 Twilight on the Baltic - Nikon D750, 1/400 @ f/13, ISO 125, 120mm - I hate to admit it, but this was taken from the deck of a cruise ship. Still, we try to capture the best light where we find it. This is one of my highest rated photographs.

 Time's Arrow - Nikon D750, 1/60 @ f/13, ISO 100, 70mm - This photo was taken at Omaha Beach in Normandy, France. Yes, those colors in the water are natural. Check out my poem of the same title in the Poetry Section!

 Sacre-Coeur, Paris - Nikon D750, 1/100 f/14 ISO200 Nikkor 24-70 at 40mm - Processed with Lightroom, Color Efex Pro 4, Silver Efex Pro 2. This fabulous cathedral sits on a hill overlooking the city of Paris. The building is stark white and the color photo was acceptable with a deep blue sky (I used a polarizer) and the green of the trees. However, I think the black and white image takes it to the next level. I selected the Full Spectrum preset and applied a red filter in post. As you can see, the processing highlights the white of the building against a dark sky.

 London Light Trails - Fuji X100T, 8sec. @ f/9.0, ISO 200, 23mm - Something of a cliche, but still fun to shoot!

 Santa Maria della Salute - Nikon D7100, 1/250 @ f/11, ISO 200, 85mm - An average photograph until I added a texture layer. This photo has been shown in a local gallery.

 Light and Shadow at the Alhambra - Nikon D750, 1/30 @ f/4.0, ISO 6400, 62mm - Shot on a night visit to the Alhambra in Spain. I had to hand hold this one. I altered the toning in post and diffused the lighting. This image has been a very successful one for me.

 Windmills of Mykonos - Nikon D7100, 1/160 @ f/14, ISO 200, 25mm - The circular polarizer made the shot. One of my most popular photographs!

 The Hermitage - Nikon D750, 1/60 @ f/6.3, ISO 1600 - I don't recall exactly how long I waited to get this shot without people, but it was awhile. Worth the wait, though! This place has to be on your bucket list.

 Calle Benito Juarez - Nikon D7000, 1/200 @ f/11, ISO 100, 34mm - A small village in Oaxaca, Mexico soon after sunrise. The mist blanketed the dirt streets, further diffusing the soft light. I have shown this image in a local gallery to positive feedback.
