A couple of shots
Camera: K-7 
Posted By: slowpez, 01-17-2011, 10:12 AM

The first was taken at F-22 (for some odd reason) 0.7s ISO 100 with a DA 16-45 at or near sunset.

The second was another scene from Watkins Glen in New York. It was taken F-6.3 at 0.6s ISO 100 with the DA 55-300

Hope you enjoy them. C&C always welcome.

Love the contrast with the green moss and waterfall.

The first image captures a perfect moment in time. What a great place to be on a summer afternoon. I love the light...

Slowpez these are lovely. The first with the empty benches and busy city in the background whispers 'retreat'... and the second is stunning. I don't know a lot about the technical side of things but I do recognize that picture as special in the way you have made the waterfall look by s l o w i n g down the shutterspeed, juxtaposed with the lively green moss. Very nice contrasts in both, both in feel and conent.

Both are wonderful photos, I especially like the bench, something I always look forward to on our walks. My wife says I enjoy sitting because I am out of shape, the real reason of course is to reflect upon the beauty of the area..and that is what I am sticking with. thanks for the view Bob

Susan - despite your youth - you really know what you're doing with a camera. Both of these pics are truly remarkable - the second one is amazing.

You've got a good eye Susan.
#2 is a nice juxtaposition of crisp colourful detail with soft curves in the background.
Well done.

I like the composition of the first one, but it doesn't seem to be as sharp as it should be - did you use a tripod? The second shot is lovely use of a long exposure on a waterfall.

Nice job Susan.
Both spell "relaxation" - each in their own way.
I'd love to be sitting at either spot.....

Thank you everyone. You all have made my day. I see what you are talking about Rob, the first one does look a little soft now that you mention it. I did use a tripod (I never leave home without it). Maybe the conversion did something?
Jer, my youth is apparent only if Methuselah is standing next to me. HA!
