Radiating Light

Another Spring flower from my neighborhood.

Fading but Still Beautiful

Spring flowers from my garden. Experimenting with my new iPhone 14 Pro Max’s Portrait mode. It’s really great except in this mode it does now shoot in raw.

This image was taken at the Taiwan’s Cheng long Elementary School pond in 2013. I’ve recently taken an online course from Piet Van den Enyde entitled Ultimate Lightroom Masking. The knowledge from this course has allowed me to use a combination of masks to rework this image.

Rufous Hummingbird

I took this hummingbird picture feeding in my backyard.

I found this little flower growing in some grass in one of my neighborhood parkways. The raindrops seemed to glisten, and the petals are translucent.


Garden Pansy
I photographed this garden pansy with raindrops using my iPhone RX while walking in my neighborhood.

Tulip Beauty

Tulip flower
This flower is about 2″/5cm from the tips of its petals to the base the petals. I took 50 photographs using a focus rail to move a short distance for each image to assure that the entire flower was in focus. I used Photoshop to stack the 50 photos.

Apple Tree Blossoms
