    Beautiful. The 'squares' technique is interesting.

    Thanks Michael. I might print this as multiple pieces and mount them as a collage.

    Beautiful Michiel. I love the combination of the bokeh image with the subtle web.
    You have also been doing some great work over on the bokeh site.

    “Two Photos Of Max” Olympus EP-2

    Here are two shots of Max taken during our recent trip to South Carolina and Sunset Beach North Carolina. Look for his feet in the buggy shot below.
    And, yes the birds were really there, this time.

    That's kind of interesting, isn't it? I love the color.

    What would happen if you tried one without making a mistake?

    Re: Blends

    Really nice Max photos, Mike

    I wonder how Max will accept #1 when he is in his teens?

    I love #2 but you must be careful not to push it toward the genre of Stephen King or Rosemary's Baby Max may hate you for that.

    "Fly Over", EP-2 tilt adapter Pentax 35mm lens

    Here is one from our recent vacation to the beach. I have a series of photos like this. Just not sure if I will do them as B&W or color. The next one I upload will be B&W.

    Re: Blends

    Very good idea to do the coastline with the Tilt adapter from above. Gonne try that next week when I have the opportunity.

    Love the two babyphotos (or should I say young man). That magnetic hair!!
    The second one is even a bit scary.

    Re: Blends

    Thanks Michiel. I just realized that the title "Fly Over" might have given the wrong impression. I was referring to the birds flying over me. But now that you mention it, it does look like I am high up looking down at the beach. Actually I was shooting at eye level.
    Max does have great hair and now that you and keith both mentioned it, the second is a bit scary.

    Installation Shot

    The image on the wall is a piece that I recently did for Jack Stack BBQ. It is an old family shot that I added “mojo” to and the print is 6ft x 8ft. The second image in the post is a close shot of the print, and the 3rd is the original imagethey gave me.

    Beautiful work, Mike. The size and color works so well in the environment

    That looks like some challenging family to control - still, the Dad looks like he's up to it..

    The front kid looks as if he keeps a key to keep his flies done up - but he forgot

    Great stuff

    Thanks Keith. I don't really know the family, but the boy up front runs the place now. This is the 3rd piece that I have done for them. They have been a good client.

    That is really funny - I didn't realize that was the family that owns the restaurant. When you are next having a beer there, ask him what the key was for and why he has his flies undone

    Against The Wind EP-2 tilt adapter with Pentax 35mm lens.

    In the original shot, the two birds were out of focus because of the tilt adapter, which is what made me choose this shot. I then processed it in Silver EFX Pro 2 and got these weird little marks going up and down on the file. There were 3 rows of them. I took 2 out and flipped the other one because I thought they looked like birds in the distant and they sort of mimicked the shape of the blowing grass.

    Gotta give this one a reprise, Michiel

    What is it about your colors that can always identify a picture as a Shierbeek?

    “Last Harvest”

    It was a great day for photography today, fog and light rain and on the cool side. I only had time for a quick stroll around the backyard though. I guess the garden is about finished.

    “Trees Reflecting On A Golden Pond”
    Here is a shot from a little trip around the park with Max. I used a tilt shift adapter with my 28mm pentax lens on the Olympus EP-2. Of course I added some “mojo” to it.

    Winter Blur #1

    This is part of a new series that I will be working on this winter of B&W shots of winter trees. Shot with a tilt adapter and my EP-2, this image will be printed at 40″x40″. The size makes a difference with the abstraction and the grain.

    Very nice, Mike. Next step has to be film. Try Arista 400 in Diafine and you will need less mojo . I'm hooked.
    I like the big trees - are you going to try some with overlays of separate images to create the trees?

    Re: Blends

    Thanks Keith. I did use SilverEfex 2 to convert to the B&W and choose a pretty grainy film look, I think it was Tri-x.
    I have tried overlaying other images, but so far I haven't been successful. But I am going to keep at it. Just need the right images.

    Tree Reflecting in a Pool of Water

    Another in my "Obscure Trees" series. Not sure I'm done with this one yet. It's two images combined with texture then converted to B&W with SilverEfex 2.

    Nice Uwe. Did you do the blending in the phone or on the computer. That's a nice texture, so I was wondering if that came from an app?

    Was on the phone. Used 2 Textures in Photoforge2. I like it too because it looks very soft.
