  • H.M.S. Warrior 'Painting'

    Still thinking about giving images a more painterly feel, I suddenly realised that for this purpose I could probably make very good use of images that I previously considered unusable due to low quality, or other problems. One image that I immedia...

  • Painterly Ashley

    Still on the dog theme, but going in a different processing direction. I've been looking at the possibility of giving images a painterly feel. This is just an experiment - the image isn't ideal, due to (among other problems) the burnt out whites o...

  • Isn't She Lovely

    And very cute. But a picture says more than thirteen words :P :

  • Couldn't Resist

    I've had a very busy two weeks, especially the last week - and the weekend was crazy busy. Fifteen, sixteen hour workdays, in bed by 2:00 A.M. Exhausting, and no time to myself. But yesterday when I was rushing about to get everything in my crazy ...

  • Blog Post Views

    As another EPZ member rightly points out, if you compare photos in the Gallery with blog posts, the blog posts seem to get more attention. I'd go even further and say that they seem to get a disproportionate amount of attention, in comparison wit...

  • Car

    There are several photographers on EPZ who take really good pictures of cars, and I don't count myself among them - I wish I could, but I've never taken shots as good as they take them. But that doesn't mean that I can't enjoy giving it a go. A...

  • Golden Girl

    I like to photograph many different things, but my favourite subject will always be my lovely canine friend and companion, Ashley, for as long as she's still here. And of course when we recently started having nicer weather, and the light was good...

  • Animal Photographer

    Time to write something about someone else's photography. I don't do this often, it's not often that I really like all of the work of one photographer - with a few notable exceptions. (British landscape photographer Joe Cornish and American landsc...

  • Three Different Takes

    This time three different versions of the same image. I came across a few more apps, and although there are overlaps with others I already have, I decided to give After Focus a go. It offers the possibility of deciding about the focus after you've...

  • The Other Way Around

    Thinking about how much I've come to love using the apps on my iPhone, and what wonderful effects I can create with them in a matter of seconds, but seeing that I was running out of nice images on my 'film roll' that I could play with, I suddenly had...

  • So Much Nicer

    I love colour, I really do. But I'm also crazy about mono infrared shots. And ever since I bought an old G2 converted for infrared, I've become convinced that IR makes what would have been a simple shot so much nicer. Take the photo below, for ins...

  • A Whole New World

    Now that I'm armed with an iPhone full of photography apps, and of course with quite a good integrated camera, I find that I take a lot more photos with my iPhone than with a regular camera. Of course, many of those photos wouldn't be taken at al...

  • Nostalgic Tree

    I'm afraid I've been playing with iPhone apps again. :P This is a lone tree on the moors. I'm not used to seeing a lot of really nice trees in my country, there are too many young and perfectly straight ones (especially in the polders poplars were...

  • Moors

    After a grey sky on Saturday, the blue skies and white clouds yesterday were quite welcome, and motivated a visit to the moors. This was taken on the moors near Ede, The Netherlands.

  • Garage Grunge

    The parking garage underneath the local SuperCoop was almost empty tonight. The perfect opportunity for a few quick shots. One of which I turned into this with the help of a few apps:
