purple fire

When you’re in a photo-taking funk, people will often suggest revisiting your photo archives. You will see old photos in a different way or perhaps apply a different post-process method that will bring new life.

I shot in the back yard eight years ago. I decided to process in in Nik HDR Efex Pro and I think the results are pretty interesting. A contribution to Skywatch Friday.

    Wow Wayne! This is gorgeous. I was out walking my dog the other day and saw some really pretty red, but only had my smart phone and by the time I got back to the house for the big camera it was gone. Nice job capturing this.

    I have almost finished a photo book using a lot of archived photos, some 50 years old. Good way of remembering where we started from.

    Since Google made Nik free I have been using with my ACDSee Pro 9. It gives my a whole new outlook on editing photos.

  12. I like it. Beautiful colours.

  13. Overall, I am not a fan of HDR, but sometimes the results can be spectacular. This photo is “one of those times!”
    It is AMAZING…
