Middle of the month and it’s time to share desktops for Clare’s challenge.

On the Photo pc I have a black and white view of cows and crows – a reminder that Summer was still here until a few weeks ago…

Cows and Crows

…The clouds and the crows speak of autumn just around the corner though.

On the Games pc we have a shot of Miss Lola heading towards Bakersfield along US-58 with an articulated dumper truck…

…The sun is going down and we’re going to need to stop for a break soon. We’ve just passed a Motel, visible between the power poles, but I don’t want to stop there – anyone recognise it?

An experimental processing of a shot taken with the Moto g50. I thought it would be interesting to create a set of exposures from the original and then combine them to make a pseudo HDR shot. Here’s what I got: –

Colour…

Dusk on Long Lane_HDR

Black & White…

Dusk on Long Lane_HDR_B&W

and Sepia…

Dusk on Long Lane_HDR_Sepia

I used a 5-stop spread of post-processing exposures to get this effect. The grain is quite intrusive compared with what I’d expect from a similar piece of processing using a shot from one of my cameras. However, I think the Sepia view is nicely atmospheric 😎
