Just a bit of fun really.
These were all taken in late afternoon sun, very contrasty. I've used 'daylight' to keep the golden tones . . . and then had a little fun using Viveza from Aperture.
This first one of the house does show how much dynamic range there is in these shots - it was a very contrasty shot, and the shadow really was deep shadow:
Taken with 24-70 Zeiss
I'm always a sucker for a 'lone tree' This one had the sun right behind the trunk, but there is still some detail in the grass in the foreground.
My favorite water hydrant - it's in the middle of nowhere, but it has a very special yellow, and with the glancing evening light
Just a nail in a rusty wall
This one is for Irakly's benefit (if he should see it)
