Whoohooo!
Photography!
All taken at ISO 800 or ISO 1600 without flash, Fuji F10.

Watch the background of the pic of my buddy Vedran, the guitarplayer.
Wouldn't every musician like to play in such an ambiance?

:mrgreen:

Got Google Earth

(available at http://earth.google.com).


Go the land from the railroad for next to nothing... its just south of downtown in Jacksonville, Florida.

It was excess industrial land... we turned it into a little park with a brick wall, iron gates, a pond, foot bridge decks, and lots of plants and bugs.

The insect pics are done with a macro lens.

from this morning in the yard.
thanks bert, you opened/reminded me of  picture taking,
i was so far from it this past time, just into "efficiency" etc.
didn't find a local hommel yet.
found some greedy beetles though.

That pic of muriel was a lucky shot, in the practicing room when the door was only a bit open. That;s why she has the funny things in het ears :-)

Composing such shots is very difficult and gives unnatural results, don't you agree?

Sometimes you get even better results when you do some sharpening in a picture, or straigthen it, make it black and white etc..
Simple program to achieve that is www.picasa.com

the M pic is exceptional. it has a painting quality.  M is a muse!
i think the lucky shots as you call them are indeed always the best.
sometimes i'll get a "feel" in such a shot, even though it's blurry/bad quality etc, and the "sharp" shot afterwards doesn't "have it".
what, you mean you can sharpen pics?  thansk again my brother.

That cat peeking through the gras is cool. How did you get the cat sharp?


i don't know. regular/auto everything. i did lie on the ground though, and try and aim exactly on the tiger, um cat.
i'm not done with that, i wanna get a tiger/jungle feel. (i have the tigers and i have the jungle, so..)

btw, howler also mentioned fuji...
you know bertje i can't rest now till i get  a f10,,,
