2015 FAVOURITE PHOTO

Landscape_-_Favourite.jpg

MY FAVOURITE PHOTO FOR 2015!!

EARLY MORNING AT PYRAMID LAKE JASPER, ROCKY MOUNTAINS, CANADA IN OCTOBER.

IT WAS FREEZING COLD...... BRRRR. THE SUN WAS JUST HITTING THE SNOW CAPPED MOUNTAINS. I WAS SHAKING WITH COLD ..... OR WAS THAT EXCITEMENT ?.... ;)

NOPE!!... WHEN I GOT THIS SHOT... I WAS MOST CERTAINLY SHAKING WITH EXCITEMENT!!! I KNEW THIS WAS GOING TO BE GOOD :)

LANDSCAPE PHOTOGRAPHY IS NOT ONE OF MY FAVOURITE GENRES. HUBBY LIKES THE LANDSCAPE STUFF.

HOWEVER IN CONSIDERATION OF WHAT HAPPENED LATER IN JANUARY ..... I MAY HAVE TO GIVE LANDSCAPE PHOTOGRAPHY SOME SERIOUS THOUGHT.

WHAT HAPPENED?...

I WON A TRIP TO NEW YORK!! YES!!... ALL EXPENSES PAID - TO ATTEND A PHOTO WORKSHOP INCLUDING A PHOTOGRAPHY CHOPPER RIDE OVER MANHATTAN! HUBBY AND I ARE SOOO EXCITED! :)

I HAD JOINED AN AUSTRALIAN PHOTOGRAPHY COMMUNITY WEB SITE EARLIER ON IN 2015. LATER IN THE YEAR THEY HAD A TRAVEL PHOTO COMPETITON THAT HAD THE ABOVE PRIZE UP FOR GRABS. LUCKY WE WERE ON A BIG OVERSEAS TRIP ;) ANYWAY, I NOT ONLY WON THE INTERMEDIATE DIVISION OF 35 PHOTOS, BUT ALSO MANAGED TO BEAT THE WINNER OF THE ADVANCED!! - AROUND 46 PHOTOS SUBMITTED.

HUBBY WAS ASTONISHED!! LOL. I HAVE A CROPPED CAMERA. HUBBIE'S CAMERA IS FULL FRAME HAHA :)

~~oOo~~

2015 WAS A BIG TRAVEL YEAR FOR US. WE HAD A 6 WEEK HOLIDAY THROUGH HONG KONG, CANADA, USA AND BELIZE.

SO BELOW ARE MY FAVOURITE PHOTOS. PLEASE CHECK OUT MY BLOG HERE FOR THE WHOLE STORY.

84_Vancouv..High_Key_2b.jpg

THIS IS HIGH KEY PHOTOGRAPHY.

HI-KEY PHOTOS ARE WHERE EVERYTHING EXCEPT YOUR SUBJECT IS WHITE. SO I SAW THIS PERFECT SUBJECT IN STANLEY PARK, VANCOUVER FOR MY HIGH KEY SHOT.

~~oOo~~

Leaves.jpg

THIS IS STILL MY ULTIMATE FAVOURITE PHOTO. I HAVE HAD IT PRINTED ON ALUMINIUM AND HANG ON THE WALL.
AGAIN TAKEN IN STANLEY PARK, VANCOUVER.

I HAD IN MIND RED FALL LEAVES CASCADING DOWN OVER A BENCH SEAT. WELL I HAD NO TIME TO PLAY WITH THAT VISION, BUT MANAGED TO CAPTURE THIS INSTEAD.

~~oOo~~

COUPLE OF SUNSET PIX AT OUR LOCAL NATIONAL PARK.

Ball_in_Plastic_Wrap.jpg

I ENTERED THIS PHOTO IN MY FIRST WEEKLY PHOTO COMPETITION ON AUSPHOTOGRAPHY - SUBJECT "PLASTIC". I CHOSE PLASTIC WRAP AND TRIED AROUND 30 TIMES TO GET A GOOD PHOTO TO SUBMIT HAHA.

YEA.... I WON!!

~~oOo~~

Paper_Boat.jpg

OK.... 2ND COMP .... WON AGAIN!!! YEA :)

THIS TIME I WAS THE ONLY ENTRANT ........

.....

.....

OK, YOU CAN STOP LAUGHING NOW.

THEME WAS "PAPER". SO I PUT MY THINKING CAP ON AND DECIDED TO MAKE A PAPER BOAT AND SAT IT ON SOME BLUE WRAPPING PAPER ON THE DINING TABLE.

~~oOo~~

Two_Illusion.jpg

ANOTHER THEME - "TWO". THIS SEEMED PRETTY OPEN....

OUR ROSE BUSH HAD BEEN CUT BACK HARD AND THE REGROWTH WAS PHENOMENAL. SO I HAD A BRAIN WAVE AND DECIDED TO TAKE A PICTURE OF ONE OF THE ROSES IN A VASE IN FRONT OF MY PORTABLE MIRROR.

WELL THAT DIDN'T WORK OUT TOO WELL. SO THE NEXT NIGHT I THOUGHT I WOULD LAY THE ROSE DOWN ON THE MIRROR INSTEAD.

VOILA!! PHOTO ENTITLED "TWO ILLUSION" :)

~~oOo~~

Candle.jpg

CANDLE PHOTO.

IT'S FUN EXPERIMENTING WITH DIFFERENT PHOTO THEMES. THOUGHT I WOULD GIVE A GO AT A CANDLE PHOTO.

SET THE CANDLE ON A PLATE ON TOP OF OUR CHESS TABLE WITH THE BLACK TV SCREEN BEHIND. SAT THE 60D WITH 50MM PRIME LENS ON A TRIPOD AND PLACED ON AV - F4, SETTING THE ISO AT 500.

FIRST COUPLE OF PHOTOS HAD LENS FLARE SO I TOOK THE CIRCULAR POLARISER OFF..... SILLY ME HAHA. THEN BINGO!! GOT IT! :)

JUST A LITTLE SPOT BURNING IN PHOTOSHOP AND STRAITENING AND CROPPING IN PICASA. ALSO GETTING MORE USED TO BASIC PHOTOSHOP SKILLS.

~~oOo~~

BECAUSE WE HAD TO WAIT A WHOLE YEAR BEFORE OUR BIG OVERSEAS TRIP, I HAD PLENTY OF TIME TO PRACTICE SOME NEW THINGS ON PHOTOSHOP. I FOUND YOUTUBE HELPFUL IN DISCOVERING NEW AND INTERESTING STUFF TO DO.

I DECIDED TO GET A LITTLE ARTY... NOTHING NEW THERE ;) THE PHOTO COMPOSITIONS BELOW ARE OF FREE PHOTOS OFF THE NET MERGED TOGETHER IN PHOTOSHOP.
