No editing, straight from the memory card. I wondered your opinion.
ISO-100, F-5.6, Time 2 min, you can see the plane that passed through the lower third. ISO-100, F-5.6, Time-7 min ISO-200, F-6.7, Time 5min, re-focused and angled toward the darkest sky. You can see the obstructive clouds and there is light coming in from all weird angles. Some from the sun (although it is below the horizon, 8:30pm) and some from the nearby forest service station, surprisingly bright. Anyway, not even close to what I was hoping for but a start.
Chiriaco Summit sunset. The sun was setting fast and I was able to snap a few photos. I hope to try turning some of these into HDR images. These haven't been processed yet. There weren't a lot of clouds in the sky but it was still quite nice.
These are a few images taken this August. Some from the pool. I occasionally take pictures of flowers and other foliage although I am not too sure about proper composition. When I saw this little flower on our recent camping trip, front and center seemed appropriate.
I changed some of my lighting for this aquarium as well as some hardscaping and I am very happy with the way it looks. The glass is scratched, not much I can do about that. The Firemouth is coloring up nicely, he is a lone man in the tank, unless you count Mr. Crabby, the shrimp. I got more quality photos this session than previously, I'm stoked. All of these images are straight out of the camera, no editing. Both of them like to hide out behind the wood under the heater. I really liked the amount of detail in these two shots. This is how I usually find him. Peeking out to see if anyone is coming to eat him. I also like this shot because the colors are very true to life. His "firemouth" is really maturing now. Full body shot. I'm not sure where the tear in his tail fin came from, probably in his lightning quick escape into his hole when someone came into the room.
I had the chance to go back to my hometown and do a little vet work this last weekend. It was a super fast trip but we got to see a few minutes of a bike race while there. As usual all of these images are straight out of the camera. Thats how I roll the fat ones.
This blog is named after my grandfather whose nickname was Grey Eagle. He passed away in Oct 2008 and we miss him dearly. I grew up in So. California and have done a little traveling before completing my graduate degree in Veterinary Medicine. Our family recently relocated to Mesa, Arizona. I have an amazing wife and four great kids who I love more than anything. I take a lot of outdoor/wildlife pictures and moments with my kids. This site is a way for me to archive my photography ventures. My brother (www.reevesvisuals.com)inspires me to do more post production work with my photos. Photoshop is a whole new deal for me and I'm just beginning to scratch the surface.
