Friday Photo News & Updates

I’d like to start off by thanking everyone who responded to Wednesday’s post about continuing to build our Photoshop & Photography Community. I truly appreciate you taking the time to share a little bit of your stories with everyone. If you haven’t shared yet, please do! I’d love to hear from as many of you as possible!

There is a lot going on over the next couple of weeks through the beginning of May – personally, here on the blog, and across the digital imaging industry.

Points of View Photo Project #29

Points of View Photo Project #29 - Source ImageWelcome back for another week of the Points of View Photo Project!

This week, in honor of St. Patrick’s Day, we’re taking another look at the Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge that I featured the other day. Shot in Northern Ireland on March 18 2005 while I was on vacation to the region my grandmother’s family was from.

After looking through the different entries this week, be sure to download the images for next time – offered by our regular contributor, Hendrik Demey from Belgium. They are “three bracketed images (+/- 2EV), taken this winter on the domain of a local small castle.”

Enjoy this week’s images and I hope you will join us next week!

Points of View Photo Project #28

Points of View Photo Project # 28 - Courtesy of Chris MooreHappy Friday everyone! You know what that means, it’s time for the 28th installment of the Points of View Photo Project!

As I mentioned last week, this week’s source image comes all the way from Antarctica courtesy of my brother, Chris.

For those of you who might be new to this photo project of ours, each week I post a source image (either my own or user-submitted) that is straight out of the camera without any post-processing whatsoever. Anyone is free to download it, edit it however they like, and return it to me with an explanation of their processing so I can post it with the other submissions.

But why keeping trying to explain it when you can see how it all works for yourself with this week’s source image. Enjoy!

Points of View Photo Project #27

Points of View Photo Project #27 - Columbus Skyline - Courtesy of Marc BentonWelcome to the 27th week of the Points of View Photo Project!

This week we are fortunate to have a source image from Friend-of-the-Blog Marc Benton of the Columbus Skyline. Thank you Marc!

We have 6 versions for your enjoyment this week! I am excited for the continued growth of the project and I encourage you all to give it a shot for next week. We have a special image at the end of the post that comes from my brother, Chris, from his recent trip to Antarctica.

So have a look at what we all did to process this initial photo and, who knows, you might learn a little something too!

Points of View Photo Project #26

Points of view Photo Project #26 Source ImageWelcome to the 26th edition of the Points of View Photo Project here at Jason D. Moore Photography!

This week’s source image came from regular contributor, Henrik Demey from Belgium. About the photo, he writes:

“This picture was taken during a city trip to Prague, Czechia. It shows the central interior of the Saint Nicholas Church, on the Old Town Square. This baroque church dates from 1735.”

Thanks for sharing your shot with us, Hendrik! If any of you would like to share one of your shots with us to use as our source image in an upcoming week, please send it to me at pov@jasondmoore.com and you may see it in the next few weeks.

And now, onto this week’s contributions!

Points of View Photo Project #25

Points of View Photo Project #25 - Source ImageHey Everyone! Welcome to the 25th installment of the Points of View Photo Project!

Today’s source image was taken on my honeymoon back in the fall of 2007. We went back to the park where the ceremony was held and we noticed all along the riverbed, someone had gone and stacked rocks into hundreds and hundreds of these things. Very strange, but very cool!

Click “more” to see how Hendrick Demey and I processed this photo. Then, scroll to the bottom of this post to grab the source image for next week (generously provided by Hendrik).

Points of View Photo Project #24

Points of View Photo ProjectWelcome to the 24th edition of the Points of View Photo Project here at Jason D. Moore Photography!

UPDATE: New deadline for submitting your version of the image for week #25!

Each week readers from all over the world tackle a common source image and display it to show the many interpretations, perspectives, and approaches that can be taken from the same starting point. I always fins it interesting how a single image can be manipulated and processed to express such different feelings and emotions.

If you are new to the project, or if you’ve been following along regularly and would like to participate, be sure to scroll to click on “More…” and scroll down to the bottom to download the source image for next week and learn how to submit.

But now, on with this week’s images!

Points of View Photo Project: #23

Points of View Photo ProjectWelcome to our 23rd edition of the Points of View Photo Project here at Jason D. Moore Photography!

We saw a really good showing this week with 5 participants in the project! Thank you all so much! I think we have a great mixture of interpretations this time around that I’m sure you will enjoy. I particularly appreciate it when someone really makes it their own and does something special with it – be it a nice processing treatment or an outside-the-box edit job.

Before we get too much farther I’d like to, once again, extend an invitation to you to share your out-of-the-camera original images to serve as our starting point in an upcoming week. Read on down to the bottom of the post for more info and where to send it.

And now, on to the images!
