Cape Cod || Canon EOS 10D/12.0-24.0 mm | 1/45 | f/11 | ISO 100 | Tripod
This is from our trip to Boston. Lisa and I rented a car for the day to drive down to Cape Cod and it was quite a day trip. The sky was murky and didn't make for a great color photo, but after converting to sepia tones, boosting the contrast, and adding a vignette it turned out to be a nice image. I submitted this one also in this month's camera club competition and took first place in the open advanced division. Post processing done in Adobe Lightroom.

Restrained|| Canon40D/EF28-135@90 | 1/250s | f11 | ISO400 | Handheld
First place! I'm a member of the Wasatch Camera Club and we meet in downtown Salt Lake City once or twice a month.  We also have competitions every couple of months and this past Thursday was one. I submitted this picture and took first place in the advanced open division. I'll upload the other pictures I submitted also over the next few days (even though they didn't place). This image was taken in the San Francisco Maritime National Historical Park at Fisherman's Wharf. They had some very neat old ships that were mostly closed by the time we got there so we didn't pay the fare to get on (the one remaining open ship). I found this chain very interesting. Particularly I liked the lighting, the texture, and how the webs are intermingled with these strong chains. Post processing done in lightroom (black and white/vignetting) and photoshop to remove a disctracting string and light spot. Original here, scroll down to Advanced category, and you can also see some of the other winners of the night.

Salt Lake Temple - Antiqued
Some people feel that altering images in Adobe Photoshop is against the rules.  I'm not one of those people :). This photo was taken in February 2007 while shooting my brother-in-law David's (insert plug for Forever Strong opens this weekend, and he's in it!) wedding.  I revisited this photograph earlier this year (while trying to come up with a gift for Lisa) and after a few filters and color tweaks, here is the finished result. Lisa posted about it on her blog and there were a few who asked if/where they could get this print, and now I have an answer.
Prints are available with a lustre finish as an 8x10 or 16x20, perfect for framing.  Additional sizes, as well as canvases are also available, contact me for pricing and more information.
