Abstract / Holiday Colours
« on: December 08, 2014, 12:54:59 PM »
I thought I'd start a thread for the upcoming holidays, whatever holidays one chooses, with a focus on colour. Abstraction isn't a sine qua non, but I wasn't sure where else to fit it.

Thought I'd start a thread for pronghorns and other wild ungulates. We have lots of pronghorns around here (often, but mistakenly, called an antelope). They're generally much easier to take pictures of than deer.

1. Female pronghorn. She was by the side of the road and just stood there nonchalantly while I snapped away.
2. Male and female pronghorns in a farmer's field.
3. Bison

1. I guess I'm back in my fire hydrant phase.
2. Weed growing alongside railway ties.

Don't know if these have been posted before, but I thought I'd throw them out there. I saw them for the first time today.

Photography Technique / Clouds

Any advice on how to get the most detail out of clouds?

Landscape / Flowers and other Flora

Not landscape, but I'm not sure where else to put these.

1. Sunflower
2. Day lily (I think)

Brown-eyed Susans (I think) in a ditch by a canola field.

Animal Kingdom / Bears in the Wild
« on: July 03, 2014, 12:54:42 PM »
Any pictures of wild bears? I'll post a few. My brother-in-law and I were down in Waterton Lakes National Park, Alberta, Canada, a couple of weeks ago looking for bears to photograph. We encountered ten. No grizzlies, just black bears.

Photography Technique / Free Lensing
« on: June 27, 2014, 09:41:43 PM »
Decided to try a bit of free lensing using a 7D and Canon FD 50mm 1:1.8 lens. Not a particularly good lens as was soon apparent. The poorer quality compared to modern lenses jumped right out immediately. I dolled the picture up a bit in both Color Efex Pro 4 and Analog Efex Pro. Free lensing isn't a technique I can see myself using much. Anyone else have any pictures taken using this method?

Wheat field with flattened perspective jazzed up in Perfect Effects 8. Makes an interesting desktop.

Landscape / Mountains, Lakes and Rivers
« on: May 21, 2014, 01:51:44 PM »
Any photos of mountains, lakes and rivers anywhere on the planet? I'll start off with a few. The first one is a mountain overlooking Canmore, Alberta, Canada. It was taken at the end of March. The second one is Cowichan Lake on Vancouver Island, north of Victoria.

Landscape / Seashore, Beaches and Harbours
« on: May 10, 2014, 10:40:52 PM »
Any shots of seashores, beaches or harbours anywhere? These two photos are of Clover Point, Victoria BC at low tide.
