Ain't life great? I'm eating watermelon I just took out of my fridge (1/3 a large watermelon for 40 cents) and drinking cold beer (5.4 liter = 1.4 gallon for $2.48) after a hot day in China. Then I teach my movie class, where we are watching "Shrek." Only problem is I don't have a camera, because mine is in a Chinese repair shop and who knows when I'll get it back.
shot while waiting for the BBQ to heat up, late supper

I can only assume it was some kind of haze, it was getting down to 0 degrees when I shot ???
And/or cuz it's overexposed

Been a bit quiet lately here so just thought I'd kick things off again. Here's a shot at Ilam in Derbyshire on a nice morning with my circ polariser. Cropped slightly to remove vignetting from adding the polariser on top of the normal filter. Seems to have lost a bit of sharpness in shrinking to post. Looks a bit jaggy edged too. Hmm original looked fine.
Around every picture there's a corner & round every corner there's a picture

I like the greens and the scene.
I'd love to take some new shots but my camera is still in a Chinese repair shop (starting to wonder if that is permanent).
One of the most recent ones, when my camera was f/5.6 and 1/500s manual focus only.

nice shot raven although i think if you focussed on the bud in the foreground it would have been more effective.

In my opinion, being unable to set the aperture to anything but f/5.6 made it not quite work, the building is too out of focus.

And another, with the same crop as the first.

Oy that kinda sucks... hopefully you can get that fixed soon. Seriously - Hexanon lens. Damned fun thing to carry around (and pretty close to unbreakable).

With a little PS work, okay maybe a lot, you could probably put the sharper buds in front of the better blurred house.

Brilliant! Why didn't I think of that? (probably because I hate PP, but I had a little extra time today while looking for new jobs)
