Shot of my cat (i hate cats, but not this one) while sitting in bed last week, post ACL reconstruction. One of my first shots with the Pentax K10D.
He was cleaning himself and I knew he'd yawn but it
came a little too soon as the clouds came in and turned
the window light down a few stops before i could up the
iso. ended up shooting at f/2.0 which was much too shallow.



One of my first shots with my Pentax D (the original Pentax DSLR). Actually this was the 9th image i'd shot with the camera. ISO 800 and nice and clean in the highlights shadows

aren't too shabby either.



And the big adventure.

My wife looking very concerned in the family waiting room before we got called back to preop holding. She wasn't concerned about me, just the $31,000 bill she is the guarantor

on...actually our share is a meager $4000.
The best surgeons in the world aren't free.



And the $31,000 knee along with my albatros (aka. the brace)






A panorama of Camden Yards, the ball park that revitalized baseball and ended multipurpose cookie cutter stadiums forever.




Max Sapp doubleing to the gap.



My dog (for climbsomething, cause I know she loves him) climbing what I'd honestly rate about 5.3. Notice the lockoff before the mantle. And you don't get to see the mantle start

to get on the slab which was a work of art. Nice work.



Me being stupid testing out the joints and the custom presurgical ACL brace (another $700). My wife served as my human tripod.
This was the best of about 25 attempts. Don't tell the Doc
I'm an idiot.




Don't worry, stupidity is entirely genetic. My brother lauching down a swollen spring river. I missed the landing but he didn't. BTW, he's living proof they will give anyone a gun and a shield.



Florentino and Buchanan turning two. Nice peak of action shot.



Spike McDougal (the name has pro written all over it) beating the tag by Chris Johnson.



Pickoff was a bit late to nail superman:



Fall in NY:

Platte Clove in the Catskills


Dusk over Mason Lake, just outside the West Canada Lakes (yes, it's in NY) Wilderness.


Panorama of the view from Sugarloaf over the Southern Catskills and the Ashokan Reservoir.



And a few shots of Arlington National Cemetary, former home of one of my historical idols, Robert Lee (nothing to do with slavery or racism so grow up), and current home of some

of our nations greatest heros. The changing of the Honor Guard is something I've loved since childhood. The Honor Guard of the 3rd ID has ceremonially guarded the Tomb of the

Unknowns 24/7/365 for about the last 70 years. Hurricanes, blizzards, 110F heat, they walk the mat. And they do it voluntarily on their free time. Every motion, step, even the

shoulder they carry the rifle on while walking the mat has a symbolic purpose.

I like the hockey shots (though not the teams in 'em). I also think we should veto any more kitty/dog shots. Howvever the canine redpoint free solo of the 5.3 was pretty badass...

Had a chance to shoot the gymnastics with a 1d Mark II, and you have not lived until you shoot at 8.5fps! Now just have to work one of those into the budget...

I just got most of the way through my post here, and Firefox died. Oh well, I'll try again. Non climbing shots are way easier to come by right now... too much snow!!!

Theoretically, you should be able to click on the picture to see the original size.

your golden eagle shot is awesome...very tight and sharp!! Lens and distance info please?

btw, was this a natural shot or in captivity. the background looks clean so matter what it's a nice shot but your so close it would require a super specialized lens to get such a good shot in the wild.

Thanks! The eagle was in captivity, she is a rescued raptor, in the shot you can see her wings aren't exactly even. When I saw her, she was being handled outside her cage and fed a freshly killed prairie dog. They let me get about 10ft away from her. I took all of the shots with my D70, and the eagle shot was: 1/400s at f5.0 using my 70-300mm VR lens at 165mm.

definitely would have been tough to crop in like that in a natural setting with the 70-300 but it looks like it was the perfect lens for the job. good exposure and nice and sharp. really like it. all my eagle shots have been natural and the bird hasn't been far off (in a tree under our boat several times) but I've always been caught with the wrong gear (wide-short tele zooms and a converter in a rocking boat, gear that works best for paddling, not wildlife) while paddling. the results are heavily post scan crops and not so sharp.





fresh prairie dog...yummie!!!

