    Love it. Very reminiscent of the 1930s. I wish all urban graffiti were as artistic as the face on the wall. And remember: "There's no other store like David Jones!"

    I could tell you but I wouldn't want you to get all pissy if it's the wrong brand

    Lukas,

    You really have to love the late or early day light in Bryce with a bit of snow. When I was last there in 2006 it was overwhelming. Glowing orange or white formations in every direction. I think I would need a few months in the park to really learn how to work with the complex scenes. I find it a lot like photographing a forest; overwhelming details that your brain processes well in live viewing, but hard to translate to a printed image.

    I was just going through shots back to the beginning of this thread. The difference in content, methodology, and quality is astounding.

    I wonder where some of the frequent posters from those by-gone days went. Maybe, like me, they took a break to concentrate on living for a couple of years. Would be nice to see some of them return.

    Lukas. Found one of your seascapes from a couple of years ago with a lightning strike on the left side. Very nice.

    If you have the time it's worth a cruise down memory lane.

    Ha! See, I can change...

    I didn't find it as difficult as forests, but it certainly takes some effort to cutout the distractions. Snow and red rocks is always a great combo.

    Yeah I remember that one! I was a lot less snobbish back then. I'm much more selective about what I photograph and post now.

    I aspire to be like that. So far, no luck.

    Ditto... and it sometimes shows. I think most of my photography tends to be more journal than artform, but I try to combine the two where possible.

    I find it hard to be selective when I go someplace new. That is one of the benefits of revisiting a place, even one near home, you have probably tested shots that you know did not work. Or you are waiting for the right light or season. Wildlife sessions are hard since every one is slightly different. Then it is a lot of post session culling.

    Yup. Most places warrant a revisit or two. Although I like some of the "first time" shots as they have a discovery quality. Typically the shots that I print are shots that needed additional attention like cropping, which is now a reality with the D7000. I hate to say it, but there is no substitute for megapixels when cropping.

    I'm just starting to get into more wildlife shots, which are extremely time consuming. Little buggers rarely strike a pose, so you have to wait for a fly-by, or find a good roosting area. I practice on seagulls as most times you can get within 2 feet, or closer if you have food. Maybe I'll post a few, down the road, on the bird thread.

    Another non-selective one from almost a year ago. This particular example would really have benefited from being taken with a better camera (but my new good camera doesn't have a strong telephoto lens of this caliber).
