Fall Evening

Long exposures on rivers are tricky because of the trees and bushes along the side… if there’s any wind, you end up with blurry where you don’t want blurry. A good way around this is to to combine multiple exposures (take a couple of photos with different settings and blend them together in Photoshop.) In […]

I’d passed over editing this one to post it back when I took it a few years ago… but while cleaning out my folders I found that a new noise reduction filter I had really helped with the noise from the higher ISO setting. And I really liked the stillness of the water, which makes […]

Not entirely sure why, but this is one of my favorite trees at the Kensington Metropark in Michigan. (It’s on the South end of the path around the main lake where the nesting island is.) I recently took a trip there to get my season pass. I think what I like about this image is […]
