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 🙂
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.
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.
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.
