Very nice photos.

Those two "Dark Sunrise" photos are the most impressive in what's already an impressive collection. Did you use exposure compensation or any sort of filter or did you use Photoshop after the fact? Please reveal all your secrets. (No, not those secrets. :!: )

I would also be interested in how you set exposure on those shots. I tend to end up with heavy contrast in those situations and always wonder what the tricks are.

Thanks!

Thanks Phil and Barbara, and Barbara those Dark Sunrise pictures are just like they came out of the camera, just reduced 50% and compressed some, I did use a filter but it was the internal ND filter that Canon puts in the G5 I have. And most of the exif data is listed with the pics right under the name of the pic, or click where it says full exif for a little more data. Michael, I don't have any tricks to setting the exposure, I pretty much just guessed at it, but the camera helps because in the manual mode it seems to show on the LCD what the pic is going to look like, I can change the speed or F/# and the LCD will get darker or lighter, when it looks about right I take a pic. Some turn out good and some don't.

And there I am as well :)

Thanks Dave. I have really fallen in love with digital because I can experiment so much. I haven't figured out the exposure as much as I need, and even with playing I find I get too much contrast. Time for a bit of reading or a class I think.

Thanks again, and Great stuff!

Did you enter the EXIF data or is this being done automatically somehow? The reason I ask is because it seemed certain details were missing. For instance, I went looking for ISO and exposure compensation, but neither was there. Not a criticism--just curious.

pbase.com adds the exif data automatically if it hasn't been stripped from the pic by a photo editor, but I read that Canon puts some of the exif data in a different spot and pbase can't read it for some reason, I guess they need to do some updating, anyway here is all the data I have on the Dark Sunrise pic.
