Placing the car in the photo gives us a perspective on the size of the trees (classic). I went through there last Oct and it was spectacular.

I've been through there a few times and always try to get something in the shot for perspective. I think it has always been my vehicle or me.

This time I did time lapses driving through the forest. That has an interesting effect. Used my iPod touch with my own software.

When ever I drive up or down California, I consider shifting my drive through there because of how spectacular it is. :)

Thanks :)

It was an interesting experiment. I was out with a friend in Panama City Beach, FL when I noticed it was going to be a spectacular sunset. She stayed at the bar while I ran to the water. I setup the tripod and framed the shot. The end result is a three frame HDR so I had to hold still through them all. I just moved my left arm enough to aim the remote at the camera. The camera was setup to do the bracketing with a 2 second shutter delay. That allowed me to keep the hand with the remote out of the picture on each exposure.

Thanks for the explanation. I wouldn't have guessed that it's an HDR. It's nice and subtle.

Yes, very colorful and well seen. I might consider a crop at top, bottom, and right to trim out the less interesting areas and get us in closer to the row of spoons(?) and top blue glove. Nice one.

Lovely colors, light, and combination of textures. I think I'd like to see more of where the water curves around the top--perhaps that would make the point jutting out more of a focal point. The colors in that rock are just wonderful.

This was a reference shot I took on a day when I planned to do some shooting at this location in the evening. I had a long-exposure sunset shot in mind, but due to one of the craziest situations I've ever experienced, that evening shoot never happened. We were staying in one of these huts because the owner (who is an acquaintance) kindly let us use it for a long weekend. It was a little one-room hut with an outhouse and an outdoor shower. So we're not talking about a big place here. We had a couple of nice days using it as a base for hiking until this last day, when the owner decided to invite a bunch of friends over for a BBQ--while we were still there! :confused: Needless to say, that made things...err...crowded to say the least. We came back from a very long and strenuous hike, very much in need of changing clothes and showering, but the hut was full of strangers. So we packed up and left, scratching our heads at the owner who was assuring us that we were still welcome to stay the next two nights as planned. Bizarre!

Thanks, Rowbear. Sometimes my attempts just result in a mess of tangled lines that look like a mess. Using a tripod in this case helped significantly.

This kind of light - from below - is usually found in horror films, but somehow it flatters this kid's young features rather than making them scary. The skin-tones almost look like CGI, with reds reflected from the clothing, and wide eyes with catch-lights. I'd be tempted to crop heavily from bottom and right, to focus in on his expression...

Some of the water the East Coast got last weekend going over the Great Falls in Paterson . People in the area upstream and ( I think) downstream are still flooded .

Your right, I knew there was a connection between those two bridges somehow but I had forgotten the same guy designed them. It was just completely painted, which the picture doesn't really show ha.

I would like to see a before picture of the falls!

Very nice colors. It looks like a burning flame. If I may suggest something, it would be to crop out the top left green part that draws the eye a bit, but otherwise, its a lovely and realy sharp image.

I just Google'd Great Falls Paterson - and to my amazement, it's in NJ. Jokes about that state aside, I wasn't aware it possessed features like that.

On Wikipedia I found this picture - I'm not a photo person - but part of me feels this could have been beautiful with less post-processing.

Also, for those that have been there in person - is that a house at the top of the falls???

p.s. Sorry for derailing - I will drop a picture from today in here, once I take one... ;)

Last weekend while shooting pictures in NYC leading up to and through Hurricane Irene, we were returning towards the end of the day with Irene fast approaching and the subway lines about to be closed. In the subway we came upon this movie poster and thought of doing a long exposure to create a ghost image. After taking this picture a transit cop came by and was nice enough not to give us grief about using a tripod w/o a permit and to warn us that the gates were about to be closed and the last train was due in any second. Needless to say we grabbed our equipment and hauled A and got on the train just in time. I had no chance to look at the picture until afterwards. Here is my hurried result.

This kind of light - from below - is usually found in horror films, but somehow it flatters this kid's young features rather than making them scary. The skin-tones almost look like CGI, with reds reflected from the clothing, and wide eyes with catch-lights. I'd be tempted to crop heavily from bottom and right, to focus in on his expression...

Thanks for the comments, Doylem. As far as the crop goes, as a stand-alone image your suggestion would probably be effective because it's not easy to tell what's going on around him. But as part of this series, I like how what I have shows him with the crowd and gives it some context.

Otter, very nice photo I love the colors and the way the heads of the ladies in the background are all lined up with the main, in focus subject. Did you select the shutter speed priority because it gave you the f 4 setting and therefore created the bokeh effect? Just curious for my own education how you set up this shot.

fcortese: To a certain extent I was just lucky with the background blur. There was a lot of movement in the parade and in order to make sure I had sharp subjects I set the shutter priority to 1/250th. It was a slightly overcast, not very bright day so I knew I wouldn't have to worry about getting small apertures with a large depth of field anyway.

