I saw this tricycle the last minute, and I chose a low angle to demonstrate the effort, the sky, the ships at the pier and because I moved fast they didn’t have time to change their expression. Everyone in this photo has a genuine expression that I love! The driver is putting an effort, the grandfather is feeling moderately happy, the grandmother is wondering what will be their day in the sun, the lady standing by is patiently waiting to cross. I chose the black and white because of the hard light and the contrast. It’s just another example of "Expression over Perfection” for me. Enjoy. Cozumel, Mexico.
Thiksay Monastery and Gompa are rather well known to the travelers as well as the ones who see photos of Ladakh. It is a monastery strategically located on the highway going out to Manali and Changathang from Leh in Ladakh.
A giant prayer wheel enroute to the Gompa lay waiting for the devout and the believers to rotate it and disperse their prayers. The valley, visible through the rather large opening, stood motionless and silent as if waiting for something to happen.
Nothing much happens though bar the progression of tourists as they stop over and take photos. I wonder if they pray for better photos when they turn the wheel. I really do not think so. Most Indians seek not peace and quiet or a meaningful life but a life of untold monetary riches.
Captured this with four RAW shots. Used Photomerge in Photoshop CS6 to create this panorama. I increased the overall saturation with Hue/Saturation in Photoshop. Curve adjustment to increase the overall contrast. 1 layer mask in soft light mode at 50% gray, using brush tool to lighten and darken some areas of the image, to bring out details. Topaz DeNoise to reduce noise. Topaz Clarity for additional boost in color and contrast.
Vancouver British Columbia Skyline During Sunrise Panorama. Have been away for a few days to beautiful Vancouver BC. Weather was nice and got some great shots of the city. Joe McLaughlin came along for the ride. Also met up with Mikul Culver. Still the same awesome guy we met up with the last time we were up there. Hope everyone is having a great weekend!
