Here's an image submitted by Paul Itkin processed with my Lightroom toolkit.

 

I don't know what it is about post processing, but I must say that I enjoy it as much (if not more) than the process of taking the photograph. It takes me to that imaginary world where for that split second I can forget that I'm sitting behind a computer screen and live the photo itself. Such a cool feeling that I'd like to share with you

 

Another free photo for you to download and use as you wish.

Had this sudden random mood swing today to give a cityscape photo a futuristic blueish look.

A big thankyou to Mr David Law for sharing this one under the CC-A licence @ www.flickr.com/photos/mrdavidlaw/16668096630/

Changes were made to parts of the warm coloured cast, some part of the buildings were sharpened, saturation adjustments were applied.

I still enjoy the original and recommend that you check it out!

Here's a nice juicy Aurora Borealis picture originally taken by Marcelo Quinan and retouched by me.

The original can be found @ www.flickr.com/photos/marceloquinan/16939908572/ .

 

I ended up changing the foreground snow colouring to remove the greenish cast caused by the lights. I also added some noise removal and selective dodging and burning and sharpening in the snow area just to make it pop from the sky

 

All this was done using Photoshop Elements 14 + my toolkit available from www.lennykphotography.com.

Thanks for checking this one out stay tuned for more!

Here's a slick image from Andrés Nieto Porras under the CC-SA licence where the original can be found @ www.flickr.com/photos/anieto2k/15756294108/

 

I enhanced the sky by adding more colour + created of a dreamy effect by blurring selective areas of the clouds. I also neutralised the strong orange + purple colour cast and selectively dodge and burned areas of the photo to give the mountains that extra pop. This image is now free to download under the CC-SA licence!

 

Originally taken using a Canon EOS Mk2 with the EF24-105mm f/4 lens, this is a stellar example of how you don't need top of the line camera gear to take the most stunning photos.

Here's a night time photo I edited originally donated by Josh Felise. Thankyou my friend!

 

I used my Lightroom Landscape toolkit to change up some of the colours in the shadows and highlights and to edit some local adjustments in this image. We can see that a long exposure was used however the stars appear to be blurred.

I'd recommend the use of either high ISO/large aperture + exposure of about 30 seconds to freeze the stars in place or low ISO/small aperture + a super long exposure to form some cool star trails.

 

This Landscape toolkit for Lightroom will be released soon as freeware to download from my website!

A nifty remix of the original @ www.flickr.com/photos/mtch3l/14342662340/ by mtch31.

 

Changed up the lighting in this photo, added a blue colour cast to the sky / water areas, a slight Orton Effect to the greenery and played around with the depth using some dodge / burn techniques. Also did some white noise removal + targeted sharpening in parts of the photo.

 

Thanks for sharing this one under the CC licence mtch31! Fantastic photo + composition.

I don't know how to describe the mood of this picture other than the word 'noir'.

I processed the original by Chris Combe from www.flickr.com/photos/cosmicherb70/15092861213/ to desaturate some of the blue colours leaving some sort of gunmetal grey/blue feel and that Batman Arkham city look to this picture. I've also played around with the saturation in the bridge added blur to the image and some selective dodging and burning to this photo.

 

Just another retake on an already awesome looking photo!

Originally located @ www.flickr.com/photos/romanboed/21933709055/ shared under the CC-A licence I immediately loved the subtle path and imagery that this picture brought.

 

Cudos to Roman Boed for taking this one, I've enhanced the reds in the leaves, dropped a blue filter to the mist, did some lighting adjustments, clone stamped the sticky tape on the light post and threw a slight vignette into it.

A big thank you to the contribution of Martin de Lusenet for this photo from www.flickr.com/photos/martindelusenet/13507834553/

 

I made some changes enhancing those smooth peachy sunset colours and deepening the blues in the water reflection. The OCD in me told me that the image was not 100% horizontal so after using a grid I decided to rotate it by 0.1 of a degree to make it even and added abit of cloud blur to futher enhance that feeling of serenity and calmness I get from viewing this photo.

A big thankyou to Michael Hiresh who's taken this photo of Yosemite and released it under a free licence. You are a legend!

 

I found a part of the mountains in the original hidden by some haze, I still however wanted to keep this haze to emphasise the distance of the mountains from the viewer's eye. So I've added a slight pop to the image and threw in a blue filter placed onto the mountain area. Really love the reflection of the water in this photo too!

