Cannon Firing-Ft Pulaski, Savannah and a Strange Orb Appearance

 Cannon Firing-Digital Infrared-Sean Duggan Effect-Kim Klassen Textures

View of Tybee Roads from Ft. Pulaski-Sean Duggan Effect-Kim Klassen Textures

A strange orb-like thing appeared on the photo of the cannon firing. Look in between the brackets to see this oddity.I would not have thought it strange, but when photographing the cannon firing, I had my camera set on continuous shooting so I wouldn't miss the fire coming out of the cannon. This strange thing only appeared on one of my photos. Is it a ghost? I have no idea, but it's truly puzzling.

Burnside River Palm

I love photographing palm trees and I'm very fortunate that there are several beautiful palms in my neighborhood that overlook the Burnside River, part of the Intercoastal Waterway (ICW). I used my iPhone and the Pro HDR app which enables one to shoot two photos, one exposing the highlights and one exposing the shadows. It's imperative, however, that you keep the camera still. To achieve this handheld with the iPhone or any smart phone, use two hands to hold the device and bring your arms in as close to your body as possible. After shooting the image, I uploaded it to my computer and in photoshop added three different layers of texture from Kim Klassen's watercolor set with some of the textures brushed away from the grass and palm tree.

Texture Tuesdays-Not Necessarily Textured eDition- Wassaw Island

Nearly every weekend in the summer, we take the boat over to Wassaw Island, a barrier island near Savannah. This unspoiled beach offers many photographic opportunities. This image  was shot with my iPhone and the Pro HDR app which allows one to shoot two photos, one which exposes for the shadows and one for the highlights. The two images combined offer a more complete exposure. After shooting the image, I used a filter inside the app to enhance the scene.

This is my entry in Kim Klassen's Not Necessarily Textured eDition of Texture Tuesday, a sort of anything goes theme.
