Monday Window – November 28, 2022

Windows and Flags

Once again reaching back into the archives. Here are a couple of photos taken with my old Nikon D60 – my first digital camera.

The first photo below is from 2012. An image from Savannah. Itt was a cloudy day and the windows were in shade. I had to hold the sky back some and lightened the building facade. The exif data says that the lens was at 55mm (about 90mm equivalent for full frame) and f/5.6 at 1/125s and 140 ISO.

The next one is a year younger. This is from Buckhead, of course. That’s the place made from glass – or so it seems. With a similar cloudy day, it is all monochrome except for the flag. The camera settings were lens at 55mm, f/8 at 1/60s and 100 ISO.

A crop from this photo (also at the top):

Monday Window – November 7, 2022

High Arches

We all seem to like windows with arches. Here is another sleeper from my archives.

An old photo from nine years ago. This is the Manger Building. Once Savannnah’s finest hotel, and maybe once again. There are plans to restore the current office building back into a hotel.

Here is the original photo:

Least I can do is restore the photo into a more impressive image. Let’s replace the overcast sky and do some perspective adjustment. And a closer look to the arched windows on the tenth floor. Oh, and there are “windows” in that street lamp.

Monday Window – July 4, 2022

First and Last

In my previous post I promised to show some photos from an old archive folder. The reason was that the first photo was of a window, and the last three photos also were photos that contained windows.

So here we are. First I will show you the images without cropping. Pretty much every photo I take will undergo some cropping in post-processing. Much of that comes due to my eyesight that is not as good as it once was and neither is my ability to hold the camera steady. I make up for these shortcomings by shooting the view wider to provide space for proper composition, leveling, and such.

And now with a bit of cropping.

The first photo showed the window “stuck” to the top of the frame. I felt that it might look better when balanced vertically. There is also a slight shift to the right. I think it works better that way.

The second photo shows the top of the tourist boat River Queen. There was too much sky at the top and left. Here the structure is more prominent.

For the third photo I wanted to crop in tighter to make the flags more prominent. Since this post publishes on the fourth of July, I wanted to say

Happy Birthday U.S.A. !

Lots of windows in the last photo, but a bit far away. But more importantly, the horizon was not level in the original.