Here's a weathered vintage remake of a photo by Ales Krivec.

 

There's just something super cool about the composition, peacefulness and the simplicity of the original photo. I think its just got something to do with how tranquil the lake looks and its setting in the wilderness. Zoom in and you can see a tiny canoe with some boatmen inside see if you can spot them!

 

Currently been in development mode to produce a toolkit for Lightroom to help us all out and save us that little bit of time. Stay posted!

Here's my remixed version of the original which I found @ www.flickr.com/photos/mstable/16902117573/

Was pretty difficult task fixing up some of the shadow areas and the heavy purple coloured cast. What drew me to this photo was the nice composition and the wheel! It just seems like there's a wheel or some rendition of a wheel in every city!

Here's a remixed version of Jack Pease's sunset photo kindly shared under the CC-Attribution licence (www.flickr.com/photos/cathedraljack/17176531265/in/album-...) I changed some of the colors in the sky, removed the sun and used some dodging and burning for the grass and path area and clone stamped some of the artifacts out.

 

I really love the composition in this photo and have recently been stuck at home playing around with and trying to improve my free to download actions toolkit.

 

If you have any suggestions or ideas on how I could improve my toolkit I'd be super gracious to hear it.

Here's a nifty cityscape photo remixed by me.

 

Dropped a filter in to cut some part of the haze making the buildings pop out more against the twilight sky.

Also tried to enhance the midtones in the buildings to draw more attention to the car light trails, might have failed at that lol.

Here's a minimalistic yet super appealing sunset picture taken by Mazzall (www.flickr.com/photos/mazzali/2449050224/).

 

In this I've added some blur to the clouds and juiced up some part of the sun so you can feel those warming rays. I've also sharpened the foreground and changed up the hue of the dirt to give that colour contrast. Finally I've topped off the product with some noise reduction in the sky.

Serendipity is a very important part of a photographer's toolkit. As hard as we work to get some photos, it seems that occasionally an out of the ordinary opportunity lands right in front of us.

 

Nothing unusual at all about this Monarch pose. What was unusual is that it is a tagged Monarch...sporting a tag from Kansas University. I photographed several others with the same tag, but different numbers. No way of knowing where or when they were tagged, but for several days they were in the gardens where I shoot my my macros.

 

Speaking of which, I drove by yesterday, and crews were tilling the garden plots under in preparation for winter. The first HARD freeze was late this year, and I suspect these employees only work until a certain date...hence the tilling while the weather was still warm and sunny. That will bring my outdoor macro work to an end until next March or April.

 

I still have a gazillion photos previously taken, and several indoor photography projects to occupy the winter hours.

Here is an image that I've remixed from a photo taken by Michael E.(www.flickr.com/photos/24842334@N07/15095958835/) I give all the credit to him for taking the photo, his initial processing and kindly sharing this photo under the Creative Commons licence.

I made colour + dodge/burn changes to the mountain range area and the sky of the original image using my free to download Photoshop Elements Actions Toolkit.

Physics: A classical toolkit

 

Malcolm LongairNature 550, 185–186 (12 October 2017)doi:10.1038/550185aPublished online 11 October 2017

  

It is a matter for celebration when two illustrious theoreticians such as Kip Thorne and Roger Blandford provide an in-depth description of the fundamentals of classical physics. Modern Classical Physics is the fruit of three decades or more of teaching this material to first-year graduates. And it is informed by the duo's numerous major research contributions — Thorne, for example, won a share in this year's physics Nobel prize. The sheer amount of material covered and the effort that has gone into condensing it into a single, beautifully produced volume is extraordinarily impressive. The result is a book of some 1,550 pages, weighing in at around 3.5 kilograms.

 

Covering the six major subject areas listed in the subtitle — from optics to relativity — the book presupposes a strong understanding of the standard approaches to classical mechanics, electromagnetic theory, elementary thermodynamics and applied mathematics. Lagrangian and Hamiltonian mechanics and dynamics, as coordinate-independent descriptions of the physical laws, are assumed to be in the reader's armoury.

