It was another beautiful day for the annual 2014 Chester County Restaurant Festival held in West Chester, PA!
I for one, very much enjoyed having these folks playing in the background!
Update – The wonderful folks over at TheTownDish.com, did a GREAT blog post about the Brandywine Food & Wine Festival!
Images of 2014 Brandywine Food & Wine Festival held at the Myrick Conservation Center in West Chester, Chester County PA.
There was a ton of good food and wine, which was especially welcomed after several previous days of rain!
Folks that live in Chester County, or anywhere hay is harvested, have seen bale after bale just lying in fields.
So on this rainy day, I decided to take a second look at some of my images in my collection…
I am going to have to keep this technique in mind for future use!
If you are interested in how I processed these images, please let me know!

We can’t wait for next year!
I’m a parent with two normal kids…
And things get lost…
“Daddy, I can find my [fill in the blank]?”
A child’s first introduction to “Troubleshooting”…
“Where did you last see it [insert child’s name]?”
Then the search starts…
Earlier this morning, I posted the following…
“Lost a Lens Cap while walking around Stroud Preserve yesterday… If you find it, please let me know! TIA!”
I really did not expect to get a reply, but as luck would have it, within 2 minutes, I get
To which I responded
“58mm… The last I remember seeing it was near (39.947185°, -75.649300°), just before heading into the woods (NE)…”
A few seconds later…
“I found a 77mm at 39.947185°, -75.648300° sorry.”
A minute or so later, this is on my wall…
It does leave one to wonder, what a conversation in the future might be…
“Computer, Where did I leave my [fill in the blank]?”
quickly followed by –
“You left your [fill in the blank] on the table, you silly human…”
Do you really know what the computer is thinking?
FYI – Mine was a Canon…
Some images taken during a recent spring time walk around Stroud Preserve.
All images were shot in ‘traditional’ HDR bracket fashion, and processed into a ‘raw’ combined HDR file.
Normally, I use Adobe Photoshop to do my B&W conversion, but since the Google/Nik Software upgrade, I now had a chance to play with Silver Efex Pro 2.
Photoshop is great for doing a straight conversion via the native B&W menu, but to explore other options, quickly, and then build on them, Silver Efex Pro is the answer.
I still used Photoshop to tweak the final files, but I ended up in a different place than I originally envisioned.
So, what do you think?
