After I shot “Southbound,” which I posted yesterday, I turned, took three steps around and shot this. I used a very similar workflow, except this is a tad more contrasty (me being me, you know). Also, the light is a little different facing north. I then employed a cooler mild blue toner vs the ambrotype finish I used on “Southbound.” I’ll be interested to see what everyone makes of the contrast between the two.
This is dedicated to 5280LM’s Greg Stene, a Springs native. Greg is on the mend from a nasty accident and here’s hoping he’s back up and running soon.
Hey everyone. I have entered the annual Doors Open Denver Photo Contest, although who can say why? I invite everyone to stop over to the contest page and if you think I’m worthy, throw me a vote. If not, go to the contest page and vote for whomever you think is worthy.
Also, I believe a couple more 5280LMers are entering – Greg Thow and Michael Pecaut. We’d be honored if you voted for their extremely nice work as well.
My three entries are “Ludwig” – the piano shot you’ve seen here – “8:14,” a detail of the clock at Union Station, and the Hostel Fish interior, “Skylight.”

Apparently I like garden ornaments.
I fiddled with the picture a bit more and corrected for the lens (after Sam showed me how to do it). Unfortunately, when doing the lens correction, it looks like i lost some of the light at the top of the picture. I kinda liked that. I couldn’t get the exact same setting as last time, but it’s close. Maybe a little dark. Oh, well. Anyway, here you go. Just the one picture this time.
Some more pictures with the new camera. This time from a hike in the Yucaipa Hills. None of these felt particularly bright, so they have a bit of a dark tinge to them. That first picture, of the tarantula, could have been much better. But I had the wrong lens on the camera and Hina (my dog) was becoming interested, so I had to hurry. Oh, well. Next time…
It’s been a while since I’ve posted anything. I got a new Nikon D7200 a few weeks back and I’m trying to figure out how to use it. Here are a few pictures from yesterday. I missed a lot of the blooms in the small park in front of City Hall, but there are still a few that are hanging on. These are all taken with a 55-300mm 4.5-5.6G kit lens.
