    Great photos, KL. I especially like your "morning" shot.

    I'm glad this thread got bumped again. Excellent shots KL, you have a great eye for framing pictures. Tim, I'm curious what are the open aperture shots of? The first looks like some kind of lights, but I can't tell what the 2nd is?

    I took them all on the highway between Agra and Delhi, India in December, 2007. They're all of passing lights, buildings, cars, etc. I took about 50 shots and then put my dozen favorites on one of my websites: http://www.timboisvert.com

    Even if he forgets to put postage on his mail, it gets there.
    His personality is so magnetic he is unable to carry credit cards.
    The police often question him, just because they find him interesting.
    When he was captured by alien beings, they asked him to probe them.

    The technical aspects of this photo sucked, as I am still learning how to take pictures on manual in order to override the camera defaults and to get what I want. The photo is too blurry and the lines are too smudged. But I liked the composition, so I played with Photoshop to get something interesting.

    Very cool.

    Sure there are some sections that aren't that sharp, but the embossing is pretty effective is some areas especially the center. Like it is a ceramic or metal plate with texture with real depth.

    Very cool.

    BYU vs. AFA pix
    Composition has always come naturally to me. Unfortunately as I have confessed above, the technical aspects elude me, which is why I have been taking so many photos, to try and get better. I am also willing to take pix in really bad light, from the back of the end zone seats, even tho I know the resulting photo will suck.

    Nice family photo. Did you make the outfits for the kids? My mom used to do that some years, and some years not. I guess it depended on how much holiday cheer she wanted to spread.

    Wow. I never thought I'd see a discussion of bokeh on CUF. Wow. You should contribute more.

    An interesting photo happened to me today.


    I was hanging out at temple square and saw this interesting drinking fountain. Of course, being that it is temple square, the fountain is spotless, even though it looks old.

    When I got home and looked through my pictures, I wondered about this fountain so I googled it. Turns out, this company has a monthly photo contest of their drinking fountains (and sometimes their other products)! The photo must show their name (Murdock) clearly, and their product should be presented in various seasons of the year. What are the odds I entered their contest without knowing it.

    Very cool, I would think you have a shot at winning. What can you win a water fountain in your backyard?

Like I said, an hour earlier would have been better. Maybe tomorrow night the same fog will be there.

    I like. I am a sucker for Christmas - I agree with wuap - nice addition to CUF

    From the photo it looks like you prefer white C7's for your exterior illumination. Am I right?
