La Rambla

Everyone told me it was touristy…they were right. I was told it was crowded…correct. I was warned that the restaurants and stores were expensive…yup. But to go to Barcelona and not take a stroll on La Rambla now that would be a missed opportunity. Everyone should experience it at least once.

Blue Garden View

Framing a scene, like this view of Park Guell in Barcelona, really makes it pop. The blue wall doesn’t hurt either.

After the Rain

When we arrived at Parc Guell (after a gruelling uphill climb) it was cloudy and raining. Parc Guell is beautiful but it absolutely radiates in the sunshine. Luckily a half hour after arriving the clouds dispersed and the sun came out.

It had already stopped racing but people still had their umbrellas out. This image with its bright skies, people holding umbrellas and the partial view of the park with the sea beyond, I felt was a good candidate for a digital painting. After processing this in Lightroom I used Topaz Detail and Topaz Impression to create the final image.

Deflection in the Old City

Sometimes you get the shot even if you don’t mean to. I was focusing on the buildings in the old city of Jerusalem when these two gentlemen walked into my shot. The one on the left was trying to avoid my taking a picture of him but in doing so gave me an image I was quite pleased with.
