I have had my G2 for a month now and I have to thank Pekka for my insperation to get into digital photography.
I have been a photographer for many years, and am an Ophthalmic photographer by profession. You will notice as the photos are chronological my use of my other lighting equipent is used. I use the 420 to fire other flash units into home made light boxes.

Nice shots Darrell, thanks for sharing.

You sure have a way with close-ups. The "shell" had such a reflective and mirrored gloss. Really, really nice.
But I can feel land and lakescapes better. I love the grass at sundown. The strong yellow-browns and the red tinges on the tree trunks. Real mood.
My wife and I usually spend a week in the Wilmington area, or at Top Sail. so I will see if I can match your landscapes. Maybe at the rose hall (?) vineyard.

I seem to get this strange feeling of fascination with food. =)

Well done, Darrell!
Beautiful wine shots and all - you obviously have a lot of patience and dedication to pursue the image you're after - shots like http://dkhenry.home.mindspring.com/lastbottle.htm and
http://dkhenry.home.mindspring.com/perfect_pour.htm do not come easy.
If I start looking the gallery in 'extrademanding" mode I see some tiny 'problems' here and there (not in level - http://dkhenry.home.mindspring.com/wine_bottles.htm, light source reflections in many shots) but those really do not take anything off the fine achievement.
Thanks for posting.

Thanks Pekka, it does take time to make, and to think an image through. Lessons learned from many images in the bank. From you, an accomplished photographer in your "short" career of "7 months" with your G1 (I am amazed at the quality and depth of your porfolio) I do take your comments as a great compliment. I am just getting the hang of my new axe. It is great for studio work, but, how the heck do you see anything thru that darned little screen?? In any daylight that has any sun behind me, I can't see much. I am used to SLR and will be going there after my learning curve with digital is tapped. I just received my Oly b300 today, it was fun shooting,(ducks)hard to get the hang of that darned tiny viewing screen. I am thinking of building a tiny little "dark cloth" like I use to use with my view camera to see the ground glass. You would think if I could get used to seeing everything upside down with a view camera that this shouldn't be that hard.
I look forward to all the new things you have coming on the website.
