From the Dock of the Bay (R13)

Taken on June 21, 2013, this is a shot of Aquatic Park Pier with the Marin County highlands across San Francisco Bay in the background. I reprocessed the original image with the relatively new Dehaze feature and tweeked Highlights to bring out the definition and color of the highlands.




The original:



The Casino – Asbury Park NJ

The Casino, at the south end of the Asbury Park Boardwalk, was built in the 1920’s when the city was at the peak of its popularity as a tourist destination. During this era the Convention Center, Paramount Theatre, several Bath Houses and the Heating Plant were also built in the same Beaux Arts style.  The area went through a significant downturn over the years since, but a major redevelopment is underway to rebuild the city and its fabulous beachfront. Here’s a small sample of work in process.




A Walk on the Beach (R12)

Retro #12 was shot on September 18, 2011 in Harvey Cedars on Long Beach Island NJ. I updated processing as usual which made for a more dramatic presentation compared to the original image.

Lantern Festivities

We took a drive down to Philadelphia this weekend to take in the Chinese Lantern Festival at Franklin Square. Despite the heat, humidity and “huge” crowd I managed to collect a few images for this gallery.  Click for a larger view. Enjoy!
