Got bored and re-worked this one. I don't usually stretch out to the creative side much, but this shot looked so plain SOOC that I had to try something.
What do you think? :dunno:

got bored and took a few pictures of my car today while shooting guns. still just messin with my camera takin pics. these are unedited.




This was taken the other night. My tripod broke and im not stoked on the photo all that much. I only got 3 shots and this one came out the best but im pissed, its at ISO 800 so its way too grainy!



Heres the only way that a Steel Reserve beer should be used. This is with a .308 and i think 1/800 shutter speed.

Kind of hard to take pictures of the planets. You have a link to some more info in this?

I'd like to see your pics, but cant. Time to leave photobucket buddy. Go to flickr so I can see your photos without the "Bandwidth Exceeded" sign instead.

You can always see Venus with the naked eye, just look for the brightest star, that's it. Sometimes you can see Venus + Mars. Once in a while you can see Venus, Mars, Jupiter & the Moon all at the same time.  :greengrin:

Kyle my eyes are torn between the surfer and the dark area of the wave to the left.  I love the color of the water though.



On a side note, my mom has been wanting me to figure out what camera my wife wants for Christmas.  Well, here is the camera she has now, and it has been a damn good camera.  Rolled over 40-50,000 pictures with it.  Talk about a work horse.  http://www.nikon.com/about/news/2004/0916_05.htm  But it is showing it's age, and it's on it's last leg.

And here is the camera I feel is a killer replacement.  Nikon has stepped up their game on this point and shoot.  It's nice Nikon has finally decided to follow Canon by putting in a RAW mode in a point and shoot.  I'm really impressed with the stats this camera has, including manual features.
http://www.imaging-resource.com/PRODS/P7000/P7000A.HTM
So, my mom is gonna check into it.  :crossed:  My wife deserves it.  Since there is no way we could afford this camera at this moment.
Miss ya Dean (4THEWKN) & Kyle (KYOTA)!!

4THEWKN~9/17/2006  If it wasn't for you, I'd be driving something other than a Toyota!

Hit SHARE THIS then GRAB THE HTML/BBC CODE then change from MEDIUM to LARGE then click on BBC CODE and copy and paste the code.

Like the car pics, last one is a little dark, try using evaluative metering because of the bright reflection. Also, align your camera height the same as your mirror, you will get the least perspective distortion that way.

Thanks! I was doing it pretty stupid and figured it was wrong.

Ill go take some more pics tomorrow night of it at the same spot. I got the same cheap tripod you did so it should be all good this time.

That's the best thing you can do. Hard to use a tool when you don't know what it can do. :thumbs:

Yeah, it's hard to get.
I used a 300mm Macro and that is a crop! I think you would need a 1200mm on a crop body camera to get the moon to fill the frame. The problem is that the moon moves so fast you have to re-adjust every time you shoot.

You know me Kyle, I'm not big on the re-work.  I like it when there is some subtle re-work.  But beauty is in the eye of the beholder.
