Sunset Panoramic at Gloucester Point

This is a three shot panoramic “attempt”.  I was not thrilled at how the Photoshop butchered the blend right next to the sun.  Otherwise, turned out pretty good.  I like the HDR effects (Photomatix)….brings a lot of vibrance to the shot.

Here is the original, no HDR.  Enjoy

Smokin’

Had a great weekend with my oldest sun camping and spending some quality father son time with him.  As with most boys, playing in the fire for some reason fascinates them and will hold their attention for quite some time.

As I was sitting there observing, the smoke coming off the sticks, I must admit, was surreal.  With the rising heat from the fire and the slight breeze of the night, it made some pretty cool designs.  Look closely and discover what you see.  Its kind of like looking at the clouds.  🙂  Enjoy

Moon Backdrop

Sometimes things just work out.  I was admiring the moon on the way home thinking how cool would it be to get a shot of a jet going across the moon……as it turned out the stars aligned, and it happened. 🙂

Morning Rainbow….

My neighbor texted me this morning at 730 said there was a nice rainbow outside.  I wasn’t expecting what I saw.  It was absolutely beautiful.  I took a number of handheld shots thinking about doing a quick pano, and this was the result.  It is not great as photoshop didn’t do a good job blending the clouds and aligning the rainbow itself….you can see the line between the two houses.  despite that, you can see how nice it was. Thanks John for the heads up on this one!!
