Storm Light

I was out last weekend as a storm blew in trying to get some shots of the clouds, I wasn’t entirely successful finding a view point that worked to show the storm but there was some interesting light coming through the clouds – and some good rainbows too!

The Bow

I have on a few occasions tried to take images of my ‘cello but for a change I thought I would try concentrating on the bow, trying to find as many different ways as possible. My first attempts follow, quite abstract for the most part.

Starry Night

I still have a few shots from the beach on Friday to work through, and I would love to get out and try some more shots of the Milky Way although I don’t think I will get such a warm evening again any time soon. Both of these have had a bit of processing 🙂

Before and After

I had a request to show yesterday’s image before conversion to monochrome, it seemed like a good idea and I thought I would add another comparison as well just for good measure. The more I look at the images the more I like the monochrome versions, although I do have a bias to monochrome anyway so it may just be me.

Thoughts and opinions are welcome. The monochromes were processed with Nik Silver Efex Pro 2 and were intended to be contrasty if that is a word.

Windswept

A monochrome from yesterday’s trip. The trees shapes are fabulous with the prevailing wind distorting them into strange shapes. I like converting them to monochrome because it helps to emphasise the shape and texture of the trees, colour feels like a distraction.
