I took this picture in front of Macy's and blended it into a faux water color effect.
The skating rink in front of Macy's.
Again, the skating rink. These shots were handheld since I could not set my tripod due to the amount of folks running around but I think they turned out pretty good.
Shot of Union Square from a high vantage point.
A wider shot of the square. By this time, the light had begun to change.
The big Christmas tree on the square. Note that missing patch? That wasn't me, I actually think they missed that patch of bulbs :).
Off for some photo shop fun. I added an oil painted effect to the picture I took.
Tried out a faux HDR effect on the picture. Not bad.
Time delay, 30s, with a tripod and 100 ISO.
Street Performer at the Powell BART station.
He had a dog.. who was actually a prop. I personally think that folks were more into the dog than his playing :).
