    Thanks Joann and Steve. You guys have some very nice photos as well. Here's another interesting shot from St. John's Parish...

    Jo,
    I loved the waterfall picture.

    Keith,
    I loved the church picture, too. Do you take pics for fun or are you serious about it? I ask because I am trying to get better and have a friend that is a great photographer helping me. One thing she taught me recently is to take a pic of a building from the corner (of course out from it) as it gives a much more appealing angle. She is so right!

    Thanks Cindy for the complement, but I'm just a rank amateur.

    Angles and perspective can make a big difference. I always try to look for different angles. Sometime getting higher or lower will make a shot more interesting or more dramatic, too. I also try to look for interesting ways to frame a subject. You did a nice job with you're pelican shot.

    Adjusting depth of field is another great trick, making the subject in focus and the background out of focus. You can see this a little in Steve's first post (my favorite, btw).

    It doesn't take much talent to get a great shot when given a subject like my Nags Head sunrise (maybe a little luck ;), but that first shot of Steve's... very nice.

    I love to take pictures of empty benches. It's a quirk of mine. I loved this one almost being consumed by the hydrangeas.

    Okay, its obvious we have some pros here!

    Keith,
    Wow, beautiful shots...

    Cindy,
    Empty benches- what a cool concept. Looks great!

    I'm here in San Fransisco- and of course I just HAD to see the Golden Gate Bridge. Like San Diego, Northern California is simply awesome. It can be 70 degrees near the bay and 25 degrees HOTTER in the valley- just a few miles away.

    I also like editing photos...

    The thing I love about my digital camera is the ability to edit my photos with Corel PhotoPaint. This "old" photo was taken about three hours ago.

    Pete,
    Of all the photos I like the sunset (or sunrise) the best! Awesome. I just love pics taken at sunrise or sunset!

    The bridge pic is awesome, too!:D

    Great pic, Bev. How could a pic of blue sky and the ocean not be lovely! When I was younger I used to hang out at Rohoboth (sp?) is it still popular?

    Hi Cindy,

    Rehoboth is almost an hour north. Fenwick is right along side of Ocean City MD. Heading there in a few weeks. Can't wait.

    I sincerely doubt you'll EVER see a picture of mine that was taken at sunrise! I've seen a few sunrises in my life, but I have to admit to being "tuned" towards sunsets (i.e., I'm a NIGHT OWL!).
    ;)

    We used to spend days at the beach in Rahobeth Beach (sp?). We also went to Lewe's Beach a few times and a place called Harvey Cedars...

    No offense intended here to anyone, but I have a cousin who recently moved to Rehoboth to be around more folks with the same beliefs as herself. Has it not become kinda like the San Francisco of the east coast? This is what I was lead to believe.

    There are whole string of beaches in the Rehoboth, Delaware area. It starts with Lewes, Rehoboth, Dewey, Bethany, Fenwick and then Ocean City, MD.

    The area you may be talking about being like San Francisco is Dewey.

    It is by universal misunderstanding that all agree. For if, by ill luck, people understood each other, they would never agree.

    My Grandfather came over from Italy on a boat and this picture has become very sentimental to me.

    I love that! Who would have thought that a table would float?!?!?!

    There are now thoughts bouncing around my brain - this is the reason for those "do not try this at home" warnings.
