Drain the Colour

A couple of selective colour treatments for the Cosmic Photo Challenge: Drain the Colour prompt.

I thought the mood of the two images made them ideal for draining the colour.

Summer Trees

2021: Summer Greens

A recent experiment with intentional camera movement of trees on the South Bruce Peninsula, Ontario.

I was also experimenting with the recently released TTArtisan 17mm lens, a lens I have quickly grown to like.

This is my contribution to the Cosmic Photo Challenge: In the Trees prompt.

Unusual Angles on Trees

This is my contribution to Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge: From an Unusual Angle prompt. It’s also a contribution to Becky’s July Squares: Trees photo challenge.

July Squares: Trees

Streaking trees. Trees in early spring with intentional camera movement. I was intrigued by the pattern made by the patches of snow amongst the leaf litter.

Cosmic Photo Challenge: From an Unusual Angle

Zooming trees. Created by zooming the camera lens during exposure.

Swirling tree tops. Looking up at tree tops in spring, rotating the camera during exposure.

Inversions

This is my contribution to the Cosmic Photo Challenge: Inversions prompt.

I was down at the local bay photographing ripples at sunrise when Dale posted the prompt so I wondered how one of those photos would look colour and tone inverted in Photoshop.

I then decided to try inverting a few more recent photos.

On the Shoreline

This is my contribution to the Cosmic Photo Challenge: On the Coast prompt.

I had a few ideas for the challenge before deciding to go with a small selection of photos taken on the shoreline of Colpoy’s Bay on the Bruce Peninsula this spring.

Cosmic Photo Challenge: On the Coast

Shortly before sunrise yesterday. A two minute live composite exposure to show some movement in the clouds and soften the reflections on the water.

Cosmic Photo Challenge: On the Coast

Shortly after sunrise last Thursday. I got up in the middle of the night as there was a partial solar eclipse visible as the sun came up. The eclipse wasn’t visible due to the bank of cloud on the horizon.

Cosmic Photo Challenge: On the Coast

Shortly before sunrise eight days ago. There was a thunderstorm moving across the peninsula when I got up for the sunrise. This is a six minute live composite exposure of the storm clouds moving across the bay.

The bay at dawn in late May. I had gone down to the bay with my small, lightweight kit of three manual focus prime lenses to test a different telephoto option although this shot was taken with the wide angle lens in the kit.
