A typical sunset in Ormond Beach! I made the colors bolder and added contrast.

New edit of Cotton Clouds with less color and more contrast. There is just a hint of blue there. The sky is so interesting.

Photo: Sunshine 7: Through the Leaves

Sunshine through the evergreen leaves of a loquat tree. I increased the contrast and used a layer to make the sunlight more glowing on the computer. This is another photo from January 2006.

Photo: Sunshine 6: Decay

Photo of an autumn leaf with the sun as a light source. The coloring on this decaying leaf was unique. I guess it was being eaten by bacteria or something?

Photo: Bits of Glass

Broken bits of glass on a sidewalk in Dec. 2005. Unlike computer chips, glass hasn’t changed much. This is a newly edited version converted to black and white with extra contrast.

Happy Black Friday 2010 everyone! I bought a new 23″ LED monitor but that’s it. Don’t spend too much.

Small white flowers in our yard, with the sun behind them. These are considered weeds, but they look nice.

Photo: At the Beach

Photo: At the Beach

One of my early photos from Dec. 2004. In the beginning, I made the mistake of setting my 2MP Fujifilm FinePix 2650 to 1 megapixel resolution, which was 1280×960 instead of 1600×1200. At the time, I had a computer with a 4GB HDD and monitor with a resolution of 1024×768, so I saw no reason to take higher quality photos. I couldn’t have been more wrong.

This is newly edited with Photoshop CS5. I added a lot of contrast and made the white balance warmer. Every version of Photoshop gets easier to use, at least in my opinion. The auto contrast and auto tone functions work better now, and I find myself using them rather than curves more often than ever. However, the auto color feature still sucks.

I will only be posting photos from 2005 for the rest of November 2010 and some of December. I will also get into the 2006 photos next month. For a preview of what’s coming, look at the photos I posted on deviantART in late 2005 and early 2006. I will be reposting them here, but with different descriptions, titles, and much better editing.

The same tree from Autumn Leaves, three weeks later in November of 2005. The leaves have gotten more orange and deader!

Not to be confused with Autumnal Leaves from September of 2007.
