Siding &Tritone

I've found my favorite B&W tritone is one through an action called "Burgundy Gold" by The Light's Right Studio. Head on over for a whole bunch of great free actions. I add an inner glow (black, 150px, 3%noise, color burn) for a simple edged effect.

Coulee, Southern Alberta

Chief Mountain Panorama, Southern Alberta

5 RAW images shot on tripod, then stitched together with Photoshop's "Photomerge" feature. Works very well - on the (huge) full-size image i can't tell where the seams are.

Vintage Toy Duck (2 versions)

This one is with my own action - a quad tone sepia action with edge effects (inner glow, black, 100 pixels, color burn).

This one is with a "vintage" action i found on Adobe's Photoshop Exchange.

Personally, i think mr. duck is a little creepy.

Chief Mountain, from Southern Alberta

Looks cold & lonely, doesn't it?

Some Roses... and Cheese!

Think I like the long, tall crop better...

Again, the narrow crop seems nicer. And what could be cheesier than a picture of a rose on a piano? Methinks nothing... nothing at all. In fact I think I can smell the cheese through my monitor.

Graphic/Colour Mums

Using the "cutout" filter in Photoshop. I kinda likes.

Spider Mum II

Similar but different. Kinda. I like the background interest in this one.

Early Winter, Southern Alberta

Shot in the Pincher Creek area. My brother and I were dumb enough to be fishing in a canoe that day. Never caught anything (i never do). This shot is my only consolation.

Calla Lilies & Spider Mum

Cool name. Cool flower. If you're into that sort of thing.

My Shorties... the latest.

Sonya was trying to give me a "mean" pirate look. i think she nailed the "short bus" pirate look instead. This shot will definitely come up at her wedding.

Ok just one more

I promise.


Folland-Khatri shots are done. Off to the printer!