Nice landscapes too. I like the line of small rocks in the 2nd photo that lead your eye into the photo from left to right.

Did you use a polarizer on the first photo?

I believe only one shot I posted was HDR.

Yep, I mess around with it. I usually bracket everything (film, JPEG or raw) so it gives me an option in the end.

HDR is a great tool if used right. I've seen so many bad images and I've seen many good ones. Some people like the extreme end of it, where they get 15 stops of light in an image, I prefer gaining just a few extra stops and still having a natural looking photo.

Thanks for the comments.

Wow, these are great! Are those light sticks that the kayakers had? That's like lightning on the water.

I really like that last picture. Well composed, well lit foreground and of course that lightning with the purple sky! What do the figures in the foreground represent? Did you tweak the overall color?

Thanks!

To answer your questions:

The kayakers were a guided group, and had lights on top of poles sticking up off the back of their boats.

Ih the last picture, I believe the sculptures were erected to celebrate the Sydney 2000 Olympics. The foreground was lit by a street-lamp just to the right of the camera. Overall colour balance is pretty close to what I remember (maybe pushed slightly towards the blue.

One of nature's little melodramas. A carpet python, just trying to sleep off the afternoon heat:

His squawking attracted a number of his companions, who spent a while hopping around and checking it out (from a safe distance, of course!) before taking off in search of new excitement.

A few more freshly-uploaded pics of the local corella flock. These are some of my favourite birds - I could sit and watch them play all day (again).

Jibs22,

Sweet, thats a small world. Those guys are so robotic thats it's funny to think of them as real people.
I love the symbolism of everything involved though.

Yeah, I took those in September so they are definitely recent enough to still be on post.

That's hilarious though, not that someone from somewhere recognized them, but that it was on RC.com on a random thread.




A little boredom set in the other night so a did a little head and shoulders portrait of Yoda testing out my wireless flash using a homemade snoot and diffuser. Yoda is only 2 inches high and this was a 1:2 macro at 300mm.

he was probably almost 6inches long.

i've only seen about two in my life, one on the Caney Creek backpacking trip, and one I don't remember where.

They are rare, or at least so well camoflaouged that they aren't often seen.

What is more rare these days, something I used to see all the time as a kid, are Praying Mantis. I used to keep them as pets. Now I've went maybe 8 years without seeing one. Same with grasshoppers, although I see them frequently, they are not in the same quantity as even 10 years ago.

Balanophyllia elegans, one of the few corals on the California coast. It's a solitary coral that doesn't form reefs. This specimen is about 1/2 inch wide.

This is a beautiful little 1 inch long sea slug from the California coast. It feeds on animals related to sea anemones which have stinging cells for defense. For some reason the stinging cells don't explode when Hermissenda feeds on them. Instead the stinging cells migrate to those colorful plumes which you see on the back of the sea slug. There, the stinging cells become part of Hermissenda's arsenal of defense.

Your science oddity of the day!

A few from my 12 week post op visit to Manhattan. Monday March 5th. Exactly a year after I took a 600ft fall in under 15 seconds.

Not the best weather. Actually typical March in the Northeast.

Rain, snow, sleet, gusty winds, some warm sun, dreary, nice sunset from the express bus, then brutally cold at night. When I got off the train in PoK it was below 0F.

pico23,
Thanks!
I used a Nikonos I with extension tubes on a 35mm lens and a wire frame for focus and composition. I think the magnification was 1:1 or perhaps greater.

The film used was Kodachrome.

It was lit with a handheld Honeywell Stobonar 600 (one of the original potato masher strobes) in a cast aluminum flash housing. The housing was made by the Anchor Shack, which later grew into Oceanic Products.

I'll post another one in a bit which I just recently found in a shoe box (as were these!)

