I captured this image on the sailing trip around the great lakes. The Blue Heron is a truly magnificent bird. Although I did not paint this it is I do have control over the effect generated by the software and therefore it is not just an applied filter.


Abandoned Lawn Swing

Abandoned Lawn Swing - Colpoy's Bay

Abandoned Lawn Swing – Colpoy’s Bay

This abandoned lawn swing sits on the shores of Colpoy’s Bay near Wiarton Ontario. I felt the grungy look of the swing warranted a grungy texture and frame

Created from a single raw image adjusted in Lightroom with the texture layer added in Photoshop.


Lost in Art

Lost in Art

This street musician at the St. Jacobs Market was lost in his art. It was as if he was being transported back to his home land playing for family and friends. Or maybe in a concert hall before thousands of fans. The instrument is a Niko which apparently is the most famous Chinese instrument in Japan.
I have been in a bit of an experimental mode with my photography lately. I guess you could say I have been getting lost in my art.

Possessed in Lightroom and Photoshop with a couple of texture layers added.

The is the Grange built in 1817 and was the first home for the Art Museum of Toronto. It now sits behind the Art Gallery of Ontario providing a contrast of old and new. The first image has be adjusted in Photoshop and Topaz adjust and the second was further adjusted with Snapseed. I couldn’t decide which I liked best so I will leave it up to you to pick you favorite.
