Sequoia and Kings Canyon are pretty damn cool. I was just there in October.

Quest for Inspirado: New York edition

I'm going to visit a friend in New York next week and considering using it as an excuse to pick up a new (to me) lens. I currently have a D700, 24-120 f4, 50mm f1.8 AF-D and 85mm f1.8 G ( and my old Dx kit which will not make the journey).

I've been thinking of picking up either a used 16-35mm f4 or a refurb 24mm f1.8. I've looked a bit at the Sigma 24mm Art as well. If I pick up either of these, the 24-120 will be benched for this trip.

I'm leaning towards the 24 prime because I've found that I generally don't end up loving
any of the shots I take with zooms (though I don't own any pro-class zooms). I tend to chalk this up more to zoom induced laziness than the technical rendering characteristics of the lens itself. Thoughts or alternate suggestions on how to scratch the Nikon wide angle itch for sub $1k?

Re: The Photography Thread

Any LA locals - Palos Verdes (Portuguese Bend Preserve) is going bananas right now. I counted 12 different kinds of things blooming and the rest looks like Ireland. Also the views to Catalina have been really clear and the sunsets amazing. I'm headed back out there and try not to forget my polarizer this time (at 2pm there were some cool shots that could have used it).





This is the most advanced thing I've ever tried to do in Photoshop (paint in a non-blown-out sky behind a bunch of flowers sticking up). I was selecting by color channel and all kinds of crazy things. Still needs a lot of work obviously. It looked a lot better in PSD form. The halos only appeared when converting to JPG.

The rest are iPhone photos.

Re: The Photography Thread

I just got back from Patagonia - on another photo tour with Marc Adamus. Amazing trip. I plan to go back next year for a longer tour to some fiords in Chile where no one ever goes. Maybe even drive down my FJ there lol.

Here are the first 2 pics I've worked on. The guy in the mountain pick is Jack Curran - who apparently does pretty well selling B&W prints.
