    Also, it's great to see you back Phrasikleia! I was sad when you left, having you back just seems right.

    Mind sharing the exif for this/these shots? Im particularly interested in focal length, aperture, shutter speed, and time of day. I have to shoot a cityscape for a class assignment, and it just so happens i live in Vegas. Thank you. :)

    Canon Digital Rebel XTi

    iso 125

    Kind of bugs me that the center of the flower isnt really in focus, but its still a pretty cool picture.

    Yeah I was there in January. I wanted to ask permission to do some photos on the property after the Sun went down. I drove down to the Colorado River and watched the sunset. Unfortunately by the time I got back everything was closed up. I'll definitely be going back - both to take those night shots I want and to drive some of the trails in the area.

    What is this photography class you keep mentioning? Who is offering it?

    ^ This shot just floored me the first time I saw it. I swore the sky was on fire. This shows why ancient people worshiped the sun.

    Mine for today. Playing with my new lens.

    Okay guys, this is my absolute ever first post with my new DSLR. It was just a little rose bush outside. Sorry the flowers were so pitiful. It's all I could find to take a photo of at the moment. I am still adjusting to the camera, but I really like the control. I am trying not to rely on the auto settings, but my own tweaking and experimenting. I didn't use a tripod for this one, we were just walking around town my wife and I.

    Canon Rebel XS
    Shutter Speed: 1/512 second
    Aperture: F/5.6
    Focal Length: 55 mm
    ISO Speed: 100

    Sure, its a panorama from 11 shots. Only post done was cropping and cloning out some power lines. I'll give you the EXIF for the shot that comprises the middle of the panorama.

    The shots were taken a few minutes after midnight. Focal length: 18mm; Aperture: f/3.5; Shutter speed: 1.8"; ISO 100

    Its not perfectly sharp because I didn't have my tripod, so I set the camera on a concrete wall and pointed the lens up by resting it on my finger:p

    Hope this helps, good luck with the assignment.

    Yah it is! So many settings! hahah Every few hours I am finding out something new about dslr cameras. I still want a point and shoot again someday. I had to sell mine to pay for a bit of this but it was worth it. The depth of field you can get is just amazing. I'm having quite a bit of fun !

    Old school...

    This isn't a great photo, and the light was really contrasty, but I wanted to show this old fishing vessel, emphasizing it's wooden construction. I'll probably go back in better light when I have more time, and get some cool detail shots of it... if it's still in port.

    I wish I had time to comment on some of the really interesting images up so far this month, and to thank those who commented on some of my earlier postings, but I'm late hitting the road to Portland, so I'll just mention a few folks... Dale, and Phrasiklea and others... thank you. Also, Phrasiklea, VirtualRain, and NeGRit0... nice work with the light. That's clearly where the art of this medium has its heart, and you're tapping into that. I'll be back to comment on some other great images when I get home... :) cheers.

    ^^ The crop on the top is a bit tight and there is too much area below the subject, but this is over the top with creativity. Would make a cool desktop.

    ^^ It's one of the few purchases I have made that exceeds the hype. It's so sharp that it will force you to raise the bar on your photography. It's impossible to blame the equipment any more.

    ^^ Do you know anything about the background of this ship? A friend of mine had a wooden pleasure boat from the '40s. It was very interesting to say the least. Cruising Puget Sound with all it's deadheads and tugs towing miles of logs I came close to sinking it. Haven't had the helm of anything since...

    ^^ Great photo. This one really conveys the compressed space of Asian streets. Almost no English is the signs. Where was this taken?

    Thanks to all for a great start to July.

    Dale

    What a great start to the PotD thread for July. It appears that Flickr changed how they handle pictures, will have to try to figure it out, so I will just upload mine for today.

    Pan seared beef filet, bacon and cheddar potatoes, sauteed mushrooms and Sauce Bordelaise.

    EXIF Summary: 1/6s f/8.0 ISO200 66mm (35mm eq:99mm)

    Phrasikleia, welcome back. I really liked your picture to start the thread.

    Designer Dale, please tell us more about your new lens! I want to get a macro lens, and I need to do more research on them.

    Chef Jay

    Jumping on to the city hall train. Here's the Beverly Hills City Hall. Who knew my California City Halls Flickr set would come in handy some day(http://www.flickr.com/photos/dailymatador/sets/72157608190098341/).:D
