Dude, I've got a rather large feeder in my back yard. Between the finches, sparrows, and red-wing tipped blackbirds, they empty the damn thing in a day. Though some of it does land in the grass under-neath the feeder, which the doves inhale over the span of a couple days.

That's actually the Architecture school. My back was to the art school. They share the courtyard.

It's a vertical panorama shot. I think it was like 3 shots stitched together. the phone does the stitching as well. Lots of cool features on this phone.

No, wasn't me. It's a piece of sheet metal cut and bend. Most likely made in china... Here's another view of it:

Thanks Smile

Since I didn't go anywhere interesting this weekend (even couldn't go to the DaVinci Days Sad) I spend some time in the yard.

More lady bugs.. (*)



Enough of those, now for something different.


"The OTHER Fly"

Some plant life.



And finaly -- in case you're wondering, this is how the 1st pic got taken.



(*) Some of the plants around were pretty badly infested w/ aphids so I got a bag full of lady bugs. They do quite well here...

Meet the harvestman:



While I was taking his picture I noticed something moving, turns out he had a buddy (looked like a mite). So meet the harvestmans parasite:



The 1st shot is a 360x240 crop of the big picture blown up by 200% (plus some heavy contrast, no noise red., and massive sharpening), 2nd one a similar crop from a different picture. Really points out the limits of the lens, the big shot is a 1:1, closest the lens can do. Now I'm pondering getting a more serious macro.. Smile

Yea, would have been some funky photo ops :/ Feel free to visit next year Smile

I found some pics I took the last few years, not really up to par but good for a glimpse.

Poor color, spatial positioning and composition incorrect, no clear subject, focus out and blown exposure highlights....apparently someone was DRUNK when they took these photos Exclamation Mr. Green

Let's see what you make of this Razz

While I was heading back to my car yesterday I walked by a back alley. Normally that's nothing unusual, happens every block when getting around in downtown Corvallis -- this time I really "looked" tho, drove home, grabbed a camera, and went back... Since it was early evening the light was a bit uncooperative, so I decided to go HDR. Here are some preliminary results for your enjoyment Smile

Yea, the alley's were dark and lit very uneven. So I took 3 shots per picture for High Dynamic Range rendering. The HDR picture is then tone mapped to a LDR (ie. "nomal" color range) picture that was fairly evenly lit w/ some extended luminosity for further processing. Most of the "funky" look comes from that last process Smile

These were taken w/ the 14mm lens free hand BTW. Planning on going back w/ a 24mm lens and a tripod to check how that will work.
