I never grow tired of the beautiful wash of light and color in sunsets. At my home in Vancouver, the sun lowers through mature Douglas firs in my backyard and then disappears behind my neighbor’s home. At the beach, I have an unobstructed view of the last light of day at the edge of the Pacific Ocean. Three photos, same scene, viewed through the natural filter of sunlight in the atmosphere.
Pink tones from sunrise reflecting on this cumulus cloud made it appear soft, like cotton candy. Using a Noir filter creates a much more ominous impression.
Low tide in landscape photo gives us a sense of how big this beach is, and how very far out the tide has receded.
A vertical shot of the same beach vista draws us into the vanishing point.
I have been experimenting with the filters available in iPhoto. I like the effect the one called Process has on this lovely Calla lily.
I’ll close with another experiment with filters, this one, called Chrome adds a crisp finish to the image of an Immature Bald Eagle in flight.
Wishing everyone safe travels as we navigate outward once again. Please stay safe.🐾
Thanks to Tina for encouraging experimentation!
Great selections and tweaks. I like the lily shots and the pink cloud in particular. As much as I admire monochromes, I like color!
Thanks John, I’m a fan of color too!
Terrific examples of how different treatments can change the mood of an image Lindy. Loved the fluffy vs ominous clouds and the beach vista vs vanishing point. Well done!
Thank you Tina!
Nice selections and safe travels to you too
Great images of these scenes
