photography and musings by an amateur photographer aspiring to be more
Just something to prove that I haven't completely forgotten about posting photos. Taken in Hyannis, MA.

Taken back over Thanksgiving from the balcony of a Bed & Breakfast we stayed in.
This one came out a bit dark, but with the magic of a gradient filter in Lightroom, I was able to get the exposure at the bottom looking good and still have the excellent contrast in the sky.

Sometimes post-processing is just plain overrated. Taken at a higher ISO (500) with my Canon Powershot S95 resting on a handrail. Almost no post-processing done here, just these amazing colors speaking for themselves.
This was taken at Peak's Island, Portland, ME right before Hurricane Irene hit. We were attending a wedding and mother nature held her wrath off long enough for us to enjoy the wedding and this absolutely incredible sunset.

Finally got a chance to do some processing on a lot of old photos recently. Here's the result of one from Newport, RI back in March.
This is the Marble House, one of the mansions there.
Not much processing here: Some minor cropping, slight vignette around the corners and some use of the brush to lighten the exposure on the right side.
Also my first use of Lightroom 3! Had to upgrade as I bought a new Canon Powershot S95 and needed support for the camera, which Lightroom 2 didn't have.

Decided to brave the cold and wind after today's blizzard to get a few shots today. Made it about 500 feet down the road before my face almost froze off, but managed to snap a couple of decent shots. I also found out that my gloves do a pretty good job of letting me operate my camera.
This would be one of my first attempts at trying to process photos in greyscale in Lightroom. Mostly tweaked the white balance to get some interesting B&W tones.
