Welcome/Willkommen!

Hello and welcome. Hope you enjoy the images I have posted. Please do not reproduce them without my permission. Most are available as note/greeting cards or as prints/enlargements. Thank you for visiting my site and your comments.
Many have asked about the Header image above, which I named 'Eerie Genny'. It was originally shot with film [taken on the shore of the Genesee River near the Univ. of Rochester]. During the darkroom development, I flashed a light above the tray. The process, known as 'solarization', produces eerie, ghostlike effects; some have mistaken this image as an infra-red photo. Some 35+ years later, I scanned and digitized the print, and did a little modern day editing, and, voila.

Post Processing Abstracts 5

    As Fall approaches, it's time to do a bit of cleaning up; i.e. of my computer desk top. I have the last of my 'orbs' to share  today, and, one is actually originated from something other than a floral image. Can you tell that the bottom one was from a series of beer taps? I confess that I don't do this process much these days; too much else on my plate. Anyway, I had described the procedure in a previous posting, but as a response to a query in the Comments section. I will repeat it below so that anyone who reads this can have a try at it.
    First, choose your image and load it into Photoshop Elements. Then, go to Filter -> Distort -> Polar Coordinates. Select polar to rectangle and click OK. Then, go to Image. Select Image Rotation, then flip the canvas vertical. Go back to Filter -> Distort -> Polar Coordinates. Select rectangle to polar and click OK. Save. That's all there is to it.
