    Henri, a Happy Canada Day weekend to you and all of our Boomer Photo Members.
    Diana and I were out at 11pm to photography the fireworks. Always interesting to see what one captures on a long shutter.

      Thanks Joe. Good example of long shutter exposure. I like the background smoke drifting and the blotchy ball of floating debris on the left side. As well as the skyline shadows silhouetted against the lower fireworks. Makes for a different type of fireworks photo.

      Wow! Pretty soon we’ll only have drone displays. They’re cool, but not the same!

    Leaves of grass taken at Griffith Woods. This is probably one of my favourite walks for photographing individually lit flowers and leaves. The forest throws a lot of shadow while the gaps in the foliage throws strong lighting on interesting detail. By exposing for the lit parts the background foliage comes out dark with subtle muted variations of green. This is a focus stacked composition of 7 images. f/10, 1/400 sec, ISO 1000.

    This osprey got so excited about its fish dinner that it almost lost its balance on the branch. Meanwhile a raven looks on enviously. A photo that tells a story. I cheated a bit in that in the original photo the raven was not facing towards the osprey, so I layered in this raven from another photo using GIMP. ISO 1600, f/14, 1/500.

      Terrific nature action shot! Your confession of “cheating” is hilarious!

    • Henri says:

      I agree with Frankie. I like the almost white background, the dark almost silhouette tree branches and the properly exposed osprey. I also like the juxtaposition of the two birds at opposite ends. Nothing wrong with the cheat. To me that stands for the E(xperiment) in WAKE. Great shot Ron!

    Colourful canoes on Moraine Lake a few days ago. iPhone 14 Pro, 30mm, f 1.8, 1/785 sec ISO 80. Dehazed in Affinity Photo.

  11. Frankie says:

    Blue jay at Mallard Point. Deep in a bush so I had to switch to manual focus because spot focus wasn’t cutting it. Not quite fully zoomed (my lens is 18-400 mm), enlarged twice the original size.
    ISO 400, 300 mm, f/6.3, 1/1600

  12. Frankie says:

    This is a magical photo to me, somehow the elephant looks really small. Can’t really figure it out. Tanzania six years ago. It’s on my mind because I’m in the midst of booking a trip to South Africa this fall.
    ISO 1600, 50 mm, f/11, 1/400 sec

    Something old. A old gas pump at a deserted service station. Taken with 18-55 mm lens at f/3.6, 1/1600 sec, ISO 250

  14. Beth says:

    Something new. Can you guess what this is? Taken with my 18-55 mm lens at f/22, 1/40 sec, ISO 250

    The soul of my work.
