Re: monument valley last week

Agreed, it's a harsh environment for photos. Your next to last shot, to me, is the best. I like the colors, subject interest, and composition. Not too much uninteresting foreground, and nice placement of the largest monument in a sweet spot really helps it stand out.

Re: A Squirrel and his Nut

Hi Roger - cute little squirrel! We had these all over the place where I grew up (SC).

The third shot is my fav. In order to bring him out of the shadows, though, you could perhaps employ 'painting with light' - don't ask me how, but i know its' a PP technique that I've seen; the results can be quite dramatic.

Re: A few pics from St Patricks Day Parade...

Nice pictures I should remind myself to go to these kind of events more often, seems like a nice way for a possibly shy camera user to snap some candid shots.

Re: 2013 Redwood Region Logging Conference

Thanks, Roger.  I do tend to get carried away with the pix.  The pulp mills used to gas Eureka when the wind was out of the NW, it was an awful smell of chlorine and other noxious gasses.  They've been closed for years.  Rich

Suspicion/Pondering

E-3 and 35-100mm

Taken at a gelato parlour in San Diego. I am not sure if the girl is pondering how the gelato tasted or is suspicious of the camera user.

Re: monument valley last week

Nice series.  Like the inclusion of the horses in the first.  Also in the second last, like how the 'monuments' show nicely against a clean sky.

Thanks for contributing,

Andrew

Re: A Squirrel and his Nut

Roger, you must be feeding him.  Could not have been very timid for you to get these at 60 mm.  Still snowing and cold here but the spring flowers are starting to emerge from the soil.  The sun light during the day must thaw the soil enough.

Thanks for contributing,

Andrew

Re: Koolau Waterfalls

Love the mist and the ruggedness of the hill side and all that greenery.

Thanks for contributing Jan,

Re: Suspicion/Pondering

Where is the gelato?  Has she already had it, or waiting for it to arrive?  Cute subject.  The backlighting didn't help this image, but you can hardly ask her to move.

Thanks for contributing and welcome to ths thread,

Andrew

Thank you for the advice.  I've only had the E-1 since Thursday, so it remains a work in process to be sure, along with the rest of the fleet.  I will read up on painting with light.  Thank you again.

Re: A Squirrel and his Nut

Yes, I was remarkably close, otherwise the 60mm would not have worked well.  There is a walking path in front of that tree, and homes on the other side.  He no doubt is accustomed to the passage of people.

Re: three colors E 510 + zd 35 macro

Nice summer colours Harri.  Snowing here at this moment and forecast for more until next week and after that, don't know.  Last year had my tractor de-snowblowered and ready to cut grass by the end of March.  Don't know if I am going to ready to do so this year.

Thanks for contributing and hoping to see spring soon!

A few with the E-1 and 17.5-45 ZD lens

Three taken from a park near my office with the Zuiko Digital 17.5-45mm f/3.5-5.6. The lens was looking for some attention, as I should use it more often than I do. It is no SHG or HG lens, but it still does a good job of it with the E-1.

Re: A few with the E-1 and 17.5-45 ZD lens

Another nice place for a walk.  Roger, I don't see any snow!  I thought it was snowing there a couple of days ago?  Snowed here today (not much) and more for tomorrow.  You post lots of images shooting toward those mountains.  What is in the opposite direction?

Thanks for contributing,

In the opposite direction, in general, is the Great Plains.  From that park though it is mostly higher elevation and suburban sprawl.

Yes, we need a lot of snow.  Thus far we are at normal for March, but behind for all the prior months in the season.  We are expecting snow tomorrow and Saturday.

Roger.
