Gone to See the World. Semester at Sea Spring 2016 Voyage on the MV World Odyssey. Day 86: Depart Tema, Ghana.
This was our last day in Ghana. Prior to departing the ships chef and cooks created an artistic display of carved fruits and vegetables. Rooky mistake on the images, I had the ISO cranked up to 6400 from my early morning Sunrise Breakfast Club photoshoot. As a result, the aperture was nearly wide open with a shutter speed of 1/4000 second. Significant noise reduction via Nik Define, and tonal adjustments via Nik Color Efex.
German Chocolate, Strawberries, and Hot Peppers. The Strawberries were grown in my indoor AeroGarden hydroponic farm. Also the flowers (Dianthus, Snapdragon, Coreopsis, Zinnia) are growing in the hydroponic farm. The Red Poppy flower didn’t quite open in time.

Gone to see Europe. Semester at Sea. Fall 2012 Semester Voyage on the MV Explorer. Day 22: Field Trip to Brugge, Belgium.
Street Photograph of Bicycles in Motion in Bruges. There are lots of bicycle riders in Belgium. My goal was to photograph them with the bicycle and rider in focus with the background in motion to give the viewer the impression that the bicycle was moving. You need to focus on the rider and keep moving the camera to keep the subject centered for a long exposure (~ 1/15 sec). In normal daylight even at f/16 the image is overexposed. You can use a filter. On this day the sky was cloudy, and I could just get away with a 1/15 second exposure. I think I had a 1 in 10 success rate for the day to get these 5 images.
