Tokyo House Chef

My old D50 doesn't create full resolution JPG images if you choose to shoot in RAW. This D300 does. Just to see the difference, I set the picture control to "Vivid." I kind of like the color. Wish the composition was better.

I gotta say... the noise at 1000 ISO isn't bad. This was shot with a 50mm f/1.8 lens and no flash.

1947 Stinson 108-3 (Panning)

While waiting for my flight instructor to arrive, I watched this aircraft work the pattern. For a 62 year old aircraft, it looks pretty good.

Lone Oak

When I started editing this, I intended to go black and white, but then decided I liked the yellow and green amidst all the gray.

Field of Gold


Low Clouds

Steve and I got up early and headed west for an hour or so, hoping to find a bit of sun. No such luck.

Sense of Direction

For the past couple of days, I've been watching a series of photography critiques by Zack Arias and it's got me thinking about photography and where I think I want to go with it.


Mute Virgin



I'd been working on this photo for a few minutes and I thought I'd got to the point where I liked it. Then, I zoomed in. Whoa... after spending two years with my 6MP D50, I was not expecting the detail that I'm getting with the D300.
