During our trip to Italy last year I had the opportunity to capture some images of Pompeii patterns and details during our walking tour of the archaeological site.
This article discusses working with overcast landscape images in post, and some of the simple approaches that can be used. To help illustrate some of these techniques, this posting shares six pairs of photographs. An out-of-camera jpeg, as well as an image produced from the corresponding RAW file.
This short article features a selection of photographs of an Irish mallard in-flight. These were captured during our photography field trip to Ireland in the spring of 2019. While the main objective of our trip was to capture landscape and rural images, I took a Nikon 1 V3 fitted with a 1 Nikkor CX 70-300 mm f/4.5-5.6 with me just in case I had the opportunity to photograph some wildlife.

As a photographer, there is nothing more important than being able to reveal your photographic soul through your images. Sometimes we get caught up in quite meaningless aspects of photography.

Comparisons of trivial differences between pieces of kit. While these things may help us create our images, they are not integral parts of our photographic soul.
This article, Nikon 1 Celebration, features a selection of my favourite Nikon 1 photographs. Even though the Nikon 1 product line was discontinued almost 2 years ago (July 2018) it remains a very capable camera system.
