    Category: Snow Photographer: martijnvdnat Photo: “Winter In Weipoort” I love the tones here — it just screams winter!

    In my last post, I shared my early reactions to the software processing program from Skylum, Aurora HDR 2019.  In a word: WOW! In recent years, I’ve been shooting many bracketed landscape images to combine into HDR (high dynamic range) images. Using Lightroom, I haven’t always been happy with the results. Based on the past…

    Category: Outdoor Photographer: Matt Cuda Photo: “Great Blue Heron” Wow! What a moment! Whenever I see a great blue heron I can’t help thinking that I’m looking at a prehistoric creature, and they never fail to stop me in my tracks.

    Category: Street Photographer: Paul Munford Photo: “Strollers” You know I love a good double take. No pun intended, but look at this! I mean really look. Is it a double exposure?
