although I like it a touch better cropped just below the shoulder instead of just above
Thanks! I'm trying to work hard on composition and the placement of objects in the frame. Is it the curve of the shoulders that doesn't work for you?

Yeah. Just as my eyes start to follow the curve of the shoulders there's an abrupt halt to the image. It makes it feel a bit cut off to me, though not in any dramatic sense.

Great, thank you. I still have a lot of problems deciding where to make a crop.

Man you have a cramped space to work with ,but obviously you have found a way to maximze it!

Here's a shot of Doug Robinson of "Moving Over Stone" fame. This 2 part video series was one of the early, very successful videos about rock climbing movement.

Doug was one of a bunch of climbing luminaries at the 50th anniversary celebration of the first ascent of El Capitan last November.

I left my Nikon at home when we went canal boating in Burgundy and took my new Panasonic Lumix LZ7 point and shoot. Man I love this little camera.







The second last one was taken at the base of Le Saussois. I took my shoes so we spent the day bouldering on classic French limestone; the rope and gear unfortunately stayed home with the Nikon...sigh.

rockforlife,
To me the first thing my eye is attracted to is the diagonal log, but there doesn't seem to be anything special about it. It also acts as a visual brake, dividing the frame into a top half and a bottom half, keeping my eye from running through the photo from bottom to top or top to bottom.

I like the grass you used for the foreground, it adds depth to the photo and pushes my eye upwards. I also think you did a nice job of capturing the combination of golds and greens, in this peaceful scene.

TheHawk,
Nice couple of sets. What treatment did you use on the wildflower, electrical towers?
Thanks

I used this really terrible photo editing software, before i got photoshop. i used some kinda fire filter or something. and then increased the blacks and the shadows to get the black vignette. Other than that, i would have no idea how to reproduce it on photoshop, and to be honest that one was pure luck that it came out so good, i was just messing around.

Really like the muscisians and that abstract light shot.

I got inspired to try something different today.

The Time Keeper

D3, ISO 200, 110mm, 1/250, f22
Three flashes. Mixed Nikon CLS and PocketWizard triggers. Camera is set for tungsten white balance. Clock flash has a double dose of CTO gels to make it orange. Backlight flashes left at daylight balance to make them blue.

Thanks Hawk.

Warm sun on a winter's day.

Used cloudy white balance to warm the picture up a bit.

paul,

way too much good stuff. I like the Doug Robinson black and white, and the clock shot quite a bit.

actually this last page is pretty good all around from everyone involved.

well, I'll try to sneak a few in...

These first few are from August. Yeah, I just got to them recently. Really some decent stuff for a day that was largely spent hiking. We covered about 14 miles and 10,000 feet. I carried my carbon tripod, the 21mm DA, the 35mm DA, and a 55-300mm. Nice light kit.















This is from Beale St in Memphis over New Years weekend (more shots eventually to follow, perhaps by next January)...

Pentax K20D, ISO 800, 1/8th second hand held, f/4, DA 21mm Limited.





This is from Thanksgiving. Obviously it was run through the post processing washing machine since the base image was cute, but not what I wanted.

the base image was a K10D, and a 43mm Limited at f/2.8, bounce flash.





By the way, have I mentioned recently how much I hate the way rockclimbing.com resamples the images, EVEN when they are only 500px wide to begin with.

Thanks Pico,
I like the atmosperics and the composition of your Catskills Mountain shot a lot.

Also it looks like the Memphis shot looks very clean at ISO 800, want to see more of those.

Could you divulge your secret for processing the Thanksgiving shot? I really like that look.
Thanks!

Wow lots of good stuff being posted over the past couple weeks. It's inspiring me to get out and shoot more instead of climbing so much ;) I've been wanting to go out and get more shots of Los Angeles at night so that's going to be my next project when I can make some time.

Great shots everyone, I'm loving them!

A project of mine, on a long list, is Albany at night. My goal is parking top views of the city (and anything else that gets me broad scenes).

Unfortunately downtown Albany is largely 2 things at night, a place you don't want to be, and a place that goes home.

The capital area is fine for walking around, so is pearle st, but beyond that it's not a place to get intimate shooting up close scenes.

So that was where my Albany From Up High idea came into play...but like I said, it's on a long list of to-dos. Now that I have a real panoramic head, I should be able to do some interesting single and multiple row panoramics. Of course all this means I need to get out on the street/parking garages and shoot!

That's what I love about photography, no shortage of subjects or projects to get bored with.

A few more:

Adirondack Balloon Fest 2008. K10D and a Sigma 10-20mm @ 20mm.




Adirondack BBQ Festival:

Pentax K20D, and Pentax DA 35mm Limited

Still trying to decide if I like this one or not. Just playing on the see-saw in the park. Braced the camera by hand on the handle at my end, set the shutter to a longish exposure, and started firing away while moving the see-saw. Obviously my bracing could have been a little better (perhaps if I feel enthused I'll make up a jig to attach the camera properly) but I still think it works, in an abstract sort of way.

I'm not sure that it will be a horribly efficient effect if you have to drag the see-saw with you every time you want to use it.

I love the pose. I think you should repeat it, but use a bit of flash at the beginning to freeze a little bit of the action in the middle.

I tried a couple of shots with flash, but my subjects started to get a little fidgety... I need to play with that approach a little more to get it right.

Pico, that balloon shot is wonderful. Great timing and expression.

Blodgecko I agree about the flash. Using it will up your percentage of useable shots plus still give you motion blur. I like your picture because most of the picture is blurry but the baby's eyes are relatively sharp and caught my eye immediately!

Here's a shot of my neighbor, who put up with me while I tried out an Octabox. The Octabox is basically an umbrella with diffusion material on the front. The inside is coated with a very shiny aluminum coating. The whole effect is to have a light that is soft but still hard enough to be punchy, and directional.

Good Neighbor Joe
