    @Greg- Thank you. It was really funny watching the ducks walk and fall down on the ice. We've made several Jesus-duck jokes about that pic at our house.

    That kind of cold is unsual for Rome indeed.
    Pics like the ones I took where on the first pages of all the newspaper last December

    @waltonsare I love the photo of the leaf in the water!

    @barton beautiful!

    Here are some I took the other day. They're unedited (with the exception of the bottom photo, which my boyfriend edited for me), though the top 3 I don't think really need it. I love the construction photo because of the way the sunlight is shining through it, although it didn't come out quite as kick as as I think it could have (though this one I think can definitely be enhanced with some editing).

    This one one very San Diego to me.

    This one looks like a life version of a Bob Ross painting to me.

    San Diego skyline.

    Boat Silhouette. My favorite part about this photo is the silhouette of the boat, but my Edgar says he thinks the highlight is really the texture of the ocean.

    @oldhat-That last one is awesome!

    Yay photography thread!
    There are always so many wonderful things here.

    This is a photo of the wonderful and gorgeous dancer Rhonda Clark, who the enormously lovely Saint Katelan Foisy introduced me to when I was last in Paris.
    It will be on display at the international video dance festival in Burgandy this spring so hooray for that! I know it would be a small thing to many more accomplished people here, but I'm very pleased and completely delighted to be included.


    So far this year is crazy busy but full of so many joyous things too.
    I can't wait until I'm able to show you more of the things I've been making.

    Oldhat - very nice, I love the photo of the vines most of all

    I scanned some old negatives the other day.

    I coloured this B & W in Photoshop

    This is an old local band from the early 80's. They played at our high school. Check out the leg warmers.

    Wow. Such great pictures!

    @ Barton - thanks fella!
    @ Old hat - Wow. Wonderful use of focus. Great Bokeh!
    @ V. Stunning. Did you help the vignette in photoshop?

    Here's some more. General question. What's the best size to post on this? I'm going on the biggest with Filckr but feel smaller may be better.

    @Yoav: I tend to use 'medium' or 'large'.

    Here's something to melt the icy cold, for those who have it:

    • CommentTimeFeb 3rd 2011
    @Yoav Thanks! And I usually use medium or large.

    Quick question for you folks:

    I've decided to upgrade from my Nikon D50 to the Nikon D90. Much of a big step?
    • CommentTimeFeb 3rd 2011
    @oldhat: Not having handled a D50, i really can't really offer a reasonable comparison. I do know that the D90 will let you take ISO up to 3600 or so, does sensor cleaning, has better D-Lighting, bigger LCD screen and supposedly does better autofocusing? I've also been pretty happy with my D90, though i must remember to take it in to be serviced for a faulty viewfinder display before my 1yr runs out (it still takes great photos without it, but i'd rather have the camera run at 100%). Ultimately, i think it depends on what your needs and habits are, both from a technological and compositional standpoint.

    Yoav - wonderful shot of those old typewriters. Wonder how many words they've written. Very nice.

    @FC Well, already what you mentioned is pretty much what I need in a camera! haha. Plus I'd be able to control my flash (an SB600) wirelessly. Thanks!

    From an SLR standpoint, I'm pretty excited. In the spring I'll be getting myself some 120 film and taking the family's Hasselblad 500C out for a spin. Got some great advice from a friend to bring my DSLR along to act as a light meter. So we'll see what it brings forth!
