Wescott Hall at FSU, Tallahassee, FL

  Two different post processed versions of the same photo taken this past weekend at Wescott Hall, Florida State University in Tallahassee, FL.

Both photos are derived from the same original photo shot with a Nikon D5100 with Nikkor 18-55 kit lens.

The first image was processed with several Photoshop and Topaz plugins to create a crisp and colorful watercolor-like appearance. The second one was processed with Nik Software Color EFX Pro and Viveza along with French Kiss Textures to achieve the look of a waterstained oil color painting.

Sunset – Key Largo, FL

View of the sunset on Key Largo, FL, looking west from the beach at  the Marriott Resort towards Key Largo Bay.

The Florida Keys are famous for their breathtaking sunsets. On any given day, the beaches are filled with people watching for the “green flash” – the moment when the sun disappears completely below the horizon.

Shot with Lumix LX-5 and post processed with Nik Color EFX Pro, Viveza, OnOne PhotoFrames Pro and French Kiss Textures by Leslie Nicole.

Hand Colored – Cathedral Basilica, St. Augustine, FL

The Cathedral Basilica of St. Augustine was founded in September, 1565, making it the oldest parish in the US and Canada. It sits in the center of historic St. Augustine, America’s oldest city. It underwent major renovation on its 400th anniversary in 1965 but still retains the authentic flavor of the Spanish Franciscans who founded the parish.

Shot with Lumix LX-5, processed with Nik Color EFX Pro, Viveza and French Kiss Textures, printed in black and white on archival 100% cotton rag paper then hand colored with pastels.

Kayaks – Key Largo, FL

I was walking the jetty in Key Largo at sunset last Thursday night when I came across a bunch of kayaks moored on the dock. This picture practically took itself! Nothing like sunset in the keys to take your breath away. It was only a two hour drive to Key Largo, but it seemed like I was so far away from home. Life is slower, the people are nicer and the water was a balmy 84 degrees. Life is good!

The Blue Anchor Pub, Delray Beach

I passed this pub the other day in Downtown Delray and could not resist giving it “the treatment”. The blue of the building, the blue of the sky and the red of the brick sidewalk were all perfect!
