Whats a guy to do in all this bad weather? Process recycle bin photos! Haha! I apologize for the poor IQ in some of these. I'm running out of material to process

1. Now this first shot is my rendition of Lodi CA imitating Bosque del Apache. Shot about a week ago, unfortunately my damn camera was in JPG mode, with no High NR set, so the final image (shot in almost no light) suffered a whole lot in IQ. I just LOVED the pose so much I thought oh hell, post it anyway

2. This one WAS from Bosque. Much better

So someone snuck into your home and didn't steal anything - just changed your camera settings... And I thought any good photographer would double check settings before shooting. And your vault is empty because you post a bazillion shots - your vault would probably last normal people a lifetime.

OK enough insults for one post. I don't want to have to go to my "insult" vault.

Another stellar set Conrad. Your jpeg is still nice, and the rest are very good. Really too many good ones to pick, but, for me, the BCNH stands out from the crowd ~ Ron

Last 3 are super, with Rodeo Beach getting my nod. Lots of good stuff sitting in your vault. Nothing I wouldn't mind in mine (not that that is saying much).

Pretty nice for rejects. I like the first one too -- there is more to life than IQ. (Sometimes.)
