Thanks Carol! The third shot does not have the Orton effect although I've used that before and like it. I processed that one in Lightroom 3 Beta (which is temporarily free to use, by the way). Much of the subdued golden color was from a Lighroom preset called Antique Light. That took away much of th...

That looks like it was a great trip, Al. I made a similar one a couple years ago before I learned much about photography (Zion, Bryce, Capitol Reef). I really like the shot of the birches on Boulder Mountain. We stayed a night at Boulder Mountain Lodge in Boulder. That morning I saw the most spectac...

Nice shots Carol, very cute. :D I've been playing around with spring shots taken at local parks. Some of these are obviously pretty highly processed and not intended to be "realistic". :) http://lh6.ggpht.com/_wKliVnGuHvc/S9CzHGwdUFI/AAAAAAAAAco/80UFsS3Ykcs/s800/DSC_0345-2.jpg http://lh4.ggpht.com/_...

That was really cool. I love time-lapse. There's probably a lot of interesting things you can do with that feature.

I'm still hoping to make a winter trip to Vermont although I'm running out of time. They haven't had much snow up there this year either. In the meantime here's some I've grabbed locally. I like to run out to the lake around sunset. These are from 3 different days. The last shot was from right after...

Wow, such sad news. Depression is a terrible thing. I visited Dog Mountain this year and it was a remarkable and truly unique place.

Congrats on the new camera Andy! Were you shooting a full frame camera previously? What lenses do you primarily use? I'm in the midst of planning a trip out west for early June. The current idea is to fly out to San Francisco and take two weeks going up the coast to Seattle. I'm hoping to hit the Re...

Thanks ct!

In a related topic, David Middleton blogged today about what makes a good winter photo. He suggests that the early winter is the best time. So I'd better get up to Vermont soon!

Nice Carol! I like the first one the best as well. We had an early snow in NJ also. Probably the same storm. My wife and I took advantage of it to get our Christmas card shot of our daughter. Kids provide quite a challenge.... photographically and otherwise! :D But I was really happy with the way th...

You did a great job cloning there abby. I can't see where you did the work. Sometimes cloning is so easy, and sometime nearly impossible! It's all about the background.

Alright, here are my Grade B shots from foliage season. :D Some of them I really like but have something detracting from them. Mostly lighting. This first one was just south of Manchester. I recently learned how to blend multiple exposures in post processing using layers and masks (not HDR). This sc...

Hey Andy, Yep, it is too quiet around here. I've been thinking of posting a handful of additional shots from my fall Vermont trip. I should get those uploaded. There's always a few that seemed like nothing special at first, but pop out when you get a chance to work on them more closely. :) I've been...

Hey color,
Very impressive set. My favorites are
the second stream shot, with the red leaves framing the water,
the Kanc shot from inside the window-- very creative!
and the two "wall of color" type shots-- "fall colors" and "fall in white mtns". Really beautiful.

I was in Vermont from 10/3 - 10/11. I though the color was amazing in the NEK (from St. Johnsbury all the way up to Lake Willoughby) and in the White Mtns until about 10/7, at which point the rain and wind took it's toll quickly. At that point we decided to start exploring south. We drove down throu...

Thanks for posting. It looks like you guys had a really good time-- horseback riding, atv riding, etc! I really like the pictures from NH with the snow, and the second portrait of your wife in front of the waterfall in Vermont came out really nice.
