Panoramic of Manarola in the Cinque Terre at sunset

The last couple of years while teaching the locations workshops I have been looking for images whose compositions would make a nice panoramic over a couch or a queen size bed. This image from the Manarola in the Cinque Terre was captured last October and will be on display for the 1st time this Labor Day weekend at Arts Beats & Eats in Royal Oak as a 24″x60″. If you are at the show this weekend stop by my booth #130 to check out some of the new panoramas that I will be displaying.

To bring out the colors that were in the water and sky in the Cinque Terre at sunset in late October I processes this image using Lightroom and Topaz Clarity.

Barns of Michigan

During the Lighthouse working along the West Coast of Michigan we spent some time photographing some of Michigan’s wonderful barns.

Barns are normally red and to have a white barn in perfect condition was fun to capture. This barn in the northern Lower Peninsula is one of the best I have ever seen and I will be visiting it with clients for every workshop I give in Northern Michigan.

Sunset on the South Haven Lighthouse

The Lake Michigan Lighthouse workshop was fun and everyone went home with great images. I arrived home yesterday afternoon and started the wind down process from teaching and capturing images. After spending a week on location capturing images it is always difficult trying to select which images to start processing.

The South Haven lighthouse was scheduled for our last evening shoot and ended up being my favorite image. After a stormy day the clouds and light created the amazing conditions for me to capture this sunset image.

The unprocessed image of sunset at the South Haven Lighthouse is stunning but with a few adjustments in Lightroom and Topaz Clarity the image turns into a fine art image.
