Before and After

This is my contribution to Tina’s Lens-Artists Photo Challenge: From Forgettable to Favourite prompt.

Initially I struggled to come up with an idea for this challenge. I ended up scrolling through some of the folders of photos on this tablet looking for inspiration. At that point I quickly came up with a couple of photos showing before and after.

Lens-Artists: Before and After

The full frame, unedited version of the European Robin standing on my 600mm lens. The camera isn’t square or centred in the frame and has tape on it. There’s also a light band running at an angle across the top of the frame.

Lens-Artists: Before and After

The edited version. I squared and centred the camera, cropped the top of the frame and took a little off the bottom. I then converted the camera to monochrome to hide the tape as much as possible. I have been using a variety of edited versions of this image as my online avatar for years.

Lens-Artists: Before and After

An old post box in a sandstone wall at Bickerton Hill in southern Cheshire, England. A film shot from the mid 1980s. I have scanned the original with two different scanners and copied the slide with two different cameras. All the digital versions have a strange colour balance. If I get the grass and red post box looking right the sandstone and sky look wrong.

One Word Sunday: Homophone

A selective colour treatment converting the image to monochrome while leaving the post box red.

Giant Butterflies

This is my contribution to Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: None Alive Animals prompt.

As is sometimes the case I had a few ideas for the prompt before changing my theme for the post when I started selecting photos.

I changed my theme after coming across a photo of one of the giant butterfly garden ornaments I sometimes pass on my walks around the neighborhood. There are three of them and I have photographed them many times over the past few years with a variety of cameras and lenses.
