First of all, special thanks for CornUponCob hosting these, since I can't access my host from where I am right now. All were taken with my Sony 707 as I didn't bring the 20D here. Most got just a resize in PS, I used USM and small levels / brightness / contrast on some of them. ========================================================== These two are of the pool area at about 4AM. I'm not sure how I might or might not crop these to make them better. Here is the sunrise. I liked the clouds & dust; I adjusted the exposure to show how it was still dark here even though the sun was coming up. I couldn't decide if I wanted to desaturate / B&W one-or-all of these. I was wishing I had a brightly-colored towel ot put on one of the chairs. I tried a book but it wasn't the same. Some of these I like better than others; I was trying for interesting lighting & angles since plain-ol pool pictures are... plain. I think the first and last are the best. I'm happy with the DoF here but I'm not thrilled with the subject. I just didn't have much to deal with. I like the second one far more than the first. Not sure if maybe I should crop the first one somehow? I like these two also. Also, with how nice the lighting was, I wanted to do a couple of portraits. There was a little old man in the pool (I have no idea what he was doing here, but anyway...) I wanted to take a picture of him but I thought it might be kind of weird to ask if I could take his picture. Finally I corraled a couple of people who worked there.... I guess they're a little underexposed but messing with levels didn't help much. Does the shiny bar distract from the portrait at all do you think? I think this one is the best "portrait." My buddy. I took one without fill flash but I didn't like it quite as much. I airbrushed a little bit of shine off his face from the flash. Off to do something important.... So... I definately look forward to your comments.
