Why do old cars scream black and white? I do not know why, but they sure look great that way. I convered this shot in camera. Thx Canon, no Lightroon required!

The results speak for them selves.

See the results of my new toy. I found a nicely priced 100mm Macro lens on kijiji yesterday. I have been saving up for one for a while now and jumped on it.
This is one of my first shots with it. It has a crazy shallow Depth of field. This needs to get used to, but I am really looking forward to the detail it will give.
Fast to focus and sharp as a tack. I think it will be worth the added wieght in my camera bag.

Further postings will follow as a learn the ins and outs of this lens.

Wish me luck! πŸ™‚

I know that there areΒ the purists that may not like photo manipulation. For me, I have cleaned up, adjusted levels and cropped my photographs. I think is one of the key advanteges to the digital age of photography.

The above is a heavily twisted photo of mine of Toronto. I saw the effect on the web and thought I would try the same.

I think it turned out very well.

It is very easy to do. This link gave me all that I needed.

This is Frank. He is cat in residence at Pia’s ballet studio. He can be very grouchy, and very fun at the same time. He knows that I am a dog person, and puts up with me. OK, that is not entirely true….I do have a few scratches and bites.

Thank you for putting up with my camera, Frank

This is one of my favorite things to do,Β  spending the day at the Zoo with my family.

We will generally pick a cold or overcast day to avoid the crowds.Β  This photo was take at feeding time on a cold winter day.

I thought it would be a good one to enhance with HDR.

I think the post processing was worth the effort.
