The first art exhibition that I can remember was of the work of Piet Mondrian. This photo reminds me of his work.

This is a silver button shot in colour. I noticed a nearby table lamp was giving interesting colour to the button so I added some colour filters for effect.


Culvert

I shot this because it looked so very abstract. This is first culvert I have ever shot.

A Photoshop HDR post processed in Neo. I am a fan of Photoshop’s HDR. I have tried a few others and always come back to PS. The processing of an HDR photo is always a challenge. Especially trying to avoid going incandescent, and here Neo also helped me pull back where needed (e.g. the sky). I like Neo as an add-on. Anyone wanting to spend some money on trying some different editing tools might find Neo fun and useful.

It is easy to overdo things in most software. More so in the programs with AI and/or that have a very large number of possible adjustments. Setting your own limits is half the fun.

Luminar Neo has several options to change the mood, colours etc. Some of which use Artificial Intelligence. I don’t use presets, I approach each photo on its merits. I like the flexibility to enhance my photos in cases where a little more editing helps achieve my vision without going over the top.

The next six days of photos were all processed with Skylum’s Luminar Neo. I can best describe it as Photolemur with adjustments. It can be used as a stand alone processor but I am using it as a filter in Photoshop.

It remains a puzzle.


What the Window Sees

It helps when the streets are bereft of people. I note that other photographers took advantage of the empty streets downtown in early fall.

My series of abstract window shots has opened my eyes to a new way of seeing the city, more in abstract than in concrete.

It always surprises me how often little things in the urban landscape make for interesting shots.
