This reminds me of one of those clouds you would see somewhere really open, like a prairie.
This week’s assignment was fun and interesting one. It’s amazing all the things you change and do to a picture! I used a photo editing program called Photo Pos Pro, it’s free and pretty easy to use; I love it.
RGB -> BGR. I like this effect!
Since I never did get around to answering my comments on the last Macro post, I’ll just answer the question on this one.
“What the heck is that thing?” Well, it’s a Chinese Chestnut. Very prickly, but the nut is very sweet, and well worth scraping the bitter skin off. The sweetness of the nuts seems to vary tree to tree. The cows and Nick love to munch on the leaves when they can reach them.
I didn’t really have much time to take any pictures this week because I was buried a mountain of school work, but I did find some time to go through the archives.
I love country music with a passion. While some may argue that the new country isn’t country anymore, I love my Johnny, Hank, and Waylon along with the newer artists.
(L to R: Joe Don, Gary, and Jay) My favorite band, Rascal Flatts. This was back before we figured out how to take the date stamp off…. When you’re in the 300 level, the 12x zoom really makes a difference.
I’m going to take a minute to brag about the camera… I must say I was very impressed with the camera. I only used the complete manual setting, where it lets you set the ISO, shutter speed and the aperature, and didn’t use the flash even once. I was a little worried that all my pictures would be blurry because Keith moves around so much. Even though I had semi good results with the automatic settings at the Rascal Flatts concert, I didn’t want to take a chance and have grainy photos. I had the camera set on Landscape, the aperature set on 2.8, and the shutter speed ranged anywhere from 1/8 to 1/30 when there was more light. Sure, there’s motion-blurred ones, but that’s to be expected. This camera is a amazing!! I must have gotten a really good battery because I took nine hundred plus pictures at the concert, and Mom and I had taken like thirty or so pictures earlier in day of canning or whatever and I was too lazy to load them before we left, and it never showed low battery once. I kept waiting for it to come up and have to put a new battery in. It even lasted the twenty some minutes it took to load the pictures on the computer and still go the rest of the day. I wish all the batteries were like that!
Mom said on the way home that I would be too advanced for my digital photography class! Which is probably true, it will still be fun.
A beautiful sunset will make almost anyone happy.
