    Ditto. For some reason, the added verticality (is that a word?) adds another dimension to the pic that I find also adds interest.

    Either way - interesting / excellent compositions.
    All the best,

    Played around with the Canon 28-135 again today. Ended up with these:





    The creek is high from all the rain we've had this past week.
    Where do we go when we just don't know,
    And how do we relight the flame when it's cold?
    Why do we dream when our thoughts mean nothing,
    And when will we learn to control?

    ahh cool, I see someone has been playing with their tripod
    Love the effect of the longer exposure on the flowing water, gives it more of a sense of motion.

    nicely done crissy

    I just acquired a Pentax-A 50mm f/1.7 lens. All exposure modes are supported on my Pentax DSLR as well as matrix metering and P-TTL flash. Everything except auto-focus. Although I would have liked a f/1.4 I decided paying at any where from $60 to $400 more for 1/2 a stop of speed wasn't worth it. If I needed 1/2 a stop more just change the ISO. It's not like the film era where I would have to push/pull the processing to manipulate the ISO.

    Just a walk around the block for some quick snaps (uncropped, no post processing unless noted):
    Slightly out of focus


    I tweaked the levels slightly to reduce the minor blowout in the background

    Shot in shade, you can see the tongue doing the Chuck Jones road runner thing.:


    It's nice to be able to shoot at ISO 100. I miss Kodachrome 25.

    Edit: some quick and dirt post processing, cropping, white balance, levels

    Really like the in-flight pics.

    Is that definitely the tongue in the H-bird pic? Given the time of year, it seems that it could be nest-building material ...

    Yeah, could be nesting material too. Hard to see what was going on through the viewfinder. It was feeding from the flower in the foreground when I first came upon it, then to flowers in the background (not visible).

    Beautiful pictures!

    I haven't been up to much photography for a little while because of exams, but here is one I snapped of my friend's cat. The iso was very high (I think 3200) and I dodged a lot of shadows under his eyes and such. I also cropped it, sharpened it a very small amount, and increased the exposure a touch!
