Victoria Memorial Sunrise, Kolkata India    I found this photo when I was going through my Victoria Memorial photos for an upcoming blog post on my adventure photographing it.  I have shared a few HDR photos of Victoria Memorial in the past, but this is the first single exposure I have shared.  You can see a similar HDR version of this photo here:  http://smu.gs/AsXi97    WHAT DO YOU THINK?  WHICH DO YOU PREFER?

I always think my most newly processed photos look the best, and any time I re-process something I usually like the new version better than the old.  In some ways processing is similar to writing, and the first version you make is just a first draft, which gets better and better with each revision.    CAN YOU SPOT THE SUN IN THIS SUNRISE?

Curve    This was taken on Wicklow Town Docks last Thursday. The top fish box was from Killybegs, Co Donegal which is my hometown.    Looks like we might get our way and eventually be able to migrate and keep our communities, friends/family list and click on commentators name to get to their site    Copy of reply I got asking why these features couldn't be retained if I  as an enthusiast migrate     Hi Mary,    Thanks for contacting SmugMug and for your feedback! We really do take it to heart.    Please don't think we've just abandoned all of these things. We haven't, but due to time constraints, we weren't able to ship new SmugMug with some things we would have liked to. We very much needed to get the 'foundation' in place, launched, and any issues resolved, to continue building upon it.     Your Legacy SmugMug site will continue to function as it has, so there's no urgency in Unveiling new SmugMug to your visitors. We are still very focused and committed to Moms and Dads, hobbyists and enthusiasts, and aspiring pros alike, and hope to be able to reintroduce or reinvent the things important to you on the new SmugMug platform.    We're sorry for your disappointment, Mary. Please stay tuned!    All the best,    Steve Mills   SmugMug Support Manager   Image Specialist & Pro Concierge   BizDev Account Manager   http://www.smugmug.com/help    Thursday 1 August 2013

Yellow columbine; best viewed in the largest sizes.  I admit I like the detail and the light on this one.  Thanks for the comments on the flying shot of the hawk.  I always appreciate that folks take the time to comment.  It really keeps me encouraged and inspired.
It's a Bee's Butt photo!    Just running through some old photos - and this one of the bee's butt in the cactus flower made me laugh.  You've heard about 'bee's knees' but you don't get to see a bee butt very often  I hope it makes you laugh too.    Best viewed in X2
4.11.08 - Magic?  This image is a strange combination of my last three Dailies. Taken at dusk, traffic light streaks, Autumn colours and mist. I love experimenting with long exposures, you never know quite what you're going to get, but you often get something magical. Apart from the obvious effects on movement you tend to get lovely rich colours. This is pretty much straight out of the camera.  Mind you, I nearly got a lot more than I bargained for! Sadly, this bridge is a popular suicide spot as well as being a great viewpoint. I've taken many photos from here, and so has every local photographer that I know. But today a passing motorist spotted this guy on the bridge and phoned the Police because he thought the guy was a "jumper". One Police car appeared below, stopped the traffic and asked if I was OK, while a Police van stopped alongside me and suddenly I had the undivided attention of four Police Officers! Luckily they quickly realised that I was only taking photos and we had a laugh about it, but it does make you think!!!  Here is an alternative view from the bridge that was a close contender today;  http://johnloguk.smugmug.com/gallery/4053630_nJYqk#410154110_DiLxk
November 7, 2009 - Reflections at a local Madison park.     a short trip to Madison,Wisconsin on a beautiful, sunny weekend
Sep.22,2006  To smile or not to smile  Wanted to capture the drop reflections again. Was experimenting with how many smilies I can squeeze into the drop based on how far away the drop was from the background. This seemed optimal without cluttering up the drop too much. Wish I got this a bit more in focus.  Here's the levels corrected version based on all the comments.
04/03/10 - Sarah P. Duke Gardens I really wanted to see the tulips this year at Duke Gardens, and after missing the botanical gardens at the River Banks Zoo earlier this week due to time constraints, I was pretty determined not to miss Duke this year too.  So, I headed over with the kids yesterday.  I know it wasn't the most fun thing for them, and on top of that it was out right HOT, but they were real troopers for me, and I took them to Lake Crabtree to play afterward and threw in a Frosty to boot.  Actually, I think they had a good time except for the heat.  There are rocks and bridges to climb on there, it was pretty to them too, lots of dogs to stop and pet along the way, and plus they do all these make believe games on all our walks.  The gardens, as you would expect, are just beautiful this time of year.  The daffodils and camellias were finishing up, but the tulips and many flowering trees were gorgeous.  I didn't have as much time as I wanted to take pics, but I took enough.  We even got to see the GBH on the side of the bigger water area.  That is one social bird!  I like the intense color in this shot.  Joey said it looked like cartoon tulips:-)  I tweaked it just a tad across the bottom to get rid of a few distracting spots and I did an auto contrast.  It's very close to sooc.  The blue color is pansies.    More Duke Garden shots from yesterday are here: http://fotomom.smugmug.com/Duke-Gardens/Duke-Gardens-040210/11706535_gUsTb#826083083_ahUEh  Glad you all enjoyed the shot of Johnny having fun in the water minus knowing how cold it was.  They were out in the kiddie pool yesterday afternoon reliving their water fun from the day before.  HAGD, Maryann
Waiting... dreaming... - Mar 2 2009  What do we do when we just have to wait... dreaming of a better life? I haven't got a clue what this man was thinking about while he was waiting to give the 'all aboard' signal.
07-09-2011 "Brotherly Love"  These are the boys of friends of ours who were also in Florida while we were.  I took many photos of the family and have been editing to show options of processing.  I liked this one after I played in Topaz Adjust.  I hope they like what I've done with some of the shots.  Comments are always appreciated. Donna
Iris with raindrops; best viewed in the largest sizes.    Thanks so much for your comments on my shot of the fly.  It is good, although not at all surprising, to learn that so many of you also take your camera into bathrooms.  We truly are fanatics!  Enjoy your day!
The guide poles show how low the lake level was when photographed.

This was the main lava flow as it emptied into the ocean.  I was sitting in the bow of a boat, bobbing up and down in the ocean, when I captured this pic.  You can't really see the scale of the eruption in this shot, but about 15 feet of the "shore" is shown here.  You can see the steam created when the molten rock hit the ocean - it would sometimes obscure the lava flows - but it was like a dance, when the steam cloud would part for a few minutes allowing a glimpse of the lava beneath.
Its been so hot outside and our air conditioner at work has been out for the last two days...but I made myself get out in the yard for a few minutes and I'm glad I did or I wouldn't have seen this beautiful butterfly!
Victoria Memorial Sunrise, Kolkata India

I found this photo when I was going through my Victoria Memorial photos for an upcoming blog post on my adventure photographing it. I have shared a few HDR photos of Victoria Memorial in the past, but this is the first single exposure I have shared. You can see a similar HDR version of this photo here: http://smu.gs/AsXi97

WHAT DO YOU THINK? WHICH DO YOU PREFER? (I don't think this will be much of a contest ;)

I'm amazed at how quickly my processing techniques evolve. I always think my most newly processed photos look the best, and any time I re-process something I usually like the new version better than the old. In some ways processing is similar to writing, and the first version you make is just a first draft, which gets better and better with each revision.

CAN YOU SPOT THE SUN IN THIS SUNRISE?
