  • Some good advice, I also should have turned off the horizontal IBIS which would have helped for the few panning shots I took. Burst would have been good. What about using the video mode and ...

    Santa pass:
  • Thanks everyone, I agree about the panning but was trying to get Santa, conjunction and Christmas tree all in the same frame. Good to hear it's not completely my fault. At this time I only have the ...
  • My Father was lucky enough to have been born and live in Yosemite. Along with my Grandfather he was a National Park Ranger in Yosemite until about 1958 when he transferred to Olympic NP where I was...

  • Created discussion thread Help with Santa pictures
    Every year the local fire department escorts Santa around our community but I have yet to get a decent photo. This year I caught him with the Jupiter/Saturn conjunction but the results of him have ...

  • Commented on photo steeples in the Nighty night challenge

    Very nice! That's part of my neighborhood.

  • Yes Aftershot has what they call healing layer with various tools. I have yet to get very good results (most likely more on me than the program). Only been using for a few days. Again, thanks for ...
  • You are quite forgiven, looks much better without the street sign and shadow. Thanks for the inspiration! Which program did you use? All I have is Aftershot Pro 3.
  • Thanks everyone! Yep, the stop sign is a distraction. I tried a couple different angles but couldn't get a good composure. Might try some PP but I'm very new at using so may not be worthwhile.
  • Not a great photo, just a quickie shot, hand held, straight from camera. I saw the neighbor walking dogs and liked the scene. Didn't have time for tripod. The way the new LED streetlights make the ...

    G9-Tree & street: Hand held quickie shot. Like the way the new LED streetlights make the background B&W. Image is straight from camera.
  • Excellent and fortuitous capture. Possibly Mt Baker Ski Area might be interested in a print?
