Extreme Closeup

For my picture taken on Thursday, I took a close up picture of rocks for their unique details.
For this picture, I only allowed the rock with orange moss to appear in color and getting the rest of the rocks to appear in black and white.

Panaramic Photography

I found a blog that has exquisite panoramic pictures. I like these because they are able to include more details than a traditional landscape picture PanoramicPanorama River HDR

5 photos

These pictures where taken in Key West on the beach. For the first picture I cropped the photo to remove some of the water because it was a weird shade of green and brown, and couldnt make it more blue without effecting the sky and building. I made the second picture black and white because the sky was too blown out white and I couldn't correct it without making the water purple. I also cropped the photo down because in the background on the right side there was a cliff drawing focus. The third photo had half a palm tree coming into the top left corner that is now removed. I also increased the lights on the tone curve. The fourth picture had the sky blown out white so I lowered the exposure rating and the whites to increase the blue of the sky and the greenery. For the sunset, i increased the lights and darks on the tone curve so that the water seemed less grey and to increase the vividness of the sunset.

Space Pictures

While talking about long exposure shots and capturing the star trails, I thought about the most famous camera out of this world, the Hubble Telescope. The orbiting lens has captured some of the most awe inspiring pictures of the century. The Hubble Deep Field is one of the most famous pictures that it captured. Taken over ten days in December 1995, this seemingly empty patch of sky yielded over 3000 galaxies. Exposure time varied between 135000 seconds to 350000 seconds.
