A Photo a Day #205

Evening Rose


I saw this beautiful red rose in the garden a few days ago perfectly lit by the evening sun. I ran into the house and grabbed my camera. The orange hue in the image is all created by the amazing sunlight.

A Photo a Day #199

Busy Again


I took this with my zoom lens as I didn't have my macro and the detail I picked up was great. I shot with approximately a 1.3x zoom. The colours were played up in editing and I also applied a gaussian blur with a soft light filter in Photoshop. I'm pleased with this.

Paddling


My brother in the sea at Hastings a few summer's ago. I need to get out and take some fresh pictures, but luckily I have a bit of a back catalogue of some half decent images. The over -exposure and filtering create a fresh look that I actually like about this photo.

Playtime


People might recognise this skate park from the South Bank in London. I took this a year ago, but played around with editing it today. I blurred all but the skater and increased the saturation.

Hard Work


Another throwback to last year in the Algarve on holiday. This lady was working out in the heat, putting others to shame.

Shattered


This was taken last August in Portugal. Portimao in the Algarve was a town with some interesting ramshackle buildings to photograph.

A Photo a Day #188

Closing Up


As you can see, Poole quay was very fruitful for photos. I like the composition of the people here with the young woman as a focal point. I played with colour to add to the thematic elements of the image.

Fe2O3


This follows yesterday's shot in style. I will be on the look out for more block colour backgrounds with interesting textures to develop this as a series. By Poole quayside I snapped this rusting boat.

Nitrate


This wall was a great subject and one of those images that comes already composed for you. I did have a shot of a chap walking by, but he actually took away from the disturbing features of the wall. The juxtaposition of the graffiti, rusting and the flowers looks great.

A Photo a Day #185

On the Tracks


Taken in Poole High Street where the railway track crosses through the town.The sky is a bit bleak, but I didn't want to Photoshop a new one in. I quite like the colours and contrast I got here, but I'd have liked a willing model to add something more interesting to the shot.
