Red door on an old Quebec church

20121014 Rural Quebec-103

 

From a recent road trip in Quebec’s Eastern Township’s.  On a very dull overcast day, I was having little luck spotting a great landscape shot but stumbled upon this all to common church.  Every town in this area has at least one and often several interesting old churches.  Shot again at 24mm using the Tilt/Shift for perspective correction.  Yes it can be done in photoshop but doing it in camera allows me to maintain full resolution and less time in front of the computer.

Fall colors of Winnipeg

Trembling Aspen trees, using a manual shift. This image is not Photoshopped, it is done in camera using a tilt/shift lens and nature’s own colour palette on a perfect fall day. It is white balanced, with adjustments to contrast, and levels.

Lake Winnipeg waves in motion, Loni Beach, Gimli, Manitoba

Three different shots of Lake Winnipeg’s wave action, shot near Loni Beach and Gimli Beach.  These were all done using a panning technique, although this can be somewhat replicated in photoshop, anything I can do in camera and not behind the computer is always preferable.  I spend too much time sitting at the computer as it is.   Besides I think the results are better and more natural when captured on location.  Numbers 1 and 3 are horizontal pans.  Number 2 more of an experimental wobbling of the tripod, but the clouds and water turned out interesting.
