Another week has gone by and luckily more work has been done on the house:
And, of course, I have to hit you up with another sunset shot!
We also have a new little bird that was in the house… it was flying around and I finally got a hold of it to put it outside. I placed it on the sliding glass door ledge and it was just hanging out while I was taking pictures. Then, it popped up and flew back into the house! Last time we were there, it was still in there, so it may be a permanent fixture… I wonder how Oliver will feel about that? (These are SOOC)
While in Philadelphia, a quick shot inside the Philadelphia Convention Center. These large structures with the exposed supports are always very cool. This particular location had the added bonus of having skylights.
Processed this photograph with HDR Efex Pro by Nik Software, PhotoTools 2.5 Professional Edition by onOne, FocalPoint 2 by onOne, Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 3 and Adobe Photoshop Extended CS5 [Mac]. I believe I’ve found a pretty good rhythm when working with all of these tools now. Photoshop will always be a learning battle because of the depth of the program, but the others are coming along quite nicely.
While traveling with my good friend Rich, we stumbled upon a few nooks and crannies… what we thought was going to be a dead-end, wasn’t… Take a quick look at his rendition as well.
I spent quite a bit of time with this image in Photoshop, onOne, Photomatix and Lighroom to get what I was seeing through my eyes and in my head while we were on location. I believe this is a fair representation of both what I was seeing and what I wanted to see … if that makes sense…
