contrast masking

i recently read an article called understanding contrast masking from the luminous landscape. if you haven't been there it's one of the best sites on the web for explaining digital photography and image processing techniques.

anyway, i dug out an image from our recent trip to mexico and decided to give it a try. the results could clearly be better with a little tweaking, but i love this trick already.

it's may and to me that means one thing: asparagus! well maybe not just that but i can't wait for the price to start coming down as the crop comes in.

if you're in the northwest and you want to know what's in season check out puget sound fresh. puget sound fresh is a program run by king county to promote locally grown foods. they have a calendar that shows what's in season so you know what to look for when you're at the market.

the list of produce fresh locally in may includes: artichokes, chinese vegetables, greens, lettuce, potatoes, radishes, spinach, chives, rhubarb

buy local produce!
