Despite being sick with a nasty cold, I went for a short photo walk downtown Bellingham on Saturday. I used my Hoya multi-coated cir-polarizing filter since it was such a bright, sunny day. I’ve used the filter before, but I was especially impressed with the shots I got this weekend. I’m convinced the upload to WordPress degrades the photo quality a little, but prior to upload the contrast and color saturation on these photos was so good that they didn’t require any editing. These are straight from the camera! Without the filter, these would have been really washed out under the rare afternoon Washington sunshine.
*Okay, straight from the camera is technically a lie. I edited out some wires (I hate wires!!!) and a partial view of a sculputre at the museum. But, the color etc. is unedited.
