    Travel Advice - Colorado for Fall colors

    Update: Got back from the trip last night and I have to thank everyone here and so many others on the internet. The trip was amazing, I can't wait to go back to Colorado again. Even though this year seems to be pretty bad for fall colors, my wife and I had an awesome time there. I was lucky...

    Travel Advice - Colorado for Fall colors

    Update: I have been pretty busy with moving to a new place and searching for car :(. However, I did manage to note down a lot of places from my research and have made an excel sheet. I am still working out the exact details but I booked my tickets today. I found a good deal from DC to Durango...

    Travel Advice - Colorado for Fall colors

    Thanks TC for the website and the advice. The only video that I saw which got me thinking was a video where an SUV was having a tough time en route to crystal mills. It's not on the list, but if I decide to go there, it'll most likely be a guided tour.

    Travel Advice - Colorado for Fall colors

    My bad, I thought you said don't fly into Denver. Thank you for all the locations, I'll soon chalk out a detailed plan and post it here for you guys to comment on and see if it's doable. I am flat lander, didn't think it would be that bad high up there. Thank you for the advice, I had...

    Travel Advice - Colorado for Fall colors

    juangrande, Thank you for your reply. I was thinking Denver because tickets to and from Denver are cheaper than flying into any other airport except for Durango. If Denver's not worth it, then I'll fly to Durango and back. I can probably stay for a day or two at Aspen and see the locations you...

    Travel Advice - Colorado for Fall colors

    Hello everyone, As the subject states, my wife and I intend to go to Colorado for a week in the last week of September. I'll most likely fly out of DC on September 23rd and would like to come back on September 30th if there are enough places to see in Colorado. I wouldn't mind cutting it...

    That lens is just amazing, Dave. One of my other nieces (who's 11) used my OM-D and 75mm and managed to make some awesome photographs. I'll post photos made by her over the weekend. Needless to say, this lens probably shines in anyone's hand :smile:.

    Japanese Camera Sale

    My first MFT camera was a Panasonic G1 Japanese model. When I got it, the menu was all in Japanese and the owner thought it couldn't be changed to English. However, there's a firmware hack that allows you to change the language to English. Never had a single problem with the camera, so look...

    Confused About Macro Adapters

    What's the budget you're looking at? I got lucky once on ebay where I made an offer of $55 for BNIB Marumi DHG +5 and +3 achromats (55mm filter thread) and the seller accepted it. Try ebay, you might get a good deal on those.

    Skyline Drive, Virginia

    I must have bad information then :(. A friend asked me to avoid Shenandoah valley (esp skyline dr) because of cicadas. Thanks for the info Tom, I'll try and go there soon. Please post the IR photographs as well, curious to see how those have turned out.

    Good stuff, Tom. I have been there only once in Fall, Spring looks equally promising as well. I hear Shenandoah is filled with cicadas. Did you have a tough time cleaning your car later? :smile:

    So, I couldn't keep myself away from this lens. Met Chris (nuclearboy) this weekend and bought his lens. Boy oh boy, this lens is EXCITING. Amazing lens. One of the "test" shots from this weekend: Very minimal PP.

    Timos, That's a beautiful photograph. I love the light, the people and the pigeons. The only thing I wish was there was another person on the right hand side to balance it a bit. Good stuff though.

    Some more flowers in UV

    Thanks. As this is only for experimentation, I guess I'll get a less powerful/cheaper UV torch and do longer exposures. I might finally get a chance to use the live time mode.

    Some more flowers in UV

    Hi Boon, Upon further research, looks like Nichia might be available but a little hard to source. However, I came across "blue light" that a lot of divers use for fluorescence videos. Would this light work well for flowers too? Or is it very specific to underwater objects?

    Where is this forum heading?

    I'm pretty sure I have professional grade photos for all the types mentioned, but I am not sure if they get paid for it. But, if you look around and in the right threads, you will see micro four thirds being used quite extensively for fashion, portraiture and product photography. However, we...

    I agree. All the micro four thirds lenses I have used so far seemed pretty sharp wide open then I hardly stop down. Nuclearboy has listed his 75mm for sale on CL here and I am really really tempted to get it. I need to stop visiting this thread for a while, else I might end buying his lens...

    The Real Street Thread II

    ptolemyx, To me there's no single point of interest in the frame. My eyes go from the building (two columns on the top, entry into the frame) which leads me to the busy group of people and then the crooked street/sidewalk to the the tree (exit line for the frame). There's nothing of interest...

    Question about stopping by the roadside to photograph

    I would definitely park on a relatively straight road than on the corner. I'll definitely have to use my best judgement and think about many factors before I stop. I live in DC and I know what it's like when tourists become an impediment to locals :smile:. I wouldn't want to be one when I am...

    Question about stopping by the roadside to photograph

    cmpatti, Thanks! That's a good place to start as I intend to visit California later this year. Yes, I wouldn't stop unless I find the safest spot to stop and photograph. I guess I'd have to look up individual state laws depending on the places I intend to visit regarding parking on...
