    Thanks for your comment. I was just glad I had the opportunity to capture the scene, the light only lasted for a few minutes.

    Thanks, it was a beautiful scene. I had not noticed the power line, I will have to see if I can remove it.

    I had a recent trip to Zion National Park and Grand Canyon. I was hoping to get some fall color at Zion, but was likely a week or too early. There were spots of color here and there but nothing ...
  • In the White Mountains (NH), you should be able to find a few with water. Glenn Ellis, Sabbaday falls, Cascade falls and Avalanche falls usually have water year round and are fairly accessible. You ...
  • Excellent set, great sky colors!
  • Very nice set, you captured the morning light beautifully!
  • Acadia is one of my favorite shooting locations. I wrote up a trip report from my visit in the fall a couple of years back. This may give a few ideas. http://www.rbpics.com/field-report---acadia My ...
  • Replied in Update
    I tried importing smaller sets of images and didn't experience the issues with the number ratings, color flags or picture orientation. So it looks like the issues were triggered either by the ...
  • I ran the Aperture Import against a copy of my main Aperture library of 64k+ images. It ran for about 8 hours on a Mac Mini 2.6 i7 with 4 processors and 16G RAM. For anyone that tries this, it ...
  • I can't speak to the other two services, but I have been using zenfolio for a number of years and have been very happy. I very much like the styles/color schemes they offer for galleries, very nice ...
  • I work with new images on my local drive, once I am done editing them I move them to an external drive. I have a second external drive that is a duplicate of the primary external drive. I use ...
  • Replied in Boston
    Since you are heading up to New Hampshire and Maine, I do have a couple of shooting guides from my prior trips there that may be of use and my apologies if you have come across these already. For ...
  • Replied in Boston
    As Kent says, the drivers in Boston can be pretty inconsiderate of fellow drivers, but Boston does have  a good subway system and much of Boston is very walkable. There are also plenty of Duck and ...
  • I have used the K-5 IIs with a stacked polarizer and ND8 neutral density filter on multiple occasions and  the exposure was just fine. Here is an examples with the stacked filters. Exposure ...
  • I switched to Pentax a little over 18 months ago with the purchase of the K-5 IIs. I was using a Nikon D7000 prior - the K-5 IIs focuses at least as well as the D7000. I typically don't shoot BIF ...
  • As others have mentioned, use a tripod for landscape shots, along with a delayed (or remote) shutter release. This will minimize any vibration from the shutter release on slow shutter speeds. Don't ...
  • If you are looking to shoot the signature peaks and falls from the valley floor, you will likely looking at mid-range to mild telephoto lengths. My last visit to Yosemite (a few years back now), I ...
  • Not sure I understand the fixation on lens count. I can't remember ever needing 6 lenses in any situation. For a landscape shoot I will take four primes, total weight < 600gm, but I will also have ...
  • I have been very happy with my 15mm Ltd. Excellent resistance to flare and great contrast (like all the Ltds). If interested I have a gallery of all 15mm Ltd samples at http://www.rbpics.com/p696873328
  • Replied in Zenfolio
    I have been using zenfolio a number of years and have been very happy with the service. Very nice access control and it is easy to create a good looking site. If you don't want to use Mpix for the ...
