    Re: The Very Latest & Greatest Fun w/Digital M Images

    Well while not stunning photography, I do have a post.... first the good stuff...




    Well, things didn't go as well as planned yesterday at the 20 week ultrasound. Everything was moving along nicely, but at the end, the noticed an abnormality in the right lower leg. From there, Jenny and nugget underwent a full battery of additional tests including an amnio. I almost deleted the card.

    Both of us being above 40 and flying solo (no fertility treatments or therapy of any kind), we were very high risk going into this. Earlier screenings were all excellent, so we weren't expecting ANYTHING negative at all.

    Yesterday was a hard day because this was very unexpected and the reaction at the hospital was so severe. In short, the lower right leg below the knee is not developing at the same rate as the rest of the body. That''s what we knew yesterday.

    Today we got a much better and more positive picture. It looks like Nugget's leg bumped up against something that's called a band. It's a stretch of fiber in the womb. In doing so, it may have damaged blood vessels in the leg that lead to a slower development. That being said, the odds of it being a chromesonal or genetic issue are pretty much zero. Secondly the difference at this point is only 5mm which is small, but still significant. In the ultrasound, the right foot is flexed up too much. There will no doubt be some surgery and therapy involved, but considering what it may have been it's not nearly as bad as it seemed or felt yesterday. Also, the right lower leg is still in the 11th percentile for growth. So that's a good thing as well in that it may not be as severe as they were thinking yesterday.

    Otherwise, the baby seems very healthy. And after that surprise yesterday, we decided no more surprises and found out today that Nugget's a girl!

    Nice shots all, Matt. I really love this first one, and the color of the second is mind-boggling.

    Cropped
    FWIW, my vote is for the cropped version. I find the focus (attention) on the boy and pups much more interesting. It is visually pleasing to my eye without the boats and water in the background splitting the attention in the picture.

    . . . . . with this one I would vote for the un-cropped, it tells a story, at least for me, as to why all these men are sitting on a stoop when they look like they come from various lifestyles reflected in their manner of dress.

    Every picture tells a story . . . . .

    . . . . . at least Rod Stewart thought so

    The rusted car was wonderful but my favorite one is . . . . . .



    . . . . . . continuous rain in Seattle, at least that's how it is starting to feel, and the shot of the blue sky, sunshine and beach was Outstanding! A welcome relief!

    I went for a walk in the 3C weather with a pal, it was nice to get outside for once after the winter, and I took some shots of the war memorial in the local civic park

    I was all excited t process these as i thought they would come out nice, but doing the PP actually bummed me out a bit
    this monument had so many names on it and that was just the names from our small city of 70,000 people


    this is a crop of another shot I took of it, processed in Color efex pro

    Thanks Lloyd, the market is a different place at night. Some folks coming and going from the different restaurants in the area, a few people (tourists) roaming around, the cleaning crew which gets the market all scrubbed and ready for the next day, and then the full time street people.


    Anyway the color version . . . . .

    I do agree with you, that is the reason I went with the Black and White version first.

    Dan: Thanks! It is a good looking coat.
    Steve: Thanks. I didn't hear you say "crops", did I?
    Dude: Color Efex Pro is great software. Really cool photo. Brilliant color.
    bluebook: Thank you!
    Lloyd: Good to hear that it's not too serious. When I had the 21mm f/2.8 Zeiss, I never got used to the viewfinder.
    Lloyd: The f/1.0 is a great tool for abstracting.
    Joe: Thanks. I am having fun.
    mAlKhamis: Thank you, sir.
    Mike: Excellent! I love the last one with the lone flower on the wire fence.
    Ceh: Nicely done. Dan's comments brought me back to the photo.
    Ingo: Beautiful photos of Mallorca. I esp. like one with the the rocky coastline
    Gero: Impressive museum and images!
    Ashwin: Excellent photos. I don't remember ever seeing that many people out photographing on campus when I was there. Of course, that was pre-digital.
    Ashwin: Thanks, buddy.Nice seeing you today. Let's get together and do it.
    Ashwin: Don't remember these photos. The last one with the barbed wire's a really strong image.
    Ashwin: Your vault is a wonderful place. "Securing the Beast" and "Counseling Session" are my favs.
    Charles: Thanks!
    Charles: Superb night shots. I'm glad you toughed it out; so, you could share with us.
    Ceh: Great movement and lines. The partial face really works.
    Charles: Thanks, again.
    Jason: Congratulations. Wishing you, your wife and "nugget", the best.
    Lloyd/Steve/Dan: Thank, you, gentlemen!
    Dan: Really cool B & W distillation of the signs. I'm contrary, though: I like the color better. It's still abstract, but livelier.
    Dude: Nice pp. I esp. like the second. WW I or II? Canada did it's share in both.

    Cheers, Matt

    Another nice set Charles. Very moody skies. Those columns (Basalt?) are amazing! Weather cooling, eh? Well, get out there and capture some more of those beautiful Gold Coast women, before the cool weather covers up too much.

    thank you Dan, It was nice to see my favorite mexican painter (Hermenejildo Bustos) side by side with El Greco (another of my all time favorites). Eventhough one is from the 1600's and the other from the early 1800's.

    Charles, another magnificent series. I agree with CEH. Those Aussie ladies that you have over there are quite the lookers...impressive! Your beach series should become a book, I believe. Great, lovely evocative series, that is quite cohesive taken together. Great stuff!

    Well, things didn't go as well as planned yesterday at the 20 week ultrasound. Everything was moving along nicely, but at the end, the noticed an abnormality in the right lower leg. From there, Jenny and nugget underwent a full battery of additional tests including an amnio. I almost deleted the card.

    Both of us being above 40 and flying solo (no fertility treatments or therapy of any kind), we were very high risk going into this. Earlier screenings were all excellent, so we weren't expecting ANYTHING negative at all.

    Yesterday was a hard day because this was very unexpected and the reaction at the hospital was so severe. In short, the lower right leg below the knee is not developing at the same rate as the rest of the body. That''s what we knew yesterday.

    Today we got a much better and more positive picture. It looks like Nugget's leg bumped up against something that's called a band. It's a stretch of fiber in the womb. In doing so, it may have damaged blood vessels in the leg that lead to a slower development. That being said, the odds of it being a chromesonal or genetic issue are pretty much zero. Secondly the difference at this point is only 5mm which is small, but still significant. In the ultrasound, the right foot is flexed up too much. There will no doubt be some surgery and therapy involved, but considering what it may have been it's not nearly as bad as it seemed or felt yesterday. Also, the right lower leg is still in the 11th percentile for growth. So that's a good thing as well in that it may not be as severe as they were thinking yesterday.

    Otherwise, the baby seems very healthy. And after that surprise yesterday, we decided no more surprises and found out today that Nugget's a girl!
    Jason,
    Thanks for sharing this very personal story with us. I wish you the very best of luck, and hopefully these things will work themselves out with the pregancy. I can imagine how stressful that it can be!

    I finally got to see the benefit of a RF not blocking the shot
    I waited a few seconds as the flag was flapping and I knew I grabbed it as it was extended , what a weird feeling compared to the SLR shoot>lcd check>shoot etc

    thanks

    Wow, Mike! What a terrific set. I agree with Charles, I love the processing on #1, and what great catches, each and every one. The makings of a book here.
