StPetePier Lightning by WatchTower513
StPetePier Lightning
This was taken last year in St. Petersburg at Demens Landing Park. I was taking photos of the pier hoping to get a shot that stood out. As time went on a storm began to build so I tried adding lightning to the photo. I took over 170 shots and managed to get a few strikes but nothing outstanding. Taking two of the best photos, one with a sail boat and the other with a lightning bolt and merged in Photoshop CC, I added an extra layer to paint over the lightning bolt making it stand out more. After that I did some dodge and burning in Lightroom to help make the photo pop.

ISS and Orion by WatchTower513
ISS and Orion
I took this outside my house 0n 10/3/14 at 6:25 am. This is a composite of two photos taken within minutes of each other The line going down the center is the International space station which was taken at an exposure time of 2 minutes. Only problem was the rest of the stars were also moving and had an almost blurred effect so I combined it with one I took a few minutes earlier to make sure I was in focus.

It's been awhile since I last had any real photos to put up. This past week I finally got some shots I was looking for and will hopefully get more soon. For the next week or two I will be posting photos of lightning that I've taken. Let me know what you think.
Also about time to make more wands for this Halloween. I will start posting pics of their progress as soon as I start.

Thank you for checking out my page. I’m an amateur photographer with hopes of expanding my hobby into a small business, possibly portrait work.   I've been doing this as a hobby for about 6 years now taking pictures whenever I had a chance.  My main subjects were Space Shuttle launches,  air shows, anything nature related, friends and family outings. .  Lighthouses are one of my favorite photo subjects, as is wildlife. Favorite spot for photo opportunities  is Chesnut Park and Key Vista. 

   I've done a few jobs now, 2 weddings, and have a few more lined up. I'm also learning all I can and working hard to expand my portfolio. I see the works of other photographer on this site and it just shows I need to work harder to get that much better. 

I also enjoy drawing, and working with Photoshop. My art pad of choice is my iPad.

If you Faved one of my pics, Thank you very much!
