Took this one on Friday morning. Well worth it. Surprised how well it turned out on my 40D at ISO 3200.

My usual method - go to the right place at the right time and wait to see what happens - didn’t work for me yesterday (though I’m always amazed just how often it does). I stood on a hill, lined up the shot of a small lakeland town, with lake in front and mountains behind. I knew the sun would light up the houses, and give good side-lighting on some of the peaks. But as soon as I’d set up my tripod, the clouds kinda joined together into one big cloud, and, though I waited an hour, the sun never showed again. But it wasn’t a waste of time: I have a better idea about how to get the shot next time, and I had an hour watching clouds.

On the way home I shot a petrol station with a bit of light in the sky, which will go to Alamy, and maybe make a sale or two (“sunset for the oil industry”?)...

Your photos are amazing and your skill to capture certain landscapes is top notch. I'm envious of your work.

Sauted broccoli florets, then stir-fried in sliced beef rounds, and made a sauce up out of oyster sauce, mandarin sauce, honey and sesame oil. All tossed up with some starch to thicken up the sauce ... it was amazing.

I should show you these too:

Some quick honey (pecan) shrimp, and shrimp and asparagus fried rice. amazing! Sometimes the best meal is one you make yourself.

Another gorgeous interpretation in your signature style. You're inspiring me to try some long exposures at the water's edge, since I've got plenty of Pacific nearby. You create an almost imaginary world with the way you capture the water and turn it into atmosphere... really like the b/w treatment.

We had some snow (in Texas, 12+ inches!), and this little Cardinal was in my back yard.. He flew off after this first shot.

It's overall a decent image, and I like the composition. It appears to be processed as an HDR, am I right? The things that somehow catch my eye are that the building on the right appears to be leaning over toward the center and the left side of the market building seems to lean even more the further back in the frame you look. And a fair amount of purple color in the branches, I'm not sure if it's purple fringing, post-processing, or just from the pinkish/purplish color in the wispy clouds behind the tree, but it seems a bit unnatural. Also, I'm detecting a bit of haloing around the tower/building edges. I realize that with a wide-angle lens the "leaning" distortion is tough to avoid if you have to point the lens even slightly up to take in the view, and sometimes it's perfectly fine in a shot, but somehow it distracts me here.

So, for me--lots of things right, but just a couple of distractions.

Keep 'em coming.

This building was originally the pump house on some rich guy's estate back in the early 1900's . The property is now a park and whenever I get up there I always seem to take a picture of it . Anyway , Sunday was a pretty gray day, and the image didn't have much color to start with,so I thought I'd turn the shot into a monochrome image. Upped the exposure by .5 stops and used the Alien Skin Exposure sepia Daugerrotype plugin to get the toning.

I'm trying out some HDR shots as the overcast weather is making all my shots pretty dull. However, I think this one turned out alright!

I just found a huge set of these taken last year in my friends huge barn/garage. His dad is a professional photographer and has a lighting rig in this barn/garage place! I was also lucky enough to use his 5DMKI and L lens. These were some of the first photos i ever took I didn't even have my own camera at this point! No PP other than the b&w. Feedback appreciated.

I really like this. I think the light on the right is a little hot, maybe could have been moved further away from the wall (if it was intentional), but I love the feeling of the photo.

Here's one of mine:

I've downloaded the Aperture 3 trial and had some time to play with it today to see how far I can push/pull images (it's a holiday in Ontario). This is a re-process of a field I shot last summer. While it is over the top on saturation, I'm impressed how far it can be pushed before clipping occurs. The final image is closer to the perceived brilliance and saturation of the observed scene.
