Petite Broughtonia Orchid by braxtonds
Petite Broughtonia Orchid
Petite Broughtonia Orchid cross with Laelia and Cattleya, from my personal collection. This yellow orchid with red fringe blooms at least once a year with cute 1-2" flowers. The petals have a gorgeous blush with a bright yellow center. The delicate blooms always garner attention from passers-by. Set against a black velvet background to highlight the amazing colors.

Interstate Bridge: Before/After by braxtonds
Interstate Bridge: Before/After
Interstate Bridge: Before/After

HDR shot of the Interstate bridge in the Cuyahoga Valley near Boston Mills. I love this bridge, it is so iconic to the area. I took this photo after most of the brush along the side of the road had died down. I parked my car on the other side of the road, hoped the guard rail and was sitting on the incline to get the perfect angle.

This HDR was for converted in color, but I wasn't happy with the bright blue sky and the drab landscape since it was late fall. I then converted the image to black and white and textured with a deep sepia tone. Final touches such as straightening and curves and add localized contrast with dodge/burn.

I had an interest in photography early on, but hadn't taken it further than just casual vacation pictures until after college when I realized that I completed my degree in Biological Sciences and hadn't taken one 'fun' class. As a graduation present to myself I bought my first DSLR, the Nikon d40 and began my journey as a self-taught photographer. I love taking photos of the world as I see it, but trying to express myself through photography needed something more than just focal lengths and apertures. I found Photoshop and threw myself into it. It was a creative outlet that allows the inner drama of any photo to be unleashed. I will admit that I use many techniques to push an image to something more, the key is to always allow restraint to keep the viewer grounded to this reality, well, mostly.

Tight crops, composition and drama!
