The Old Barn

Old Barn

I’m revisiting a couple of older images that I’ve reprocessed using new tools. I hope you enjoy.

This image was taken near Leader, Saskatchewan, Canada on’s Extreme Saskatchewan 2010. I used Nik Software’s Silver Efex Pro 2 to do the black and white conversion.

The End

On a recent trip to a friend’s farm, I happened upon a couple of old combines. It’s been many years since these machines have harvested a crop.


Back To Banff

Vermillion Lakes

An over cast day at Vermillion Lakes in Banff National Park is always a treat for me. The shaded light is ideal for it’s evenness. No harsh shadows glare out at and you can explore the details in your scene. I was glad to retain some detail in the clouds above Mount Bourgeau. A tree floating in the lake adds some interest to the foreground.

I had got my D300s wet in the rain at Lake Louise, and it was still drying out when we got back to Banff, so I turned to my backup camera, my old D80.

Is Life Complicated?

Prince Of Wales Reflection

I’m running behind this week and won’t be doing a lot of writing.

Sometimes you create an image with a lot of detail like this one of the Prince of Wales Hotel in Waterton National Park. Although I like the image, I find the front to back sharpness and detail to be a little distracting. I could have gone for a vignette to highlight the hotel, but didn’t think the effect would suit the image. What would you do to accentuate the hotel?
