Great photo! Somebody was playing with f-stops.

I keep staring at it, it looks like it's about to move.

You make "playing with f-stops" sound so dirty.

Actually, my recollection (this was taken probably 12 years ago) is that the grasshopper was so high off the ground that the only f-stop I could photograph him at and not have camera shake while hand-holding was f/2.8. It worked out well, though because of its perfectly flat face.

Thanks for the compliments you two.

Oh, I've been to those falls, Vally! Aren't they in Mill Creek Falls Scenic Area? If so, I think the bottom of the two falls is Mill Creek Falls and the top one is Barr Creek Falls.

I really like the composition of the ice photo. I dig that diagonal line of ice.

FWIW, a great resource for identifying waterfalls in the Northwest is Waterfalls Northwest. It has helped me quite a bit when I've been trying to figure out which waterfall I've photographed or those I want to photograph.

Impromptu photoshoot, this was the best out of the lot.

I'm thinking of looking into getting a '4reelz' digital camera that allows me to work with apertures and F-stops and light reading. I did much better work with my old Pentax film camera than I do with this 'point and shoot' digital.

I think both the subject and the photograph look great! You did quite well with the lighting. I see what you say about flash not agreeing with your fair skin, but it sure worked well on this shot. For that matter, it's a nice white light rather than the yellowish light that comes from a lot of indoor lighting.

And with your new camera, I hope critiquing might be in your future

I totally agree!!! You look HOT! Go you for embracing it!

(I should probably embrace myself a little too... Perhaps I'll take a pic of my hot outfit for the party this Sunday and post it. We shall see. )

Chili you look HAWT! This picture looks like it belongs in an erotica collection about someone doing a slow steamy striptease for their lover via webcam, or something like that. My circuits just fried and I've gotta go to work in a half hour! No fair...

A few from my trip to the zoo today.

These were taken with a Nikon CoolPix S220
I call this one: Young Love. It's my daughter and my friend's son:

That first photo is absolutely adorable. You couldn't not take that photo.

I love the blue on the Diadema urchin as well. That's not his natural color, but it works really well in that photo.

The sea urchin, the alligator, and the dart frogs (I forgot to add) were my best of the day. I never seem to get much that's decent out of my point and shoot, but the only SLR I have (if I can find it) is 35 mm and I hate paying for developing. So needless to say, I was rather surprised I got anything from it.

here are the dart frogs:

The blue poison dart frog is my favorite species of dart frog, so thanks for posting it

Thanks! I'm going to scan in some of my pictures that I have developed.

This might reignite a passion. Don't know if I should thank you or be pissed.

Okay, testing the size of my scanned pictures.

thanks! I was more fixated on taking the pictures than reading the plaques (I get tunnel vision), but I'm going to guess Cayman because both alligators in the tank were the same size.
