3/31/2017 - Canon T5 - f-7.1 - 1/1600 sec. - ISO 200 - 55mm

This is an image that I took shortly after most of the ice had melted off the harbor and rivers in the area. It was a warm sunny afternoon, and there were a number of people out enjoying the warm spring weather.

Canon T3 - September 24, 2016 - 18 image focus stack

This image is the result of a technique called focus stacking, which involves taking a number of photos with slightly different focus, and merging the in-focus areas from each into a single final photo. I used the alignment engine and masking engine from Hugin, and hand masked a darker exposure of the background into the image.

This is a photo from the Big Sucker Creek along Lake Superior's North Shore. It is actually three photos taken at different exposures combined into an HDR (Hi Dynamic Range) image, and then mapped back into the color space that a computer can display. I have been trying a number of different programs to produce this sort of image, and this particular one was merged and tone mapped in Google's HDR Efex Pro 2, which is part of the Nik Collection.
