Photo of the Month

Selected by the TCCC Members

 

December 2014 Photos

••∞••

Black & White

Bud Friesen - Wheel and Webs

The image was made at the Allegan Power Plant.  The wheel caught my eye right away.  I liked the way the specular sunlight was on the wheel.  I really wanted to get a more straight on composition but as soon as I shifted to the right I lost the specular light.  The webs kind of help reflect the fact that the machinery is no longer used.  There was a slight bit of green flakes in a couple of places so decided to go with black and white.  Converted in PS.

The image was done with the Canon EOS 7D, 18-135mm, f3.5-5.6 at 39mm, 0.6 sec. exp, f9, ISO 1250, Partial Metering on a tripod.

Color

Gary Huttenstine - Pine Martin Busted

Pine “Martin” Busted, was taken on the back deck of our home in the Hiawatha National Forest just south of Paradise, Michigan in the Upper Peninsula during the winter of 2010 on the 16th day of February.  The American Pine Marten, Martes americana, is a member of the weasel family and is active from the northern upper peninsula north into Canada and as far west as Alaska.  Although recovering, their population density is low to threatened.  “Marti” as we call him, was caught raiding the bird’s suet feeder with a vengeance.  He ate it all in just two days of visits.  Great photo – op.

The photo was shot using a Canon EOS Digital Rebel XT, handheld, with a 70-300mm IS Canon zoom lens at 210mm, 1/320 sec, f/5.6, ISO 400.  Post processing was conducted in Photoshop CS6 camera raw with soft post crop vignette.  Thanks for your votes.

Which one would you pick?

Go to the Honor Image Galleries and see which ones you pick as the best, would these be your selections?
