Here is a last minute post on the last day. P.F. Chang in downtown Boise. Boise loves new resteraunts and over the last couple of years we have gotten our share of new ones. I love the horse statues outside of this one.

And the whole resteraunt, not too exciting, but again I love the horses.

Nice images, Debbie. Certainly not your every day Chinese restaurant.

Very nice. We have Chang's Mongolian Grill here in Portland. I wonder if there is any relation.

Did you use a polarizing filter in the first shot to darken the sky? That's what it looks like.

Cal, Not sure if they are related? Is the Mongolian Grill the one where you make your own and then they cook it? My mom loves that place. Every time I visit here there in Beaverton we have to eat there.

No filter used. I do need to go invest in some filters it sounds like. What is more useful, a polorizing or ND filter?

Debbie

Regarding Changs, you're spot on, Debbie. I've been to the one in Beaverton many times. There is another (perhaps two) in east Portland.

For filters, I recommend a polarizer, two neutral density filters (nd2 & nd4), and graduated or split nd filter. I am assuming you already have uv filters on all of your lenses. If not, do that first. They don't do a lot for your pictures but they are cheap protection for the front of the lens. Regarding the nd filters, a nd2 filter reduces light by one f-stop, and a nd4 by two f-stops. The nd filters are available in gray or several colors for special effects.
