Heading out to sea – World Wide Photowalk 2009, originally uploaded by Photomike07.
Looking for a unique perspective on a location that I have frolicked (frolicked???) during my younger years while on a photowalk today with about 40 other photographers was kind of a challenge. I must admit, I had a few nice chats with some fellow shooters (isn’t that what its all about actually?), but my shots are….well…chalk full of disappointment. A complete memory card full of garbage as it were. This one is definitely a case of “fix it in post.” This image didn’t really come to life until it got a complete overhaul in Photoshop CS4. I have another that I worked on a bit that I’ll post later in the week. Well, I guess 2 keepers isn’t too bad.
On a completely different subject, I have arrived safe and sound in Miami. Insane drivers down here….yikes. Saw an overturned van that kinda became part of a warehouse. As I passed the carnage, I couldn’t help but yell out “Told ya to slow down ya jack ass!” Sorry, these drivers make me nuts!
Anyway… We are at The Turnberry Resort for a corporate event for the next 5 nights. Awesome bed, comfortable room, and a tired body. TIme for some shut eye before the madness in the AM. More on ALL of this later…..
I found the drivers were nuts in a few places in Florida!! Whatever you did to this sure made it a keeper. Really nice Mike.
everyday it gets better and better nice to see
wonderful work .
Wooo… that’s incredible !
The worst drivers I’ve ever encountered were up in New England.
Especially Rhode Island!!! I haven’t been to Miami yet. I guess I’ll have to bet extra careful to watch out for "the other guy on the road"
there, too. This is a beautiful image!!! The orange color is outstanding.

Interesting post work Mike. The shoots with friends are what I really look forward to, and if I get even one keeper, it was worth it. The traffic?…………I don’t think I can print that here in Flickr.
wow! I’m fascinated by the rays you captured! It looks amazing. Hope you had a great time Mike
Awesome shot. Love those rays. Great PP work, Mike.

Thanks for coming out to the walk Mike. It was nice to finally meet the man behind the photographs. Sorry to hear you didn’t get any good shots. If it makes you feel any better I didn’t get any either… lol. But I did get a couple from the abandoned underground parking lot that a few of us went to after the walk.
Nice PP work then..it looks awesome!
Beautiful! Thanks for sharing with us 🙂
