A Staircase and its Shadows

Everybody and everything has a shadow, real or imagined.


What Lies Beyond?

This outdoor garden at a local apartment building amused me because of the lighting in the background.

Shooting at fairs, in antique stores etc. is difficult because of the lighting distractions (price tags etc.) So the tendency is to use odd perspectives on the subject that may not be easily recognized by anyone but the shooter.


Strange

This photo looked pretty much like this out of the camera – artsy, painterly. Tried to do something to tone it down but then decided its persistence to revert to the original mood needed to be respected.


Never

Sometimes the signs against getting involved are obvious.


Colourful

In my view colour can add majesty and impact. Sometimes even with the mundane.


Repitition

I find it hard to ignore repetition when I see it.


Relaxed

The dog is probably more relaxed than most people I know these days.


Patterns

The patterns caught my eye, the window was a bonus.

A unique perspective on staircases.


The Sky (Two Photographs)

Skies are often an issue in photos so the software gurus keep coming up with ways to replace them during editing. These were done with Skylum NEO.


Mondrianish

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

Reflection

Sometimes my view is distorted.

 


Refraction, Diffraction

My kind of street photography.

I have disabled comments because I have discovered too much detail  (email-ip address) is shared in notifications.

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.


Walking

Noise and grain look a lot alike, in Luminar Neo I was able to maintain the grain where I wanted and diminish it where I did not. I am not sure I will use all of the options in Neo but I am keen to explore.


Girls and their Shadows

Luminar Neo helped me preserve detail in the shadows while I adjusted the exposure of the rest of the photo.


Trinkets

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.


What the Window Saw

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.


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.
