finally back to taking pictures again...
Posted By: khardur, 10-26-2008, 06:33 AM

Hey all, just sharing a few pics I took yesterday, plus a portrait I took a few weeks ago for a couple who are getting married next year. With all the stuff going on with my son, I had no time to get out and take pictures - and missed most of the fall foliage... *sigh*

But he's well on his way to a complete recovery and I got a chance to get out yesterday. C&C always welcome.
1 (10-17 fisheye)


2 (10-17 fisheye)


3 (think this was the 40mm Limited)

Number 2 is my favorite. Great angle on the shot. Should be printed.

The first two are probably the best natue use of the 10-17mm I've yet seen! Nice work, esp. #2 with the curving flow of the water. #3 is good too...the light on their faces - nice. Too bad that white thing is in the background.

Glad to hear all is well with your son - my prayers are with you.

Number 2 is something pretty special IMHO.

Is that really a fisheye lens? Isn't that really eqivalent to about 15-28 mm on 35 camera? A fisheye is about 6mm on 35 camera. Personally I don't much like the distortion of fisheye lenses. Too bad I can't see more of your fall images. These are fine images.

yeah, I realized after a few shots the house was an issue. This was more of a mood shot I wanted to take, and after this I change the angle a bit so the house wasn't a distraction.

Thanks JMR.
I guess you could say 15-26 equiv. on a 35mm camera..
Yes, the top two were taken with the fisheye - check out the curve in the water line (where the waterfall hits) - that's actually fairly straight, but the fisheye made it quite round.

That second shot deserves a nice, framed print. Glad you're snapping away again!
