Fantastic scenes with fantastic lighting. You captured them well.

It being a small world and all,your photosreminded me of a a time in my childhood when I lived in Lake of the Woods for about a year. I went to school with one of the Cuddys. Spud was his nickname. Can you imagine?? somehow went right along with his best friend's nickname, Bucky (His sister called him Buckshot when she was mad at him). Anyway years later I ran into one of my friends from there and found out that sadly Spuddy's life was cut short. Died when he was in high school. Shot by another friend playing "Chicken" with a shotgun. Spuddy didn't flinch. Your #3 photo is really fitting of that memory of hearing the news.

Thanks for sharing.

I know this photo has some significant faults - I blew the highlight/sky on the right. I did take another version, but didn't like it as well - the right was still blown out and the colors looked dull. This is my husband's favorite picture of all of the ones I took that morning, so I'm including it here, even with its faults.

K100D and the DA 50-200 lens.

I like them all particularly this one (2nd one on power lines) as I am working on something very close. I have not been too happy with the lighting in all scenes I took.
Keep posting. Thanks for sharing.

Bev - it really is a small world! I knew that you lived in the same mountain range as I do, but didn't realize you had lived only about 2 miles away at one time. Your area isn't all that much different than ours - though you do have a lake (for everyone else who's never heard of this little corner of SoCal, Lake of the Woods has no lake).

Thanks for everyone giving me their favorites out of these - it helps to know what I did right. All of you are helping me become better at my favorite hobby.

Very nice pictures! I like the third one, but the others as good as well!

Like looking to a complete different surrounding.

Harriet, I understand why you find it hard to exclude one. After looking over and over again I finally pick # 1, 2, 3 and 5 as my special favourite picture. As easy as that! With these you've achieved that backlight magic you said earlyer that you're never successful with. Masterpieces!

Harriet ... I really like the "mood" you've captured in them all. Great work.

Cheers, Mike

I'm liking Darling Ave the best and the first one next.

Those are some great shots that really show emotion when you look at them.

Been up the Grape Vine many times, but never stopped to look around, was always in too much of a hurry.
