Sally D’s Mobile Photography Challenge: Post Processing Challenge – Panoramas

Rainbow-

Good evening from a cool Hastings day.

I must apologise for being really late with my post today.  Tuesdays are my days for my painting class.  So, I managed to wake up at a decent hour but when I went onto my computer the Internet was down yet again.  Sooooo, it was a matter of eating breakfast at a leisurely pace before heading out.  Hopefully I won’t have too many interruptions.

This week, being the 5th Monday/Tuesday in June it is time to show our post processing for Sally’s challenge at Lens and Pens by Sally.  My image is actually 2 images merged using the panorama feature in Lightroom.  I tried to do a panorama shot with the camera but managed to cut off the rainbow above the tree.  It should be with apps but I never quite got there.

I think it is a good image for this week, after hearing what has been happening in the US.  So this post is for you Horty at It Is What It Is.

And here is another of my paintings.

Monarch Butterfly-8796

Not the best, but I am getting there.  Very slowly.

Cee’s Oddball Challenge: Odd One Out.

A Red Poppy Among the Orange Poppies-594

Good morning from a cool but sunny Hastings day.

So it is now the last Monday in June.  Where has the time gone?  The year is nearly half over.

So, even though it is Sunday for Cee at Cee’s Photography , it is time for her wonderful challenge. This is where we get to showcase those great photos that don’t seem to fit any category but are still good to work on.

For a change I am showing this photo taken last Friday.  Among the sea of orange poppies there was this pink poppy.  So the odd one out.

Travel Theme: Miniature Roses

Minature Roses-376

Good afternoon from a warm and sunny Hastings day.

Please excuse my tardiness.  I have just changed Internet Providers and they spent the morning tweaking our internet.  I suppose they thought that no-one would be awake before midday in this household, and therefore are not online.  Well they got that wrong.  So I have just done some editing and then sat in the sun to paint.  Now it is a case of watching paint dry.  But the internet is now back on and a tad faster – methinks.  My son is just over the interruption and now couldn’t care less about the speeds – which he normally does.

Anyway onto Ailsa’s challenge over at Where’s my backpack?, which this week is tiny things.

So here are some miniature roses taken on Friday at the Frimley Rose Gardens.

Minature Rose-388

These are not true macros.  But the roses were about the size of an old New Zealand 50 cent piece – about 3 cm or just over an inch and a bit in diameter.

Minature Rose-386

I just used the macro setting on my camera, just to enable me to focus right up close and then braved the thorns to get right up close to them.

Poppy-630

But for this bee, I stood well back and zoomed on it.  The bees were just a little too active for my liking last Friday.
