Before we get to this week’s galleries, just a reminder that there’s still time to participate in March’s One Photo Focus on March 6, where all participants submit their post-processed version of this image submitted by Loré Dombaj of Snow’s Fissures and Fractures:
Now, on to this week’s ABFriday galleries, with many thanks to all those participating!
My submission: I shot this photo in Dulles International Airport outside of Washington, D.C. on my return trip from Colorado a few days ago. This is the AeroTrain stop in the main terminal. I used my iPhone 6 and edited the image with Lightroom 5 using adjustment brush and radial filter presets, spot removal tool, selective sharpening, and triangle crop overlay.

Nic says: I’m in LA this week and I had the opportunity to go to Manhattan Beach. Along Manhattan Beach is a walkway where you can bring your dog. My dog and I were taking a rest and looking out at the ocean when I started noticing airplanes from LAX in the clouds. I took several photos but I liked the composition of this one with the lamp, unfortunately there isn’t a plane in this photo. So I took a plane from one of the other photos and added it to this one. Now this photo has a plane and a bird. 🙂

Robin says: When I learned on the morning of February 20th that our area had set a new record for its coldest day ever, I thought this would be a good time to go out and take some pictures. So I headed down the road to Great Falls National Park. The “Before” image is the original RAW file with no adjustments. The “After” image was adjusted in Adobe Camera Raw and then a few additional steps were taken in Photoshop. The details can be seen at my post here.

Loré says: I desperately need color, light, softness, something to get me through these cold, rainy days. So, I pulled out this image from last summer and gave it a breath of life. Just to get me through, until spring comes along.

Michelle says: This photo is from Labor Day 2014. I was at a “Balloon Glow” at Callaway Gardens. It is a huge event for photographers. There are so many there for this event it was like a swarm of cameras. I had not really done much night photography so I didn’t even bring my tripod. (I will this year though.) However, I was able to take this basic photo of the balloons across the lake. Unfortunately though, one of the balloons in the center never lit up. So, clearly, this was a problem for me to fix!
Submitted by Emilio Pasquale — Photos by Emilio
Emilio says: This image is part of a series I am doing on the hotels/casinos of Las Vegas. A very simple transformation this week. You can not use a tripod within any of the casinos so this was hand held at a very high ISO. The subsequent digital noise had to be reduced in Lightroom and the clarity suffered. But I still think it came out pretty darn good.

Ben says: This week for the forum I have been playing with macro images and food. Something tastey for the weekend. My post will be live here.
Submitted by Nancy Merrill — nancy merrill photography
Nancy says: For this week, I maxed out the contrast, played around a bit with the tint, and over-saturated the tones. Then I cropped it to make it more of a panoramic.
Submitted by Amy — The World Is a Book
Amy says: The yellow photo is original. I did some work on the LR basic panel. Then, I export it to the Google photo and used the center focus to dark the background and lighten the flower. The center focus on Google allows you to resize the focus and move to the point that you want to focus. I think it works really well for this photo editing.
Submitted by Stacey/Lensaddiction — Learning to See Light
Stacey says: This image is Passage Peak on Hamilton Island in Australia taken at sunrise on a very windy morning. Processed completely with LR5. Images and story here.
