    Wow, and what a great day weather wise today was up here! I really like the first and third especially - valentines, a chili cook off, reflections galore.... That last one really captures the happiness in people's faces in their celebration, and you've got a nice view of China Town, too! Great colors everywhere!:2thumbs:

    Nice Pics

    I like specially the reflections on the first one and the colours and crowd in the third one. The colours also are fine.

    Thanks guys.

    Re: the colors, all the post-processing was done with Aperture 3 (thanks to FaceFullofBees' hack) + Alien Skin Exposure Velvia 50. Back in the day I mostly shot Velvia or Kodachrome 64 for normal light conditions and still process everything that way now.