Thanks Paul. My camera is a Panasonic FZ50 and I used a Raynox DCR 150 macro lens with the zoom at the max telephoto setting. The light is a desk lamp nothing special. I found the ladybug at night so I went outside and plucked a leaf off of the tree to give a more "natural environment".

I wrote a 8pg article on it (photos included) that was published in my alpine clubs journal.

Nuts and Bolts of the accident:

really a stupid mistake top of the climb, reached for something blowing away (partners glove) and edged my crampons. tough to self arrest on ice :) even harder intermittently airborne/bouncing and touching down (or as my partner put it on the way out, "you must be tired from the changing so many time zones during your flight"). i had three attempts at arresting and couldn't get the pick to bite at all, just bounced out, tearing some muscles in my sternum from the force. the 40ft vertical onto the 20ft snow pack was the highlight of the flight.

In the end, just a torn ACL to show for it. Repaired now, so with any luck nothing but some time and some medical bills and an renewed appreciation for the fact that mountains don't mess around. They don't know grades or elevations. Gravity is gravity, wind is wind, cold is cold and mistakes can be serious.

Give me a PM and I'll send you the article to your email.

Here's a picture taken with that new lens of yours. I did not take it but I thought you and everyone would appreciate it.

Paul, cool photo for sure, though I have had my 70-200 (non-is) for a couple years now. It is a rad lens, though the 400 2.8L IS is even better. The sharpest lens I have ever used. Amazing, really. Except that it weighs nearly 13 pounds and costs more then all of my other gear, combined...

A few from the ECAC Hockey Tournament in Albany.

#5 ranked Clarkson defeated #18 ranked Quinnapiac for the ECAC title. #14 ranked St Lawrence beat #11 ranked Darthmouth for 3rd place in the tournament.

Good seats but the glass was beat to crap in front of me. Shot with my old SLR (small and easy to sneak in, camera in one pocket, lens in other) and my slower travel tele lens. Mostly ISO 3200 JPEG. Really it did OK but so sluggish compared to the new one.

My dogs are freaks when it comes to playing ball - they will not stop. Ever...







Bored at the crag



Spearhead show in Asheville last week. I love that town, and the show was amazing - perhaps the best live show I have seen.







Mistake or art?

I just got my Canon 24-105 F4 Image Stabilized lens. Here's one of the first shots taken with it. I think this along with my 10-22 mm will be my two climbing lenses. After a 10 year absense I'm ready to start climbing and shooting again!

Hey Guys, those are all some great shots. Im pretty new here (been climbing for about 10 days Wink and I love it) I figured I would add in some of my non climbing photos for you to see.

My backyard / An Old latch
 

A sunset in Virginia


Along a stream up in Maine


Catesby's Trillium in the Smokies


Trout lilt in the Smokies


Thyme-Leaved Bluets (actual flower size - 1/3 inch)


Some Goldenrod
  

An icy cold stream with a few icicles


Sky in my backyard during a fall sunset (No photoshop work done here, strait from camera w/ polarizing filter)


The rest may have some minor color adjustments done in PS, but for the most part they are as shot.

I hope you enjoyed the shots.

Wes,
I love the shot of the dog with that green ball. I can just feel the slime as you pick it up to throw it!

Those concert shots are fine. Did they let you on stage? What kind of ISO and shutter speed did you need to caputure the guitarist mid-flight?

Thanks-Paul

Thanks much, those balls do get a bit slimy for sure. But, they just keep bringing them back. Over and over and over.

Nope not on stage, just bouncing with the hippies in the crowd. ISO 3200, F2.8, Av mode was how my 5D was set up, actual EXIF should be still embedded in the photos. The light was all over the place, so I had a lot of really bad shots as well. And, I just had my 15mm Fisheye, which was too wide, really. Next time going to try to bring something like 16-35 2.8, or even a faster prime. The show was killer, and I can't wait to see them again.

The "mistake or art" shot is actually the best of the bunch. they are all good, just that's the only one that catches the eye as unique.

nice work.

