Senor shroon again. HDR as shroons don't move much and the light has a lot of range.
09-27-2011, 09:51 AM
That's an interesting configuration Willard. Well done HDR

Glad you saw this, Skippy. Notice that there is bright sky and forest floor dark and nothing got burned out or muddy.
I do lots of mushroom stuff hdr because these are the usual conditions.

Monnie- Wish I could send you some of our rain. I'm starting to feel a bit like Willard's mushrooms.
Nice HDR Willard. You've got a real natural look here.

Glory, somebody hasn't had enough rain other than west Tejas?
This is one of the best shroon years I have seen because it is soooooo wet.

Go figure, just snapped some shots of mushrooms in our yard. Rain has been non-stop for a while now. These took off.
Used the B&W plugin in Bibble Pro to turn the grass brown and black while leaving the mushrooms their real color. Cool plugin.

Well, I don't have anything as exciting as the previous images. I had a chance to see inside my new townhouse and I took advantage of the opportunity by taking along my trusty Pentax K20D, DA* 16-50 f/2.8, and Sigma P-TTL flash. I could have shown the bathrooms or the empty garage I guess, but I decided on a shot of the kitchen. ;)

Love both shroom shots. We've had a lot of rain in the last week. The mushrooms are popping up everywhere. I'll have to some take some this week.
Steve, love the kitchen.
09-27-2011, 06:51 PM
Willard, yes you have mastered HDR. Now it is time for an old dog to learn new tricks. FIGURE OUT HOW TO ENTER A CHALLENGE. lol
Isaac love the processing on this. Not only do I need macro gear, but more software..........I can't win. :(
Steve love the layout of the kitchen. Just don't like the view from the kitchen sink............:eek: Will be fun to watch you fill up all that space.....................and more space..................
Farnsley Moreman. Spent about 2 hours with Russ Thompson, noted hummingbird expert, this morning.

Jim, that should have been a great time. Watched a PBS nature program on hummers Sun. night. It was different than the old one. 350 species in the Americas and so many beak variations. Was amazing. Wintering ground has changed too. Now some winter over in Gulf area. You and Peg would love the pictures and video they shot.
Is that a female Ruby Throat?
...Is that a female Ruby Throat?
I'm not sure because most of the adults have left already and the yearling males have varing degrees of the red throat band ranging from a few speckels to a narrow full band depending on age I believe.

"Shamrock" - found at Cotehele Quay, Cornwall,UK
Looks kinda stuck there for a while................

Willard - great capture HDR or not
Isaac - thats stunning , you can 'feel' the texture, super colours
Steve - Hope you enjoy your new home, theres plenty of space to start cooking!
Jim - Cracking shot - love the colours and contrasts
Willard, a very nice mushroom image. Love the configuration.
Isaac, that plug-in did a good job on your mushrooms. Great shot.
Steve, I'm envious. A very nice kitchen.
Jim, a lovely hummer on that beautiful bush. It might need some brightness or it could be my monitor.
John, what a nice sailboat. I'd like to take a sail in that one. Very nice. ~~Peg
I found these under our pine trees after 3 1/2 inches of rain. Kentucky does have its share of rain and shrooms too. Since Willard and Isaac started this, I'll add to it. :D ~~Peg

Nice ketch, John........
09-28-2011, 06:22 PM
Love the hummer, Jim. Is that Crimson Sage it's on?
09-28-2011, 06:44 PM
John is that what they mean by dry dock. :-) Guess they won't be going fishing for a while.
Sage, you too. Nice bunch of shroons.
09-30-2011, 04:35 PM
Willard...I shot some shrooms this weekend.....but yours are way better.
Dammit.....and so are yours Isaac.
Steve......It reminds me of the words in a Neil Young song...."A man needs a maid". (This will hurt).
Jim....nice shot, and bird.
John...dry dock or is the tide out ?
Peg....more shrooms....and still better than mine.
09-30-2011, 04:38 PM
A Tree Um.....from yesterdays walkabout.....nope could not find shrooms on the streets on Toronto.....well not the kind that one could easily photograph.
10-01-2011, 01:54 PM
Michael it makes me dizzy. :-)
10-01-2011, 04:22 PM
This is all Willard's fault. :rolleyes:
10-01-2011, 04:33 PM
lol Good one Pat. Guess I need to go a pic of my herd.
10-02-2011, 06:13 AM
It's the darned rain.....shroons are popping up everywhere.
Not to complain, however....it's the thing we have that the Saudis don't: water. I await the time (not that far off) when water is more costly than oil.
10-03-2011, 06:23 PM
Ok here is my herd of shrooms. Didn't get to go out Sat. morning like planed. Mother nature had other ideas. It was so wet when I took these.............have a shot of the pattern from the very top. That is really unusual.
10-03-2011, 06:29 PM
It stopped raining and the Hubster's mowed. So my shrooms are gone until the next rain.
10-03-2011, 06:35 PM
That big puff ball is still out there. It's tucked in an edge and keep wondering when it going to implode. lol It's getting cooler here so they will slow down. Weekend is still looking good.
