Lovely colors. :D

Was that taken with Velvia, or was that purely your own post-processing?
Thanks!
I did the post myself in Lightroom. Nothing overly crazy, but it's still pretty impressive just how much Lightroom or another post-processor can do to bring out a photo

Returned to Harper's Ferry, but this time from the Loudon Heights view. I took my 35mmDX (50mm effective) and 80-200mm to try them out. Sadly, this was the PERFECT location for my 14-24mm. But hey, the panorama stitching still worked out pretty well.
Used lightroom to help the colors pop a bit more.

Dragged out my trusty crusty 600L, hung my R3 on it and tried my hand at shooting the blood moon. Out of shooting the blood moon phase of about a hundred shots at various settings, this example was to me one of the more interesting ones in that the stars in the background were visible and round due to the short exposure of 1/2 sec.

early morning at Hisingsbron (Hisingen Bridge), Gothenburg, Sweden. The raise section is hoisted by massive cables and pulleys on the columns. Pretty cool. It was also windy AF this morning. Almost lost my tripod bag :D

Notice I am standing in a pedestrian lane for people and bikes. Gothenburg has tons of extra lanes for pedestrian traffic, as well as excellent public transport options.

Can't decide which color temperature I like better on the bridge overlook (first one is about 6100k, second is 7800k). Was trying to catch the sunrise, but Gothenburg is notoriously cloudy, especially going into the winter months. Still a really neat overlook. Hoping I can get to the archipelago today or tomorrow for sunset.

Awesome! I was too lazy to get myself into the mood to get up early and try to capture the moment.

In other news, I finally put in an order for a large print of one of my images. Hope to all that is good it looks good. :D

Here in Hawaii the blood moon phase started around tenn-ish PM local time so no bloodshot eyes this time around and I ducked back into the house just after the moon passed its zenith where the camera/lens was pointing straight up vertical at the moon at the 12 o'clock position and bumping into the tripod just past zero dark.

I hope the results you're looking for in your print meets your expectations. Kind'a like opening a Christmas present or firing up a killer computer build for the first time don't ya think? ;)

So here it is: photo print on Aluminum backing via White Wall ~ $250 with shipping. (3ft x 1ft) First time printing like this -- the only other print I have is a giant poster triptych I helped my daughter make with her bird shots printed by Mpix -- so I can't really judge it against anything, but I am very happy with it.
