Is it real, or is it memorex? Remember those old commercials? In this case, this is a real shot of the Pantheon in Rome, but it was taken on a nice sunny day with a completely boring sky. On another trip though (to Moab), there was a really cool sky, but a meh landscape. So put the two together, and what you get is my first try at a photo-composite using Luminar. I rather like how it turned out. So is this a photograph or a photo composite? Probably both, but it looks cool, and that’s good enough for this weeks post.
Next up in my weekly zoom-background revisits is this sunset scene from Moab. It’s not very far out of town, but pretty much everything in the area is scenic. This is an HDR to capture the wide range and mood of the moment.
At times where we’re all feeling a bit trapped, remembering that the wide world is still out there waiting gives us something to look forward to!
We’ve been to Australia three times now, twice to Melbourne, and once to Sydney and Tasmania. It’s been an exotic place ever since Bugs Bunny first introduced me to it, and when the chance came, we decided to spend some time driving around the island. On one overcast and rainy day, we drove down to Cape Tourville to see the bay – what you can’t tell is that I’m underneath an umbrella, desperately trying to get the pano shot before more raindrops fall on the lens. And what you really can’t tell is my wife in the car, laughing at me, because she’s dry and warm!
