False Creek at Dusk

Just as I thought I had enough of HDR, I came across a whole new way of using it. I decided to use it at dusk to bring out some depth and saturation. it worked amazing!

I went out on an overcast evening just as the sun was setting. I was very lucky because there was a clearing in the west letting a spill of warm light into the sky.

Once again I am addicted to HDR and gloomy Vancouver clouds. Bring on the rain clouds because I am so over clear blue skies, they are so boring.

Skimboarding on Spanish banks

Since moving to Vancouver I've been trying to find another sport to keep my adrenaline addiction satisfied. I stumbled upon skimboarding again through an old friend and great skimboarder Neil. It isn't nearly as exhilarating as mountain biking or snowboarding but for now its keeping me challenged and at the beach.

Flat water skimming may not seem like the most photogenic subject for a photograph but I tried anyways and was pretty happy. Now that my initial HDR crave has subsided I am leaning back towards creating complex images using my texture collection and mashing up some more graphical looking work.
