Re: Photographed TODAY (or Processed today) con't

sharynideas - cool waterdrops
CJ- amazing ears on that bunny. We have tons of dun colored ones here but they don't show up against the grass
Gary - Yoda looks very wise. . Welcome back. That is one cool (and icky, ew!) bug
Palms - my reflexes are nowhere near fast enough to get any bird captures
RooB- I like what you did with those grungy old trucks

I don't know if it was the light or something just clicked. But yesterday early I was walking around and tried this thing I heard about collecting images for HDR processing. I set my camera for auto bracket (+/- 2) and on high speed burst. That way it would take 3x pictures in rapid succession at different exposures.

My dog, Honey, would be chasing this little bunny if I let her off lead. She loves to look for rabbits when we go out in the desert near home. If she does get off leash, she pays no attention to me until she's run out of steam. So far, she hasn't caught a rabbit, thank goodness. I don't let her off-lead often because I don't want her to get hurt or to hurt any critters.

Beatrix Potters Peter Rabbit and Thumper from Bambi started my love of rabbits

Thumper was actually my favorite character in "Bambi", even if he was always getting in trouble with his mama.

Here's my dog Honey with the cat named Bunny (he has markings that look like bunny ears on his head).

Craig got me hooked on trying to photograph bees. Luckily, I've got lots of models thanks to a wildflower garden. Although 3 years ago there wasn't a honeybee to be found around here. Some disease was killing them. This year, thank heavens, they're everywhere.

Shari - love your bees (nice capture of bee activity in 3rd/4th images) and love your flowers. If I was a honeybee, I'd want to be in your garden too.

I'm glad to hear that the honeybee population is rebounding.

Re: Photographed TODAY (or Processed today) con't

My first digital camera, the Olympus 2100 Zoom, was known for its ability to take near-infrared images (with an IR filter such as the R72). When I upgraded to a Fuji zoom and then to the Nikon D40, I kept the Olympus for IR work. Truth is, I haven't used it for a couple of years. While looking up some info on the web a couple of weeks ago, I saw a post about the Nikon D40's ability to shoot infrared images! (Lots of cameras are built to screen-out these frequencies, and I had just assumed (!!!) that the D40 would not allow IR to enter the sensor. My old IR filter didn't fit the D40, of course, but I was able to hand-hold the filter in front of the lens to see if it worked and it did. Got my new IR filter that fits my lens today, and will start practicing again. Here's a sample - if you like white tree leaves, you might want to try it.
If you haven't shot in digital IR, you need to know that the image will probably be very magenta out of the camera. There are a lot of suggested post-processing tips on the net, and channel mixer is often recommended. I like the B/W look, or with a bit of tint.

LOL Favorable reaction and neutral reaction - both willing to see more. Thanks, Shari and Palms - I want to DO more and I'll share some on RPro (maybe in my blog so others don't have to look). I'll let you know when I have more.

Re: Photographed TODAY (or Processed today) con't

CJ-he does look like a bunny! Well IR certainly is interesting
sharynideas-that bee in the air over the poppy is absolutely wonderful
today I got caught out in that wonderful Dutch light with only my point and shoot. :-( That didn't keep me from taking pictures until my battery was dead though.

So what did I do then? I went home and made a room as dark as I could so I could play with my flash. :-) I felt like a complete and total idiot trying to set everything up and make it work together.
