Now that I’m out here in New England, I thought it might be time to revisit some shots I took when we were out on the Pacific Coast last fall. Going through my Lightroom library revealed a number of shots with potential, and this was one I decided to go ahead and process and see [...]
Fisherman’s Terminal, Seattle And, yes, that gray sky is probably here to stay, more or less permanently, until next July. The splashes of color from these fishing boats, though, can help make up for all of the gray and rain of the coming months.
A wider, panoramic shot of the East Waterway of the Port of Seattle. You can see a tugboat and two big container ships. The interesting about the container ships is that you can’t say whether or not they are loading or unloading because they load and unload simultaneously — a fact that I just learned [...]
More from my little morning jaunt out to Kerry Park a couple of weeks ago. The light coming through the fog was just amazing. Almost looks like I was on another planet, but the light really did look like this.
Got out of bed early a couple of weeks ago and went the few blocks from my house over to Kerry Park in Seattle to shoot the sunrise, and I almost missed this shot, as the fog was really moving in fast and soon obscured the mountain within about 5 minutes of me setting up [...]
Well, this one now seems to be gaining some popularity out on Flickr. When I took it, I didn’t think the light was right, but thanks to some (subtle) HDR processing, I managed to bring the light out of the foreground and get the clouds and mist just right. I hope I can keep using [...]
OK. I had to post this one to my blog as well. It’s the result of some serious digging into Photomatix Pro for the HDR creation and tonemapping and then Lightroom for final processing. I am simply amazed at what these software tools can do to make images like this much easier to achieve. In [...]
Well. I had quite a time a week ago Friday hanging out on the fishing pier where the West Seattle water taxi comes in from downtown. I had intended on getting only some twilight skyline shots, but the fishermen and the water taxi were there and so I turned the tripod and got a few [...]
Had a lot of good light out at Kalaloch on the Olympic Peninsula. It’s quite a dramatic place no matter what the weather, and I tried to capture this feeling in all of the photos I took on Kalaloch Beach, Beach 4, and Ruby Beach. This photo is of my wife and son walking up [...]
Seastacks on Ruby Beach in Olympic National Park on the Pacific Coast in Washington.
This is probably my favorite photo from my latest foray into high-dynamic range (HDR) photography. Taken on the rough and wild Washington coast in Olympic National Park at Ruby Beach, I think it captures that sort of other-worldly, almost prehistoric feel to the place. When you are here (or in La Push or in other [...]
Just a recent photo I took + a little editing in PhotoShop = not a bad picture at all. (Taken from the balcony of a friend’s house in the Queen Anne neighborhood of Seattle). Even though I didn’t specifically process it as an HDR shot, it has that look and feel about it.
