    Hello, Victor. Nice images! I will try to give my cents on them:

    #1 - Personally, I think you would have a better result cloning the top left sign out (clone stamp tool), as it is drawing my eyes from the road/buildings to it.

    #2 - Try to raise the lights a little, to show the details hidden in the dark areas.

    I think these could give an improvement to these beautiful images. Thanks for sharing!

    Has been a long time since I have seen razor sharp images such as these. Cool.

    One of the few people who actually walk out there. The only way to get images such as these. Nice series.

    Vista de L.A.  2013


    Sunday, 9Jun2013.
    On my way to Sta Monica beach, detour?
    Lo and behold a parade!
    Took out my lightweight Nikon D5100/55-200mm and fired away!

    Parade and biker babes, how could you pass that up? Very nice. What is that sheer like obstruction above the biker's head in the second shot?

    I do like the freeway exit as it is, it shows exactly LA freeway's with the palms standing next to them.
    Nice set of pictures.

    Hi Victor,

    A nice series of travel shots. What I like most is to see how you use camera settings. My favorite is the first wall in the second series.

    Thanks for sharing.

    Vista de L.A.  2013

    Testing to see if my Nikon D5100 kit lens:18-105mm can produce clear studio style pix.
    Result: I believe it can.

    Ambient light was coming from the window towards her rear end. So we used a reflector ( which was nestled against my knees for support ) to bounce light back to her. I feel that this supporting the reflector also affected how I steadied my cam.

    Used my Nikon D300. lens was @22mm. Aperture mode: f/5.6, 1/13, ISO200. auto WB. pp/viewNX2, helicon filter 5. Sat 13Jul3013

    My mistake was using Aperture mode. A lot of pix were OOF. I should have used Manual mode so I could increase my shutter speed to , maybe 1/125. with the corresponding ISO increase to avoid the OOF pix.
