The following images are some of my favorites from 2010.  This year I ventured deep into HDR (High Dynamic Range) photography as well as photographing classic automobiles and local events in my home community in Rockdale County.

“Cornonet 440″ – Taken during the Conyers Car Show in the spring.  This image was featured in the Rockdale News.

“Red Carpet on Granite” – This photo was taken in the spring of 2010 at Arabia Mountain in Lithonia, GA.  These small red flowers grew across a solid surface of granite.

“Slow” – Taken at Wildcat Creek campground in northern Georgia during a ‘Mancation’ camping trip with my son and a friend.

“After the Fire and Rain” – Upon arrival at Wildcat Creek campground we learned there was a controlled burn recently which had scorched most of the undergrowth around the campground.  I took this image with a wide angle setting (12mm) facing into the sun.  I didn’t care much for the original color version, but fell in love with the b&w version.

“Rigging” – My first attempt at Depth of Field manipulation.  This ship was docked in Savannah, GA and I took the photo during a family day-trip.

“Hotel Lobby” – Taken at the Westin in Phoenix, AZ during a business trip.  The image is processed HDR.  This particular image has the most ‘favorites’ on Flickr.

“Dart Engine” – Taken during the 2010 Conyers Car Show, this Dodge Dart was hyped up to burn on natural fuels instead of gasoline.  Processed HDR.

“PNC Park” – Home of the Pittsburgh Pirates, I took this shot while on the roof of an adjacent parking structure.  HDR Processed.

“Spring Tulips” – Taken at the Westin in Itasca, IL – This was a cold, raw and very unimpressive day with regards to clouds and light.  The image shows the ‘cool’ feeling of the day.  HDR processed.

“Corporate Fountains” – Taken the same day as “Spring Tulips”, the weather was uncooperative and I was dealing with spray from the fountain as well as the near frozen temps.  This image was taken with seven image autobracketed @ 1 step each.  HDR processed.

“Bell’s Puppy”

“She Thinks My Tractor’s Sexy” – Rockdale County Open House

“Birch at Muskoka Lakes”

“Impala Rim”
