Yorba Linda, CA – Yorba Regional Park (Infrared-HDR)

Yorba Regional Park IR_Talke
Recently I did a quick Grad session at Yorba Regional Park. Before the session I grabbed a couple Infrared shots of the lake at the park. I loved this view and thought shooting this one in HDR would bring some textures out on the tree. Infrared rocks!

Corona Del Mar, CA (HDR) & Instagram

Corona Del Mar Volleyball_Talke
From a visit one day to Corona Del Mar Beach in Orange County….a lovely sunset at the Volleyball Court. If you are on Instagram….you can find me at “Peter Talke”….I always put my posts here on Instagram as well….as well as IPhone shots. When I do…my fav filter is XPro II. For some reason it makes pics look cool!! Adds a vignette & some toning that I enjoy. I set out to find if there were any actions for Photoshop? I did find one…but it needed a little extra to get that look….tweaked a tad! Here is my Photoshop Instagram Version.

Yorba Linda, CA – Black Gold Golf Club (HDR)

Black&Gold_Talke
We had an amazing week of sunsets here in SoCal this past week. We don’t get a ton each year…but when we do, they are spectacular! Days like this I wish I lived at the beach…but we live 30 minutes inland. A storm was due in the next day and I knew we had one more sweet sunset coming our way! I took the few minute drive over the the golf course and set up and waited. I don’t play a lot of golf, but enjoy the beauty of courses. The building in the back is the clubhouse. The sun was setting and created a sweet orange glow! Enjoy the view!

Yorba Linda, CA – Nixon Library Fountain (HDR)

Nixon Fountain HDR SW_talke
From my hometown of Yorba Linda, CA…this is the fountain located at the Nixon Library. This past week we have been having some amazing sunsets in SoCal. I have been busy and missed many, but earlier in the day I could tell we were going to have another good one and took the quick drive to the fountain to grab a few shots! Enjoy!

I had a little fun with an HDR I took of the Oakley Headquarters in Foothill Ranch. Looks like a spaceship cruising in the clouds. Have fun with your photos and sometimes think outside the box! =)

Or how about an Oakley Robot…with a little Cylon eye.
