More Canon lens testing, gator roar…with HDR effect

Doing more testing of my new lens, Canon 100-400mm L II, and loving it.

Here is a gator that visits a few times aweek in the cancel behind our condo.
I love the texture and detail this lens gets.  Very sharp.
Where have you been all my life?  Lol.

I’ve added an HDR effect to bring out the detail in the skin.

This reminds me of a little gator saying:
“It’s not that difficult to tell alligators and crocodiles apart.
One will see you in a while whereas the other will see you later.”

Speaking at APG Meeting tonight

I am a member of APG, Athens Photography Guild, in Athens, GA.

I have the honor tonight to give the monthly presentation.  I will be speaking about, “Make Your Images POP”.  Below is the official release from the APG website.

October meeting is Thursday the 17th from 7-8:30 pm in the Community Room of the Lyndon House. The guest speaker will be APG MEMBER JOE MYERESS.
Joe will be putting on a show and demonstration that will help you “Make Your Images Pop” through the use of Photoshop or Lightroom plugins and filters. Joe plans to show just how quick and easy it is to either enhance, or totally change, the look and feel of what you capture in the camera.

Joe has been a professional photographer for over 30 years. While serving in the US Navy as a photographer, Joe spent two years documenting special events at the White House during the Bush administration. Joe now leads the photography team at a national computer and electronics chain.

HDR Kitty

Happy cat Saturday
Here is a shot of my kitty.
She was sleeping and I got down on the floor in front of her.
She woke up and just stared at me.
I added HDR effect by using the brush in OnOne Photo Suite 7.

HDR- Morning Fog

I shot this 3 exposure HDR image on my way to work awhile back.
I over did the HDR effect to give detail and effect to the image.
I used NIK HDR Pro for processing.
