Re: 2018 Project - Focused picture a week (WoodButcher)

Time to catch up. My wife and I headed off in the car for a couple of weeks, with the purpose of heading east to our nephew's wedding in Rhode Island. We wandered the Blue Ridge Parkway, Gettysburg and Acadia NP before the wedding.

Week 24 - First day on the BRP. Not spectacular, but my mission that day was for my wife to see the parkway since she never had and work with her on taking photographs. We had a good time that day, but things took a somber turn that evening. More on that in my next image.

Re: 2018 Project - Focused picture a week (WoodButcher)

Week 25 - So, as we checked into our hotel in Asheville, NC, we got a call that one of my riding buddies, who is also my brother-in-law, had a massive stroke and it didn't look good. He passed away soon after we got the call. Over the next few days, funeral plans were made and I was going to need to get to Phoenix four days after the wedding in Providence. With this hanging over us, it took a bit of fun out of the rest of the trip up to Providence. However, we did make the wedding and had a good time.

On the way we stopped in Gettysburg and toured the battlefield. Being in a somber mood already, the sheer number of deaths at the battle really has us pretty quiet all day. My wife took a nighttime walking ghost tour and I opted to go photograph sunset. Had some fun with a new polarizer filter and ND filters. This image is a stacked, HDR (bracketed) shot. Three images were taken and combined. I set the f-stop and ISO and let the camera modify the shutter speed to give a standard exposure, then -2 stops and +2 stops. So when you look at the shutter speed below, that is for the fastest shot. What that does is capture the bright and dark areas so you can add them into the main shot and have a range of exposure that is closer to what the eye sees instead of the lower range the camera catches in a single shot. On top of that, the polarizer brings out the clouds and the graduated ND filter I used darkened the upper part of the image to even it out some also.

Re: 2018 Project - Focused picture a week (WoodButcher)

Week 26 - I had a hard time picking a photo for this week. I had one from the funeral and just decided it was too depressing. This is one I took and on brief hike when I detoured down the Natchez Trace. Evidently no one had been down that trail yet that day. Every 20-30 feet I'd walk through a spider web. Finally gave up and started waving a branch in front of me.

Week 27 - Happy 4th. This is a composite I did in Photoshop with three different fireworks explosions. It wasn't too hard to do with my limited PS skills.

Really like that sunset shot.

The others are cool as well though.

The number one rule for this forum!
Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen. Eph 4:29 (NIV)
Think before you post. Leave out the vulgarity, personal attacks and foul language!

Quote:
"However lofty the goals, if the means be depraved, the result must reflect that depravity." - Leonard E. Read

Lies are fragile. They require constant attentiveness to keep them alive. The exposure of a single truth can rip through an ocean of lies, evaporating it instantly. - Brandon Smith

If you want government to intervene domestically, you’re a liberal. If you want government to intervene overseas, you’re a conservative. If you want government to intervene everywhere, you’re a moderate. If you don’t want government to intervene anywhere, you’re an extremist. — Joe Sobran

It is no crime to be ignorant of economics, which is, after all, a specialized discipline and one that most people consider to be a ‘dismal science.' But it is totally irresponsible to have a loud and vociferous opinion on economic subjects while remaining in this state of ignorance. – Murray N. Rothbard

When one possessed of the Truth suffers from a heavy heart he is susceptible to a more dangerous affliction — the craving for power to eradicate error, to cause Truth to triumph by force. - Frank Chodorov

Where politicians flourish, long history has harshly taught us, people and their liberty wither. Where the state is god and the "public interest" worshipped, individual man will be found bleeding upon the altar. - Karl Hess

The accepted wisdom is that without the state, society would collapse into lawlessness and crime. In fact, lawlessness and crime define the very nature of the state and the society organized by it. - Bionic Mosquito

But the myth of the rule of law does more than render the people submissive to state authority; it also turns them into the state's accomplices in the exercise of its power. For people who would ordinarily consider it a great evil to deprive individuals of their rights or oppress politically powerless minority groups will respond with patriotic fervor when these same actions are described as upholding the rule of law. - John Hasnas

Re: 2018 Project - Focused picture a week (WoodButcher)

Week 28 - A wedding shot. One of my daughter's best friends through middle school and high school just got married. I had my camera along to get a shot of my daughter all decked out since she was in the wedding party, but ended up with a decent cake cutting shot.

All natural light. I got in position before the cell phone paparazzi so I had a good angle.
