My new gallery, featuring 37 of my recent works,
Hi everyone, as the saying goes, “in for a penny in for a pound!”. 🙂
I decided to enter four additional entries in the Travel competition.
and my original entry
If you like ’em please share.
Thanks and Best wishes,
I entered one of my travel works in this competition.
I have my own philosophy on entering competitions as I never win so much as 50p on a scratch card and that’s enter and forget it. 🙂
I’m not a big fan of converging verticals. One of the first things that I habitually do with my architectural works is correct for these, my favourite tool of choice being DXO Viewpoint. In my opinion, this program is pretty much a must-have for anyone interested in photographing architectural views. I also use their PhotoLab and previously Optics Pro software for some basic corrections but Viewpoint is a great product for more advanced correction and integrates with both Optics Pro and PhotoLab.
A small tip, when framing the scene do not frame the subject too tightly, leave a fair amount of “wiggle” room around edges 🙂 as it’ll be needed when applying correction. Else you will end up with parts of the building cut off. This is the exception to my general habit of composing a scene 100% in the viewfinder and not cropping during processing. As an exception to the above I’ll not be using this process if I ever get to photograph the leaning tower of Pizza. 🙂

As you will have noticed 🙂 I’ve been trying very hard to publicise my artwork this year with my usual lack of much success 🙂
I did two new virtual galleries –
‘Praha – Prague’ – Paintography
‘Paintography’ Impressions 2018
a new book (my third) entitled “2018 Collection” featuring works from my travels –
and I’ve worked hard on my websites and social media pages –
I’ve had my best year on Fickr to date with nine of my works making it into Flickr Explore, see my Flickr Explored Page for these and my previously explored works. My total photo views are approaching two million views since I started the page five years ago.
Some new YouTube videos –
The highlights of my year being my visits to Prague, such a beautiful, fascinating city and the lovely picturesque island of Corfu. The low point being wasting my money joining and then subsequently cancelling my membership of the Royal Photographic Society as my style of work doesn’t fit in there and their attitudes are set in the photographic stone-age. I don’t know what to try in the coming year but you’ll be the first to know. 🙂 .Thanks to everyone that has encouraged and supported my work throughout another year.
