What do you do on a rainy day in Brickell Avenue?


We love the buildings in Brickell Avenue, even more so than the ones downtown. It is also easier to navigate, since we do, or have done, the work from the car.
This time we did not take the mirrorless system, since it was raining. Not nice to walk around in the rain on a hot day, at least for me.
I know you can get great stuff in the rain, but I prefer to do it from a sheltered location, rather than participate in the wet humidity.

SO all of this images were taken from the car, from behind the windshield or out of the closed window. It was an interesting game, because of the blue polarized or whatever top part of the glass, trying to avoid it. The camera used was the Sony RX-100 mk IV, at f/4, Auto ISO, Aperture Priority and most with a 1+ Ev.

They were all distorted and colorized to taste, exaggerating, to get a modern look to them. All work was done in Lightroom.
I hope you enjoyed them as much as I did.

Epcot with a flare


We both love Epcot, not only for the great food but for many photo opportunities. This time, although I did something I’m just beginning to play with, architectural, I did a lot of non-conventional stuff, but that’s where the fun part is, and in my evolution as a photographer, I am more concerned in having fun than in the glory of it 🙂
Here are some examples, with a brief description of what was done or the concept behind.
Have a great day, everyone!

Close up in slow shutter speed to capture the motion of the dance. I didn't go for the face because it would be a distraction.
