303/366 Bruno Banani

My Dad always gets me some aftershave for Christmas and the latest batch was this Bruno Bonani which I photographed and then took into photoshop to mess around with. I had an idea that I wanted some subtle textures and a light black to grey transition in the background…so how I ended up with this is anyone’s guess…though it could have a lot to do with me being a bit rubbish in photoshop 😉

Reflections of Doctors Pond in Great Dunmow

I was up early on Sunday, but missed the sun rise…so not that early. Still, Dunmow was quiet and Doctors Pond was very still giving some great reflections.

Reflections of Doctors Pond, Great Dunmow

Doctors Pond in Great Dunmow is just down the road from where I live and so I get to photograph it quite often. I was particularly pleased with how today’s early morning 5 shot HDR came out.

If you would like a print of this picture you can get one here –

I drove out to the supermarket last night and on the way I noticed the setting moon which looked fantastic, so I rushed home, got the camera out, dashed out only to find it had set. Not to worry, I wandered around Doctors Pond as it got dark and gave some night photography a go. There’s nothing different to night photogarphy really, its just dark 😉  however, I’m still quite pleased with my first attempt.
