the wind, the sea, the sky and the storm on RedGage

the wind, the sea, the sky and the storm

On the left the latest add to my RedGage portfolio.  This photo was taken back in 2009 in Poetto Beach, Cagliari – Sardinia, and indeed it does capture the wind, the sea, the blue sky and the ranging storm approaching all in a single frame.

I will keep adding more to RedGage in the next days, so stay tuned 🙂

I have added this work today my my RedGage portfolio, and will be adding a few more in the next couple of days.  Shot was taken at sunset in Little Venice back few years ago.

Il Lido @ www.turno.net

Content build up of my new photography site  www.turno.net is progressing steadily.  Here I am sharing the latest addition, but there are a few more there.

Still some major work to do on the layout and social sharing.  I will get there as soon as possible 🙂

The original photo also in this case is not a new one, but I have re-edited it using my new skills with digital image processing.  Hence I think it is much improved compared to the one I have posted a few years ago.

I have also scaled down this site quite a lot already, and more will go during next week.

Happy sunday 🙂

selective colors of a dragonfly

I am quite pleased with this work.  I think the b&w background and the cut of the frame work very well, as much as the lucky position of the dragonfly in full light, against a shaded darker background even in the original color picture (thumbnail image below).

The smooth transition of the corner in the b&w area help in giving even more prominence to the dragonfly and its role as main subject.  And also add quite a mystic old mood to the frame.

 

dragonfly – a selective sketch

I am still playing with selective colors.
This is another editing work I have done recently of an image I have taken back few years ago in Sardinia of a small dragonfly.  Do not ask me if this is endemic to Sardinia or not … I have not been able to figure that out 🙂

Anyhow, I wanted to give a sketch like feeling to it.  I have also tried to produce smoother transitions between the color part and the b&w one, but I must say I have not been able to produce anything decent (in my opinion).

The original full color image is posted on RedGage, and I am attaching here below a small thumbnail of it.

blue bridge – regent’s park

blue bridge - regent's park

I am quite happy with the result of this study.  It might look like a blend of IR photography and classical one. But in fact it is not an IR.

I have only worked on selective colors editing to give prominence  to the bridge itself, and of course to the reflections of the trees and the bridge itself on the water 🙂

I am still experimenting with old style effect and also quite pleased with the rounded blurred edges.

Also in this case I am posting the original colors frame I have used.  You can see slightly larger formats in RedGage.

And I personally think the selective colors one has an edge over the original full colors frame 🙂
