Dawson Lumber Mill

This was on the way from the Finley Wildlife Reserve to Alsea Falls (where we got drenched). For fun, I decided to apply onOne's Holga preset in PhotoTools. This concludes the series. (That sky portends the steady rain we experienced at Alsea Falls. See January 16.)

Great color and a little bit of history. What a wonderful combination. I did get a chuckle that there is actually a Holga preset out there. I love the camera but had no idea they took it a step further.

@Stinkbug Photography: With Holga cameras being popular, you just knew there would be presets.

I like the focus point and the processing work! I like the pine covered trees in the distance and the lumber mill details are spectacular!

I think the effect is particularly successful! One feels an urge to do away with the rain and go very quickly! A beautiful movement speed!

You happily combine a panoramic vision and the movement effect Jack, it adds a lot of dynamism to your shot.

Freezing the motion ... from a vehicle, I guess! A perfect image of everything that you leave behind. Well explained the passage of time. An instant that flew! Great message and very expressive! A big hug today why is Sunday, accompanied by many kisses dear friend Jack! and thanks!

It's fun to play with softwares. Holga effect on this pic is successful.

Good Holga effect Jack, in fact it probably looks better than the one in Nik Silver Efex, which I find is far too heavy.

Don Wiley from spokane, United States

I like the special effect applied to this image. Nice feeling of action in this shot. I can almost hear the pitter patter of the rain drops. Nicely done!

The Holga effect works wonderful for this image. Very nice composition. I love the scene with the hills in the background.
A beautiful part of the country you live in, rain or shine, it's magnificent.

Special effect. As a result, I like the focus on the mill.

I just checked further about Finley Wildlife Reserve, such an interesting place to discover and capture wildlife. They even have a photographer's blind you can reserve.

31 Jan 2010 3:11pm

@Barbara: The trail to the blind was incredibly muddy that Friday; so we skipped it. Besides, you need a reservation in winter; guess they don't want the trail all torn up.

@Susan: It's interesting how you got drawn to onOne because of FocalPoint but have ended up becoming a devotee of PhotoTools.

I like that kiss of motion in this. Funny you mention the Holga preset, I just got a Holga 120N, but I think your way is easier and more immediate ;)

The treatment gives a feeling of a picture taken from a moving car. A wood factory isn't it?
