Here are a couple or 4 of the shots from the other evening.
Normal people just want to show their best stuff but "mine is yet to come" he said smiling slyly.

As I mentioned, I took the camera out without filters and on an evening like this, I really needed them.

This is Mt Baker across Arrowhead point you can really see the haze but all in all I like it. It's about 200mm (400)



This one I went full 300 (600) zoom just for effect.



Round deeper in the bay is the good ship scally. Short for Scallywag, (a troublesome kid in Liverpool) This is at full zoom also. I like the "almost" Mediterranean look to the backdrop.



Then I went around to the west side of the island near home and took some sunset shots. I've been setting the white balance to "cloud" and bringing the shutter to -1 to -2, it gives that warm look to the shot but I think I overcooked this one.
Any comments would be great and welcome.

.............now you got it workin' and you've really got to be feeling good about it too.

For the sunset, I like it as 'cooked' and the Scally looks good with the 'pusher' out of the framing.

Those are nice!

Thanks Bob.

Yeh, the meat grinder on the back looks like a wart with the lines of the boat.

I hadn't noticed before but I zoomed in on the pick and saw this:---

Terry my sailing buddy put the new ID numbers on (Of course it was him..!) last week. He was working off the deck upside down....:-)

Key Ken,

Great shots one and all!!

The color of the evening sun looks great on the snow at the top of Mt. Baker. As for the Sunset, That looks fine to me.

You know, pretty soon you're going to want to add an EC-14 teleconverter to that lens and really zoom in............:?

Zig

Good one. Did your buddy get the "k" backwards because he was upside down or because of what he was drinking while on the boat?? Wait a minute, how do we know it was a buddy and not the owner?? (LOL)

:lol:
