Been pretty busy lately with almost no time to photograph, however, when I saw the sky this morning full of wipsy clouds,I grabbed my camera and took it with me on a business trip, knowing thatI would be by "the dam' at about sunset. The sky ended up not being as marvellous as I thought it would be, but I managed to capture this shot [and a few other similars]

Any thoughts ?? I'm still not sure ofthe calibration of my LCD monitor, so what looks OK here might look totally bad on your side. Colors are as taken, slight adjustment on contrast, and sharpened.

Hi Jake! Glad to see a post from you, I think your monitor is right on! Awesome shot with the sun behind the windmill, I second squirl's remarks!

Thanks for looking in Bob and Sqirl, I wasn't too sure if the sun behind the windmill is TOO obvious/kitch?? --- Anyway, here is a landscape view [slightly different]

Really nice shots Jake. To me, windmills help make sunsets-sunrises- and moon shots.

Interesting point about the monitor. Is there any way of setting one's monitor to a visual standard? Good photos!

Hi Zol - There is a device called a Spider which works with software to calibrate the monitor, very pricey, so for the mean-timethe eye will have to do. The photographic club in this area is deciding to get one one, so maybe then I could use theirs.

Thanks for looking in

Hey Jake. Nothing ordinary here. Nice composition on these. Great colours. Too bad about working too much, but I know what you mean. I've been going at it hard all summer, and never seem to get any time to shoot anything lately. Maybe once the fall hits.......Anyway, keep up the good work......... from the far side of the planet........cheers.....thekman.
