Hi again everyone. I want to thank everyone for their comments last month. I always learn from them and would have liked to respond to them but time did not permit. This month I have a picture that I have been working on for about two years. I want to show the grandeur of the sunsets in Hawaii without all the man-made artifacts. Most of the work involved cloning out the lines and poles. That was a tedious job. A levels adjustment and increased vibrancy was applied. I had to be careful with the cloning to get a natural looking result. That took a lot of time. I looked at the work so long that it looked OK but I’m not sure. Let me know what you think. Does my work look manipulated? As always I am looking forward to reading your comments.
|I have been interested in photography all my life and have been taking photographs for about forty five years. The first years were point and shoot images taken with a Minolta 35 mm and later with a Canonet 35 mm camera. I had lots of fun and took lots of pictures. About ten years ago I became serious about learning about the nature and mechanics of taking pictures. I was a junior high school teacher and had set up a photography option. I read everything I could find about the “how to” of photography. I now take both film and digital photos. I have a Canon T70 camera with an assortment of lenses and two years ago I purchased a Canon A80 digital camera. I now get all of my film pictures digitized so that I can manipulate them on my computer. I am a member of the St. Albert Photo Club and the members of the club have been a big help to me in developing my photographic skills.My email address is firstname.lastname@example.org.|
