Thanks Lucia! One of the reasons I've been tagging along to the cabin is I am trying to branch out. I obviously like taking photos of dogs (and I do semi-pro for dog events where it's more important to understand the conformation or the sport you are photographing than have top of the line equipment) and "stuff", like actual objects (a flower, a frog, an old schoolhouse....). I've always struggled with landscapes and wider angles because of all the highlights, shadows, different perspectives, I never felt I was getting it right, or what came off the camera looked horrid and not like the scene I remembered...so I'm trying to just get out in the woods more and shoot. For those outdoor photos in the first post, I was using a really cheap lens. I still bring it to life on the computer the way a photographer would while developing the photo. I just find I like that aspect of it more than learning how to become a fantastic "manual" photographer. I've found lately that often it means crawling through the stream with my head tiled at a painful angle or lying in the mud on my belly to get the perspective I want.
brembo the thing is that the experience is still more important to me than the photo. I'd rather spend the $$$ on being able to take the trip than have to save up thousands for new gear. One year I entered a series of photos in an art show and they were all taken with a $99 point and shoot (still one of my favorite cameras to play with and I'm still depressed it got the dreaded "lens error").

Time to pony up and get some equipment, I think you have the skills to put the good stuff to the test.
You frame well and have an eye for interesting subjects. It would be a great excuse to take many many pictures of the dogs.
I'm a horrid photographer. I use a pro-sumer level CoolPix(exchangeable lenses type) and it does fine by me. I picked up my g/f's DSLR (Canon of some ilk) and my pictures came out looking fantastic. Hers was very spendy and as such I'm not allowed to play with it much. With the skills you are displaying I think you would be well served with a suite of high-end equipment.

These are just amazing Lies! You have such an artistic eye, with the skill to bring it out with your camera.
I didn't think it was possible for your pics to get better, they have always been so good, but I feel that you are taking better and better pictures as time goes by.
A bit scary actually that you can keep topping yourself.

|Liesje||I still use a D90 that is slowly falling apart with a variety of cheap lenses. Most of my "work" is done in processing (computer). I don't have a lot of $$$ to spend on photography equipment and I just want a photo to represent what I actually saw.|

I agree with the others......Those pictures are absolutely gorgeous!!!!
What camera and lenses were used, if you don't mind?
Thanks for sharing.

|Liesje||It's very nice! Only problem is no Internet, which is fine for Facebook and such but after a day or so I want to see world news and be sure my husband and dogs are OK!|
