“Morning Gold” – Back-lit grass

I made these back-lit images not long ago in the early morning as the sun was rising low in the sky, when the grass and other vegetation was covered in dew. Using a shallow DOF, many of the tiny droplets of dew are out of focus resulting in a nice “Bokeh”.  The golden sunlight adds warmth to the shot.  Love me some back-lighting.  Hope you enjoy!

Old Truck

I made this photo from 3 exposures  (-1 EV, 0 EV, +1 EV- Handheld) taken on a recent trip to Galena, IL. and subsequently combined them in Photomatix Pro. I then made a few slight adjustments in Lightroom giving it that kinda far out, unreal look which I think looks cool on old vehicles.  If you are new to HDR imaging as I am, you will find this great tutorial very helpful.  If you enjoyed my photo please share with others and/or leave me a comment.

Sunscreen

Just when I thought there was nothing left of the sunrise to photograph the other morning….after the colors had all but faded away, and I was back in the car and down the road a way, the sun popped up right behind a row of tall thin trees.  I made this abstract image from one of the several shots I took out the car window with my 300 mm telephoto with a 2x teleconverter on it. I hope you like it!
