Fort Lauderdale

This was taken last year during spring break. What I found enlightening was that we had several cameras on this trip, including my K-5 and K20D, but this was taken with my Fujifilm Finepix XP20 waterproof camera.
I had only taken this along for our day at the beach (opting to leave my expensive DSLR's at the hotel) snapped this picture and it turns out was one of our absolute favorites from the whole trip, from my relatively cheap point & shoot, rather than from my fancy DSLR with expensive lenses....
Lightroom says it was originally 3240X4320, 1/680 s at f 6.2 iso 100

Remnants of Winter

My dog Peaches and I went for a little walk on the warm and sunny day and noticed this old cart.
The shot was taken with my Q and the 01 lens @ f/5.6, ISO 125, 1/1000 sec. Processing done in Silkypix and finishing touches in Photoshop.

The second picture was edited in "Perfect Photo Suite 9". Very interesting program.

My MX-1, shooting in HDR mode1 (no cropping, full camera frame)

This is a vintage Westinghouse Hydraulic Generator (exhibit), not in use since about half century ago.

Out of the ordinary image. Absolutely fantastic. OF DID YOU FOOL ME AND USE AN APP TO ACHIEVE THIS UNUSUAL PHOTO?
