October 2016 Wallpaper

Happy Autumn.   For this month’s image I stuck my hand into the October archives and by chance this decade-old image popped out.   I don’t know if we’ll have good color this year with the drought and all.  We may need to travel to locations like this (Addison, Vermont) to get our color fix for the year…  I hope you have a great autumn season!

Technical: Canon 1D Mk2, 70-200mm f/2.8L at 73mm; 1/250 @ f/8, ISO 200.  Processed with Lightroom CC.  Started with some small overall exposure tweaks: -0.3EV and brought down the highlights and black clipping -15 which created a solid tonal base. Added a general strong contrast curve.  The foreground grass was reflecting pretty strongly, so I pulled the greens down -11 and then added a GND filter which further pulled the foreground down (-0.4EV, h-10) into a comfortable range.

Here comes autumn…   This photograph was taken a few years ago during a photowalk at Danforth Brook in Hudson (a tributary of the Assabet River).

November 2014 Wallpaper

November 2014 Wallpaper

The last burst of autumn color in our yard comes from our Japanese Maple located by the waterfall.  Today (November 1st) signaled the coming winter with a slow, cold rain but I could not let the day go by without trying to capture the saturated color of this tree against the muted hues that surround it.

Technical: Fuji X-T1, 55-200mm f/4.8 R OIS on a tripod, 1/125 at f/5.6, ISO 320.   Processed in Lightroom 5 (minor exposure tweaks overall, right-hand leaf was masked and given a +0.2 exposure boost plus some clarity — mostly to provide a darker background for the calendar).

October 2012 Wallpaper

Maybe its the rain, but I thought I’d go a little on the dark side for October’s image.   Without darkness there can be no light.   An image from the not-so-deep archives, taken in October 2011.

If you like the above image you can download it to your computer and use it as your desktop or tablet wallpaper. A few of the common screen sizes are available:

Technical drivel: Canon 7D, 70-200mm f/2.8 macro, 1/320 at f/3.5, ISO 640.  Tonal tweaks, vibrance +39, clarity and+24 and moderate sharpening in Lightroom 4.   Used the “Camera Faithful” profile (one of those not often used tabs in Lightroom, but one I find very important for autumn images.)
