Haven't picked up my camera in a bit, so today I took a couple and thought I'd show a few that are not shots from the North.

Both shots below taken in Port Dalhousie on Lake Ontario.

First attempt at Daytime Long Exposure. (No tripod)

Second Daytime long exposure. Wish I had my tripod for these.

Looking for Inspiration

Give me a sign. Songwriter/Musician Mike Steward looks to the Heavens for inspiration. Thought putting an aging filter on this was appropriate.

Were the long exposures hand-held, or opportunistic prop (eg, post or rail with or without some item for a pad)?

Some top-notch images and ideas here, MJ, but I do wish you'd taken the Mrs out into the carpark and found her a Hog to keep company.

I propped the camera on my bag and used a zero density filter. I forgot my tripod back in Alberta [slaps head]. I wish I could have taken the Mrs out into the parking lot and put her on a hog, but I'm afraid it will have to wait. Right now she's more than I can handle.

Port Dalhousie, not far from Niagara-on-the-Lake, one of my favourite places in the world, if I didn't live in England, I could quite happily live there. The best cup of tea I ever had was in The Olde English Tea Shoppe in Niagara-on-the-Lake. I am a coffee drinker, but the tea was so good that I had 2 pots along with scones, strawberry jam and clotted cream. I asked where they got the clotted cream, they said they had it flown in twice a week from Cornwall, now that's what I call attention to detail!

The way I've done it is to select the bit/s to stay in colour, invert the selection, then desaturate the inverted selection; finish by polishing (fine blurring) the selection edges. Another way is to superimpose the coloured bits onto a desaturated copy of the same image and save the result; the first and last steps are the same. Either way, it needs good eye-mouse coordination to carefully trace the selection outline.

The only thing I did was increase the local tone slightly using Corel Paint shop Pro 6X. The lighting and hue are untouches as is the clarity.

This filter deepened the clouds.

I'm loving the photographs. Especially the storm clouds over the truck. I Drove Semi trucks for a while, and my dad drove for 30 years before me. Trucks were an everyday thing in my life. I can say that there were days I looked out the windshield of my truck to storm clouds like that and though "this is going to be a fun night."

Very much enjoyed all of them, especially the lighthouse in the background and the rock in the foreground. I can't ignore the rock, of course, but somehow the lighthouse demands more attention, even though it's not up front. More proof that art isn't what the artist sees but what the artist makes us see. Excellent. Thank you!

It is a yellow Buick with a Nova Scotia plate, it's called Love my Buick. He's kind to let us print it at our biz, I needed something larger for the space planned in our home. It's going to rock!

Thanks folks rumor has it that I am a DEAD MAN WALKING if she discovers the sleeping pic. I think she looks angelic, but there may be some fire and brimstone when she see's it.

Haven't picked up my camera in a bit, so today I took a couple and thought I'd show a few that are not shots from the North.

Both shots below taken in Port Dalhousie on Lake Ontario.

First attempt at Daytime Long Exposure. (No tripod)

Second Daytime long exposure. Wish I had my tripod for these.

that water on the second picture looks amazing, almost like a painting or like ice! and I like how mysterious the first picture is, these are really amazing. How did you do that? :3

Your shots are impressive! What an amazing work... Especially loved the "Ice Storm" ones. Black and white photos have something... You really know how to capture beauty. Wow!

I used a polarized filter and did a 25 second exposure which makes the waves look misty or frozen.

Brilliant as always. Is it weird that your photos make me want to be a long haul trucker? The first one looks like the inside of that truck is about as cozy as a log cabin with a big old fire raging in the fireplace. I don't even try to pick favs from your photos anymore.

Don't do it! Stick to writing. Admittedly, the bunk of a truck during a snow storm can be a warm safe haven but, it can also be a very lonely place.

Today, is Thanksgiving in the US and I'm thankful for the return of your photos. They're very cool... great shot of the raven but the colors and stars behind the glowing eyed silhouette of the truck is magical
