“Country Road With Stand Of Trees”
I was near the end of a long road trip and I saw this dirt road off the main highway. It was a good place for a pit stop as well as an interesting photo. I think I was in Nebraska.
Verry nice again. Interesting perspective.
Nice, Klaus. This one has a very haunting look
“Early Morning Drive”
Here is another image from my trip out west. I believe this one is from South Dakota. I had been driving most of the night trying to get back home and when the morning came, there was this beautiful foggy light. I couldn’t really stop every time I saw a great shot, so I put on a wide angle lens and started shooting thru the front windshield.

This image was inspired in part by Mike Reignier.

“My Neighbors Ginko Tree” EP-2 with tilt adapter and 28 mm Pentax lens
I have had my eye on this tree waiting for the leaves to start falling and a dramatic dark sky, and today was the day. I think I will continue to shoot this tree as the leaves fall, if I can manage to keep my neighbor from mowing his yard.
Glad you liked the moving train image. As there wasn't much of reflection in the window I made my own by blending a far away shot from a closer blurred tree one as per your idea.
>The very consistent quality and look of your images are incredible.
Thanks Uwe,Keith and Michael. And if I remember right, I ended up losing the dramatic sky because there was a huge tree behind this Ginko and I didn't like the way it looked. I guess I could of put my own dark sky in. I sure do like the tilt adapter.
Nice one, Michael. I love the composition
This Blends-Thread gave me so much inspiration and changed my approach to some pictures i take... like this one. Please excuse the semi-nude.
BTW.: She loves it !

This blending technique has always been a part of my photography; even with film I was always doing multiple exposures. Now with Photoshop the boundaries are no longer there and the only limit is the imagination.

This is a very unique and inspiring thread. Not about gear :-)

>With the last two windy days, all the Ginko leaves have fallen.
What a difference. What tilt/**** adapter are you using?
Oké, I figured it out how a bokehphoto could look like a blend.
Great shot Michiel! Blending over a softer image with sharp textures creates wonderful tones. I spent sometime following a Peacock around a park in Prague but never did capture it the way I wanted.
Beautiful indeed. One of my favourites of yours Uwe.
Uwe, I missed your early "grass in morning fog" images. Very atmospheric with lovely subdued color.

Hmm, delicious series; keep 'em coming Uwe.

Really nice, Mike. I guess you are pleased that all the leaves are off the trees.
Can't agree with the sentiments on the snow though
Different Textures. What fits better?

I agree with Michael
Inspired by the other Peacock pattern (found many today but hard to get):
This thread has yielded some awesome art like images, I did spend sometime trawling the thread but I have not really see where the blend technique is described. Is this a function of Photoshop or other?
