The White Tree

One of our apple trees out front is really quite white with blossoms at the moment. I thought this would look good in black and white, and it turned out well, so here it is.

Edited with Picasa.

first (somewhat) successful HDR

So it looks a little... unnatural, but I wanted to get a shot with a higher dynamic range because part of the photo was washed out from the sun. I took two shots, hand held, and then ran them through Qtpfsgui.

May 6 2009

Cool light that day. And those (top) trees - I've noticed them for a while, but this is probably my best capture of what they look like to me.
First two edited with the GIMP: sharpness, contrast, brightness, I believe.

tools on... a wall

This is from 2007 -- it's the side of a building that is part of our town antique shop (open only in summer).

Note: 1600x1200 was the original size of the photo, so of course I didn't resize it, because, well, it was already there. So, enjoy with knowledge. And be sure to point out any problems.
