April 9, 2012    Well I was bored one day..............you know that could start all kinds of stories.    But on that 'boring' day I decided to play with this shot of raindrops on my Carolina Jasmine.  I applied a solarize filter, and I rather liked the result.  You all know I love color, so this version really gave us lots of color to admire.  I hope you enjoy.    I know it's a little crazy, but sometimes we have to do things that are just for the fun of it to see what happens.  :-))    Check this out in X2.

Have an 'over the top' sort of day my friends!    Linda

Shanghai skyline in the early evening    The day I arrived in Shanghai I lucked out because it was clear with very low pollution and perfect for photographing the Shanghai skyline at night.  When the conditions are right, the skyline, reflected in the Huangpu River, is one of the most beautiful in the world due to the many coloured lights that are lit up at night on all the high rise buildings. Tripod, 28 mm, 0.6 sec;   f/11;   ISO 1250    14/1/14 www.allenfotowild.com
Harbin ice festival yesterday early evening, in frigid temperatures    All the buildings are make of blocks of ice from the local river.  The structures are huge and beautifully lit at twilight with a myriad of coloured lights    15/1/14 www.allenfotowild.com

Railings and stairs at roughly right angles to the lowering afternoon sun produced an interesting geometric pattern.    DP100-2014  Posted April 10; processed ditto.    I had initially planned to try to derive some letter shapes (N or Z) from the shadows, but couldn't get anything I liked from the shots I'd taken.  So I decided just to go with a geometric abstract.    Taken April 9, UM North Campus, Ann Arbor  (Title:  Four O'Clock Shadows)

Fly-Fishing the Blackstone20 April 2014 -- 110/365Cumberland, Rhode IslandToday was a day of dynamically changing photographic objectives.  The weather was beautiful, and after a conversation yesterday with a friend about motion blur, I decided to head to a particularly scenic section of the Blackstone River Bikeway.  My plan was to setup my tripod with the Albion Mill in the background, and capture some motion blur of cyclists crossing Albion Road.  If I got some blurred cars in the scene as well, even better.  When I arrived, though, I noticed that the water level was extremely high in the Blackstone River, and the water flowing over the dam was heavy, fast, and creating significant churn in the river beneath the dam.  Okay, scratch the motion blur, let's move to Plan B.  Taking the tripod and camera kit down to the river bank, I setup for an HDR composite of the dam and the whitewater beneath it.  Before I had a chance to take the first photo of what I planned to be a 7-exposure set, this fly-fisherman arrived and started to wade out into the river.  Scratch Plan B and let's move onto Plan C.   I photographed him from various angles, some with the waterfall in the background, some with the bridge in the background, and from this angle that gave a better sense of his activity without the other distractions.  I went with this one.  The moral of the story is to be flexible and go with the compositions that develop.  I could have forced myself to stick with the original plan, but if I did, there's no telling if this scene would ever present itself again.Post processing started with a classic filter in Topaz B&W FX.  I adjusted color sensitivity sliders, adaptive exposure, regions, contrast, boost black, boost white, and protect highlights.  I then applied a dodge to the highlights and midtones, followed by a levels adjustment, both in PSE.
