I love the effect on the trees, Debbie! They look so cool! I am also glad you weren’t the one at the wheel. That is why I like being a passenger most of the time when we go on road trips. :)

As long as we are submitting – some of the woods near my house where we walk along the Metaghan river. It is beautiful this time of year!

From October 24, 2011

Enjoy from Nova Scotia, Canada! Sheila

Yes, Charles. I have been here a couple of years and I still feel like a ‘tourist’. I have lots of picture of our road trips around this area in my Picasa Public albums (if you click the name of the album, you can get there.) I am in awe of nature and I love to see pictures from all over the world. Your area is stunning as well. Just simply beautiful! It is amazing how our own natural environment can hold so much beauty, isn’t it?

Since we are on the topic of photograpy, has everyone seen the Lytro Camera? Basically you take the photo and then choose the point of focus. Pretty cool stuff. The second link is to their gallery where you can see how it works.

Wayne, that camera technology is pretty amazing. But when I checked out their website a month or so ago and tried to play with the images in high-res, the results were pretty poor. Very grainy.

The stuff on the web site seems to be well behaved for me. Not sure if the issue would be with the camera or the technology on the web site. I would like to have one to play with, but $400 is a bit steep for a new toy.

Wayne, I just went back to the website, and something is definitely different. Before, I was able to view the images full screen, and that’s when the lack of quality became obvious. They must have figured it out and removed that option.

To confirm my suspicions, I did a little research. This is an excerpt from the PC Magazine article about the technology:

It all sounds like a big improvement over normal photography, and it is, but it doesn’t come without tradeoffs, the main one being picture resolution. The nature of light-field photography makes it difficult capture high-resolution images without making the optics extremely complicated. Although Ng says his team has found ways to mitigate the issue, the Lytro camera won’t be competing with others on the market in the megapixel arena.

So probably good for photos targeted to web pages. It will be interesting to see how the technology evolves over time.

Joe, the sad part is people have to wade through the other BS to get to wonderful posts like this.

great pictures all of them :-)

but the first one from Msdeppie does tell a scary story if you havn´t noticed
its not all about taking the picture sometimes you have to create it in your mind
before its possiple …. and in other case … to see the picture in the photo
after you have arived to the dark room ... as I gess that what happen here :-)
congrat´s Msdeppie by seeing it ….......I just think you have inspired me to take up photo-art again

take care
