Recent Processing: 2022 Week 15

It has been too long since I’ve been processing images. Life has gotten in the way. Often.

But after many weeks of issues and with my new processing workstation finally in place, I was able to get back into the swing of processing, though granted with learning a few new tricks here and there.

Along with putting images into the portfolio, I will often take images that I really like and transform them in a 16:9 format to use as wallpaper for Windows. A recent trip to New Mexico (which I will blog about later) provided a number of wallpaper-able images. This shot, from inside the hot air balloon that we rode in, caught my eye. I transformed two other inside the balloon shots into wallpaper as well. Shot with my Lumix G85, it was not a shot I like would have been able to pull off with the Canon 7D Mark II.

Also shot on this balloon ride was another balloon from the same hot air balloon outfit following us as we floated through Valencia County, New Mexico. Beautiful skies, a definite idea of where the sun was coming from, and the beautiful mountains in the background. Plus, if you look closely, you will see a long line of box cars from a train racing across the New Mexico landscape. This was also shot with the Lumix G85.

Earlier in my week I also worked some images from last year’s Texas swing. I had processed this image once before, but with a much wider shot. I looked at it again as I was going through the filmstrip and decided to go in a little tighter and make it a portrait. I think it worked out well. I processed two additional Brown Pelicans from that trip.

To finish out my week, I went back into 2015 to work an image of a Woodhouse’s Scrub-Jay. Only I found out after the fact that I had previously processed that image. Stuff happens. At least I didn’t spend very much time on it.

Hopefully more images to share from this week prior to heading back out on the road.
