Report to the Office on Arrival

It’s Saturday and it has been hot and dusty here, well it was at the BMX racing.  It was a relief to come home.  BMX is quite different to other cycling events I have photographed.

Back to school today.  This is the front door and this door leads to the office.  Most students would rarely use this entrance, except when they were late and needed a note, or if they had to leave early, that kind of thing.

To process this, a HDR image was first created with Photomatix Pro, then I did some simple layers. I only added one blur layer, then masked most of it away.  I added some warmth and did some darkening with the gradient tool.  I’m afraid that I really didn’t do as much as I usually do.  I’m a bit worn out, so I hope you don’t mind.

There are quite a few BMX photos to go through yet.  I’m wondering how they’re going to be.  It’s always really hard taking photos when there’s a bright sun.  I might put some up for you tomorrow.

Day 30 – Photo-Vember Ends

It is the last day of the month and I guess the last day of my challenge.  I thought, instead of finding some new photos to post, I was thinking a recap might be nicer.  Actually, I thought I would post some photos again, the ones I loved.  I am going to do five of them.  You can agree or disagree with my choices.  It is all so subjective, and I do love hearing what you all think.

My first favourite:

This was a surprise for me, if you remember, I didn’t know I had this one until I went looking for it.  It was posted on Day 8.

There is that lovely coloured water again.  This morning was so surreal to me.  This is from Day 13.

I quite liked the treatment of this.  I enjoyed playing with one image and changing it several ways.  I should try and do that more.  This was from Day 19.

Photographing the BMX was fantastic and I just love the photos I got from it.  Really want to do more of it.  This was on Day 22.

This one I like, because I finally got around to taking some photos of it after so many years.  It was careful planning, but got there.  This from Day 1.

I have enjoyed doing this challenge, and I would like to thank those that also participated.  I like a challenge, so I might do something similar next month.  I like posting each day, so might see if I can keep that up as well.  Thanks for reading the blog this month.

Day 21 – Just Quickly

I still aren’t home yet, and was planning on putting some BMX photos today, but on the was back to Ballarat yesterday we drove through a town, Costerfield, and went past this.

I have no idea how old it is, or anything, but I had to go back and photograph it.

The BMX racing in Shepparton was great.  I think I’ve got some good photos but haven’t had time to go through the two and half thousand photos I took.  I got some sunburn, even though I put on sunscreen.  Can’t win sometimes.  Came across a women who was an absolute cow, just because someone carries a camera does not mean they are a friend.  Oh well.  If I get a chance I might post more later.
