My hardcore whupa$$ post processing work, taking my frustration out on a poor red plant.

Then all heck breaks loose, decided to just go for broke and do an abstract shape design to match my mood.

Wade, I like the color composition, strong yet simple. The glow conversion needs to be in frame for the glow to work best for me. That way it will have a static element to contrast with. The red filter makes for a powerful image.

Great suggestion about the frame and on the glow, they always need grounding.

Day 29: An alternate shot of the fence, this one a crop from a rather messy original that had a pile of junk on the left and part of a tree on the right. This is cleaner.

Day 29 Bucket - Casket at Gravesite

Here is the "tossup shot" I captured following the service. I didn't feel I could ask the funeral director to leave the frame, but perhaps he adds some needed balance. But I do like the composition in general.

Answer to my what is it BW abstract.

Parking area of a store, huge huge...... palm tree, (probably 2.5’+ diameter, maybe even 5’ circumference at chest height.) One of the largest and tallest I have seen in Florida in this area. Early early am light as you can tell by the shadows behind, and you can see a smaller one in left of image. This bark looked like concrete or man made plastic. As I was walking by I just had to stop and take a snap.

Roystonea regia. Or Royal Palm tree.

Original, and the conversion I posted over in my main thread.

Day 30 bucket shots...

A farther back image of the mural (as far back as I could go)...

As mentioned in my thread, this is on the side of an old theater, so the mural has a movie theme.

A shot from the side...

This was a contender for the post of the day.

The same people that did the mural, also painted unused telephone boxes (the few that there are), and electrical boxes around the city...

The statue on the side of this box, is from over at the mill buildings (I forget the name, but it was about some of the women mill workers). On the front are some butterflies (I didn't shoot the front as there was some graffiti). In any case, way better than plain green or gray boxes.

Royce fell off this ladder by slipping forward, and bumping the back of his head on the rungs. He controlled the fall pretty well, but none-the-less, after thinking about it for a second and a half, cried a bit and had a "papa hold me" moment. Right after that he went right back up the ladder, and had a great slide experience. Bravo Royce!

Besides it's unique interaction with light, I also like Washi F film for the high percentage of keepers from a roll of it. All of the above (and at least one from the main thread, came from the same roll. Most rolls of F are like that - once the flow starts, it continues until the film runs out. Washi F rolls are stated to be 24 exposures long. The datasheet also says there is an extra long leader to prevent 'light piping' into the actual images, and it is recommender to shoot at least 6 frames before shooting anything critical. I load the film in the dark, and get at least a half a dozen extra frames at the end of the roll. And a good thing too, cause I'm never done when this film hits 24 exposures!

It was great seeing your work with film. One forgets all the challenges and details when working with film and all the developing process that goes with it. It was enjoyable to see that here.

A day 31 try at lens flare on an iPad, and original of the lizard.

Sorry for the original tilt, iPad camera is at the corner and I tried to get the lens as low as possible. Camera lens about 1.5’ away.

Wade: Seeing the originals of that lizard really ups my appreciation for the skill as the master of the iPad.
Lens flare, interesting but not as controlled and complimentary as mechanical lens would deliver.
