Every Photoshop geek knows this, but for those who don’t–sometimes a tiny bit of tweaking can change the “mood” of an image. This is a late afternoon shot of the old walnut tree in my back yard as the camera captured it:
Here’s the same frame rendered in black and white:
And this one is the B&W version with a warming “film” filter applied:
I like #3 the best, but I’m a sucker for that particular color combination.

Because it’s a day off, sitting around the lazy table drinking a cold beer is de rigueur. Here’s a shot of my fave pint glass on a watery glass surface (“3 in a series” cracks me up!).

Several weeks ago I told Maggie that no matter what I was going to post the 1000th photo taken with the G11. Fortunately, I like it! The shot is of the thermometer on our patio. No crop, a little sharpening–basically straight from the camera.

Since it’s my day off, and a long weekend (no commute–hooray!), I’m weaving in some older photos. Several weeks ago a tiny mushroom sprouted in one of the potted plants we have in our house. I figured I’d see how macro the macro function of the G11 with a fixed lens could go.
Here’s the mushroom:
And here’s the perspective shot:
Canon G11 in the microcosmos.
Today’s commute sucked. Friday. End of summer for schoolers. Everyone trying to get out of Dodge for their last hoorah. All I wanted to do was get home. No stops, just on a mission. But, there’s always the patio, a cold beer, and the garden!
The G11 is a point and shoot camera with really good depth of field (and excellent macro). Unfortunately, it doesn’t do good bokeh. This first shot is straight out of camera background blur (ISO 100, f/2.8):
For this next sunflower shot I used Photoshop to separate the flower into its own layer and then added Gaussian blur to the background.
Canon G11 headed towards the weekend.
