Last night I happened to have my camera with me because I was shooting pics for a Hoyo review when I drove by the WWI memorial here in KC and snapped this real quick.

Worth the wait.....Should have manually focused the late sunset. The camera struggles a
bit under low light conditions to focus. But I am supposed to be the master of it, not the
other way around, lol. Second shot was one of the first I whot whil waiting hours for the
sunset, haha. Kinda "day for night". In the right corner, the "Memphis Queen"...Twain rolls
over in his grave over this boat.

Default Re: Photography Thread

This stems from a friend of mine, used to work together in TV production and we are still both in town, both having
moved on from TV stations proper. This is his photostream, and it is excellent.

http://www.flickr.com/photos/3096310...th/5360680841/

Now while I am not trying to copy his work per se, this photo and the post-processing is an homage to his work.
If you look at all his photos, a photo very much like this is in there, his is better than mine, but I was only trying
to duplicate the STYLE of his 3 bridges photo. Here is HIS photo by the way.....

http://www.flickr.com/photos/3096310...n/photostream/

He and I both have the career-type knowledge of photoshop, but he has always been better at actual graphic design
than me. So I look at his work and try to apply what I like to my own work. Most of what I have posted in this thread
is getting used to the camera and it's strengths and weaknesses. What I post from here on out will be more artistic
than straight photos, mostly because my super-zoom does not have the dynamic range or image quality of a good DSLR.

All that drivel said, thanks spectrr, can't believe you're missing the shack.

Brad, is that a 5 1/4 or a 8 inch floppy?

BTW, I love it. Especially "Backup" being written on it.

It was one of the smaller ones, but nonetheless, a REAL floppy. I'd say half of the people that post
here never even saw one before, lol. When I shot it I was just shooting an old style disc in the street.
When I got home and looked at the shot and saw "Backup" on it I bout lost it. I also notice it says CC, haha.
