(Please note that tendril's cool pics are a continuation of the "Post your pics" thread. You can find the first part here. --mod.)

 

Been going nuts with this camera, I'm in love. I'm up to 1550 pictures, although many of those are bracket shots to ensure at least one proper exposure.

 

Here's a sample of some new ones:

Man, these pictures are awesome. I've become a (very) amatuer photographer since I got a digital camera, but have really only taken pictures of my son. Photoshop is awesome for messing with black/white color contrasts and making certain things pop out...family pictures can make great gifts and people really think they took a lot of time and care.

 

Keep 'em coming, guys!

Nice work, guys! Ed - do you have any of those pattern ones in desktop format again? :)

 

Josh, sorry I never responded to this, I didn't see it. Since the time you posted, I opened an account on Flickr and upload all my images there. I upload very large source images that are suitable for desktops. My profile is here, and you can find the high-res shots by clicking on a given image, and then click the "all sizes" button above the larger view. Hope that makes sense.

Nice Ryan! Did you crop it' date=' or does it take wide shots like that?

[/quote']Thanks, that one was a crop to get rid of a huge bush in the foreground, but it does have a 1920x1080 mode as well.

 

I really like your building photos and the close up colorful/grungy ones as well, keep it up! :)

 

Also, what's that statue in Brian's first picture? It's like a creepy Andy Griffith is coming after you.

That's a statue of Gandhi behind the ferry building.

That's my last picture, tendril. I really wasn't expecting a statue of Ghandi, had to take a photo of it. The statue in the first picture is behind the Metreon in Yerba Beuna Gardens, I think it's called "Trembling Man", presumably earthquake related.

 

Like your photos of that skyscraper, it's a very distinctive building with those ripples.

Heh, I wish I was good enough with a camera to do multiple exposure trickery. I'm a point & shoot guy. That statue would look way cooler if taken by someone who has a clue at the right time of day.

 

Have you tried the HDR features of Photoshop CS2? I understand that some newer cameras have HDR features built-in, but for the rest of us mortals, there's Photoshop.

 

Basically, take a couple shots at different settings and then merge them with the Photoshop tools.

 

Type "HDR" into flickr to see some examples like these:

 

Decatur street sign against evening sky

 

County Road 13 sunset

 

I'll give it a shot as soon as I get my camera back (loaned out right now).

Finally upgraded my camera as a graduation present from myself, to myself. It's a Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ5 (I think someone else here has one?), took my first few photos with it yesterday.

 

Ryan, great pic...where was it taken? It looks a lot like a the Bluegrass region of Kentucky...

Great pics Gunner!

Yep, you nailed it. I'm pretty lucky in that where I live is basically surrounded by horse farms, so I can just walk out my front door and take pictures like this:
