    In the Clover

    Day 26: July 2010 Photo-a-Day Thread

    Canon 500D, EF 100mm f/2.8L Macro IS USM, 580EX on-camera fill flash, full EXIF, PAD slideshow.

    Too much macro, I know, but we keep having these hazy, humid days. This beetle was really munching on some clover. I haven't been able to identify it. I need to spend more time in bug guide. He/she's about 2cm long or so.

    Cheers,
    Rick

    A Day for the Boats

    Was a bit pressed for time today, so it was "iPhone to the Rescue".

    First up, we have one of the fishing boats that I help look after ...

    I don't think there can ever be too much macro, especially when they are this standard.

    Colin, I don't think I've ever seen a dud photo from you. There is always just enough and no more than it takes to tell the story.

    Portrait of the artist as a Wet Shag.

    My wife captured this photo of me, from the comfort of the front seat of our car, late yesterday. I was in pursuit of the evocative but elusive, misty rainforest shot. Not too sure how it will turn out as I have quite a few raindrop spots to photoshop out.

    Setubal - Portugal

    Shot this morning under very harsh light and worked on the usual programs.
    I did not use any polarizing filter. May be I should as the water has a lot of reflections...

    The "carving" you see at the far right is a cement factory which is gradually eating the mountain (Serra da Arrábida).

    Thanks, Kit - I do hope to have something different today. And I'll quit whining about our hot weather to you folks who are suffering through winter. You can do the same to me in 10 months.

    Cheers,

    Re: A Day for the Boats, Beauty in the Sky, Is it Worth It

    Wonderful shots with a phone, Colin: it shows it's the artist, not the brushes. so will you do like Rob, and give away your 1Ds?

    I love the sky, Kit: cropping with the horizon low works perfectly here. It's good you didn't slavishly follow "the rules."

    It looks wet and miserable, Grant: we do this for "fun," right?

    Cheers,
    Rick

    What iPhone do you have? They are impressive shots for a phone camera. Did you PP them very much?

    Different lens

    Yesterday I shot with the Nikkor 70-210 AF on the D40. Manual focus, but not too bad. Today I swiped ... errr ... borrowed the wife's Quantaray 70-210.

    Incredible shot, Rob. Beautiful detail, wonderful colors, brilliant composition with the close crop. I'll show off my total lack of knowledge again, and guess orchid?

    Re: Setubal - Portugal

    The first is well done, António, but I like the second even better. The darkened sky and the darker colors in the sea (tide out, maybe?) make it a much more interesting composition.

    Cheers,
    Rick

    Inspired by Rob's rubber balls, I felt I should shoot my own;

    Re: Different Lens

    Pops, the first shot really rocks - the delicate feather against the blast of red flowers, with nice bokeh background: it's all there. The second makes me smile, but I must say things are a little cluttered. But I know what it's like: cats do what they do, and the photographer has to deal with it.

    Cheers,
    Rick

    Do I see a new challenge thread coming? Maybe not.

    Nice capture, Dave: how did you light this? It seems to have some light from above, as well as from the direction of the camera.

    Rick

    July Sunset

    We got a fair sunset this evening. Until the late summer thunderstorms start coming in, we don't get much during July.
