We took a mini-vacation to Mondulkiri province (Cambodia) earlier this week. The highlight was a day spent at a wildlife sanctuary, chasing and looking at these two amazing beasts. Sixty-five year old sisters, or so we're told. Hope you enjoy the images.

I took this shot this morning. We had a break in the weather today, but it was far from beautiful. Still, I went down to the port dock and got several nice photographs, this one being my favorite:

I took this last September and it has been well-recieved by people around here. In fact, it was selected for the cover of a calendar that a local print shop does every year, which features local photographers.
Curiously enough, this was shot with the K-30's in-camera HDR, but I saved the image as a RAW file and worked from that. I don't generally like the JPGs that the K-30 puts out in the in-camera HDR, but I save the good ones as a RAW file and have great results with those.

Why No Criticism of Obama

I've composed anti-Obama screeds, or replies to anti-Romney screeds, many times ... in my head. But, I figure, why bother actually posting them? It's highly unlikely that people on the opposite end of the political spectrum will be swayed by my arguments any more than I am by their constant illiberal & intolerant rants on this forum. So, I keep it to cameras & let the trolls talk to themselves.

Best lens for landscape considering colour rendition

If you're judging a lens by the color of the image, you should always shoot with a "bare lens" — no filter, as stated above. In my experience, it's difficult to get consistent sky color with a CP filter at focal lengths much shorter than 35mm. I like the picture, by the way.

That's an excellent picture from inside our lighthouse here in Newport! How did you get it? I ask because all I've ever been allowed to do was to peek up from the ladder. But with the blue skies & few clouds, it really turned out well. Today we're completely socked in by fog and visibility is less than 50 yards.

Again, really great pic from inside the lighthouse!
