Ronny, love the shot with the 135mm, pretty, um, bokeh.

Curtis, love your SF shots. Wish I had more time with better weather when I was there. I still have about 500 images to go through, including some my 7-year old niece took with my camera. Girl has talent in spades!

Peter, I will probably be sending you a message soon regarding your post work. I love it! The shot of the P51 is awesome.

Just thought I would give a heads up: http://www.fredmiranda.com/forum/topic/1201925

Nikon just released firmware upgrades for the Nikon D600, D800, D800E, D3, D3X, D3S, D4, D3200 and D7000 DSLR cameras.

How'd you know I have been watching his youtube clips lately? He does like Clarity - lots of Clarity. I don't quite go to the 100% he does. Learned a lot from his stuff, especially about how to use tools in Camera Raw such as the adjustment brushes. I guess the vignette I added to the final frame above is also influenced by his massive use of vignetting.


Lucky guess? I really like his style as well as his teaching. I've learned a lot from him, even though he's a Canon shooter! Have you seen the 15 minute challenge where he's at the aviation park?

Here's another rather dramatic photo taken from beneath the bridge, this time with the 24 f/2.8 N.C. AI'd that was converted in Silver Efex Pro 2.

I love this one. Poor Nikki may thinks she's been forgotten.

I've seen both aviation park episodes - he did a "revisited" second 15 minute at the same site recently with some Canon mirrorless body. My chacne to shoot planes only comes around once a year, at Oshkosh, and most of them are in really nice shape (although the Mustang above is missing a bolt, if you look closely).

Here are a couple of shots taken yesterday with Nikki. I'm still focused on the early part of the day beneath the fog. The first two are from Baker Beach and the last is from the road leading to the Palace of the Legion of Honor.

Beautiful series of the Golden Gate Bridge Curtis, this one and the previous ones.

I was surprised to learn that portions of the bridge over land ride on rubber cushions tended to isolate the bridge from earthquake jolts.

Here is a link to some facts about the bridge.

Golden Gate Bridge Facts

For instance, the weight of the cables and suspender cables is 24,500 TONS...


Thank you for the design detail pictures and the link. As the rubber isolators technology was born in the lates '60, I think the GGB isolators have been placed after the bridge construction, it means they are looking after the bridge.


28-45mm f/4.5 @ 28mm and f/11, I really like this zoom.

I thought a closer look at the cactus plants in black and white might be interesting...

These deserved another look! Is the second shot (B&W) a crop??

No allergies for us but our shoes were covered in a yellow pollen
They were only about 50% in bloom because of the late cold weather but I couldn't tell

Thanks Ray and Georg for the comments.

Georg, I was just reporting what the ultimate specialist on Herculaneum, Dr. Andrew Wallace-Hadrill wrote in his fresh book -
http://www.amazon.com/Herculaneum-Past-Future-Andrew-Wallace-Hadrill/dp/0711231427
Looking at those embedded containers there is no way to put heating on them.
Liquids were stored in amphorae like these ones:
http://www.fuzzytravel.com/jerryott1/pictures/amalfi-coast/307811-amphorae-found.html


Reagan, excellent flowers, liked the most the first and last ones;

Curtis you mastered the little and beautiful 24/2.8 N.C;

Georg, over-processed or not, I liked the "wet stone".

went to the R&D gallery of the NMUSAF today, in between the injection and the bone scan. Foot is still in "the shoe" as it's still swollen enough that I can't put a regular shoe on.

Processed these both the normal way I do, then ran them again through NIK, kept forgetting to change the lens database, so it may or may not be right....

Here is a link to some facts about the bridge.

Golden Gate Bridge Facts

For instance, the weight of the cables and suspender cables is 24,500 TONS...


Being an engineer (though of the aerodynamics type) I can certainly appreciate these images. Interesting to see what parts are bolted/welded (more modern) versus riveted (original). Looks like a lot of earthquake retrofitting has gone on since it was first constructed (note what looks like a vibration damper/flexible support in the third image - the black "squished" thing).

Also looks like there's some rust in them there images too . . .

I bet there's some great close-up graphic-type image possibilities.

Fantastic stuff Curtis!