RAWHIDE, you should fade the WM a bit more or make it smaller. It's too visible to the point of you nice work being completely obscured by it.

I put the camera on a tripod and shot remotely for this one. This is from my local action pistol club match from this last weekend. The idea is to shoot and move as quickly as you can and still be relatively accurate. You go too fast and you lose because your accuracy goes to hell, if you go too slow because your trying to be accurate you will also lose! This shooter is doing something which requires a lot of practice to do well and that is move and shoot at the same time!

Photography has turned into a good thing to do when I'm injured. Granted a point-and-shoot with a crappy lens does'nt help much but the lack of hours of painstaking preparation seem to be what really holds back my random forays into the woods. Luckily my memory of these days is still sharp and fresh.

thanks. It is servo focus, but I wish I had zone focus thingy.... That little guy is really fast and sometimes hard to track... Nope, not a filter, it is shot using one of the earliest canon EF lenses, EF 135/2.8, not the fastest af but being a f2.8 lens, 20D can use high precision tracking. Also designed as a portrait lens, it has beautiful bokeh...

More Action Pistol. I'm working on refining my technique for this kind of photography. The camera was fired remotely. This shooter has an "open" gun. He has a red dot sight (not a laser) and a magazine which usually holds anywhere from 27 to 29 rounds. On the front of the gun, either the barrel or slide has slots or holes bored into it which lets the escaping gas be directed upwards to help control recoil.




Scoring is based on speed and accuracy. The little blue box being helf over this shooters head is a timer that counts the shots being fired and assigns a time to each shot. This competitor is moving from one shooting location to another and reloading during the transition to save time. Notice his trigger finger is not inside the trigger guard. This prevents accidental discharges while reloading.

This competor's gun is a "limited" category gun. It is more like a "traditional" gun having fewer modifications than the "Open" category gun.

Let me tell you, Camera gear freaks have nothing over these guys when it comes to equipment knowlege!

All shots were with a point and shoot Kodak Easy Share Z730. The flower was shot with a macro and wide angle lens. The iguanas shot with the same. The rest just standard internal lens.

Some beautiful photos appearing here - a few are simply awe-inspiring.

I'm visiting Sydney for a few weeks, for work - knocked off early and wandered down to Coogee beach, then did the post-processing in a burst of insomnia - it's 1:55am here now. Hope you enjoy! One caveat - these were all processed on a crappy laptop screen, so colour may be a bit out. First three are stitched panoramas.

A line of dinghies along the beach:


Flowers on the cliff edge.


The Coogee Bay Sea Baths


An imposing face in the rock, staring out to sea


A funky sculpture in the park above the sea cliffs


I got lucky with this one. The almost-full moon was rising in exactly the right place to beautifully back-light the sculpture. The streaks in the sky are from planes, but come out looking like meteors, giving a distinctly "other-worldly" appearance to the scene. My favourite, I think.


Edit: Adding captions.

A few from this weekend:

A note on the photos, some have said they seem overly saturated. However, I DID NOT UP THE SATURATION. The colors in all but one photo are accurate (or as accurate as my sensor portrayed them in RAW). The only photo with distinctly boosted saturation is the HDR shot of the D&H building and it mostly affected the blues and greens. If you view enough of these tulip photos you'll notice they all seem to glow with strong backlighting. And while I was going for that effect I did not realize how pronounced it would be till i was viewing them at home.

A lot were taken with a 35mm shift lens which is quickly becoming a favorite lens. I was hoping it wouldn't be a novelty lens when I got it and thus far the more i use it, the more I want to use it.















The HDR Image...I'm not really a fan of HDR because it looks so fake but it can make a higher contrast scene look decent. This was taken around 4pm. I went back the next morning at 5:30am to retake the shot but I haven't looked at those images yet.

Nice - very colourful!

Visited the Sydney Botanic Gardens yesterday evening, and came across the most incredibly tame wild flock of cockatoos I've ever seen, feeding on fallen seeds. Lost a (full) memory card while crawling around on my belly amongst them Frown but gained an amazing experience.





