    Very nice Diane. Hadn't seen a magnolia since I left Texas 20 some odd years ago.

    A little more high-contrast shot - from my more thoughtful days.

    I'm going to have to look into some of the great shots you are getting. B&W is great to show detail.

    Diane,
    At my former apartment there was a large Magnolia tree in the back yard and I loved the see it blooming. Here in the Richmond/Williamsburg area they use a lot of magnolia (the leaves not the bloom) to deocrate for Xmas. They seem to last forever.

    I bet the Magnolia would be lovely in B&W. Honestly, I may never take color pictures again. I was truly inspired to try B&W by the pics in the other thread by Steve and,I believe,Keith Benjamin. I thought they were phenomenal!

    Give it a shot and already anticipating the results!

    JRS,

    Great shot. Now I know I want to do some B&W. Gotta go get some film. You can even see the reflection of the cloud to the left. Great effects.

    Oregon

    I'm planning on being up in Portland, Oregon the middle of October. That lake looks nice.

    Rainbow over Providence RI

    I can't take credit for this one, but a co-worker shot this Thursday on his way in to meet up with me. Some of you may know Joe Vitale - this is his.
    All this resurgence in photography (thanks to Cindy & Diane) has made me decide to dust off the ol' gear and start shooting again. Thinking about buying one of the new SLR digitals - probably a Canon Rebel.

    Did he take that out a plane window? Or on top of a major mountain? That makes me want to cry. That is phenomenal!

    I am taking my camera and my B&W film tomorrow to the older sections of
    Richmond and see what develops (pun intended). I have often thought of a digital camera, but that takes the fun of waiting and being surprised away.

    I want Keith Benjamin and Steve to show us more of their shots. I know they both have a few more they are hiding.

    Can't wait to see your pics, Diane and more from you JRS.

    Joe took 3 from the plane window on his way in. I just 1 of the 3 since I thought it was a striking rainbow.


    Have fun in old Richmond. Haven't been there in 10 years.

    Well, JRS, if you ever get to Richmond, I will be happy to show you the Capitol of the Confderacy.

    The beach always seems to provide a few good shots... I snapped about 100 of the beach this past trip (just sunsets and sunrises with different exposures, etc.). While flipping through them, I noticed that I had captured this seagull pretty much dead center of the sinking sun...

    Now, I will say I was trying to get the bird in the frame, but sometimes serendipity can make for some pretty interesting photos!

    I've attached the same pic twice. The orange casted shot is the original coloration- the "blue corrected" is one I doctored a bit with the graphics program (my version of filters ;^).

    A couple more beach shots... Also, I've been messing with the lighting and have found I can take fairly decent shots of people at night if I can get them to stay still AFTER the flash (use flash for the people and then allow the shutter to remain open to collect enough background...).

    Great pics, Pete. I love the yellower one of the sunrises? Sunsets? with the bird.

    Graduation Day, May '04

    Wayne got his master's degree, and Erika got her bachelor's; both were students at UT/Knoxville, and (after the honeymoon) they are headed to NC State, Raleigh, for their doctorate programs.

    I took a picture of a checkerboard through a Visuality and a Panamic. Can you guess which one is which?
