This photo is a change of pace from the normally sun-drenched Sicilian coast. The beach resort town of Lido Rossello on the southern coast can be seen in the distance as the dark clouds roll in.

Abstract The fresh breath of art
Posted By Workingdog
Replies: 1
Views: 409
The place is Gibellina, Sicily; a town that was destroyed by earthquake in 1968. The people abandoned it and built a new town several kilometers away. Photo shows several different forms of art. The first in the foreground is Il Cretto di Burri. Artist Alberto Burri created a huge piece of landscape art by burying the abandoned town in concrete about 5 feet thick while preserving the streetscape of the town. The second is the street art in the background. There was no graffiti that I saw defacing Il Cretto but some nearby buildings that were partially standing were used as canvasses by street artists. The loose translation of the text on the man's hat is: "What would man be without the fresh breath of art." The third is the scene that I chose to show from my perspective. A man peering almost voyeur-like into Burri's Il Cretto. I really like this photo and I hope you do too.

Travel Enzo a Mare

Enzo a Mare is a wonderful fresh seafood restaurant located on the beach in the small town of Punta Secca, Sicily. It is regularly featured in the Sicilian television series, "Inspector Montalbano". It is one of Commissario Salvo Montalbano's favorite places to eat, usually with a beautiful woman. My wife and I enjoyed a great lunch here where we met a nice couple from Great Britain who were also fans of the series.

Last year my wife and I vacationed in Sicily for one month. This photo was taken from the church of Sana Maria della Scale (St. Mary of the Steps). It is aptly named as one needs to climb a few hundred steps to get to this vantage point. The city of Ragusa Ibla is beautiful by night.

Night Comet Lovejoy

It was a beautiful, clear and very cold night. I was able to spot the comet with binoculars. Had a tough time locating it in the viewfinder and even after finding it this was the best I could do with no special tracking equipment. If I get another clear night I'll bump up the ISO to 2000 with a 5 second exposure and see what I get.

Earlier this year a mantis case hatched and there was an army of .25 inch (6mm) critters running around. Spotted this guy a few weeks ago on a low bush. He gave me enough time to grab my tripod, set up and snap a few shots.

It's a very nice product indeed. Purposely shot at ISO 2000 to see if I could get something decent. Used PSP X6 RAW converter and Topaz Denoise.

Laptop display for photo editing
Posted By Workingdog
Replies: 14
Views: 2,565
I know that a laptop is not going to have the optimal display for photo editing but I need some input on which of the following 2 displays on the HP Envy laptop platform would be better, overall:
1. 15.6 inch, 1920x1080 (smaller but higher resolution and more generous viewing angles)
2. 17.3 inch, 1600x900 (larger but lower resolution and more sensitive to viewing angle)
Cost difference is not relevant.

Your input, experience, and opinions are appreciated. Thank you.

She was black as the night. The snow was whiter than white. These were some tough shooting conditions. Only a few keepers and this is probably the best.

Some geese enjoying a morning on the water. Despite the long stretch of low temperatures the creek isn't frozen, just slushy. The geese don't seem to mind.

There was a different kind of bird flying up and down the creek tonight. He was mostly at treetop level but at one point he dropped below the treetops and was only about 20 feet off the water, about eye level from my deck. He was in the neighborhood for over an hour. It's usually egrets, blue herons, and the occasional bald eagle.
