Bryce Canyon

Two years is about my threshold for photos. If I haven't worked through them by then, then they're likely never going to see the light of day. Sometimes you file mental notes away -- like "one day I gotta go back and sift through those Bryce photos when the clouds came through." So, from the spring of 2010 -- Bryce Canyon. I remember putting on my 12-24 lens just as these clouds came through ... and I just sat back and shot as wide as I could. Ran this one through Nik HDR Efex and Nik Color Efex to boost contrast, color and details. One frame captured in camera - 1/250 sec at f/13, 12mm.

Sports Portraits #4

Here's another photo of Casey at the pool. 1/640 sec at f/2.8. A couple of Photoshop tweaks here: 1) I shifted the color of the goggles to a light orange, and 2) I blended a texture into the background to eliminate some distractions.
