The start of a new month and time to display my Last on Card photos for Brian’s challenge.

Let’s start with the Moto g50. This shot was taken for one of my Nuts & Bolts posts to illustrate my method of recording which parts on an engine need replacing with new…

Last on Card JUL22_g50

…Apart from a change of name for this post, you can’t tell the difference as all I did for the original post was resize for web!

Now the Canon EOS5d mkIII…

Last on Card JUL22_EOS5D

…Taken at our pre-season friendly against Coggeshall Town on 16th July – the game ended in a 1-1 draw. It was my last match for a while. On the 19th I deemed it too hot to attend – the temperature reached 40.3C that afternoon, which is outside the camera’s official operating window (as well as mine)! Then on Thursday 21st I went down with what turned out to be covid. Now I’m hoping to be fit to do the Team Photos on August 11th🤞🏻

To finish, here’s a shot taken with the Fuji X-Pro2…

…The Pigeons living it large in our bird bath!

As usual just a resize for the web and no other changes.

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 😎

Here we are at the start of June – that means it’s time to share our last photo on the card for Brian’s challenge😎

May is a quiet month for me as the Isthmian League Football Season has ended and that means there are no last on cards for my Canon cameras. That leaves the Fujifilm X-Pro2 and the Moto g50.

On the X-Pro, I have a shot of Squires Lane in some moody weather…

…This shot appeared in my ‘May Storms‘ post where it had been straightened and cropped. I had hoped to go out again on the 31st but a Steam Train I was intending to photo was cancelled and the weather wasn’t very good, so I didn’t, making this my last shot of the month with a camera.

The Moto g50 picked up the task of taking a shot of my new pc to send to my Son as he wanted to know what I had bought…

…Early morning and my usual strong cuppa in the foreground😉 Look at the state of the office wall – redecoration needed sometime🙄

As required for Brian’s challenge, no changes made to the photos other than resizing for the web 👍
