Took this yesterday morning off the Galveston seawall with my new D7100, using my 16x85 Nikkor. I was watching these guys moving out there all morning to fish...there are several jetties out off the seawall. I've got alot of other ones earlier with pink sky, but I like this one with the bird in the foreground and the sun. Minimal sharpening and RAW adjustments in Photoshop. This is about what it looked like. Enjoy.

I will be there in late June. I plan to set up either up on the elevated section at the end of the Tulleries where it meets the Place, or if I can't get up there set up on the curb there and shoot straight down it to the Arc with a 300mm. I've seen pictures like this before and they are pretty cool.

Paris is great, have fun. I'd been drinking wine, the sky was cool and the strobe light from the eiffel tower was looking like a UFO at times against the clouds so I snapped this pic trying to get the UFO effect. That didn't entirely work out but it wasn't a bad snap anyway. There was more wine on the other side of the street in any case.:p

Hand held with a happy buzz on.:D Canon powershot sx 110is. I have a tripod but I never use it. Now I have a Canon EOS Rebel T3i with a 18-200 zoom, lol, the tech. aspects are somewhat lost on me. I don't do any post processing either, just play around for fun. I enjoy attempting to compose in the frame.

I like taking pictures of birds so I should probably start using a tripod but it's a bother to lug around. If I get a bigger lens I'll have to though.

A good book that will really help you and is easy to understand is Understanding Exposure by Brian Peterson. I wish I had read it sooner than I did. Take care.

Yeah, that's Ventoux from Avignon. The Mistral was blowing while we were there, beautiful city and strong wind. Must be the good food.

Plane trails and stars over Lisbon. Four 30 second (max I can get without going onto Bulb mode which sucks) exposures.

Knowing you I'd say that was a tongue-in-cheek comment directed at me ( :p ), but in case it's a serious question, no, it's my brother. Should have included date, 2014.

It was tongue-in-cheek, but I wanted it to have a bit of ambiguity :p

Cool pictures, I take it you took them?
