      Great timing capturing the action and excitement with the outriders running to jump on their horses.

    Summer Skirmish at the Military Museums. Just for fun to show the woman’s outfit and the horse’s tack in colour. Or is it a unicorn! Lucky shot thanks to the fighter jet you can see when you’re driving by on Crowchild.

    this picture has two parts the first is the raw image as I took it from the truck of Yosemite Valley from tunnel view. It was very busy and icy. so I just took it as I cruised by. Th e second is after editing cropped in tighter and with ai took out the people and it replaced with the forest floor as if I was standing at the railing. Pushed to black and white played with colour sliders and blue filter to achieve this.

  9. Dwight says:

    The second

  10. Dwight says:

    this is a photo I took back in 2012 with the d7000 just a sheet on the ground pushed to black and white added some vibrancy and diffused it a touch.

    I took this photo of a Gray Angelfish in 2014 with an Olympus Stylus Tough 8000 while scuba diving in Mexico near Playa Del Carmen. I was shooting without external lights so the background colour was very blue. The fish is not very colourful so I converted the photo to black and white.
    ISO 64, f/4.1, 1/160 sec, 36 mm.

    I had fun at the Pride Parade because everyone was so joyous and colourful. I must have taken 50 shots of dogs with rainbow accessories, as well as two bearded dragons and a mermaid. I went directly to the end point at Fort Calgary where the backdrop was the train tankers. Someone said the parade was 2-1/2 hours long this year, compared to one hour last year. Thousands lined the route in support (I could not find crowd estimates online). This diverse group of men had finished the route and were walking in the opposite direction, back towards downtown.
