New Orleans Street Car in fog with the K5 IIs

One of the shots I have always wanted to get was one of the New Orleans streetcars in fog at night. The first night I arrived in New Orleans there was patchy fog along the Mississippi River bordering the French Quarter... I got lucky. This is one of several shots taken over a period of about an hour and a half. The cars only run every fifteen to twenty minutes or so. I had to wait on the cars and only had a few seconds as each passed... but it was worth it. I had to shoot at a high ISO due to the low light and the need to capture the streetcar without motion bour.

Love the streetcar shot. Very moody.

I've enjoyed watching a variety of birds come to my feeder today. This tufted titmouse looked happy.

My wife

My wife. I had to do a quick headshot for a profile picture. I mounted my Metz 44-AF1 flash up high on a lightstand. Diffuser on, CB wireless trigger and 1/8 power. I did not do alot of editing, just did a little bit of softening using Topaz. Love the K-5 and Tamron 70-200! 1/160 @ f/6.3.
