08-30-2014 "Fallen Over"  I don't know if the weight of the cap made this mushroom fall over or if it had been there a while.  It caught my eye being in this position.  Thank you so very much for your comments on my photos the last few days. I haven't been able to comment much at all on any of your photos because I've been on the road.  Have another trip today. I will try to do some catch up with comments later.   Donna

08.30.14  Still processing images from the trip.  I had an achy, unfocused day yesterday. Followed by a terrible night last night. I am tired of cancer.
Swirls and striations  Happy Canada Day to my fellow Canuks!  I had a lot of fun down in Canyon X trying to find interesting new perspectives and qualities of light and colour.  Shooting slot canyons requires a tripod, a high f-stop, an ultra wide angle lens, e.g., 12mm-24mm (since they can be very narrow, with hardly enough room for a tripod in some areas), and 3 to 7 stop bracketing to cope with the huge range of light from almost black to bright sunlight.  I did not use HDR processing since I find the results can be a little too artificial, but developed my own technique in Photoshop to deal with the huge range of brightness and darkness.  Other photos of this challenging canyon can be seen here: http://goo.gl/tYIY6y  Since some of your may not have seen this, I am copying the comment that I made mid-day yesterday, which has generated some thoughtful responses.  Communication to fellow smugmuggers, with my apologies to those of you to whom these remarks do not apply. Some of you have been treating the dailies as though it were a competition and have been manipulating the ratings by 'liking' your own photos, and by strategic commenting or withholding comments from photos to affect their rank relative to your own images. It is not a competition, it is about sharing images and techniques, learning from each other, about improving our art, about collegiality, and about learning about the interesting experiences, small and large, that we each have. What we all share in common is a love of photography. Please try to comment on, and like photos based on their merit, not the ranking of the image relative to your own, or popularity of the photographer, or length of time as a member of the dailies. A willingness to provide and accept constructive criticism can help us all to mature in our vision and our art. "A rising tide lifts all boats"!   1/07/14 www.allenfotowild.com

Encore azaleas  Aug 29 My encore azaleas are flowering again, once in the spring and then an "encore" flowering in the fall.
Day 23 - Panorama - taken along a road in Utah not too far from the dam at Lake Powell.  I don't generally post more than one shot a day, but I wanted to participate in the panorama challenge that Art issued, although I had not had a chance to take any recent panos.  I don't remember the exact number of shots included in this pano, but there were at least nine.  As you can see, the scene encompasses both sides of the road.  I combined them using Photoshop CS3.  I did use a tripod.  I have actually blown up one of my panos in a 13 inch x 65 inch size and framed it.  ePengo printed it for me.  This is not the one I had printed.  I couldn't remember which gallery it was in.
Day 115 - Still life with brandy and roses; I've been shooting some still lifes over the last few days and this is one of them.  The detail in the photo shows up much better in a larger size.  It is supposed to be really warm today so my hubby and I may drive down the the Great Sand Dunes to take some photos.  Thanks for all the comments on my Ice and Bubbles image.  I'm looking forward to seeing all of your great images.  Have a great day today!
