Another photo from my visit to Granada last week. The Alhambra provides a stunning backdrop to this tranquil composition of the garden of the Mezquita next to the busy Mirador de San Nocolas in the Albaicin.

Granada – Looking towards the Plaza Nueva from the Acera del Darro

Granada street scene

Most of my photos are posted in the blog http://countryhouseinspain.wordpress.com and you can see a report and straight photos of my visit there a few days ago on the link above. I digitally enhanced this street scene on photoshop. I think it is quite an interesting composition and effect.

Ulli Butz with his Indalinas

The German metal sculptor, Ulli Butz, was at the monthly street craft market in Las Negras this morning. Ulli likes to create individual pieces but his trademark over the last few years has been his metal sunflowers. Today he revealed a “new line”. This is a female version of the symbol of Almeria – Indalo Man – “Indalina”.

Here I have played with the images in HDR toning on photoshop. In this feature I have used saturation and vibrance to boost colour, gamma to take out shadow and contrast and increased the detail and strength.

Trading in Las Negras 2

The Trader

The Trader

The same stall I photographed yesterday but this photo was taken today. It is such a colourful subject it was worth another look and I managed to capture the trader giving thanks just after he had served a customer. I improved the image in photoshop with the camera raw filter and then created the effect with HDR toning.

Trading in Las Negras on Good Friday

Trading in Las Negras on Good Friday

It is Semana Santa and today, Good Friday, the village of Las Negras was crowded with visitors first enjoying the beaches  and walks. Then from lunchtime the bars and restaurants were extremely busy but there were also artisans with stalls along the seafront selling their arts and crafts. I particularly liked this colourful stall.

Wild Flowers in the Rambla

The wild flowers in the ramblas of Las Negras are at their best now. I have tried to capture the bursts of colour they create on the verges. This photo was taken yesterday afternoon. I have digitally altered it to create the effect I was looking.
