Day #690

Day #690 Title: Mono Textures
Location: At home
Camera: Canon EOS 30D / 24-105mm EF f/4 L IS USM
Notes: Spent the day with a friend and we helped each other sort out various tech problems we were having. Very productive but tiring. Unfortunately, we didn’t get a chance to go out at sunset (what we saw from the window was nice!) and so this is all I managed to take. By the time she went home, my eyes were beginning to see things a little bit funny, so I played about with this to make it more exciting.

Day #652 Title: Crewed By Pigeons
Location: Heybridge Basin, Maldon
Camera: Canon EOS 30D / 24-105mm EF f/4 L IS USM
Notes: After a business meeting at lunch time, I decided to stop off for a quick walk at Heybridge Basin to get some fresh air and walk off lunch! The marina was full of colourful boats, but this old wreck in the estuary also caught my eye. It doesn’t look very seaworthy – and only the pigeons dared stand on board.

Day #485

Day #485Title: A Touch Of Burgundy
Location: Roxwell
Camera: Canon EOS 30D / 24-105mm EF f/4 L IS USM
Notes: Despite the sunny weather, I only managed to take about a dozen images today, and this was the best of them. Seeing it was a similar subject and point of view to yesterday’s shot, I thought I would give it a similar treatment. Let’s hope I come up with something more original for tomorrow.

Day #388

Day #388Title: Contrasts
Location: Cambridge
Camera: Canon EOS 30D / 50mm EF f/1.8
Notes: Not much time for photography today. I grabbed this just as the light was fading, and was surprised by the contrast in colour temperatures – dusk making the brickwork blue and yellow light coming out of the windows. But when I got it home, the quality wasn’t too great. So I had a play with the Photoshop filters again, and this is what I came up with.

Day #381

Day #381Title: Charcoal Vision
Location: Billericay
Camera: Canon EOS 30D / 50mm EF f/1.8
Notes: I seem to be having a 50mm lens week… I went out for a quick walk this morning before a meeting in Billericay. Unfortunately, I’d left the camera in Aperture Priority mode from messing about yesterday, and the lens was set wide open at f/1.8. Great for decent shutter speeds in grey conditions, but rubbish for achieving any kind of depth of field! Trouble is, I only noticed when I got home after dark. Hey ho, out with the Filter Gallery in Photoshop in an attempt to make some sort of silk purse out of the sow’s ear! Actually, I’m reasonably pleased with the result.
