Well today was interesting, I won a competition!! WHOOPI!! and I got to play with a brand spanking new Nikon D3, £3k worth of kit, smashing camera, the low light low noise is amazing compared to the D2x, heck of a difference.

Todays Image was taken for an in-house comp, the theme was freedom, I had a few ideas, but finally ended up with this image.

The next theme is time, I had better start thinking??????

Something a little different today, a "high key" portrait, it wasn't taken as a high key but I have given it the effect in photoshop. It was actually taken in a small room with a metz flashgun using the Gary Fong diffuser. Wayne
PS tomorrow I'll probably show my competition entry.

Busy couple of days, I have been playing on photoshop. Here are a couple of images I took today in the garden, both macro shots with a shalow depth of field.

Well a busy day today, had the boys home from school, so my routine goes out the window for a start! then my youngest needed a haircut badly (and thats what he got! a bad haircut) still as a plus at least he looks like a boy now.

Heres todays pic, it's an old fortified house on the mountain near where I live, courious place to put it though it's overlooked on all sides by higher ground, and as dear old John Wayne used to say "Yaa gotta take the high ground" so not the most tactical placing.

I have given the shot a fake infra red effect in photoshop. Wayne

It's been another fine day here. Wayne

Had a nice days yesterday and today, yesterday I spent the day with a fried talking photoshop and cameras. Today I went walking this morning, and caught up on the washing this afternoon.

Heres a couple of pics from today both shot with a 1.4 lens so theres very little depth of field. Wayne

Yesterday I went walking in the hills around my house. You see I'm entering a competition about "freedom", thats the theme, so I had some new ideas and wanted to get some shots for it. I knew of one idea I could use but it ment a trip up the mountain, I'll post the pic here...... after the comp! (don't want to give my ideas away do I??) Instead heres a few other shots I took, both the same shot, but treated differently. See which you prefere. Wayne

Interesting day today, I went to visit a wedding fayre only to find it's next week, not today as I was told (so bit annoyed).

Then I picked up a lens adaptor for my camera, this means I can use any of my Pentax lens on it, and I have LOADS of pentax lens.

Heres todays photos, mixed bag, one of tower bridge at night, the other two were taken on the local mountain in thick mist. Wayne

A second post today (a first for me) just to add a few more images, one is a strong black and white, the other another illustration effect.

Hope you like them. Wayne

Heres another "illustration" type image, it's been ajusted in photoshop to get the look of a print.

It's a part of Neath abbey not far from where I live. Wayne

Something different today. Heres an image I have converted to an illustration type effect.

The model Chantelle was shot in a studio with Canon eos digital camera.

On the home front the children went back to school today(thank heavens) so some peace in the house. Wayne

Heres todays pic, it's part of the gower coast (Wales UK) between Porteyenon and Rhosilli somewhere (I did a lot of walking that day) if memory serves me well it's towards the Rhosilli end of the walk.

It's been given the HDR treatment to "spice" it up a little. Wayne

One of those days today, I have had mild toothache for a few days, as it was getting worse I went to the dentist. It seems I have cracked a tooth, he repaired it, but I have to go back in 2 weeks to see how it going, if it's no better (or worse) I'll have to have "root canal treatment" I suspect thats not good!

Here are 2 pics today, ones a house at St Fagins (near Cardiff, Wales UK) the others a skull I found on the local mountain. Wayne
