Slats

Another simple shot using shapes. The view through a slatted roof, taken at an angle to create a radial pattern.what looks like clouds in the blue sky is actually ice on the glass roof.

Sunrise Sliver

It felt like Midas had reached out to the sky this morning-turning it gold.

Taken from a moving car, I had to cut a wee slice of the original photo to eliminate extraneous detail-leaving the whole image at a jaunty angle. The contrast was set quite high to bring the rich tones out-blowing out the clouds in the middle a touch. It felt worth it to render the golds and ochres and to draw out the shafts of light and rich reflections.

I know that there are obvious pixels here. It was a grab shot! But the branches on the right are sharp and the softness is mainly in the clouds-lending an overcast, ominous feel. Let’s call this an ‘oil painting’ effect and pretend I aimed for just this look!
