Break of Dawn (vintage)


This is an image that dates back a few years.  I was searching for it on this website and was surprised that I had never posted here.  It’s a digitally enhanced version of one of my most popular images – Break of Dawn.  (See the original HERE)  The original is a wonderful color image.  It would be my favorite of the two, but I also like the aged look this one receives from the monochrome and textured effects.

Floral Prose

Red, Flowers, Texture, Pops Digital, Bill Pevlor

Every now and then I try something different. These flowers brightened up one of the flowerbeds in our yard last summer.  I took the photo and added a texture for a different effect.

I think I need to work more on textures.  Stay tuned.

Enigma on Wings

I spent some time the other day taking my first hummingbird photos of the season. This is a female, ruby-throated hummingbird looking straight at the camera.  The wings are just a blur.

To get this unique look, I took all the color out of the original image, added a bit of sepia tone and then a texture effect.

This is one of the first poppies to bloom and fade in our spring garden.  I applied a texture to the image.  To me, it didn’t seem right to gaze upon its unfiltered demise.

Spring’s Serenade (textured effect)

 kg leaf photography red leaf photography karen leaf photography turning leaf photography almond leaf photography new leaf photography velvet leaf photography blog 4 leaf photography kris green messy textures textured vintage old

I’ve been fiddling with my images lately.  (You might have noticed yesterday’s post – Morning Friends)

This image was originally posted last April (see Spring’s Serenade).  When I first posted it I shared it with some friends and mentioned I thought it would be a perfect image for a textured effect.  Well, I finally got around to trying one on.

It changes the feel of the bright, vivid original image.  You should look at both and see which you prefer.

Kewaunee Night-House


I’ve been itching to take some photos but have been frustrated by the lack of opportunity.  It’s dark when I leave for work and dark by the time I return.  Tonight I decided to snap something.

I had to run an errand to the nearest town, Kewaunee, WI – on the shore of Lake Michigan.  I kept an eye open for something to photograph.  Not much caught my eye so I stopped by the beach and experimented with some night photography, trying a variety of camera settings.

This is a view of the Kewaunee lighthouse.  The lighthouse light overpowers the image, not leaving much else.  Still, something about the image appeals to me.  I really like the red of the navigational light on the north pier, across the harbor from the lighthouse.  I added a slight texture to give it character.

So, what do you think?  Worthwhile image, or no.  Leave a comment with your thoughts.

Image details:  280mm, F8, 20-sec., ISO 800
