St. Giles & Angels - Edinburgh, Scotland

St. Giles Cathedral

Reflection is a necessary action for the psyche to fully integrate experiences.  This perspective of the kneeling angel (St. Giles Cathedral in Edinburgh) exudes a sense of reflection.  

Upon starting graduate school in 2010, my beloved photography gear were all thrown in the closet in lieu of crisp new textbooks and a financial calculator. As my studies are nearing completion, more photographs and reflections of travels will be shared.  I hope you enjoy the photos I continue to share.

Lit Palm Path (Pseudo HDR) - Balboa Park, San Diego, California

Lit Palm Path (Pseudo HDR)

After experimenting with my new (at the time) Canon S90 in Balboa Park I used software to bring out many details otherwise lost on the viewer.  This pseudo HDR (high dynamic range) image uses incredibly boosted contrast, a touch of white balance, sharpening and shadow adjustment.  In all, the effect is as intended, unrealistic, for a point-and-shoot that is!  Enjoy.

Northwest Corner of Canal & Canal

Dancing lights.  Smooth clouds.  A long exposure, neutral density filter and perfect scenery enabled this Dutch photograph to be pleasing.
