This was one of my shots for the Bay Area Photo Club of Clear Lake October Honor's Night assignment of "HANDS". It's a composite of two images that I combined in Photoshop. The base image is a shot of my hands that I warped slightly using a Topaz Lens Effects filter preset for a fish eye lens effect and then added the colors in Topaz Adjust 5/Stylized/Solarized Dreams preset. The second image was a shot of the full moon with some fog effect added from Topaz Lens Effects. The judges awarded the image a Silver award and 153 points, which was the second highest score for the night.
I spotted this old Ford pickup truck in a field in Round Top Texas while shopping at an antique mart on the last day of the fall antique weekend. I don't normally use in-camera filters but I did use the Olympus "Sepia" art filter on my OMD EM-1 for this shot and liked the results.
I work in the industrial distribution sector as a salesman for a master distributor of valves and fittings in Houston, TX. I am a member of the Bay Area Photo Club which meets at the Art Alliance Center at Clear Lake in Clear Lake Texas on Tuesday nights. I shoot with an Olympus E-3 and my favorite lens in my Zuiko 12-60.
