Years ago, an invasive species of trees at Stump Pass Beach were poisoned by the State of Florida and many of these trees still remain standing at the surf's edge. Along this mile stretch of beach on the Gulf of Mexico, seashells and shark teeth wash up, swimmers frolick in the waves and anglers fish the surf. White snowy egrets, least terns, and magnificent frigatebirds are found along its coastline. The park is located at the south end of Manasota Key, accessible from off I-75 at exit 191. Stump Pass Beach State Park is situated at the southwest corner of Charlotte County in southwestern Florida.

Curious as to why I named this photograph “Inbound?” Hint… it is not about the wave.. You will have to view the image enlarged to fill your screen to find the answer. :^)

A here’s a note to my fellow photographers… chromatic abberations, those distracting red, green, or white fringes that appear on the borders of high contrast areas (such as the trees and bushes against the bright sky), can be a real nuisance to get rid of in images like this. That’s been especially true of the white fringes. After spending half an hour with the brush and clone stamp tools working on this image, I decided there had to be a better way. I experimented with Photoshop’s Color Select to create a black mask that revealed the white chromatic fringes and then I painted over them by sampling the surrounding color on the layer… not only did this save me tons of time, it worked much better than I anticipated. Let me know if you are interested and I’ll look into creating a short video about it.

This is the first photo that I have processed from a recent family photosthoot (I'm waiting for the family to proof the photos before I dive into processing them). This one was shot near sunset while my youngest grandson handled a softbox to light him.

This landscape was shot on the third night in a row that I visited this same place at Lake Argyle recently. The autumn colors along the shoreline were more vivid than they had been in many years and the water level was significanlty lower (work is done in the cove at the boat house, which is at the far end of the lake... in the opposite direction of this shot). Just guessing, I think that the water level may have been as much as twenty feet lower than normal.

Naturally, there were deer, raccoon, and other wildlife tracks along the muddy shoreline that had been previously covered by water... which inspired me to create this composite. It an HDR created from five bracketed shots using Photomatix Pro 6.
