Weldon, Hawaii brings many pleasant memories for me, as my husband & I traveled there 7 times. I'm amazed at the starbursts you got with the 50mm!! Very nice indeed!

Walter, nice saddle! I made a hand-tooled saddle many years ago!

That flower is exquisite!

Thanks for the kind words. Hawai'i is addictive, it's great you've had the opportunity to visit so often.

I'm glad I took a flyer on the lens. I haven't really figured out how to use it to best advantage yet but in the right circumstances it's quite sharp, and the starbursts were a pleasant surprise.

Extraordinarily clear day

The humidity is usually pretty high here so even on a typical clear day, objects at a distance aren't all that sharply defined. Today, though, was extra crispy. These are from about 30 minutes before sunset.

You're getting some good use out of your 80-200. Interesting and captivating images for sure.

It was snowing quite a bit today, I took some photos off the deck, tried a different way of processing each tonight. The gray sky had a pretty neat but low contrast cloud pattern in some of these shots.

Probably the least processed, just light level corrections and contrast


Holy cow this one came out sharp. Tone mapped, digital ND gradient filter, levels, contrast corrections.


Circular polarizer, digital ND gradient filter, levels, contrast corrections.
