Seed Study, a set on Flickr.

There are these seeds near my home. They look like enormous dandelions. I have no idea what they are. I stopped the van on Saturday and collected a coffee cup full.
These are results of playing around with my trusty 100mm macro and a tripod. I used my playbook as a black reflective surface.
I added a little interest with an eye dropper and a mister.
What do you think?

I have taken shots of this engine on a number of occations. It is a requirement that we stop by and visit it when we are in cottage country. William would so upset if we did not visit “his” train, when we are in Haliburton, Ontario, getting supplies.
I think this black and white treatment does her justice.

I am beginning to move into a black and white phase, I think. I am looking more and more with black and white in mind.
I think I will spend a little more time in Lightroom and experimenting with the black and white settings.

Wish me luck.

Now, take the same picture and treat it 2 ways. Two different results and feelings.

I have to say that the colour version is nice, but I much prefer the Black and White version.

I use lightroom as a dark room product and am very happy with it.

Your opinions are encouraged.

What are your thoughts? critiques?

I think I actually print and frame these.  I think the black and white versions in a black frame and a large white mat…no?

I have started looking at things with black and white in mind. Refections, angles and sunlight take on a whole different character when processed in monochrome.
I think that older buildings just scream the various shades of grey but new structures like the ROM can work their own reflective magic.

Hmmmm…….what else is around the corner?

Planet Toronto v2 by Roger's Eye

I know that there are 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 one of my favorite things to do,  spending the day at the Zoo with my family.

We will generally pick a cold or overcast day to avoid the crowds.  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.
