I love this tree along the Chattahoochee River National Recreation Area trail. I’m usually running when back there so never have my camera and certainly not my tripod. I took both out for a hike on Friday afternoon and got a picture of this twisted tree.
How I did it:
5 exposures 1/30 sec – 1/500 sec
Shot on Tripod
Processed in Photomatix Pro 5 & Lightroom
This past weekend our son’s PRUMC soccer team the Ninjas played their game at the Atlanta International School fields in Buckhead. What an amazing venue for a soccer game! The fields are all turf, the historic buildings hover over the fields, and on this day the sky was just perfect. Here is a shot of the back of the school and some action shots.
Last night I headed over to the North Fulton Golf Course in Chastain Park to capture some pictures of the supermoon. This vantage point gave me a great look at the moon along with a view of the Buckhead skyline.
Last night I went for a bike ride to capture some night shots of Rosemary Beach. This is the Town Hall and US Post Office on the coastal side of 30A. The stars were amazing and show up well in this picture. The image was shot with a Nikon D800 and 14-24mm f/2.8, 100 ISO, 5 frames between 1.3 seconds and 20 seconds. It was processed using Photomatix and Lightroom.
I love this walking bridge over the swimming pool in Sea Island. In the summer this pool is stacked with kids and teenagers, but in February it’s cold as ice and empty. This is a 5 image HDR shot on a gorgeous winter day.
I have tried to capture this shot before and was stopped by security. This time I stayed in my car and was able to get the image I was looking for. The clouds and sky were pretty amazing for about 3 minutes, then it was gone… This is a 3 exposure HDR processed in SNS-HDR Pro and Lightroom. The Church on the left is Wieuca Baptist Church and the building on the right is the Ritz Carlton Residences.
Again, the weekly subject of “extreme detail” was difficult because I was adamant not to shoot a macro picture. I got a new car a couple of weeks ago, the new Ford Explorer. It has rained almost every day since I purchased it, including as I was driving it off of the lot; so today I finally went and got a car wash. Since it was all shiny and sparkly I decided to get a detailed shot of the front grill. I processed it using SNS-HDR and Lightroom.
