What a pretty bicycle she said

Personally, I'm not a fan of the vignettes. I left the adapter ring for the fisheye lens on by accident and it got in the way. Some people like the effect but for me, though, I'll make sure I take the adapter ring off in the future.

Adirondack Sunset

Taken on the Norman Ridge Road, just a couple miles from the place I grew up in Vermontville, NY.

Here's an interesting one..

I was hunting through some photos I took a long time ago, this was at a friend's place in March (those guys on Elm Street). Robot painting by Lizabeth Allen. Extreme post editing while learning a couple new programs for the SnG method.

Fall Colors

Somewhere past Keeseville.. I have no idea where.

The River

Most shots of this style have the floating leaf or feather or whatever in focus with the background in a blur, usually from a lower vantage point, looking almost level with the water. I decided to switch that up, use the eye's expectation of that to make it go directly to the bright leaf with the dark background then be brought up to the detail on the trees and back and forth. Oh yeah, and walking in the river up to my knees in mid-October, a bit chilly. I don't plan on doing a shot like this again anytime soon. Thanks to Frank, owner of the property bordering the water, that chatted about his own photography and let me go out and get this shot.

Taken just upriver from the green bridge in Morrisonville, NY on the Saranac.

Lomo Wall

A shot of a drill of some sort over by a factory here in Plattsburgh. I took this about a month back with the intention of working on some different effects but didn't get around to it until today. I used some effects that simulated the lomo style while playing around with the color adjustment in my own way.

Smokey Sundown

This is true color, actually.. The extremes of the red come from the fact I was shooting at 1/2000 of a sec and some slight hues can turn deep if the backlight is there. Taken just over the NY-VT bridge near Rouses Point. I owe most of the color to the smoke in the air from the wildfires across the Canadian border.

This shot is unique for me in a couple ways. First, I added a heavy warming filter to give it a deep sepia-esque feel. I usually just add slight tints to barely change the atmosphere of an image. Secondly, no part of the shot is really in focus. I purposely focused it somewhere between the bike and the background to try and give it a bit of a dreamy/fuzzy look. Summer evening shots are fun but I want to diversify a bit away from the standard sunset shot.

I was lost somewhere between Rouses Point, NY and Chazy, I think..

Taken in the now long closed Frontier Town in North Hudson, NY. I went for a walk around the abandoned property and found some pretty interesting scenes. I accidentally had my ISO set high for most of the day but it made little difference as besides this shot I wasn't going for much artistic work.

After Rain

Taken in West Plattsburgh just above the dam.

Burlington Waterfront

One of several shots I took at this location. I didn't think of it much at the time but looking through the photos from that day I decided this one stood out a bit. Let's see.. Looking at other photos the name of the boat was the "Moonlight Lady". Looking across lake Champlain toward the beautiful Adirondack Mountains.

Icy Sunset

Taken in Mooers, NY with a windchill well below zero.
My hands were completely numb after only thirty seconds or so of shooting. The light was gone and the temp was only getting colder so I went right home after this shot.
