2015 Calendar - Not yet complete I've reached May.  I need to finish it in the next two weeks so that it will be ready to sell in time for Advent.  This year's theme is "Transitions - Bridges and Stairways in Vienna".  The entire design is mine:  A4 wall calendar with a spiral binding, Austrian and US holidays. P.S.  Critiques particularly welcome.
16.09.14 - Focus  This is from my guided photo walk round the old part of Lincoln last night. It was a beautiful warm late summer evening without a cloud in the sky. The lack of cloud meant no sunset to speak of, but the light was wonderful and we played around with diferent ways to shoot sights that have been photographed millions of times before. This is Lincoln Cathedral from Castle Square as you've never seen it before. Depth of field and point of focus is a fascinating subject, it can drastically change the scene and create some stunning effects very easily. One day I want to try this with small model figures in the foreground, I think that would be cool :)

9/16/2014 ~ What IS It??  Modern Art. Austin, Texas.   Is it a crab? A spider? An alien? I guess you decide what this modern public art mosaic is. Found in Austin.  Thank you for the great comments on yesterday's high rise shot!

08OCT2012  Milling Around  Dell's Mill aka Clark's Mill with some Fall foliage all lit up in the morning sun......Great place, scenic area with lots of barns to shoot as well.  Image won First Place in the "Travel Category" n4c.us in October 2012, submitted through the Omaha Camera Club.  Comments are welcome, lots of Wisconsin images to upload....have a great day!  Dan, sorry we didn't know you lived there....great area.
1-16: Thursday morning we woke up to thick fog again. It lasted till about noon. I was able to go out on my lunch break and take some shots along the river right after the fog lifted. The fog had frozen to the tree branches and bushes. I was able to get some shots before it all melted.
Bayview Sunrise, Bayview TX    I think it's a good thing that I'm not going to be living this close to the bay when we move TX, otherwise I'd probably spend all my time on the docks.  I really love seascape photography when I get a chance to do it.  I really like how the long exposure effect smoothes out the water and of course the sunrise reflection.    This is a two exposure HDR and the exposure times are 8 and 15 seconds.  I use Photomatix Pro, version 4.1.3, but thanks to Art's question yesterday have now updated to 4.2.3.  In Photomatix I use tonemapping.  See my post yesterday for more info an links to Trey's HDR tutorial.  Yesterday I also provided links to a new lighting show with Joel Grimes on Framed Network called Lit up, check out  episode seven.  Lastly, Creative Live is broadcasting live and FREE all weekend.  The workshop is titled "Sales Sales Sales," taught by photo business guru Tamara Lackey.  I have seen Tamara's previous workshops on Creative Live and she really knows business.  Creative Live broadcasts replays all night long so you have two chances (or three if you stay up really late) to catch it.      Daily photo: July 21, 2012, taken July 5, 2012
'Blowing Bubbles'...03/30/2011...    Getting a tiny bit closer to where I would like to be...had about 30-40 minutes yesterday to roam about the yard...found this and a few other things...
"The River Flows"  On my way home from an appt. today I stopped at one of my favorite fishing spots on the Rockaway River in my town to grab this capture. Too bad I didn't have a set of waders in my car to get the little water fall that is located just below this scene but I have to be UNDER the bridge I was on in order to get it in the frame LOL. So you'll have to settle for this one.    I love the little water flow control house that is dilapidated here, it adds a nice rigid feel to the scene. I've watched the roof continue to collapse over the years and soon it will just fall in completely. This is one of the best trout spots around here and they stock the river just upstream weekly during trout season from the farm with tags on them so you know if you caught a wild or farm bread fish. The mountain you see in the background is part of the Picatinny Arsenal where they develop & test new weapons for the military.    Anyway, it was an overcast day here as you can see and it really brought some nice contrast into the picture that I liked. I had to make slight levels adjustments to bring the clouds out a bit more and then some selective dodging & burning to the shadow areas but not much more to this one. Oh and a slight filter applied to bring the colors up a bit since it was so dark here. 10 min. of work and it was finished. So I hope you enjoy this next addition to my fall colors month - I hope you all have a fantastic weekend and get out there to enjoy the crisp clean fall air ;)    ALTERNATE VERSION: You can see a second version in SEPIA of this image in my EXTRAS Gallery BY CLICKING HERE    Best Regards,  ~Bill~
I took this picture at an exhibition of Eduard Munch's drawings. Was awarded gold medal from our national Photographic Society
"The Road to Color"  10/16/08  While Driving today I got stuck behind a SLOW POKE on the only single lane road leading out of town and was getting frustrated so I jumped off onto this small fire road and was shocked by the colors in this tunnel like ride. it was raining pretty good all day today so there was no sun and nasty puddles everywhere but I was able to snap this by opening my sun roof and sticking the D300 out on constant focus and shot it while doing about 10 mph. I was amazed by the composition I was able to get since I was in the center of the road and being above the car it gave me some extra height then the usual eye view, I think it worked out pretty well LOL.    In post I did a minor contrast adjustment and small crop off the bottom, that's it! I'm enjoying the colors here now but I see them disappearing very rapidly so I'm going to try and get some shots everyday now until their gone. It's supposed to get very cold here starting tonight in the 50's as a high during the day and low 40's to high 30's at night Brrrrrrrrrr. I got some other shots from today to process yet but I will be putting them in my Fall Colors 2008 gallery when there finished.    Hope you all enjoy your day,  Bill Pador
