Isolated Photos from Original Pictures

This photo (ABOVE) of four Canada Geese flying over the tree-tops offered a chance to create several other pictures simply by working out some blowup isolations.

In the first picture (BELOW) the two middle geese are isolated to create a new photo via blowup. The blowup clearly allows one to observe the top goose’s feet, which have yet to be tucked in during the beginning of his flight.

A blowup of the lower three geese follows (BELOW):

(BELOW) is the final blowup created from the lowest bird in the original shot of four Canada Geese.

Graduated Blowups

graduating-blowups-same-picture-003

In amateur photography, a lot of fun can be had in simply blowing up photos in  graduating sizes. It can be an educational process, as well. Sometimes when focus on a subject seems certain, one can learn from a blowup that he wasn’t quite as focused in for his shot as he thought. Blowups can teach one something, after all.

The first picture in this post of a Canada Goose was isolated from the original picture of two birds (BELOW) and blown up to feature him alone.

And (BELOW) are two other blowups in graduated sizes also made from the original picture.

In digital photography, one may easily recognize that focus must be absolute to ensure a focused blowup. As demonstrated in these particular blowups, although the first picture of the two birds together looks quite focused, there is considerable pixel loss in the graduating blowups, causing a loss of focus that at first seemed certain.

A correctly focused example follows (BELOW):

The original photo was taken right through the railing of the bridge, while the camera was focused correctly on the geese. The railing faded out and the geese stayed in focus as the camera followed them. Therefore, the two graduated blowups are perfectly in focus on the geese, as well.

Geese Gathering

Last evening, my geese gaggle decided to invade the low-lying yards along the Maumee River’s shoreline just SouthWest of the bridge. They climbed up the rocky embankment, using their wings as balancing tools, then gathered in the delicacies offered within the groomed and grassy, golden yards.

Just an embankment between him and Kingship!

Then there was this fellow (series of seven pictures above) who kept approaching the embankment but was unable to find his climbing courage. Finally, cleverly, he found a much less steep slope to negotiate.
