Sunset Footpath

Sunset Footpath

Is it Tuesday already, it’l be Friday before we know it…

pleased to say my car repairs are taking shape, it also now needs a new tow bar as well….this being the only thing that saved my life and that’s no joke. If you don’t need one I would still recommend having one fitted, you never know!


Just ordered my Tilt Shift lens, I couldn’t justify hiring one at £95 a time and I have several jobs coming up that will in some way pay towards it…hope Jo doesn’t find out, at least not until she has bought several pairs of shoes and kitchen bits…she’s usually ok with it as she knows I make it good but they are darned expensive.

Must still have 30-50 shots to process from Wales, it really was that good a week this last time, I’ll do more as and when but I have a few biggish jobs on now so need to complete these to keep me in the style I have come accustomed, may sound stupid but I would rather have a new lens than eat, well skip a few meals anyway..and looking at me I could stand to lose a few pounds or stones…before anyone says different like Glyn in Germany.


The shot

Canon 1ds MK II

EF16-35mm f/2.8L II USM

f/20, 27mm, ISO 100, 1.6s, 21.56 pm

Lee Filters, ND .6, ND Grad .9 and .6, hand held sunset filter


often asked about Photoshop and the processes I use, I only ever adjust I never add anything. The colours etc must all be there to start with

Correct horizon level

remove dust spots

adjust levels using curves to balance the light

adjust saturation but believe me this is minor maybe 10% extra only as the filters do the most of this, quite often I have to tone this down or just use auto settings in

the rest is dodge and burn, a little contrast to suit my taste and hopefully my customers.

Overall very little work, I would say 90% is done at sea as it were, I do enjoy the processing side but God I love the “being there”

    lol, love the comment bud..
    Well if you did skip a meal, then parcel it up for somalia, then you could feed an entire family for a year !!! lol
    Like the sun rays in this one bud and the reflection the sun is casting. Enjoy your day bud, and hope your healing ok.

    Get the bite-size weetabix, that way you can have a least 50, and not feel guilty…Up there for thinking….you know what i mean…
