    I gave up on the impressionistic photography that I was trying. It's just too damn cold here to go out scouting for the best scenery. So I've reverted back to one of my favorite subjects:

    This is a very cool shot. Nice bokeh!

    My wife and I went geocaching in the Eastern plains of NM this past weekend, and I decided to do a bit of experimentation. These aren't the greatest shots, but here are a few anyway...

    Will, I like that wider angle perspective of your selfie. Cool context.

    Brian, I can just feel the vastness of that first show. Nice series.

    Jtimmer, you're just a few hours east of me (Grand Rapids). I'd love to get over to see that Fisher Building. You've captured it well.

    seanlancaster, check the Pure Detroit site for tour information.Tours every Saturday of the Guardian Building and Fisher Building. The history of the Fisher Building is worth the tour alone.

    Thanks, Sean! Much Appreciated

    Agreed with Sean on the Fisher Building shots. Architecture was my first love, and I really appreciate good -- nay, excellent shots of it. Makes me want to visit Detroit! ... Great dog shots too!

    Great dog shots. I have some free time next month so I'll check out the tour info to make it over to Detroit. Thanks for the info.

    Killer frames guys, thanks for sharing!

    @BrianC - Great shots with some serious variety! That leaning Barn is a killer and I like the Edge landscape as well Birds are always fun to watch and these guys honk by where we live....

    @Will - That is a really awesome selfie! I like the framing a lot, and the bright exposure w/ interior makes the image pop that much more.

    @Jtimmer - Nice depth to all of these frames and I think the last one is my favorite! I love the dog shots and I used to have a Sadie as well back int he day The couch pose is excellent...

    Excellent pictures. The first two nearly touching the ceiling are vertigo-inducing

    I also liked your dog pictures. Very well done!

    I like both the picture (sepia creates a vintage look) and the subject. Interestingly, the roof siding is straight but the inclined part matches the barn walls! Wonder if the place as seen a tornado or two too many?

    More nice examples of what can be done with BW. Agree with both of Stef's posts above. Really like the perspectives used for the Fisher building shots. Also enjoy the unique perspective in Will's shot in the car.

    Thanks, Stef! I rather like the sepia look as well. Vintage to go with my old glass and body, too. <g> Good observation on the roof and walls. Curiously, the location isn't in tornado alley per se, but does occasionally get a tornado. I attribute it to the prevailing wind -- you should see the tree flagging in the area!

    Way cool shot of a chiminea, Willie! Almost like it is heading into a wormhole Surprised, though there is no good reason to be, that you guys have chimineas all over the place in St. Pete like we do here.

    Great Anhinga shot below, too. Agreed with Stef on that post.

    Obelix, looks like you got some really nice sharpness on that shot.

    Speaking of sharpness, I cannot say enough good things about the Rokinon 135/2 (or Samyang). This is wide open at f/2 and 1/160 and ISO 1000:

    I just took this one while eating out with my son. He shot me with his straw wrapper as a protest for snapping this photo. I probably should have stopped down slightly. I had indirect sunlight coming in from the wall of windows behind me so I had room to fiddle with aperture. Ah well.

    @ Obelix - really good results with that powerzoom - great detail on the caliper, very sharp. Think that's where I use than lens most often, right around 30mm.
    @ Sean - you really have a great eye/feel for portraiture, very nice shots.
    @ Tikcus - great shot and the red really makes it pop.
    @ Dragion - nice shot, looks like maybe an end to this winter

    thanks for sharing,
