAY (or Processed today)

Taken while messing around today

cropped, a touch of topaz adjust added , and some dodging used

Fuji finepix 5800, auto, super macro

Oh my goodness i have just looked at this on a different monitor and it was terrible (the dodging i had done on the white area ) my apologies to those who had already looked i have tried to rectify it but back on my own monitor that dosent show a problem and now i have got confused as to which is which begining to wish i had not bothered

I think he just bit me. You've made the unlikeable (to me) most attractive.
