This site has moved to another blog called, ABOUT PHOTOGRAPHY. There will me no further posts to this site. The new site will continue so show my regular shooting progress, but will also contain other topics on photography, such as hands-on equipment and software reviews, historical information on photography, and much more.

When it was set up, the DAILY STOCK SHOT PROJECT was supposed to be a one year project. Last year I extended the project another year due to the popularity of the site, but now it is time to move on.

If you wish to continue following, please visit my new blog at ABOUT PHOTOGRAPHY and save it as a new link.

Over the weekend I processed a few images for my various, on-going art portfolios.  These series were influenced by the color interpretations of Monet's Haystack paintings, where he saw colors deeper within the scenes and painted them with a greater intensity that draws attention to them.

Most of my subjects originally appeared to have a simple, often muted color palette.  I enhance these subtle colors and  bring them to the fore by shifting the images into a more enhanced color profile in post-processing.

Here are a few samples:

This is for my Sidewalk series of symmetrical abstractions found by shooting straight down and bringing out the inherent colors later in post-processing.  Taken with a Leica M9 and 35mm Summilux lens at f/11.

This is from my architectural elements series and was taken with the Nikon D800 and 24-120mm lens.

From my Patterns of Nature series, this image of a cliff in Utah was taken with the Fuji X-Pro1 and the underlying colors later enhanced in post-processing.
