Statues and Pipes

So, I’m waiting for a flight and thought I’d play with some photos.

I’ll show the before and after. You should be able to click on them for a larger version of each but since I’m composing this on the phone, I don’t know what I’ll end up with.

Here are the dancers (landscape version) . . .

That’s not too bad. Dawn was just breaking and the light was poor.

Here’s the processed version (edited with Snapseed and resized with Pixlr) . . .

Personal preference dictates what people like.

Here’s another version . . .

That’s the original. Here’s the processed version.

When I’m not sure about the framing I typically take multiple shots switching from landscape to portrait orientation.

Here’s the portrait original . . .

And here’s the processed version:

Notice I cropped the photo. Again, a matter of preference. Others might have chosen different crop dimensions.

Next up, the pipes . . .

They stuck me as interesting . . . Here’s my first attempt . . .

I thought the photo lent itself to a gritty treatment.

This next one version, a little less.

. . . and this is somewhere in between (maybe . . . The terminal is pretty bright and I’m keeping the screen brightness on low to conserve the battery’s charge).

Anyway, that’s it. Here’s a random bonus photo or whatever it is.

That’s it; imagine the usual disclaimer here.

  1. Flight?! Is the Mother-Ship coming to pick you up?! ;-) HA!
    Am I weird that I like the pipes more than the dancers?!
    Am I beyond-weird that I like “Watts Max” more than the pipes?!
    Great photos, Emilio!
    OH! and have a fun fun FUN trip!
    HUGS!!! :-)

      I wish! At this point, I’d take the Father-ship, Uncle-ship, or even “Weird-cousin-Jerome” ship.

      As for likes and preferences, that can vary. It doesn’t sound like you hate anything, so that’s good and not at all weird.

      And, yes, Watts Max has a certain appeal to it. I think It’s Mad Max’s pet gecko.

      The trip was quick and not particularly fun, but neither was it bad. Thanks, Carolyn.

  2. I prefer the pipes over the dancers!

    Your second photo (processed) of the dancers has got my vote. Neat colors and textures.

      Thanks, Ann.

      Of the dancer photos, I like the portrait one the best, but all are decent.

      Of the pipes, my vote is split between the second and third processing.

      Those look different on the PC than on the phone (not bad, just different) and that stands to reason because of the screen size. Still, I thought the processing came out pretty close to what I wanted. Bright daylight is not ideal for editing and processing photos.

    Sometimes things just need gritty treatment…nicely done….


  5. Well the little creature in the last pic will do me.Some sort of lizard I assume. although I was once taught never to assume!
