Boardwalk Fun! Apps: ClassicPAN: Iris: AutoPainter ll: LensLight

Last night I decided to visit the boardwalk in Ocean City as it was my last night at the beach and I wanted to make a few more iPhone shots at the Amusement area. I loved the bumper cars as a kid so I sought out the area where the very same ones still run and made the opening shot.

 The Jolly Roger Carousel and the wonderful old carousel in the Kiddie part of the amusement area also called me back to make some more images. The older carousel is a real gem! It is from the Herschell Spillman company which operated in the late 1800's and early 1900's. The images below are from that carousel. I added some touches of the LensLight app incorporating some light effects such as sparkles and round highlights.  I wish I could get inside the safety railings to get a few more full length shots.

 And then I had to try and get some more Fun House Mirror shots. It is fun to watch the kids as they play in front of these.

The balloon dart game is a also fun: Here I added some LensLight Sparkle after processing the image in Autopainter ll.

It was a little slow at the Atlantic Stand and I love the old fashioned counter stools with one missing so I made a couple shots there.

And at the end of the beach day, colorful towels can be seen draping railings of many of the old beach houses. Its been a good week and I hope to return in July!

  1. I'm quite impressed with the colors you've been creating with this Classic series, so much so that I stole some of your technique in my blog. Thank you.
