HL Plants Before and After

Before photographs with minimal processing and after with full editing and processing of winter plants photographed on the High Line Park in New York City. The yellow flowers are Witch-hazel. I just learned from a fellow blogger that there is a before and after slider. It is one of the blocks we can use in WordPress. This gives you and idea of how much I enhance images in Lightroom and Photoshop to make them look how I feel they should.

Move the sliders to see the before (left) and after (right).









Hudson River Park

We took a walk up top pier 63, Hudson River Park. One of the new features in my Nikon Z 7 is something called Focus Shift Shooting. The camera will take up to 300 shots at sequential focus settings. This is good for macro photography. Then the images are stacked and merged in Photoshop. I took 20 focus shift shots for the first photo below. I look forward to experimenting with this feature.

B and H Optic All Stars

These are the ones I picked to submit for 6 topics to submit for the Optic Challenge. I don’t expect to win. I enjoy seeing what other people photograph. the event is freed and a lot of fun. There are lectures and prizes. You can sign up for the Optic All Stars online event by clicking here. Check it out – you might enjoy it. I always do. In June I won $100 to spend at B&H answering a quiz at the online social during Optic 2020.
