Bringing an old thread to life, new stuff at the bottom.

Here are a couple of my first photo's from less then a year ago. The windmill photo was taken with an Olympus D-595 p&s. I moved up to a Canon A640 in Shutter priority mode for the train. I really couldnt tell you any more info because I'm still learning and can finally as of now shoot manual. I did adjust the curves in photoshop and I think sharpened the train. The original windmill picture is within the frame. I used multiple shots to get the rest of the blades.

The windmill was taken BM (before mast) ;) The camera was taped to a long stick. The train image was taken from an RC helicopter where I flew the aircraft and framed the image.

I've been an artist my entire life, Now I've targeted photography with my talents. Let me have it... What do you think?

Great results. I like the angles, both in the positioning of the camera, and of the angles within the frames themselves.

Well done.

Great captures. The windmill shot would look nice with a barbed wire fence frame.

This is the Fall color Rail Tour, up until 2006 they used the Polar Express train that was used in the movie. It was renamed and Polar Express lettered on the side. However, fall 2006 it had a problem and was setting grass fires every few hundred feet. It passed frequently directly accross the road from our home and we didnt think anything of it. Then I got into photography and its no longer in use. :rolleyes:

Just browsing my old threads... Last year the Steam Locomotive did come back through, trying a different angle with CHDK interval shutter on the A640 I just happened to get this shot. To bad the front seems to be messed up.

At the same time I had a video camera next to the tracks and was shooting with an SLR at a different location.

Heres the latest shot from the mast. Tell me if the old windmill looks weird. the rusty outline makes it look fake, but the scene is real.

Great captures on the Loco..very nice. The old windmill and new solar tell a story of progression.

Also, heres an update on the first windmill photo. Originally the actual picture was inside the frame, I had taken so many photos from that angle that I used another photo to complete the fan. As my photo editing skills improved I ended up using approximately 6 other photos to complete the image.

The actual original.

Of course I'm still using the same laptop and PS7 for editing, so the monitor is not calibrated, just guessing at the colors and exposure.

Any comments or suggestions appreciated.

Wow, bringing up an old thread from my beginnings. I see a few photo links are bad. This is the current image that I assembled from all the photos from the shoot.
