I used some contrast editing to bring out some detail. Lightroom was useful in adjusting the brightness of different portions of the image, drawing the eye to the mid-image area of light rocks.

This was of a plane being dismantled at the former Plattsburgh Airport. I found a trail in the background that fit well. Playing a bit with the saturation gave more texture to the aluminum.

This shot was almost a loss, the detail of the wood grain in the lit area of the table was almost completely washed, and levels were impossible to isolate to the area so my only option was to adjust the image as a whole which was a far too blunt adjustment. Eventually I found Photoshop's shadow/highlight tool was just right for bringing out the detail in the lit portion of the shot. This was taken in the new "Smooth Moves" coffee shop on the corner of Broad and Durkee here in Plattsburgh.

Bicycle Night

One of the few shots I've done on this blog that include people. 1/4 of a second, no flash. I hope to work a bit more on spontaneous shots as opposed to my "as found scene" stuff.

This was taken just outside of my hometown, Saranac Lake, NY. A two piece panorama.

Macro Twig

A black and white macro shot of a twig with a slight increase in color temp.

Lake Champlain at Night

This is my first piece that really uses aperture more than just for test work. A night shot near the marina here in Plattsburgh, NY.
