There was this fence I was looking at while waiting for my oldest to get out of Sunday School (or whatever they call it now). There was a better shot, but the angle was wrong, and there were some shrub branches in the foreground that interfered with the scene (I knew this while I was there, but wanted that effect).
Again, everything in Lightroom.
Took the two youngest to Powder House Hill in South Berwick. Our own little ski/snowboard/sledding hill here in town. Took over 200 photos, these two wipe outs were some of my favorites. Sledding and wipe outs are a great past time out/up/over here.
Used the 70-200 on these (actually for all our shots).
Oh, found another benefit to the 40D, I was able to take most of the photos with my gloves on!!
Did the organization and some tweaking in Lightroom, but had to drop to Elements (4.0) for the montage. I don't think this is possible in Lightroom alone (I could be wrong though).
OK, a bit of a different effect for this year ;)
Again, nothing but Lightroom, playing with the Sliders to the Right trick with a few presets and a crop.
In the spirit of SP Friday, I had a winter shadow shot, but saw this tractor (and one beside it) after I shot my shadow. I took a few shots of the tractors as a backup. It was a good thing because the sun was behind some high clouds for the shadow shot, there wasn't enough contrast for it to work (even with slight mucking around in Lightroom).
This felt much better when I was taking it. I don't think it's all that bad.
Here is an example of wishing I'd remembered to pack my 580EX2, it could have used a bit of fill.
I actually rotated it to add a little something to it during PP (in Lightroom).
Another Lightroom only photo. . .
Oh yeah, it was about 8 degrees (Farenheit) when I took this, rather cold out there.
Yeap, another shot with the 28mm off the end of my camera.
OK, this one came out better today.
It seems to work out better when I actually make some time during the day (read: sunlight) to take a shot or two.
I am working with a demo copy of Lightroom
primarily to help organize the 5000 or so images that I am converting from 35mm negatives. What I am liking about Lightroom is that I can import some completely different photos (read: pbase PaD stuff) and NOT ruin the organization effort of my conversion process.
So back to this image. It is a tree branch with a nice snowy background. I believe I took it at +1 maybe +1 1/3 stop (Yeah, I could just look at the Exif) and then used a Lightroom preset (Age photo) which I really like.
Oh yeah, the EF 28mm f/1.8 hasn't come off my 40D in the past week+. Something about the 40D is making this lens a joy.
My first entry for the new year. . .
One of those "It really sounded like a good idea at the time" kind of shots.
Snow, off camera flash, below camera, aiming slightly up 1/128 power.
