This shot was taken in woods off Cades Cove Loop Road in the Great Smokey Mountains National Park in the first week of June this year. I liked the lighting through the trees and the slightly surreal look of the scene, which I added to in post processing.
This was my second shot submitted under the "Missing" assignment at the BAPC's "Honors Night" on Thursday. The "Missing" connection I was going for was a "time gone by". Dianne and I were walking down the street in Bryson City, NC when we came to this old single chair barber shop. It was closed and I took this shot through the plate glass window in front.
This is a seven shot composite, six stitched together for the background, taken on a cloudy early morning at the Chattanooga National Cemetery in Tennessee. I entered it in the BAPC "Honor's Night" competition under the assignment of "Missing" and received a bronze award.
I work in the industrial distribution sector as a salesman for a master distributor of valves and fittings in Houston, TX. I am a member of the Bay Area Photo Club which meets at the Art Alliance Center at Clear Lake in Clear Lake Texas on Tuesday nights. I shoot with an Olympus E-3 and my favorite lens in my Zuiko 12-60.