We've been hit wit a series of forest fires which is a very common thing out here although less so this summer. They have come last this year due in part to a wet spring and early summer. However, with the fires comes some great sunsets, with the sun often red in color. This was from last night, about 500 yds from my backyard. It was taken w/o any filter just a straight hand-held shot.

Nice colors. Too bad the source is a wildfire. Stuff in the air can have a global effect. The 1884 eruption of Krakatoa colored sunsets like this world-wide.

The wildfire season has come late this year and that isn't good. A lot of the people who fight these fires are college students who are gone from the bases now. I visited the North Cascades Smokejumpers Base in Winthrop Washington at this time of year in '08 and half the jumpers were back in school leaving only the hard core professionals.

On the subject of wildfires, this year was the 10th anniversary of the Thirtymile Fire in the Chewuch River Canyon North of Winthrop in which four young firefighters lost their lives. There is a memorial at the fire site and it is covered with trinkets and pieces of gear left there by others who have visited to pay tribute.

Mine for today. At the Thirtymile Fire Memorial in 2008.

Amazing picture, which fish eye?

It is a Pro-Optic 8mm fisheye (Nikon mount). It is really a Samyang but is also branded as Rokinon, Bower and I think Vivitar.

At the Moriones Festival in Marinduque, Philippines, most of the costumes of Roman Gladiators are store-bought, and most a variation on a similar theme. A few Filipinos hand make their costumes, some quite elaborately using some really creative materials.

I just Google'd Great Falls Paterson - and to my amazement, it's in NJ. Jokes about that state aside, I wasn't aware it possessed features like that.

On Wikipedia I found this picture - I'm not a photo person - but part of me feels this could have been beautiful with less post-processing.

Also, for those that have been there in person - is that a house at the top of the falls???

p.s. Sorry for derailing - I will drop a picture from today in here, once I take one... ;)

Yeah ,it's a house ... actually a whole neighborhood ... the falls are in the middle of the city . They're the reason for Paterson's existance , being the source of power for the 19th century industry that developed there .Pretty much the whole city was water powered in the early 1800's . The raceways and a lot of the old mill buildings are still there . Slowly they're getting restored. There's some neat urban photography opportunities around the raceways. Anyway , one from near that house you see in the picture..

This was a reference shot I took on a day when I planned to do some shooting at this location in the evening. I had a long-exposure sunset shot in mind, but due to one of the craziest situations I've ever experienced, that evening shoot never happened. We were staying in one of these huts because the owner (who is an acquaintance) kindly let us use it for a long weekend. It was a little one-room hut with an outhouse and an outdoor shower. So we're not talking about a big place here. We had a couple of nice days using it as a base for hiking until this last day, when the owner decided to invite a bunch of friends over for a BBQ--while we were still there! :confused: Needless to say, that made things...err...crowded to say the least. We came back from a very long and strenuous hike, very much in need of changing clothes and showering, but the hut was full of strangers. So we packed up and left, scratching our heads at the owner who was assuring us that we were still welcome to stay the next two nights as planned. Bizarre!

Love the pic and the story, to bad you were not able to capture the long-exposure sunset shot .............now if you were in your early 20's possible you'd stay and party with a bunch of strangers...those "huts" look very peaceful for rest though

This is the last one I'll post of the Moriones Festival in the Philippines, although it's actually the first of another series that I posted on my blog. Early one morning during the Morinones Festival, a number of men gather at the local cemetery to perform flagellants as a way to pay penance. Although not overly graphic, the pictures do show a fair bit of blood, which may disturb viewers of a sensitive disposition. If you'd like, you can see the rest of the pictures and read a bit more about it at my blog by clicking on the photo.

Vermeer lives...

Wow! They set up this scene in a museum?! I must go there! Would love to hear more about it. Terrific photo.

Thanks for the comments.
It is a pure lucky shot, the scene was there and the light was inviting to make the shot.
The atmosphere also made me think of Vermeer but as said, this was not intentional.
I tried a few other shots but as often is the case in such situations, the first one is the best.
Den Gamle By is an open air museum in the suburbs of Århus with old houses from all over Denmark. As on several locations in Europe it's a collection of houses that were rebuilt after they had to make place for new buildings on their original location.

Also in Århus is the Aros museum. On the roof I was impressed by the rainbow panorama.

The B17, my most favourite of aeroplanes. Looks like a 'G' to me. I just wish it was a bit bigger, but there are probably all sorts of restrictions around airspace and such that prevent things like that.

I looked it up. DragonCon is/was a big comic/sifi convention. The parade was just what you see on the inside of these things but out on the street. These people love to play dress-up.

