Those are big and beautiful buildings.
(after reading my comments, I thought that they sound like a personal ad - 1 Big and Beautiful man seeks SWF who can cook and clean. She must be.....)
I like the first one the best with the clouds.
(Of course you could always fix the keystone effect.)

I tried to study Photoshop CS for the Keystone effect but failed to grasp it.

Thanx fer the comments!

Here is a shot I took of the bride having her makeup done before the wedding. I am just getting around to processing the images. http://fourthirdsphoto.com/components/com_simpleboard/uploaded/images/makeup.jpg

Tested out the Zuiko 50mm f1.8 I got from Tony. I\'m quite impressed.

No post processing done. Just resized the image and added the border through photocleaner. Click for the larger size.

Yup! I\'m afraid I will start lusting for faster lenses that I cannot afford. :laugh:

I used the E300 built in flash and the FL-36 bounced on the ceiling for that picture though. I really like the dual flash results.

Well, the snow has arrived in Toronto.

Thanksgiving photos:

This one is a HUGE deal for me, Not blowing out the glare from the lake through the windows and exposing the room with the flash. I have a mental block against being able to do this.

Mom\'s friend who is like another Grandmother to my kids. I used layers, some guassian blur to smooth out those (wrinkles) and then erased her eyes and lips. This was my first attempt at this.

GREAT shots of the kids, and especially the table. It is difficult to match the light, but you got close. Maybe blend in a couple different exposures.

Great pics everyone..........

Two last ones from me for this week........
A little explanation ... The first one is of a Dragline.
The second picture if you look close the Bulldozer is at the bottom center.

THIS is my idea of heavy equipment.
Although it is environmentally friendly and is totally electric, for some reason the Tree Huggers hate it.
I wonder why? http://fourthirdsphoto.com/components/com_simpleboard/uploaded/images/6533f65ec54ef1661963f1e4030886f0.jpg http://fourthirdsphoto.com/components/com_simpleboard/uploaded/images/cc5f94c32fa0d7a17d27bb2ea18c7188.jpg

My husband went bowhunting to fill his cow moose tag and got a good sized cow.
I would post the pictures but I didn\'t want to offend any non hunters. ;) Maybe I can participate next week! DANG IT\'s cold here...:(

You live in Alaska and you\'re complaining about the cold? Doesn\'t that kind of come as part of the deal?:P

Not complaining :P
Informing....LOL :laugh: It\'s -17° outside. Makes it hard on the Evolt to take any outdoor pics.

Lara,

I would very much like to see your photos.

I wonder if it is a general consensus that hunting scenes are too offending for a general audience to be shown in a photo forum like this? (If they are very bloody, I can understand.)

Cheers, Jens.

I can edit out the bloody stuff by cropping etc but I didn\'t want to offend anyone who doesn\'t believe in hunting. We use almost all of the animal and treat it with great respect as a family but I know not everyone believes it is an honorable thing to do.
I can tell you that since the cow moose was taken with a bow and arrow with an almost perfect shot, the death was quick and almost instantanous. It\'s much more humane than with a rifle. I\'ll try and upload them into my album in the Gallery and then if you are interested, you can see them there.

There are many things that offend me way more than hunting photos. I say post them, but I only speak for myself

Gunner, I love your INXS photos!

Lara, I don\'t know if an arrow is better than a bullet if correctly shot. However, I know for sure that the animals live happily all their lives and die fast without any stressful fear. (That can not be said about all the tame cattle, pigs, and chicken that most of us eat without thinking a second over how their conditions were and how they died.)

Thanks, I looked at them and they are nice documentary pictures showing reality. Is it your husband with the bow? I can\'t see anything offending in those pictures - but then, I have pretty thick skin.

Cheers, Jens.

The first couple with the big burly man are my favorites of the series. Very National Geographic to me.

I have a lot of respect for bow hunters. Not easy to bring something down with a bow. I used to hate to run up on them on horseback though. My mare hated those big bow packs. We also made alot of noise and wore orange during bow hunting season(we didn\'t ride in the mountains during open season with guns)

It does look cold there. So foreign to me anymore. We only get a couple of snows a year and they are gone in a day

More from me. I have probably shot 400 pictures in the last few days. I won\'t bore you with all of them! ;)
I just thought these were fun :)
