PS Challenge – June 6, 2017

Today’s PS Challenge image comes from our backyard, the rose bush along the wall behind my shop. I love this little rose bush and the blooms are beautiful. I have to work on my photography skills for this flower – so far I haven’t made the shot I have in my mind. I decided to share this, however, so just ENJOY! PHOTOROGR

Not a PS Challenge – May 18, 2017…

I couldn’t resist the pun, especially since I’ve been posting so many PS Challenge images lately. I still take pictures with the big camera – sometimes the big lens and sometimes a smaller lens – depending on the situation. I’m finally starting to trust my instincts for shooting, but I still ask for a lot of critique in my processing. Thanks to everyone for your comments and critiques.

Let’s get to some pictures.

This image of a Candy Tuft is similar to a recent PS Challenge image, and was taken with the PowerShot camera.

The big camera mounted on a tripod, 5 exposures to maximize the light.

From my drive up Monitor Pass yesterday. I found the moon setting over the Sierras.

Another image of the stream flowing from Lake Heenan, a popular fishing hole! A California Department of Wildlife truck had just pulled out. It had a big tank on the back of the truck, like those used to transport fish for stocking in waterways (a big wink for my friends who fish!).

I was intrigued by this tree in the middle of a meadow. I made multiple images and experimented with several techniques. The ground was very wet from the winter.

I visited the Nevada State Railroad Museum a few weeks ago. The following images are from my series on the locomotive models on display in the museum. Each model is 30″-36″ in length. The project is still underway, but prints up to 12″ x 36″ are available.

I have many more pictures to share, and I will post more frequently – I promise.

Enjoy – PHOTOROGR
