NightPhotographer

Junko and I did a quick trip down to the harbor where I'd done the pano a few days ago, to do more panos. More to come with mine, but looking out to the lake with my back to the city skyline, I was struck by this lone (crazy) photographer standing on the ice, one slip away from falling with his camera into the lake! I hope he got a great set of shots for braving that! Junko and I were on the stairs leading down, using the railing to brace ourselves and staying away from the sheet of ice below. The snow did sparkle, but I added the starbursts where the twinkles were and at the lighthouse, using a Topaz plug-in.

excellent, like this very much

magical - that is a splendid curve, I can see why you wanted to accentuate it with the starbursts
posted January 3rd, 2018  
Crikey, he was taking a helluva risk out there. This is a fabulous photo, the added starbursts give the image a lot of zing and a rather mysterious feeling. I like it very much.

So cool ....wonderful image and processing. Your very talented, Taffy! Fav.

ThIs is so clever!!!!!!!!!!! and so well done!!!
posted January 3rd, 2018  
woooo! i wouldn't subject my camera to that risk, once you fall in, it will be a miracle if you get out of it alive. but then it gave you a fabulous photograph, didn't it? aces!

This has quite a surreal look - the photographer could easily be on the edge of the moon looking out! Love it!
posted January 3rd, 2018  
How clever!
posted January 3rd, 2018  
Crazy indeed. I love the curve and the starbursts.

Great silhouette. Love the star burst.
posted January 4th, 2018  
All I saw when I came to photo were these amazing starbursts. I did not notice the photographer till I started reading what you wrote. What a wonderful photo. So cool in B&W, Taffy. FAV
posted January 4th, 2018  
He is definitely not the brightest starburst on the ice! Fun processing.
posted January 4th, 2018  
Great capture of the photographer on the ice. Very interesting use of topaz
to create the star bursts
posted January 4th, 2018  
Awesome picture.
posted January 4th, 2018  
Wow...Excellent capture...super perspective, composition
posted January 4th, 2018  
The starbursts make it look quite magical. I think it would be interesting to see his photos.
posted January 4th, 2018  
super composition and capture of the photographer
posted January 4th, 2018  
A stunning capture and image. There seem to be a few crazy photographers out there! Fav
posted January 4th, 2018  
Wow, you've created an amazing image. I hope the lone photographer was ok though - sounds and looks a bit risky.
posted January 4th, 2018  
Fabulous shot!
posted January 4th, 2018  
What a beautiful image! I love what you have done with the starbursts! Is this a new Topaz plug in? I donโ€™t think I can do that! That photographer must be mad to take such a risk! Stupid to take such chances for a photo! Fav for this gorgeous image!
posted January 4th, 2018  
A magical image, love it :)

Lovely shot and edit
posted January 4th, 2018  
Faved - I'd fave it more than once, if I could. Love that curved shoreline, and the sparkles are just the right touch.
posted January 4th, 2018  
He's certainly braver than me! Great image.
posted January 4th, 2018  
A fav. Your album is always a pleasure to look at.

Great processing and addition of the starbusts. Fantastic night shot too. I can understand his excitement - this happens to me when i'm out trying to capture a giant wave
posted January 4th, 2018  
Crazy man.... I wonder what he would think of your 'seeing to'. I love it.
posted January 4th, 2018  
A super capture and great processing. Fav!! ๐Ÿ˜€

Very well chosen - most unusual
posted January 4th, 2018  
So much fun! Fav!
posted January 4th, 2018  
Super shot. Best to respect the ice.
posted January 4th, 2018  
@pamknowler It's not a new plug-in, but was part of a package I had bought last year. The starbursts can be pretty ridiculous, but sometimes they do add to the scene. They are fun to work with.
posted January 5th, 2018  
You are very brave, at night, when this cold. The reward is this beautiful shot.
posted January 6th, 2018  
Such starry fun -- I'd bet that photographer would be happy to have this featured image of him/her!
posted January 7th, 2018  
OMG, that photographer looks nuts! Still, you got a lovely night capture... it feels as cold as a moon-scape. The sparkles are fun and add a nice touch.
