    Chilly good morning from Melbourne

    Great shot! I love the trees rising out of the mist. Speaking of mist, is that Ayers Rock/Uluru below the sun, or just a cloud? Acer

    Weekly Challenge #5: Silhouettes and sunsets

    Winners! Hey everyone, sorry for the tardy judging! Life got a tad crazy this week. This one was very hard to judge, so close, I'd probably have just as hard a time if I had to re-choose! A bit about why I like sunsets, they change so quickly, and so dramatically, within such a short time...

    Wow, wish I could go there for one of those! When I was there back in March last year, I really enjoyed that place. Here's the handful of keepers I got. Flickr Search: sacramento railroad museum Apologies about the new stupid Flickr layout. :-/ Acer

    Weekly Challenge #5: Silhouettes and sunsets

    I hope this isn't too specific, but I really love seeing sunsets with silhouettes of stuff (people, trees, buildings, anything neat). Bonus for awesome cloud formations! :biggrin: Here's two photos to give ya an idea of what I'm looking for. The first was taken back in my P&S days with a...

    New 72 hour blue Ribbon Challenge: Break on Through

    Here is my interpretation of the theme. It took me a while to think of a photographic interpretation of the theme. Thanks, Colin! :-) I love seeing images of plants growing in the tiniest of cracks in stone, knowing that they have the potential to break even the largest of rocks apart. Acer

    Caught Comet Panstarrs

    Similar to you, I couldn't see it with the naked eye. I thought the night was a bust until I got home and started processing. This is the best of what I got with my 45-200. Acer

    Praying Mantis - 60mm Macro

    Very nice shots! Is that an invisible black backdrop you used in the last 2? That narrow DOF is really hard to manage sometimes. I have a hard enough time with my 20/1.7... Acer

    11th Mu-43 Salon Competition - Wildlife

    It's no lion or anything, but it's wild. Scared a bunny out of the bushes doing yard work the other day. Between the failing light, my dog sniffing, and only having one hand to use, I figure it came out pretty well. GF1 + 20mm @ISO 800, 1/40s. Acercanto

    The Right Lens for the Job?

    The only lenses that consistently come with me (now that I have some native lenses) are the 20mm and the 45-200. I haven't felt the need for anything in between yet, except for a faster 45-200, but that's a given. It's what I take backpacking, it's what I take to sporting events, gatherings...

    Taking pics of Fireworks with E-pm1

    I usually get there before dusk and set the tripod up and autofocus on something about as far away as the fireworks, then switch it to manual. Or you could autofocus on the first few boomers, then turn it to manual. Acer

    First experiment with light painting, images attached

    Very cool! I think light painting is a hugely underused effect. It doesn't always have to be glaringly obvious. Here's a shot I took this past spring and used a dim flashlight to illuminate each of our faces a bit. My face is the brightest one. GF1, 20mm, f1.7, ISO 400, 25secs. Acer

    Help with Landscape picture taking?

    Without knowing the details, I would say a combination of fog (out of your control), UV (UV filter will cut through that), direct sunlight (a lens hood could help, or sometimes just your hand, carefully out of frame) would cut down on the effect you're getting. Hope that helps, Acer

    7th Mu-43 Salon Competition - Capturing a unique moment

    Well, as soon as I heard about it, I knew it would be my submission for this salon. The transit of Venus, not to happen again for over 100 years. And to make it more singular, we had clouds, so good shots of the sun were fleeting at best. This was taken with a GF1 and the 45-200 @200mm, ISO...

    Absolute minimum kit

    My current kit is my barebones kit. It goes with me everywhere. GF1 + 20mm/1.7 + 45-200 I have a few manual lenses, but hardly ever use them, now that I have the Pany 20. Acer
