“Kim’s Rose”

Kims Rose

I shot a headshot for a friend yesterday and she had a rose bush in bloom. I could not resist a little flower work after I was done. The roses were covered with a heavy coat of dew and made for some beautiful images. The above is one of the best I got.

Raw file processed in Lightroom 5 and then into Nik Silver Efex Pro 2 for the black and white conversion.

“Fungus”

Fungus

One more from the Paulding Forest trip last week. This big fungus comes up every fall by this old oak tree. I have photographed it for a couple of years now. It was not quite as large this year due to the dry weather this fall. I am not sure what it is exactly but it is really cool looking. The light on it this morning was pretty amazing. This is a 5 shot HDR converted to B&W in Silver Efex Pro 2.
