Dawn on the Water

Taken just after dawn, the water was almost as smooth as glass. Post processing was done to give the photo an aged look to warm it up and add a timeless sense to the photo.

The Irving Saint John Refinery

Monday, March 23rd, 2009

This is a panorama of Irving Oil’s Saint John Refinery located in Saint John, New Brunswick.  This is Canada’s largest oil refinery according to Irving.  The refinery is truly massive and took 6 images to capture this image.

The six images were shot hand-held and were stitched together in photoshop using automatic adjustments.  The resulting panorama was converted to grayscale in Lightroom and slight toning adjustments were made for contrast.

The image above is shown using Microsoft’s Seadragon technology. Scroll and pan inside the image to reveal more detail. You can see my images here

The Chrysler Building

Monday, February 16th, 2009

The Chrysler Building in New York City as seen from the observation deck on the Empire State Building (taken back in June 2008).  I was playing around with split toning and thought this gave the image a nice warm and historic tone.

The image is actually a panorama made from three shots of the building and stitched using Photoshop CS4 (which does a lovely job if I might add).  Although this blog won’t do it justice, the level of detail in the image is superb, and I’m definitely going to be shooting more panoramas in the future.

Edit: I’ve embedded Microsoft’s Seadragon viewer so you can click and scroll inside the image to see more detail.

Fenced In

It seems I have run out of new photos to post today, which I’m going to attribute to the fact that it’s winter and I haven’t really been inspired to do any shooting lately (or at least nothing that I’d bother sharing here on RAWpixels).  Not to worry though, as I apparently still have a lot of interesting shots from 2008 that I can share, like this one from New York city.

This is the arch in New York City’s Washington Square park.  When I was there in June, it seemed that every landmark or tourist attraction I went to was under some form of renovation.  I think this image sums up my trip pretty well.
