Evening on Lower Crabapple Road – A Somewhat Different View   6 comments

Just fiddled around some with my ACDSee and thought this might be an interesting rendering of a picture I posted on Wednesday. The rendering is called „posterize“:

Before and After   10 comments

Of late, I have been experimenting with EasyHDR, especially enhancing my old pictures and I’m still amazed about the results. Here’s a „before“ and „after“ [of a flower I took years ago – in 2005 – at the Rose Garden Inn in Berkeley].

Vorher – Nachher

In der letzten Zeit habe ich eine Menge herumexperimentiert mit EasyHDR, ganz besonders um meine alten Fotos aufzupeppen, und ich bin immer wieder von Neuem erstaunt über die Ergebnisse. Hier ist dann ein „Vorher“ und „Nachher“ vom einer Blume, die ich vor Jahren [2005] im Garten des Rose Garden Inn in Berkeley aufgenommen hahe.

St. Louis/MO Bridges – Continued   14 comments

It’s quite a while since I last published any of my pictures from our „RailTrailsRoadTrip“ in October last year. So I really need to continue. Here’s a picture of Eads Bridge. We passed underneath it on our 2-hour cruise of the waterfron to St. Louis.

This picture has been edited, I must admit, both with ACDSee Ultimate 9 [for a light equalizer] and with easyHDR [for enhancement of details], but I think this brings out the fine metal structure very well, even if it does look a tad artificial.

Lower Slaughter, GB   10 comments

For my first picture here after my pause in blogging, I’ve chosen one that I took in 2013 in the Cotswolds, in the picturesque little village of Lower Slaughter:

The original photo has been (slightly) enhanced with EasyHDR, a programme I have lately come to like.

Another extreme wide-angle lens view with some quite dramatic effect, again in a picture taken across the Blue Mesa Reservoir on the Gunnison River in the Curecanti National Recreation Area in Colorado.

Clouds, Rocks, and Water

An extreme wide-angle lens can create quite dramatic effects, as here in a picture taken across the Blue Mesa Reservoir on the Gunnison River in the Curecanti National Recreation Area in Colorado.

Texas Still Life: Rooster, Longhorn Skull, and Truck in Luckenbach/TX   9 comments

Usually I don’t do any editing with my pictures [except for some cropping]. but I think this one here lent itself to changing it from colour to sepia:
