[QUOTE=Christopher;352508]Another one just finished. It is part from a much bigger Pano, but I liked it a lot so I made this one.

I find the water reflections fascinating; I would be tempted to print an image with only the water. I am mystified by the orange strip on the left side of the reflection. I can not find its origin in the skyline.
Just a quick one from today, Leaf AFI Zeiss 250mm F16 / Aptus II 7
When the next snow fall hits, we should be in full fall color swing. I can't wait.

Nice shots Steven. How come you get to live in these cool places? How's the new system? Here is one from last summer. An approaching storm in the Badlands, SD. Nothing special, but what interests me are the cloud patterns. I've seen faces in clouds before, but this one seems devilish.
Dittos, love the dramatic sky and light in that shot.
Magnificent! Great color, detail, and composition. With that hint of blue sky in the upper right and dark clouds in the upper left, I almost want to see more of the sky. I can't wait to see your captures of fall color in the Rockies. Hope I can join you one of these days.

Thanks Paul and Jack. I must say given the terrain and weather I should have been able to do better.
Another cloud shot: There was a front that moved through yesterday (W. New York). As Bill and anyone who spends time on the Great Lakes knows, weather systems can appear rapidly and with considerable violence. The incoming front pictured below was taken yesterday around 7 pm (645D, 35mm). When I took this there was a slight breeze and a temperature of about 70 F; within a few minutes, winds were around 35mph accompanied by rain and temperature drops. I'm glad I wasn't on a boat
Note the downdraft causing a lighter colored ripple in the water ahead of the cloud.
Tom, very nice. Awesome clouds ...
WITH H4D-60. SOUTH BOSTON.
Tom, great frontal shot! (And no, I'm not talking about nudity!)
Tarantula in the studio last Saturday.
First pic I've posted here. Hopefully done so correctly.
This photo could have benefitted from tilt-shift for better perspective management of the picture frames, so working on another edit to try and remedy this - but for now, here's Marianna...
Couldn't sleep so working on some images from Thursday night. The reds are terrific right now here in Utah. We have sort of a double fall here. Reds pop sometime in Sept. and as they peak and then fade, the yellows of aspens start to shine into October. (and of course, after the mountains lose their color, you can head to places like Zions in late Oct or early Nov and still get some great color). Here are a couple of ones I like so far ...

Wayne, gorgeous! Great mix of colors. Wild guess, were these near Sundance?
Wayne -- Both are beautiful , love the color with green.
Very dramatic, Bill. Interesting alignment of the clouds with the opening between the landforms.
Thanks Jamie - had to wait for the wind to give me that alignment!
I love the fall shots Wayne. I envy you folks in the west -great natural features in every direction. Great cloud shots Bill. We don't have the mountains or deserts, but we do get fabulous cloud formations in the east.
Thanks for all the kind comments. Here’s another from last week, after the front passed through. A manual stitch of two images. Very surreal color, which I may have overdone in post.

Thanks Bob, I've been hanging around for about a week waiting for the marine layer to move on but it keeps hanging around. This was the first decent morning in several days. I'm giving it one more morning than moving on to Acadia for a day or two.
Bob, wonderful set.
Steven, Ed, Tom, Wayne ... yet another page of gorgeous images! Wow!
Looks like you took this near the botanical gardens. I thought Sydney was a very approachable city photographically speaking. The parks don't close and shut you out at night either.
Where you able to get anything from across the coat hanger bridge?
I have been too ill to keep up, but I have now sent off the pictures for my wife's website. (Rosalind Caplis Dance) but the pictures may not be up till the end of the week. The cartwheel shot was 1/500th no flash and looks OK with slight blur... but due to 400iso and attempts to rectify back lighting the costume is noisy.
It is interesting that the one shot on the website taken with a Hasselblad looks, to me, so much better that the rest,,, in spite of having been downsized to 2MB.
I think any large flash used at a small percentage of it's maximum power gives a short flash.