 

Basic quantum mechanics is also assumed. It comes as a surprise at first to find how ubiquitous Planck's constant h — which always signifies the involvement of quantum concepts — is in several of their arguments on classical physics. There are, of course, splendid precedents for this. One is in classical statistical physics, which uses the concept of discrete energy levels, now deeply embedded in quantum mechanics, as a trick to calculate exactly energy distribution (the separation of these levels is eventually set equal to zero, to recover the classical picture). Thorne and Blandford use the same tactic, but with the quantum-energy elements hν, where ν is frequency, and set h equal to zero to obtain the desired classical continuous result. The authors extend this approach successfully to many areas — for example, to plasma physics, in which the role of induced processes appears elegantly.

 

I welcome this book for many reasons. It is not at all easy to give students a proper appreciation of how physicists think about the foundations and applications of the discipline. The multifaceted, extensive nature of physics means that there is no one best way of appreciating its content, and (although they do not like being told this) students have to find their own way of understanding it. A single lecture course on any of the topics here is not enough to give the deep insights needed to make creative use of the tools of the trade.

 

Thorne and Blandford take every opportunity to help the reader and emphasize the coherence and long-range connections between apparently different areas of study. And the book is contemporary in content and feel: the collapse of the World Trade Center's twin towers on 11 September 2001, the first detection of gravitational waves in 2015, the physics of tsunamis, the stress polishing of telescope mirrors and the physics of swimming all appear naturally in the development of the physics.

 

The authors admit that they have been strongly influenced by the magisterial ten-volume Course of Theoretical Physics — published by Lev Landau and Evgeny Lifshitz between the 1950s and the 1980s — and by The Feynman Lecture on Physics, first published in 1964. Their approach is a synthesis of these: the rigour and authority of Landau and Lifshitz, and the more intuitive arguments and flashes of insight of Richard Feynman. A plethora of hints, analogies, careful explanations and cross-references aid understanding. I particularly applaud the close attention to the realms of validity of the theoretical infrastructures that the authors create in parameter space. Also to be strongly welcomed is their inclusion of a number of topics that tend to be squeezed out of physics courses — elasticity, stress–strain relations, plasma physics and magnetohydrodynamics are a few examples.

 

The mathematical framework set out in Chapter 1 provides the coherence. The approach is strongly geometrically based: geometrical objects represent physical variables, what the authors refer to as coordinate-free tensor algebra. Although this is familiar to contemporary applied mathematicians and theoretical physicists, it may well be new territory for some classical-physics lecturers. Throughout most of the book, the mathematical essentials could be appreciated without adopting that approach, but its advantages are considerable when the authors discuss the fields in which they are international leaders — general relativity, black holes and high-energy astrophysics.

 

All that said, I was constantly thinking about how I would have presented the same material using more elementary techniques. In my view, simpler, perhaps more intuitive, approaches can help students to appreciate the greater power of the methods adopted in this book, and would reinforce the new graduate student's capacity to master the material. For instance, Thorne and Blandford's geometrical approach leads directly to the invariant number density of states in phase space in relativity. I derive the same result more primitively, by considering the various aberration effects involved in observing a relativistically moving black body; in this way, the student appreciates more about aberration effects in relativity, as well as about a key relativistic invariant. This is not a criticism, but rather an example of the advantages of adopting multiple approaches.

I combined the exposures later-on in Phototshop, layer mode: Lighten.

Little trick besides the exposure fusion: With this type of strobe shooting, you can filter and adjust your lightsource later-on -- just by adjusting the layer opacity and by adding a Photoshop photo filter. As you can see, I trimmed left "light source" towards a warmer tone and the other one towards a cooler tone.

f/20?

Well ... not the best aperture for that lens, but an aperture, that renders the whole knife sharp. Alternatively I could have stacked some shots -- which is not really easily possible with the chosen multi-flash exposure grick -- or I could have chosen a wider distance (which collided with the angle I chose).

Ended up visiting Moreton Island (Queensland, Australia) a couple of weeks ago and never really got to getting this photo processed until now. When we went, even though the weather was terrible, even though it was just rained and even though it was windy this little photo opportunity popped up. I guess it shows that throughout the struggle no matter how bleak or dark it may be there's always that light at the end of the tunnel!

 

Took this handheld with the Sony A6000 mirrorless camera and the FE 28-70mm lens (equiv 52-105mm) attached. Such a light piece of kit too might upgrade again soon to the A7/A7r. Would have been good to have the tripod for this one, but oh well, it is what it is. A6000 Performance at 3200 ISO
