View Across The Seine

Paris 47b

Click on the picture for a bigger view!

Hello – I’m back! I’ve had a rest from blogging, mainly because I got fed up with the problem with my blog posts transferring to Facebook if I’m honest. But I thought it was about time for a return so as I have some fantastic pictures to share – here I am 🙂

I’n sure I don’t have to tell you where this picture was taken but just in case you don’t know it’s in Paris from last year’s holiday. It’s one of several pictures of a similar view but this is the one I chose to keep as everything is right – from the boat going under the bridge to the skyline and also the lack of lorries in view!

As you can see it is presented in HDR format which I feel enhances it and makes it a far more dramatic picture.

I am currently updating my website with some new work but if you want to take a look the address is http://www.imjphotoart.co.uk

Until next time – stay focussed!

Barcelona Harbour

Barc 20c w

 

Well, it seems like ages since my last blog post – and in fact it is!

But here I am back with a burst of colour and a picture taken on my recent holiday to Barcelona. I actually visited both Barcelona and Paris so there will be plenty of pictures coming up!

I’m not sure if this should be called harbour or marina as it is the lead up to the marina – if anyone wants to correct me then please go ahead.

As those of you who follow my blog will know I am a fan of HDR so when I had the chance to get back to Barcelona I thought I would do it properly. Properly you may ask?? Well yes, those of you in the know will already know that there is a one click cheats way of doing HDR pictures and also the correct way i.e. 3 pictures that are combined. So my memory cards were full and it took me two days to complete them all.

Don’t worry – I’m not going to put them all on here 🙂

So if you like my post please show your appreciation and let me know.

Look out for more coming soon.

A Summer Day in Covent Garden

A Summer Day in Covent Garden

I thought I’d have a break from the exhibition pics and go for a nice summery scene. OK so it’s not all scenery and flowers but I do think it’s quite a cheery scene!

This is a picture of a crowd watching a street entertainer in Covent Garden that I took the other week.

As you’ve come to expect from me, I thought I would give it a HDR makeover and I really like the outcome. It just seems to give it a feel of summer and enhances the colours as well as giving it an unusual effect.

Exhibition Picture 12 – Sweet Pea

Exhibition Picture 12 - Sweet Pea

After a short break we’re back with picture number 12 from our Peterborough Exhibition.

I’d love to say this is somewhere exotic but in fact it is a picture taken in my garden. Sometimes simple is very effective!

Exhibition Picture 11 – Paris Street View

Exhibition Picture 11 - Paris Street View

We’re back to Paris today for our 11th picture from our exhibition series.

This is a HDR version of a Paris street scene that was taken a couple of years ago.

The effect really accentuates the ‘frenchness’ of the scene, bringing out the architecture in such an interesting way.

We are raising money for Macmillan Cancer Support with each print we sell so with prices starting at just £4.00 please consider purchasing one 🙂

Exhibition Picture 10 – Flooded Path

Exhibition Picture 10 - Flooded Path

I seem to have let my promise of a picture a day from our exhibition lapse a little bit but never fear, before the weekend finishes I thought I’d sneak one in!

So here we are with a HDR picture called Flooded Path. This is Peterborough river embankment when it flooded a few months ago. It was quite by chance that I took a walk down there with my camera but I’m glad I did as I captured some great shots.

Exhibition Picture 9 – A Splash of Oxford Circus

Exhibition Picture 9 - A Splash of Oxford Circus

Today’s post is the ninth picture from our range that is currently on display in Peterborough Museum.

The post today is called A Splash of Oxford Circus – a picture from our splash of colour range.

Although I’ve said it before about some of my pictures I do have to say that this one is again one of my favourite pictures.

However it’s not to everyone’s taste as we found out yesterday at a craft fair we were at! We had a visitor to our stall who was very vocal about how pictures like this ‘made her blood boil’ as it ‘isn’t what you see down the lens.’ She then announced that she was a photographer from National Geographic but personally I think she was just someone who needed to get out more 🙂

Oh well, you can’t please everyone – onwards and upwards!

If you’d like to see more of our work that drives ‘proper photographers’ mad just click on the picture and you’ll be taken to the page on our website where our exhibition pictures are. Grab a drink, take a look and have a seethe – just try to enjoy!
