Lately I have been experimenting with a plugin that takes images and applies different processes to make them appear as paintings. This is one I particularly like. You can see more at my website http://bit.ly/1MhwnVH
I went to CMHR the other night. This is the illuminated walkway that guides you through all the levels of the museum. It is quite an amzing structure.
Just a reminder that my photo exhibition is coming up.
The show itself is on from June 1 through June 21 in the Clarence Tillenius Gallery, 2nd floor, Assiniboine Park Pavilion.
Most importantly, the reception will be on Thursday evening, June 4th, from 7 – 9pm. I really hope you can make it. Snacks and beverages will be available.
There will be 29 pieces on display, all taken in Assiniboine Park throughout the seasons. Only 3 pieces, in a different format and size, have been shown previously so it is virtually all new stuff.
Please bring a friend or forward this invitation to anyone you think might be interested.

Judging by purchases and general interest, this was the most popular image at my show at Pulse Gallery on April 11. It is a simple photo of plant stalks in the late fall reflecting on water.
Pioneer Grain has a few of these brilliant orange grain elevators left. Let’s hope they don’t go away.
The roof line of the Confederation Building is very impressive in its detail.
A simple shot of the roof of the planetarium at the Manitoba Museum against a (nearly) clear blue sky.
One of the herd of bison at Lake Audey. This is another image that, on second look, seems to be more interesting than at first glance. I think the blur and apparent motion of everything except his massive head is what gives it some dynamic.
Sometimes you make an image and when you first look at it, you think; not what I saw when I took it. The before image is what my initial attempts to turn it into something resulted in. I brightened it a bit and increased the contrast and increased the shadows. It still didn’t look very good.
A few years later, I took another look at it. After a lot of additional work, I ended up with the ‘after’ version. I think it looks a whole lot better and has become one of my favourite images. I was able to bring out the structure in the clouds and selectively increase the brightness of certain parts of the image. Now it kind of pops for me.
Sometimes an image has to percolate for a little while before you see the potential in it.
This image has been kicking around since 2010 but recently I decided to take another look at it. Made some adjustments to the sharpness and saturation. Turned out not bad.
