Some More High Altitude Shots

Non-enhanced Colors
Enhanced Colors
A couple more shots from my recent trip from Birmingham to San Antonio via Atlanta. These are both on the Birmingham to Atlanta leg. I'd be interested in whether folks find the first shot or the second to be more appealing, since I've got quite a few photos to edit, and would like to make pictures that folks actually like to look at. As you can probably tell, one of the photos has had the colors "enhanced", and I'm not sure if that's good or bad for a casual shot.

Example from High Above

Somewhere between Birmingham and Atlanta
As mentioned yesterday, I'm working my way though a couple hundred shots I took out the airplane window on my last trip. Not surprisingly, a number of these are having to be deleted or cropped to take out part of the window frame, a bit of wing, some internal reflection, etc. Which is the main problem of shooting with a digital that has a viewfinder but not a through the lens view.

Still, I think even some of the early shots are showing some promise, and the one I've included here gives you a feel of what will be coming. The focus on this one is a bit soft, but I like the composition in general terms. The haze toward the top of the picture is a frequent issue as well. Wonder if there's a software UV filter around somewhere...

Hope you have a great weekend planned

Another Enchanted Rock Photo

Rock formation at Enchanted Rock
Was travelling to Birmingham earlier this week, and so couldn't get to my photo collection to post anything up here. I did get quite a few pictures from the plane on both legs of the trip, and will try to get some of them up here eventually.

Someone had asked about what camera I use. Most of my high resolution photos were taken with a Minolta Dimage 7. However most of my more recent photographs have been with a Phillips "Wearable" Digital Camera. Having the smaller camera, even with the sacrifice in quality, has been a net plus since I'm hardly ever at a place without a camera any more. Plus it's not as distracting if I want to just pop a shot or two.

In the meantime, I've posted another picture from Enchanted Rock that I took earlier this year. Hope you enjoy it!

Weekend Trip

Tree Near the Summit of Enchanted Rock
It's raining fairly steadily today. A fact I cover in somewhat more detail on my text blog. But this Sunday it's supposed to clear up and we're planning to visit Fredericksburg and Enchanted Rock State Park. The picture here is of a tree that has managed to grow on top of this 400 foot high granite outcropping. I think it makes for a rather nice picture

Hope you and yours have a great weekend planned!

Looking Up

Sears Tower from the Street
Today's shot is from last week's trip to Chicago. A rather "intimate" view of the Sears Tower from ground level. Seems to rise up into the clouds!
