"Mushroom and Tomatoes, Rome"
Beautiful. How did you do it?
I simply love this image! It reminds me of some of the lost ranches in Norway where my wife and I visited her ancestral home/ranch a few years ago. It had the same (similar) color of paint. The ancestral home/ranch, though about 200+ years old, was still standing in fair shape. The surrounding area was quiet and peaceful. All the best, Leica 77.
Where do the days go? Some very creative and wonderful images in this thread as usual. I haven't been doing too much "experimentation" lately, but I had some fun with what became part of my lunch recently.
Thats the essential of food photography:
Shot it, eat it !
This one is called "Joe's Office"
I didn't tone down (sic) the concrete as the background contains many modern houses that spoil the look. Yes it's Spain, technically - this island in the middle of the river is Spanish territory but the aforementioned background is Portugal across the Miño river.
This one is called:
"Fishy Fruit - Two"

Stay tuned, because four weeks from today I will start my BAD project.
The BAD project will be to do a Bokehgraph A Day during my next cruise, which takes me across the Atlantic and through the Mediterranean to Rome, then fly back home via the UK. This will involve something like 30 bokehgraphs - which should keep the thread numbers up
Your BAD Project will be a real GOOD project for the Bokeh Thread. We shall stay tuned. The next cruise sounds exciting, sailing across the Atlantic, traveling through the Mediterranean to Rome, flying to the UK ... One of my future travels will involve flying to one of the archipelagos in South East Asia. Alfred Russel Wallace might have sailed through these islands in scooners. All the best, Leica 77.

All the best,
Thanks God, it's Friday

Have a nice weekend,
This one starts with one of my own personal favorite images, and (although I don't do this often,) here is the original.
In the previous post I put a texture on it to get it up here again (it's posted somewhere else) - and the texture just extends the Galaxy across the whole image (and adds a lot of noise )
This is called:
"Where to now, Alice?"
This is called:
"Where is my hat?"
It was taken almost at dusk with a Canon G9 (that's why its in the compact forum) But for some reason, a few tweaks with color and saturation in Lightroom really brings it alive. I think I have the wall artist and the graffiti people to thank. And, thank goodness, someone left a blue bike there.
Thanks Uwe, Leica and Michiel
To throw in a bit of fun - this is the base image for "Where is my Hat?" and "Where to now Alice" (I was inspired by seeing the Alice in Wonderland movie yesterday)
This carving is on an old tree trunk in a Toronto park - although I think someone has since burned it down
This is called:
"Hello Mary Loo"
This thread has inspired me to try blends, something I'd never really considered before. Following are my first attempts. I'm trying to illustrate a Venetian canal transforming into a forest (inspired by a scene in my favorite book). Do either of them work? Any comments or suggestions?
I was randomly trying a variety of blending modes. Does anyone know of any good web tutorial on blending?
On basic blending I used Lynda.com (but you have to pay)
On Mike Regnier's techniques go to Chromasia.com (but you have to pay)
I also like the tutorials on textures in stuckincustoms.com (but you have to pay)
It's worth the effort, and expense
