A Tulip

The colour version of this shot overwhelmed the central flower, and in black and white reminded me of the darker colder days of spring. It did not take much to isolate the central flower and darken the background to obtain the effect you see here. Were it blown up to wall size you would undoubtedly see the bleed in colour along the edges of the leaves, almost but not quite chromatic aberration. 

Window Display (Two Photographs)I

I have a hard time choosing between these two versions of the same photograph. I often find that window displays, or at least part of them make for excellent and often moody photographs. They give a flavour of the neighbourhood, a taste of style and often tell a story.

Bokeh (Two Photographs)

Who says you can’t get bokeh with an APC sensor. Taken with a Fuji-XT-2 at f8 (16-55mm lens). There are more myths about cropped sensors than there should be (hinta 90 mm lens is 90mm, the sensor does not make it magnify, it only resembles a 180mm in terms of the angle of view).

Copper Butterfly (Two Photographs)

Besides the incredible detail of this butterfly, what amazed me was the camera, the Nikon D500, 200-500 mm F5.6 lens at 500mm, ISO 1600, 1/500 of a second at f8. The D500 is a great camera and I cannot complain about the lens (though it did stick and I had to send it back to Nikon, who fixed it for free in under two weeks).

Chickadees (Three Photographs)

You can always count on Chickadees, anytime of the year, always hoping for food. Flying right at you and just missing. They seldom perch like this one did and patiently wait for their portrait to be taken.

City Landscape

I wanted to try my HDR technique on modern buildings. It worked well, with a few issues concerning very tiny details I decided to remove. There is still a school for the wild HDR that focuses on colour tones. But I think that going a more natural route works nicely for the things I like to shoot in town.
