Tonight I thought I would try something completely different… I wanted to push the limits and process a photo in a totally different style to what I normally do. The first objective was to find a photo to use … and I chose the above photograph which was taken back in September 2014 at Joss…
Tip Toe Through The Tulips
The above photograph was taken at Merriment Gardens in East Sussex.. earlier this month… as you can see there are a couple of trunks that distracted your eye away from the tulips… so my first job in Lightroom was to clone those out using ‘Spot Removal Tool’. After that I then cropped the image to…
Beautiful in White – Flower
Last year we visited Quex Gardens near Birchington in Kent… and I took this picture of a white flower that was planted within the walled gardens. The exposure was all wrong and it was far too bright and I didn’t like the green leaves in the right-hand corner. So today I wondered if I could…
Hever Castle in Kent
The above image is the final image which was mainly processed in Lightroom… however I did go to Photoshop to remove some elements of the photograph which I found distracting. The picture on the right is the one straight out of camera… I started off by adding a Preset by Serge Ramelli called ‘B&W: Complexed…

Lightroom Edits I thought I would create this tutorial, simply because a friend of mine had asked for advice on how to watermark and export their photographs in Lightroom and what I do when I export my photographs. First of all I start in the Lightroom Library panel and the first thing I look at…
Weekly Photo Challenge – Half-Light
This is my entry for the WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge – Half-Light. The photograph was taken of a walkway bridge at Maidstone in Kent.
Country Roads… take me home
This photograph was taken by St Margaret’s Church in High Halstow, near Rochester, Kent and composed of 6 photos at different exposures. I then merged them in Photomatix and added an autumn tone to the picture, by using a preset in Photomatix and once the photograph was re-imported back to Lightroom I then adjusted the…
One Photo Focus – April
For the last couple of months, real life has been hectic and I haven’t had time to process many photos or take part in Stacy Fisher’s monthly photo challenges. This month I was determined to submit an entry for One Photo Focus – April. The photograph was submitted by Cee Neuner of Cee’s Photography. Just…
Bridge at the Venetian
The above was taken during our stay in Las Vegas in May last year. I can’t believe a year has now gone by .. The Venetian Hotel is spectacular… especially inside with its replica of St Mark’s Square. Even though you are inside a hotel… with the blue clouded ceiling that has slight movement to…
On the trail
One of my favourite photographers has to be Serge Ramelli and just recently he has been doing tutorials of photographs he has taken at Yosemite National Park and has called them, his “On the trail of Ansel Adams” series. I can’t believe it was nearly a year ago that we were at Yosemite and after…
As we ventured around Ightham Mote the other weekend… my usual lens (which I love) was making my camera feel so heavy that it was playing havoc with my arthritis so the only thing to do was to change to a much lighter lens.. so I opted for my nifty fifty lens.. and one of…