She's in a steampunk themed outfit, so there's not specific time in history. Steampunk is usually focused around the late 1800's to early 1900's, though.

Dale has it right. Dragon*Con is an annual comic/fantasy/scifi convention every Labor Day weekend. Saturday morning of that weekend is the parade of costumes and vehicles. There's quite a wide variety of themes and outfits, and I'm trying to show off that variety in the photos I share here. The parade is quite popular, too. The sidewalks are pretty crowded for the 1/2 mile or so the parade routes through downtown Atlanta. I have actually been to the con several times in the past, but for some reason I was always busy the Saturday mornings of the parade. This year I was not attending the con itself, and I was able to go to the parade and take these photos.

I have almost 150 photos I uploaded from the parade that I'm picking from to share. If you want to see them all, they're available at this link.

Was this taken handheld or tripod on the bridge?
Somehow it seems just slightly soft, if focus then some portion still would be sharp, bridge vibration possibly?

Thanks for the kind words (and a thanks to everyone for the replies to my other photos posted previously in this thread).

I was thinking about leading lines when I shot it. I also took a generic postcard photo from the same spot only including the Bay Bridge, but I thought the posted photo was a bit more interesting.

Taken handheld with a rangefinder camera and 35mm lens.

Both the foreground and background are actually sharp in the master, even when examined with a loupe. Any perceived softness is coming from the smaller file size of the web image or Aperture's conversion to a smaller file size. The focal point was the man in the foreground, but the aperture was small enough for the focal length of the lens that the Bay Bridge was also sharp.

Shooting with a rangefinder camera has been extremely helpful to me in learning photography. The biggest help has been in composition: since the viewfinder includes more of the scene that what the sensor sees, it is like shooting with a cropping tool active. It's easy to see what will be included and excluded in the final image.

Being forced to shoot in manual mode has also been helpful. This applies to both exposure (though aperture-priority is still an option) and more specifically to focus. I'm using the depth-of-field indicators on my lens for the first time, something I never did with my DSLR. It's made me really think about the applied physics of optics involved in shooting.

Wish someone would make an affordable digital rangefinder. Would be a great learning tool.

Here is a thumbnail of the postcard shot:

Yes, after I got home I realized this. As a matter of fact we had started walking from this site and I looked in camera again and said to my wife that I needed to go back and re-shoot the scene with manual focus readjusted. She was not in favor of doing that at the moment so I deferred to her wishes. I was hoping it would come out OK when I uploaded it to my computer (wishful thinking!) I'll try to go back there tonight or tomorrow and try again.

I went out to re-shoot a picture I submitted yesterday to try to get the focus right (see thumbnail below). On the way home I walked past this tree and saw that the season change is already upon us out here in the Mountain West! Boy, what a short summer we just had. Temps at night are in the low 40's with a reading of 38 (degrees F for those on the metric system) two night ago.

This is way cool, catching low lying fog is hard. Good capture.

Thanks!

On Monday I went walking in Billings and found these glasses sitting on the edge of a 50' drop near the airport. There is a big rock to the right making this ledge about 8" deep. I had to lean over the rock with my left foot on the edge of the drop-off to stabilize me.

I missed the sunset I was chasing due to some thick clouds rolling in. :mad:

I was going to post this in the "Full Moon Fever" Thread, but since it doesn't actually feature the moon. I thought here was more appropriate.

This evening around 10pm BST I was lucky enough to witness a fairly rare phenomenon. A Moonbow or Lunar Rainbow. It normally happens when the moon is at its fullest, the sky is dark and there is rain falling opposite.

I have only ever seen it once before. This time I had my camera with me. The shot is a 10 second exposure with the camera leaning on a fence post. It was taken in Northumberland, England. You can see the lights of the village of Milfield in the distance.

(The steel piece was center structural member from the Sky Lobby (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sky_lobby) floor either floor 44 or 78, they could not be exactly sure, nor which tower it came from.)

I spoke with him afterward, he served in Vietnam and attends these Ceremony's and funerals/etc with his fellow vets. Told me how when he got out of service how he hid his uniform, it was the early 70's.
I shook his hand, looked him in the eye and thanked him for protecting my freedom, and my kids.

Today was the first day of pre-school for my granddaughter. She was soooo excited and couldn't wait. I'd like to take credit for this picture, but I can't. My daughter took it. I like the motion implied in this photo and the framing. She caught her mid-stride, got a shadow effect, and I love the bus door wide open with the driver looking at her waiting to greet her. Of course, I'm prejudiced on both accounts!!:D

Reef: Thanks for the comment. I think B&W is the best choice also.

Mine. The main trailhead entrance for day hikes at Paradise on Mt. Rainier. I think it's Skyline Trail.
