Shipwreck of Peter Iredale (more than 100 years old!) on the beach near Fort Stevens State Park near Astoria, OR. This is a single photo RAW image HDR with Photomatix and then enhanced with Color Efex Pro ‘India Summer’ filter to accentuate the rust color.
Famous Bellagio Hotel in Las Vegas. You can see the Ceasar’s Palace in the background. Las Vegas looks best at night (see other photos on this blog) but at times it can look beautiful in day time too. I like this photo for the reflection and the white-grey clouds in the sky. Shot with Nikon D7000 and Nikon 10-24mm lens. January 2011.
I was in Las Vegas for CES 2011. While there I took my new D7000 to shoot some photos of casinos and hotels. D7000 has very good high-ISO performance. At ISO 1100 this photo still shows no noticeable noise. I have tested this camera a fair bit and images with ISO 6400 are quite usable. Shot with Nikon D7000 and Nikon 10-24mm lens.
This monster truck is sitting on the Columbia Icefields. We took a tour of the icefield while visiting Banff and Jasper National Parks in Canada. Shot with Nikon D90 and Nikon 10-24mm lens. Boosted tonal contrast for extra punch to the image.
Iconic Glacier National Park photo. Very popular tourist spot. Sad part for me was that there was absolutely no snow left on the mountain peaks by this time in Summer. Shot with Nikon D90 with Nikon 10-24mm lens. Brilliance/Warmth filter used to enhance warm colors.
Two iconic hotels from Las Vegas in day time. The water body is the man made lake in front of the Hotel Bellagio. Shot with Nikon D90 and Nikon 10-24mm lens. I used a Brilliance/Warmth filter to add warmth and get better color out of the hotel buildings.
