HULK: Smash Puny Humans…

Recently, I was out in my garden taking some macro shots of some plants, when I had a visitor.

From out of the bushes came the green monster, the HULK.  He was huge. Look how he towers over the mushrooms.  And he was fast.  I only got off this one image and then he was gone.

Before he jumped away, I heard him mumble, “Ragnarok”.  I Googled this and I see this is where his friend, Thor, lives.  He must be heading his way.

I look forward to the next encounter with the green beast in my backyard garden.

Until then…

Orchids in Black and White

Well it’s day 5 of 5 in the Black and White challenge.
Thanks to my friend Jerry Ireland for including me in this.
This is one of our orchids.  We, Angela Aristizabal-Myeress and I,
have about 8 plants.  Most bloom several times a year.

Fine Art BW Orchid

Happy Friday.

Here is a simple BW of a beautiful orchid.
I used Nik software to convert from color to black and white.
I like the texture on the pedals.  Very detailed.

SUPER Mario Mushroom

I found this red mushroom in our backyard last night.  Thought it was really cool.  BUT, not cool enough.  I thought it needed something.  Maybe some Super Mario friends.  Which do you like better?  The original or the “friends” version. I used Nik Color Efex to give it a sunlight look.  Then I used OnOne Suite 7.5 to add detail in the muchroom top.

Red Top Mushroom

Macro of Mushroom

Do I need to say it?  OK, Crap it’s Monday.
Here’s something from the backyard from this weekend.
This was shot with the new Canon EOS M.

Lone Tree

While we were vacationing in Colombia, South America, I saw this tree in the middle of an open field.  I liked the way it stood alone.

Tree against the rolling hills.  The tree is outstanding in it’s field, lol.

Butterfly with Filter Effect

I took this shot of the butterfly and then added a filter from NIK to give it alittle something “extra”.

What do you think?  I’d love to hear your comments.
