Nice work Wes. Also, incredible quality at 3200! Things have come a long way.

Pico23,
These are gorgeous. Have you been dabbling in HDR?

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 smart of you to keep all those bracketed images. I would never imagined I would have been able to use them for something in the future!

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.

Thank you, thank you. That is my little Ruby. It is nearly impossible to take a bad shot of her.

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



... and the over-excited rainbow lorikeet that tipped me off to its presence.



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).






... and one individual fighting to pick a very unripe jacaranda seed:

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.

Shot this pic of a pocket bike that my son-in-law wanted to post in eBay. Sun is on the right, remote strobe on the left in-line with sun and bike. Triggered by Wein HSH hotshoe adapter on a Canon 430 ez flash.

Saw this at my friend's wine shop and couldn't resist shooting it. I call it The "Art" of Winemaking".
