Floral Impression #4

Images From My Yard

Nikon D7000 17-135mm @ 135mm ISO 1600 1/640 f/16 Lr3, SnapArt3; PsCS5

This image is the first in a series of 15 floral images that were captured when I assigned myself a project to find images only in the backyard of my home.  I captured this image with a regular zoom lens, not a macro lens, hand held.  I achieved the impressionistic feeling for the image using an Alien Skin Snap Art 3 filter which applied an impasto like brushstroke, then using layer masking in Photoshop I applied a gaussian blur to the background elements.

This image reminds me of something you would find as the “face” of a greeting card, with of course a suitably sappy message imprinted on the inside.


White On Pink Vintage Buick

Car Show Fortnight

Nikon D7000 18-135mm @ 48mm ISO 800 3-bkts f/16 Lr3, HRP1; PsCS5

The last image in this series from the Ontario Police Department Guns & Hoses car show on July 23, 2011 is another Buick.  This car is from the same era as my childhood and I love the color scheme on this automobile, it reminds me of a Dreamsicle.  It took some lawyer masking trickery in Photoshop to get the body tones right and I also added the background blur in Photoshop.
