OK, a little bonus today. I've always thought I should go and shoot the Roy City Christmas lights. Well with the big snow storm we are having I thought conditions would be perfect. So I took my rugged camera out in the cold and snow and blowing and took a lot of pictures. I did a couple of panoramas. This is the second. The first is way to big to post. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.
It's been to long since I posted. I have a goal to post at least weekly. It should be that hard, but it is. So I thought I would just post another of the shots I took at Temple Square a couple of weeks ago. Hope you like it.
It's been a while since I've had the opportunity to take pictures of people (on purpose). The specific request was Temple Square pictures with Christmas lights. Not a real easy thing to do. Here's one of the four I ended up with.
I recently upgraded my HDR software to Photomatix v.4. Some major enhancements! Can you tell? I took these pictures at sunset in downtown Ogden about a year ago and HDRed the top one then in v.3. The lower one I just HDRed in v.4. BTW there was no retouching of either photo in Photoshop. If you've got Photomatix it's worth upgrading (it a free upgrade from v3 to v4).
The title for this post is kind of dumb, but oh well. Back when I was in college taking photography classes (1976) we did something called solarization. This is a photo I used in the assignment, I replicated the process in Photoshop and here are the result. It was a lot easier to do in Photoshop! The photo was taken on the mountain above Provo between Christmas and New Years as I was there visiting my grandparents.
