The camera and computer add sharpening, we can add more when we edit and the photo gets sharpened once more when it leaves the post processing software. Too much of it leads to halos or white outlines around objects. Three solutions: do no sharpening or do less of it, paint the outlines away or follow some of the more complicated  tutorials on the web. I usually go back and try minimizing the sharpening but I will paint away outlines if all else fails. Fortunately these photos had no unusual problems.

What’s important to me in photography is taking photographs I like, passing along ideas, tips etc. I am constantly trying new things in the field and in post-processing. I have no expectation that everything will work, or that they will have an appreciative audience. Success is measured in many ways and that is something I bear in mind in all my endeavours.

It is always a challenge when you go someplace you have been many times to find a new take, a detail you missed before or a change warranting notice. I was walking towards this building which I have seen many times but it was recently renovated and the new windows made for a great kaleidoscopic effect.


Windows (Two Photographs)

I don’t know what got me taking photographs of windows. I did know a photographer who was enamoured of windows, and did several posters and a short movie. That was in the days of film and his ability to take one shot and get it right impressed me. I still take more than one; it’s not a question of confidence or digital over film, for me it’s a question of getting the best perspective on my subject.


Mural (Two Photographs)

I pass this mural often but only infrequently is it not obscured by cars. I like it because it’s hard to tell what is part of the mural or not. Composing a photograph that takes advantage of the mural but has context makes it your own take on what you see.


Windows (Three Photographs)

Windows have always held a fascination for me in photography. It’s often surprising the results you can get focusing on windows. The keystoning and and other things we need to correct to get a straight picture may be a bit of a hassle but the results can be rewarding.


Wall (Two Photographs)

This is the wall of a restaurant that is set off from the main road and adjacent to a public garden. The house has a Victorian feel to it and that is best captured, in my view, in the black and white version.
