Hmm, I've been to Stonehenge...I don't remember that. If Harry Potter was shot there, I really should know it...I love Harry Potter.

Yeah, I could have gone a second time this summer, I didn't see a point. First visit, "Look at the big rocks in the circle. Wow, I can't believe ancient people were able to do that..." The second visit I envisioned, "Ah. I see they haven't moved..."

It's an awesome shot - the colors are really somethin' else. Where was this taken?

Thanks! I didn't even setup the shot well. My friend told me it is Newton's tree and King's student verified it and I clicked as quick as I could. We were covering as much ground as possible. So I got totally lucky on this one.

King's College in Cambridge, England.

Really? Huh, who'da thunk it? Well, some of the best pictures are spontaneous like yours. Joe Rosenthal had one of the most famous I can think of - Marines raising the flag at Iwo Jima (love it).

Huh, you're right, who would have thought it would happen? I didn't know about Joe Rosenthal's photo. Interesting. :)

Happy New Year!

When you see photos like this one you inmediatly understand why Newton found inspiration...

So peacefull... so brigth... perfect place to inspire open minds in the search of the answers of the mechanics of the universe.

The only thing that I may have a little problem is the brightness in the upper leaves of the tree... other wise is very good.

Are you a Fuji photographer ???

Alredhead Featured By Owner Dec 23, 2006
Thank you for taking a look and giving me a comment. :)

I see what you are saying about the brightness of the upper leaves. How can I avoid that next time?

Yeah, that's really funny that you know the brand name of my memory card and camera, both are Fuji. Does the card make a difference (other than size...)? I am thinking about selling this camera and getting a Canon Rebel XTi or Sony Alpha A100K. I like the Rebel because of price and I like the A100K because the stabilizer is in the camera, not the focus (unlike Canon and Nikon's D80).

Well... from someone that is in deep love with Fuji I think it makes a difference... Fuji array of pixels is not square but hexagonal allowing slight better density on the sensor (may not be true BUT it makes a lot of sense from the technical point of view).

I have to said that you are a little mislead regarding cameras and stabilization. The stabilization in the camera/software is not as usefull as the external stabilization (lenses).

Currently I use 3 cameras (for different reasons) one Fuji compact, one Olympus with internal stabilization and a Rebel XT with Image Stabilized lenses, by far the best stabilization for the money comes from the lens stabilization.

When you buy a camera you should think in this... your camera will be obsolete in 3 maybe 5 years (optimistically) but the lenses are for ever (well... some people said diamonds are forever but no... TRUE LOVE and LENSES are). When you buy a good lense you can switch it to different cameras from the same family. Canon the L series are just a wonderfull piece of high tech optics.

Though you have an incredible camera with Sony you will be also greatly limited in the optics you can use... also the price will be A LOT higher than the options you can get for Canon or Nikon.

Another point that I don't particularly like is the restrictions you will get by using Sony's memory stick. They have relative small memory in comparison with what you can get with Flash memory (or for that matter a microdrive)... also almost half price.

Final two notes... IF you decide for the Canon I strongly suggest you to buy the body of the camera separated from the lens... the kit lens that came standard with the camera is a piece of garbage. Second but not less importan... drop me a note if you want some links of photography sites with some side by side comparisons.

Now the glow.

The easiest is using a circular polarizer filter... it will blow your mind how a simple piece of glass can help you in simple things like that... ah... there is a bonus... you photos with some sky in the background... will have a rich and intense blue with a lot less wash out colors.

Write soon.


Cheers.

Well, you are just the person I've been hoping to talk to about the cameras. Thank you for the useful information. I'm now going to get the Canon Rebel XTi. It's just waiting for the money (you, that pesky thing called work!). I should have it in mid-January.

Yes, I'm going to go with the body, I don't want to pay money for a crappy lens that will just waste precious space in my apartment. I'm looking at this one: [link]

Sorry I couldn't write sooner. I was cut off from the Internet for a few days while visiting family.

I hope you have a Happy New Year!

I hope you are doing better... and the possible bug is just being tired...

Well... that pesky little thing call work... I have to said is not little... pesky is a little soft to describe it... specially for the chained cannon ball that I have in my ankle, the guy with the drum (playing mambo) and the other gentleman with the wip... ;)

The XTi have a lot of good improvements over the early model of the XT but mostly the self cleaning is the nicest of all... One word of advise about Canon... KEEP ALL THE RECEIPTS and if you are slightly heavy with the hand... absent minded... or predisposed to accidents buy the insurance... that will be money well spend because the repairs by Canon are first EXPENSIVE second they have the tendency to be a little hard to convince if any repairs are needed for the camera without ALL the required documetation...

What type of photography are you going to do mostly ??? By looking your photos I am guessing landscapes and architechture?

I wish you the best for the next year.


Cheers.

I am, thank you. I rested and had soup yesterday. Good stuff.

lol...you made me smile, that's not an easy thing to do over a message or on the net. ;)

Hmm, I didn't know about the self cleaning, cool stuff. Yes, I keep all important receipts.

Yes, mostly landscapes, foliage, and architecture. I want to move to people, but it's tough when your subject keeps moving. ;)

Thank you! And you!
