On the Docks

Here's a shot that was originally done in black and white. I played with some color temp and some shading to get the final image. Its not quite sepia, but it isn't far off.

Flying Robots

This image is a bit different from my previous posts in a few ways. First off, rather than a lake, tree, or building, it is of flying robots. The other major difference is that I used three programs in post production. I used Lightroom for the vignettes (the darker corners), Photoshop for the general levels and contrast, and Picassa for the cool tones (the background was actually an off-white blank wall).

Union Falls Pond

This is a springtime shot taken just next to the Union Falls Dam near Silver Lake, New York. That's Whiteface Mountain just right of center with snow on top. Click on the panoramic shot to see a larger version.

A Return to Bright Colors

Yay for spring! Now I can actually do some real color work.. This I found down in the direction of U.S. Oval here in Plattsburgh. This home has a beautiful porch and the sun was just starting to set.


A shot here in Plattsburgh with the help of Adobe Lightroom for the edges. I was thinking of getting into HDR but I think I'll play around with less dramatic editing like this.

Willsboro Point

A shot at the point in Wilsboro, one of the most beautiful locations I've seen on Lake Champlain. The reflection is off water dripping from ice that was in the shade near the top of the rocks.
