Keeping up with the Hawaii theme, here's a view from my hotel room from a vacation I took in 2010. Not nearly as good as the Hawaii pictures you guys have posted, more of a casual snapshot.

North Shore, Oahu

You can do it!


Fall Bokeh by DigitAl3x, on Flickr

Wasn't the sharpest (or best composition) I've taken recently, but I like the bug and the bokeh.

Taken w/ Sony a77 + Sony 35mm f/1.8 SAM.

One thing about the Freemasons, they knew how to design and build interesting architecture. This is taken out front of the main lodge in the city.

Thank you. There's a lot we can do, IMO, before we press the shutter... such as limiting the colour palette, letting the light dictate the kind of photographs we take and working with the limitations of our equipment. So PP is just a tweak here and there... rather than damage limitation! As for exposure... I generally take a shot with my chosen values (aperture and shutter speed), and then bracket two more shots: one over, one under, by changing the shutter speed. The best exposure is usually the middle one, but not always... and I'm glad to have a choice when I'm editing pix back home.

Great shot, very appealing... and I like the black & white treatment...

I do a lot of stock photography, and this is the kind of thing that sells (better than pretty landscapes, anyway). I heard on the radio that we still have hundreds of places where pedestrian pathways cross railways, with no 'safety features' except a warning sign. So I set up a shot in time for the next train...

This is Macky Auditorium. It is one of the older buildings on the campus of University of Colorado. It looks really cool at night - tried to capture that here.

I find your reply a little over the top and offensive, IMO. I think you would have been better served by just disagreeing with his opinion and stating that his opinion does not matter to you and leave it at that. There is no need for rude name calling. This needs to remain a civil blog. Art and beauty, in all forms including photography, is in the eye of the beholder and not everything that we post will be liked by all. That's a fact we all need to accept.

I'd say you did a pretty good job capturing what you were after I think a different crop or perhaps different framing would give the photo a bit more character, which can be tough to do with that type of subject.

Yah unfortunately there are two tall post with solar panels on either of the frame. I only have an 18mm lens and with the 1.6x crop factor my camera it doesn't get as wide as I need sometimes. So it was either get a better framing of the building but have the ugly solar panels or move up and get as much of the building as i could. It was mostly just for experimenting with nights shooting so I chose to move up.

Anyways here is a new one for today from the beautiful little Monhegan Island of the coast of Maine.

Here is one looking straight up into the sky on a hill near the visitors center on Mauna Kea.
