a shot from this morning - the sun is just coming up and shining from the left of frame to right...

this is SOOC JPEG using (gasp) iAuto mode and I really like it

I tried my hand at improving the shot and I think it is slightly better although the SOOC JPEG was very acceptable

more shots from this morning


PA086176_1 by ramcewan, on Flickr

the tree in the park is pretty much done


PA086166_1 by ramcewan, on Flickr

down in the 40s which made for a foggy morning

pano stitch

single frame from the pano


PA086198_1 by ramcewan, on Flickr

this lens is certainly sharp enough imho, sure the PL 25mm f1.4 is probably better but nothing to complain about here


PA086240_1 by ramcewan, on Flickr

never forget to look up!

Nice shots. I think I would have liked to try some EV bracketing on these shots. Some may have looked more dramatic at a lower EV.

thanks folob and nice to see you!

James - thanks! what shots in particular do you think would be better at a lower EV?

Actually I would bracket -1 to +1 on all shots of this nature and also play around with the in camera saturation level. A tad more saturation can make some shots even more colorful but I would not overdo it. I have never played around shooting fall colors this year but my friend loves shooting fall colors and that is his recommended method and he has taken some great shots.

a couple more and then i'm gonna call this thread done...

sometimes you stop at a new spot to shoot and find the spot isn't what you thought it would be and sadly walking back to the car something catches your eye and shows you there is always something worth shooting...
SOOC JPEG

PA116299 by ramcewan, on Flickr

cropped and processed


PA116299_1 by ramcewan, on Flickr

cropped some more


PA116299_2 by ramcewan, on Flickr

a different focal point


PA116300_1 by ramcewan, on Flickr

sometimes you are driving and think to stop cause the sun is hitting a tree just right ... I say do it!


PA116304_1 by ramcewan, on Flickr

An old spot I have used for testing sharpness of some manual lenses, this is a monument to the men of Derry, NH who fought in the civil war.


PA116309_1 by ramcewan, on Flickr

and just for a comparison in what 14mm looks like from the same spot


PA116314_1 by ramcewan, on Flickr


Finally this tree less than a week ago had most of it's leaves and now it is done, fall is but a fleeting moment and then we wait until next year


PA116268_1 by ramcewan, on Flickr


While shooting I found something out about the park I have been visiting, it is called Ordway Park and it has a section that is a memorial to 9/11/01. The two granite posts I have used to frame shots of the tree represent the towers, one of the round cylindrical items has writing with the pentagon and each of the flight numbers. And then there is this, it brings such emotion to me, this tribute to the ultimate sacrifice some made so that day would not be worse than it already was with this simple phrase they stood up against that evil and said we will not go down without a fight.