This inquisitive fellow was particularly fascinated with the strange bird behind the glass.

Wow, you look like you were really in there faces with that perspective. thats amazing to get that close to just about any animal.

i really like the sort of out of focus shot where the bird looks like he came up to your lens to have a look inside.

Yeah - mostly they just completely ignored me, except to perhaps hop a few steps out of the way as I crawled through. Most of the pics are from less than 30 cm - I had to clean a streak off my UV filter from the last guy. Beautiful (and intelligent) creatures.

Nice work Wes. Love the wolf shots.

Some from my minor adventure this weekend...my first hike in 6 mos (although I've been mountain biking for about 2 weeks now). my knee is a bit sore but felt good while hiking. realistically, i should be doing hard trails in less then 6 weeks and perhaps climbing by the late summer....yay!!!!

From Saturday:

First time testing the new camera and the 2.8 80-200 together outside the house.

Tracking these fellows isn't easy as they run the course at about 20ft/sec or for American football fans it's about a 6.5sec 40Y. But for perpective imagine at combines the players had to jump hurdles, run through tunnels, climb ladders, ramps, cut tight corners, and weave during that 40, and the 40 lasted about 45 seconds. Basically I'm saying this is faster then any professional human sport and a great way to test out the capabilities of a camera.

A few recent ones from a paddling trip with my Dad.










From my annual birthday trek to beer fest in Montreal with the family:

This one I was ridiculed for the mini tripod but no one complained about the end result.










And a few more from the Albany series:

All three taken with a truly off brand Arax 35mm Tilt and Shift. Honestly one of the best value lenses I have ever owned, and SOOOO much fun to use, and I've only scratched the surface of it.

Here's a pic one of my buddies took of me while I was working. Took a minute to realize it was me.
I had to edit the thing a half dozen times to get
it the right size to post it, but here it is.

Had a day trip out to Niagara Falls the other day. Man that's a lot of water!

Nice work with Niagara from the Canadian side.

I'll be back out there myself in a few days but here are two past shots from 2001ish shot on Provia or Kodak Elite Chrome 100.

Looks like you were there in mid day light which is even more impressive...I will probably also be there fairly early this time which has me worried.

Nice!

... yeah, it was very close to midday, on a bus tour. Just enough time to take a ride on the Maid, run up to Horseshoe falls and snap a few frames, and then it was off again. All handheld, which can be touch-and-go for panoramas, but I'm getting better!

Perhaps one of my favorite grab shots. Taken yesterday while on Noonmark. I was set up for this shot without the bird but just packed up because my DOF wasn't quite what I needed (i was using a ultrapod and needed more height). Anyway, this guy flys in turned the camera back on (Canon G3) which takes 3 seconds and fired away. Unfortunately my settings were not perfect but I still like the shot.





This is the whole range in vertical JPEG. Came out darn well for a handheld using the cameras built in pano mode and lots of care. I also shot quite a few in RAW which might turn out a bit better (more DR). Obviously this was mid day light so I'm not expecting much difference after the RAW conversions.



And if you're interested the big 4000pixel version without border...the original is 16,000 by 2200 pixels

Heh. It would seem so! I particularly like that one since it proves that my hands are getting steadier - the shot was taken handheld at 27mm and no less than 1/2 a second!

Very cute!

I entered these three in a recent photo competition (Better Photography Magazine). Didn't win anything, but I like them anyway.







This last one probably needs a little explaining. It's the new Eleanor Schonell, or "Green" Bridge linking the University of Queensland to the other side of the Brisbane River. The little boat in the bottom corner is the now-redundant Dutton Park Ferry, and just visible under the main span of the bridge is the Dutton Park Cemetery. These kicked off the whole "past to present" theme I tried for here.

Hopefully the above pic will show.

It is a pic I took in a cafe at Cambridge University in pommy land. There is more to this pic than first meets the eye.
