Haunted Mansion Part 2

http://www.redbubble.com/people/dlamb/works/11886680-haunted-mansion-part-2
Another shot and a different angle than usual of the Haunted Mansion in Magic Kingdom, showing the rarely used front door. You can mistake this for an actual home from this view point, with no line of people or souvenir stands visible. It was a naturally overcast day, and to give a hint on how I got this angle, there is some actual steam floating into the shot. I did add some clouds from another photo I took to break up the washed out gray sky. RAW processed into black and white with Photoshop CS5.

Spring Sun

http://www.redbubble.com/people/dlamb/works/11855899-spring-sun
A patch of a bamboo like grass growing in the sun. This is one of a few photos that are based on Instagram images I have taken. I use Instagram like a sketchbook for photos. If one of the shots I take using my phone and Instagram looks particularly good, I will return to that spot and either recreate the photo using my Canon 40D, or do a variation of the original photo. Shooting into the sun combined with a polarizer filter produced an interesting color contrast, which I boosted slightly in Photoshop. I do not use filters in Photoshop to recreate the effects in Instagram, but a variety of other techniques.

Photonic Emission

http://www.redbubble.com/people/dlamb/works/11788404-photonic-emission?ref=recent-owner
This is a drop of water and glycerin on a CD, with natural light from the late afternoon sun shining through the window. I have always loved how light behaves when entering a drop of water, and the CD added some 'natural' lighting effects. I used a 44mm extension tube with my Sigma 17-70mm lens, @ 70mm.

Winter Trees at Dusk

http://www.redbubble.com/people/dlamb/works/8609859-winter-trees-at-dusk
A beautiful winter day that seemed more like spring, I waited for the sun to set behind the leafless trees. This was shot @ Fort Washington State Park, PA back in March of 2012. One of the park rangers who was trying to shut the park down (closes at sunset) was good enough to reward my patience by allowing me to stay a little longer than he would like to capture this.

Boxelder Bug

http://www.redbubble.com/people/dlamb/works/11764687-boxelder-bug
Macro shot of a Boxelder bug, who visit my apartment a bit too often this time of year. I thought it was a noisy picture, but it turns out it was a coating of dust that the bug was trying to clean off. I guess it means it is time to clean the dust off of my window sill as well.
