Tones on Tuesday #49 10.9.12

I want to apologize for not commenting on your photos lately. Work has been much more of a time commitment this year than I expected and I am still struggling to get everything done. I hope you know that I look at each of your photos and continue to be inspired and in awe of your talent. I truly appreciate you linking up anyways! Now on with the showcases...

Sivinden at Wait a Minute...
The composition here is lovely and draws your eye back. I love how the black and white softens and creates a timeless feel. Beautiful glowing shot! Thank you for sharing Sivinden.

Stephanie at Creative Indulgences
Such a great whimsical photo with wonderful muted tones and texture. Thank you for sharing Stephanie!

I love how Marlo took a beautiful photo and made it look like a piece of art with the texture and processing. This is lovely! Thank you for linking up!

Sivinden, Stephanie and Marlo please go HERE to grab your showcase button.

Now it's your turn to share your photo with altered tones. Here are the guidelines for Tones on Tuesday:

  • The basic idea is to share one photo where you have altered the tones. Such as a black and white, sepia toned, selective coloring or colored photo. Feel free to share the original and edit, or just the edit.
  • Please share a photo that you have taken and edited yourself.
  • One photo per photographer please. If you have more than one photo in your post please indicate which one is for Tones on Tuesday.
  • Please link up with your permalink and not your blog address.
  • Attach the Tones on Tuesday button or a link back here to your post.
  • Leave comments for at least 3 other participants, share the love :o)!
  • Have fun!

Night turns to day looking out over Seattle from Kerry Park on Queen Anne Hill. I got up early on Sunday morning to spend some time witnessing the beauty that is sunrise. As I waited other photographers gathered to see the spectacle and in silence we watched the sky brighten. Once it was over tripods were packed up and I headed for some much needed salted carmel hot chocolate to warm fingers and toes. Early morning wake up and cold were well worth it to see the dawn. 

Settings: ISO 100, 50mm, ss4.0sec, f/11 (on tripod)
"Desire makes life happen. Makes it matter. Makes everything worth it. Desire is life. Hunger to see the next sunrise or sunset, to touch the one you love, to try again. Hell would be waking up and wanting nothing." - Karen Marie Moning
