Bridge in Milton, PE- Two for the Price of One

Here’s the bridge that replaced the bridge from yesterday’s photo.  It was such a beautiful spot, that I spent some time there shooting both digitally on my iPhone and on film with my old Pentax.  These shots were taken with my iPhone.  I love using lines in my photos.  Bridges are interesting to me, if not a bit cliche as a photography subject.

But hey… Things become cliche for a reason.

Sunset Over a Field in Brookfield, Prince Edward Island

20120501-141515.jpg

This is the sun setting over a field near my house in Brookfield, Prince Edward Island, Canada. I took this photo with my iPhone instead of my usual Pentax and 35mm film.

My thought process while taking this photo was primarily the rule of thirds, and how I could bring out the colours in the soil and grass. Notice the three main horizontal lines that loosely follow the rule of thirds, and the setting sun on the top left “thirds” intersection. I used my iPhones “HDR” feature which basically stitches together more than one exposure of the same shot providing a higher dynamic range. This accompanied with a contrast boost and an instagram treatment give this photo it’s final touch.

Enjoy!

Photos- Charlottetown, PE

Here are some interesting photos I took with my Asahi Pentax Spotmatic in the late summer and the fall of 2011.   For some of them I used Fuji Superia 200 film, for others I used a Kodak BW400 film.  They were all taken in the Charlottetown, PE area.
