Ron, you imprint your name (copyright?) on your pics. Do you do some stuff professionally? or can cameras be set up to do that automatically?
Thanks for the compliment

The storage site that I use lets me put in the watermark.

So far the pictures posted are right down my alley, scenic and nature.

Nice photos everyone, thanks for sharing.

When it comes to taking pictures, I'm not too creative, just try to caputre what I'm seeing.

I know there is a lot more for me to learn and I'm anxious to see other's creation.

Ron

Ron, your exposure and focus look good, the top photo is really good with the ducks and the over all shot composition.

Ya dun good.

Emeryts, those are fine, the owl shot is really good since her eyes are closed while the owl burns a hole in you. Really like the painted desert shots too, I'd love to get out there one day.

sknight....thanks....that owl was awesome in person. The other shots were from Sedona, AZ. It was taken from an old dirt road coming down the mnt. There are so many more amazing places for photo's in Sedona. Breath taking red rocks. If you get a chance...come to Sedona someday.

I really like the composition on the tractor pic. The other two are well done but you really hit the mark with the tractor.

Bill,

I would say you and your wife are more than just a wanabe photographer

That's a great collection of photos, and covers just about everything.

Great work and thanks for sharing,

Ron

As I said before, I'm strickly P&S, but I enjoy trying, and glad it's the era of digital since I make a lot of mistakes

We took almost a 1000 pics on this Summer's vacation to the west, and this is a quick preview of some of the places we missed during our 2004 vacation to the same area.

I'm in Tampa on business and got a few great lightning shots yesterday. I need to straighten and crop them, but it was great. Here's a sample, I'll load the full size ones when I get back.

I used to do all that aperture setting, speed setting, and light meter testing. Now, I just point and shoot and let these nice technical cameras take the pictures. These were taken with a Panasonic DMZ-127

Wayne,

What part of the country is those last two pictures? Looks like some of the same area we traveled in this year.

My camera, Canon Rebel Xti, has more settings than I will ever use

Just plain P&S digital cameras have really advanced compared to what I first stared out with several years ago.

Ron

lightning shots
Framing looks ok to me

I have lived in the lightning capital of the world for 52 years and never managed a decent lightning shot.

Thanks,

Ron

I need to rotate it a bit to square up the lights at the bottom. I forgot my tripod so I was using the roof of my car with my finger under the lens to tip it up. Improvisation and all.

Take a few shots to square up on the center of lightning activity, and to adjust the focus since auto focus probably won't work. Set your f stop to 11 (I think that's where I shot these.) and your exposure to ten seconds. You might have to experiment with your camera to get it right. Then snap away. I took about 75 exposures, got maybe 20 keepers, and two or three good ones.
