There is no challenge topic for "No Host, Just Post" challenges. They are an opportunity, sort of like Free Sundays, to show favorites, post something you might be working on or just some of your recent works. When there are openings in the calendar the dates are left open for this activity. Lesley and I will be checking in, but neither of us may be commenting as much as if we were the host. Commenting is optional for participants too.

So, what have you been working on? All 4 of my editing programs have recently updated and I am trying to learn some of the new features. ON1 program has a new feature I'm trying to perfect - sky swap. The intelligent software pretty accurately identifies the sky and masks it out. There are numerous skies from which to choose depending on what suits your image and various sliders and adjustments to make it look natural. Here is one example.
The original - rather plain, nothing spectacular

Thanks AJ - I've been amazed at what it can do and it's relatively easy - more to come over the next few days.

That is a pretty trippy transformation!

I am digitizing my collection of film negatives from the 1960s, '70s, and later. These are a few of many casual senior portraits I made for friends and their parents.

Good for you. ON1 takes a bit to get used to, but I find it much more user friendly than PS. A very interesting memorial. Made from pieces of the site?

I sky swapped another. One effect is the option for "reflection". I used that feature here to lightly reflect the sunrise colors on the lighthouse.

Usually sunrise at this light is dramatic and casts a colored glow.

You truly bonded well with all your subjects... so critical in portraiture reportage...

BTW: Loved shooting BIF with Manual focus glass... there is a special magic latent in the aforementioned.

Street (Editorial) reportage...
Venue: Hagerstown, Maryland circa 1980

Film: TriX ASA 400 shot at ISO 400
Developer: D76 1:1
Illumination: Heavy Overcast

Thank you for sharing Bill Burkholder...
All the best on your epic journey
