    the darn thing is, i think the hard drive with the originals of all of these died.

    I'll post some pics of the Thunderbirds when they come to Hill AFB this June

    OH boy I got to get in on this. I have a Nikon D300 and a D1X and
    This is a picture I took last summer from my balcony with my 80-200mm lense(I use this lense 90% of the time as opposed to my 18-70mm)
    I showed to a photographer friend of mine and he framed it and tidied it up a bit(I never do any editing on my shots outside of possibly resizing em)
    [​IMG]

    In hindsight I probably shoulda resized this for this post.(I plan on having it printed and framed one of these days)

    Hehe, it is the new Studio in Fireburst. Isn't honeyburst limited to the "Standard" models?
    Anyhow the finish looks great, translucent nitrocellulose paint on top of maple that just lets you see the finish of the wood. I just got it and can't get my self to put it down :rockout:

    Maybe Honey burst isn't offered anymore, but I swear that's what my studio is, unless I'm just too old and confused now. lol. Mine is about 10 years old.

    I shot those with a tripod (or course), widest angle possible, in manual mode, lowest ISO (depends on your camera), f11 or around there, in bulb shutter mode. I used a corded remote to hold the shutter open for about 10-15 seconds at a time. every time I caught lightning I let it go and held it again.

    I got my Sony Alpha a few months ago but I didn't get around to posting anything here.

    Anyway, I like these photos.

    Sony Alpha 300, 18-70 lens and 75-300.

    I read about this little tool and I thought everyone should know about it. I only started getting interested in photography recently and I've been wondering what settings other people are using to take their photos. Now I can see exactly what they used.

    Exif viewer allows you to view the exif data of local and remote photos. ... It's pretty damn cool and useful.

    That's a sweet little addon TRIPTEX. And I love that first shot. Were the colors tweaked at all or a filter used?

    No post processing at all and the only filter I have is a UV filter. I did some compensation for the white balance like setting it to Daylight and I turned up the color saturation on the camera. It was even shot @ 1/4000...... Mostly just luck.

    The hardest part is the real finding keepers in the hundreds of pics.
