Three Fingers

Three Fingers, originally uploaded by ronWLS.

Another one from Friday evening when the light was rocking! Processed in Lightroom 5 and then played in Silver Efex Pro. I really need to get the Wacom tablet working so my “playing” would be so much easier than playing with a mouse. It’s also amazing how playing can really tax the 16GB of RAM in my PC. It’s hard to believe (or at least wonder how I did it) how I got by with 2GB of RAM not so long ago. I am just about ready for 32GB.

Broken Down

Broken Down, originally uploaded by ronWLS.

Sometimes I find an image that cries out for a certain post processing look. Yeah, this is one. This old style look from onOne’s Perfect Black & White just seemed right for this image of a broken pot. The processing helps give a little mystery as to when exactly this all happened. This could be old stuff ( or just old looking.)

The Golden Hour

The Golden Hour, originally uploaded by ronWLS.

Tonight the Golden Hour was. Some great light to be had. I saw what was happening and was wishing I was somewhere good with my camera and then I realized that just outside was pretty darn good. I really love it when the does some nice stuff at the end of the day. It can sure be a beautiful world at times!

More Colorless Flora

Another Black & White Flower. These are always fun to see how they compare to the colored version. You lose and you gain with such a conversion.

Another Time

Another Time, originally uploaded by ronWLS.

Sometimes I find an image that really works well with a certain B&W conversion. This was one of those. It really looks like a place that could have been photographed just about any time in the last 100 years or so. This particular preset in Perfect Black & White just seemed like the correct one to use.

Valley View

Valley View, originally uploaded by ronWLS.

Another view from the gift shop area of the Mt Shasta Lavender Farms. There really are many photographic spots in this rather small place. It is a great destination if you have a camera and are in the Mount Shasta Vicinity.
Used onOne’s Perfect Black & White for post processing tonight.
