Two rocks

Uploaded: January 11, 2011


f22, ISO 100, Nikkor 18-70 kit lens, 30 second exposure. Edited in Capture NX2 and PSCS5. I just liked the simple flow here, how calm and quiet it was and the smooth, gold color qualities the water picked up. Taken 8 January 2011 in Mission Trails Regional Park.

Exif: F Number: 22, Exposure Bias Value: 0.00, ExposureTime: 30/1 seconds, Flash: did not fire., ISO: 100, White balance: Manual white balance, FocalLength: 70.00 mm, Model: NIKON D300

This is a nice series Gary. I highly recommend putting it together on a photo board with a title. I am imagining this in my mind. It would make a very nice framed image like that. I wouldn't include the abstract but the others go well together.
Maybe even sell some to a local tourist trap. :O)
Same with your Panda images. You've got some time now, start hitting the pavement and selling yourself!
You can do it!
