Thanksgiving_dinner.jpg
Thanksgiving DinnerI had the idea to capture the beautiful table my Mom set for Thanksgiving dinner then capture everyone eating and then the empty table after. However, I was at another table and so enjoyed the food, I forgot to take the 'eating' picture. So, the center one was taken today (Sunday) with the leftover Thanksgiving turkey casserole :-) Not real happy with light in any of these as the porch gets hot spots of light streaming through the windows. But, it was fun.

Carousel_Triptych.jpg
CarouselWell, this was quite the challenging assignment and I learned a lot about what NOT to do - like choose a moving object such as a carousel that has moving parts that go up and down as well as around and never seem to end up in the same place. But at least I was able to go back to instructions from Dave (from the triptych assignment) about how to create a triptych on SplashUp so I also learned to do that! Thanks, Dave! The middle shot was just before 5 and the animals were in sun - not sure why the background ended up so dark. The first one was this morning and the last one was early afternoon -- 2ish. I'm not sure how to retain the file information on these images once they are in the triptych. Keith, do you need that info?
Street_Light_Triptych.jpg
Same Street Light...The first shot was about 4:30 or so Friday. I managed to catch the airplane, tiny though it may be. So when the early morning shot around 7:30 am showed contrails, I was pretty excited, though I realize I could have done some further cropping and editing, and I didn't get in exactly the same position each time. The 3rd image was around 2 or so this afternoon - grey sky gave way to patches of blue, but alas, no aircraft - not even a bird - flew my way!

trees in the morning mistWith a bad cough and flue I did not feel adventurous enough to brave the cold outside. So I took those photos from my study window using my zoom to the limit. I was surprised how small the contrast was and I enhanced it a bit later - on all 3 pictures
