Default Chicago, Quick trip

Here are couple of shots with my wife's point and shoot, think it is almost time to retire it with the epl-1 in the stable now.

I'd have to agree about retiring the old P&S...the images look soft on my monitor. Let's see some images with that epl-1.

I've enjoyed my many vists to Chicago and the equally many photo opportunties. I think my best were of the skyline taken from a boat tour that took us out to Lake Michigan. #1 really shows off the height of the Willis Tower!

yea, i would say its high time to retire that p&s too, its quite soft.

brings back memories, lived in chicago for about 9 months 5 years ago, the water pumping plant is always a nice place to shoot as is navy pier.

btw, not sure where i am screwing up, but this is way softer looking after resizing than the original. Its also a HDR modified shot (no clue what I am doing)

You want to get the upload file under 200k, so you will want to make a cop 900x600, then hdr, sharpen and enhance. Not a hdr guy. So I would not know which ord the hdr should be at.

I love Chicago. Visited several times and your shots make me want to go back. I remember going to the top of the Hancock Building (1st photo) one evening. There were very low clouds over the city and the top of the building was above the clouds. Would have made a really cool picture had I carried a camera with me.

Shoturtle: i'm willing to like your shots but they look soft and somewhat out of focus. May be the p&p... i don't know.

Ordo it is the camera, I am right now researching for a replacement to my 8 year old stylus. It has seen much better days. It also has allot of uses so it is slowing getting worse.
