Thank You Veterans

Thank You Veterans

In America, we wouldn’t enjoy the freedoms that we experience every day without the veterans who sacrifice so much to serve and protect life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.  Today I am remembering all of those veterans who are no longer with us, and recognizing with gratitude those who are currently serving abroad and those who have served in the past.

Boston Skyline

Digging further through the archives this week, I’ve finally had the time to process a few shots taken with the Carl Zeiss 18mm lens that I rented a few months back during the Worldwide Photo Walk, which I participated in.  The walk meandered through the Seaport District of Boston – and I had some shots that I was really excited about processing, but for one reason or another – I never made it to seeing what the finished product might look like with a few of the exposures.  Part of the problem was that each image looked so good (when I actually came up with a decent composition) thanks in large part to the high quality Zeiss lens, which seems to capture the colors straight from my brain.  This is both a blessing and a challenge for HDR processing, as any combination of multiple exposures with wonderfully represented/saturated colors in each exposure, tends to create an extreme look when I use my typical steps in post-processing.  I think once I get the hang of it, the exposures or “brackets” from each set will provide some incredible color and spatial data…than when combined will create a gorgeous shot, similar to what I’ve found with my Zeiss 100mm Hasselblad shots.  Hope you enjoy 🙂

Also – Please take a moment sometime during your day today to reflect and remember the Veterans that have served our country and protected the freedoms that we are so lucky to have here in America.  It definitely wouldn’t be the same place without the sacrifices that so many have made on our behalf.

Veterans Day & A Market Street Evening

Today I first wanted to thank and pay respect to those who have served and those who continue to serve our country.  Our Veterans’ contribution to our country is immeasurable and its importance is beyond words. This Veterans Day is special as I remember my enigmatic & profound grandfather, Murray J. Cohen, who served our country during WWII and was on the shores of Omaha Beach on D Day + 1.

Here’s a shot of a painting of the American flag as seen in the NYC Museum of Modern Art:

As an added treat, here’s an evening shot of Market Street with the evening glow of the street lamps setting in.
