ISO 80; f/8; 1/4; 11mm (Canon SX10)

Any guesses as to what this is?

Since coming back from my trip to NH, I’ve taken very few photos… its been just too hot… the only time I can get chores done is in the very early morning.  (Like now and I really have to get out there…)  I did take a moment to document one said chore.

Post processing done in Aperture. Rotated, cropped, and skewed the white balance and set extreme vibrancy while lowering the saturation.  Also darkened shadows and added 100% saturation to the blue hue.  Goal was to bring out the rough!

P.S.  I’ve had to concentrate my time on MostlyFiction… I’ll be back to enjoy and comment on your wonderful photos more consistently soon.

(ISO 80 f/5.8 1/320 taken 8:30 am)

A fence is kind of an obvious “line”  but after riding my bike all over town and not finding anything that fit the assignment  — and still worthwhile to look at — I decided to go with this. Maybe, I’ll see something else on another ride or walk.

What I find interesting is that you see the line  created by this style fence even though the wooden logs are crooked.  But because they are crooked, it is more pleasing to look at it.

For post processing, I applied some burn to  the east-facing bricks because the sun made them a bit too bright, and adjusted levels.  I experimented with some of the presets but decided I liked the natural morning sun look better.
