7. Car Lights

I’ve been wanting to try this shot for a long time… Luckily for me our photo challenge forced me to finally go give it a try. I think I may be addicted now to long exposure car light photos! Both photos were taken on a tripod. I included the settings I used under each photo.

37. Rows And Rows Of…

To fulfill this theme I chose a photo of rows and rows of gondolas that I took when visiting Venice, Italy. I did some post processing with Topaz Impressions and Flypaper textures.

All of Italy reminds me of a painting so I thought it was an appropriate effect to try on a photo taken there.

1. At A Distance

I have only ever seen the St. Louis Gateway Arch at a distance until recently. This time I was able to see it right up close! Even standing right next to it the observation area still seemed rather far away. It really was much taller than I expected it to be…

13. Forced Prospective

Last week I took a quick trip to St. Louis with my husband to visit family. As our plane was taking off for our return flight I was snapping off photos on my iPhone. At the time I was thinking that the photo was going to fit the theme “Rows and Rows Of.” It wasn’t until later when I was looking at the photo on my computer screen that I saw something different! When I showed my husband he just said, “You have quite and imagination.”  If you look in the bottom left corner you will see the shadow from our plane. But, on the ground there is another plane taxing to its gate. To me it appears that the plane on the ground is flying very low and casting it’s shadow on the ground. The only problem is the shadow is going in the wrong direction! But I still like it!
