    That's a beauty DB. Colour and composition and the crisp thin focal plane. Its an painterly image.

    Thanks Dave. Reading your description of "painterly" was an a-ha moment. I take it as a high compliment.
    I do like the dreamlike, silky quality it has. Not perfectly sharp even in the sharpest area, but I was quite pleased.
    The picture was taken with and old Sears lens adapted to the camera and fully manually taken.

    Dam Glen. Those are spectacular!

    Why are you in HVAC? Should be shooting landscape for National Geographic or something.

    Thanks Roger. Wether you realize it or not, you, some other photography fans here, and this site are mostly the reason for my fully re embracing photography.
    When I completed the two year photography degree at the community College back in the late 90s, it was at a time of life where I needed to be a provider and not a dreamer. HVAC was steady. Chasing photography pursuits likely wouldn't have been.

    The Riding Game and Anyone Go For a Ride Today threads were the beginning of my frustration with sub par cameras / cell phones.. Picture Of The Week Game was enough to push me over and start looking for a good camera. The last two years have been a lovely journey of learning and exploring imagery. There was a pretty significant learning curve for me going from film to digital.

    I thank you and all involved.

    Yes. I'm planning to do one more contest to "complete the circle" of entering all 4 seasons.
    Being that I'm a glutton for punishment I'm planning on using a shot done with an adapted lens.
    I just got back. I certainly didn't plan to walk the whole 5 mile loop.. I'm tired. It may have been worth it though. The other side of the park is a wooded area and it was a nice change of scenery. I don't generally do well photographing in the woods, but I may have gotten a few nice detail shots.

    Consistently fine images DB. I'm curious about how many you shoot on an average walk.
    My pic keeper rate might optimistically be 1/50+, if I'm not too choosey.
