    Thanks on the sound effects. I tried to get just the right bell sound.
    I added the water last night...it needed water.

    Hey, thanks! Do you still have the shot?

    Nice images on your site, by the way...

    sunrise on Beemerhill

    I love mornings and sunrises. I wish my little point & shoot could have captured the vapors coming from the surface of the coffee in the crisp morning air.

    Saturday we rode out to Davenport for a burger at Whale City Bakery. Then we rode south to Santa Cruz to go for a sundown sail in Monterey Bay. I was wearing my 'stich. As we exited the harbor a boater coming from the opposite direction yelled, "Nice motorcycle suit!"

    I went for a nice ride yesterday in an attempt to find a nice photo. It was probably in the mid 40's when I was out. I DID see one or two other riders out who were not wearing any helmet (or just a peanut shell) who had that "I'm cool!" grimace on their face... or was that "Please send for help, my face is frozen in this position!"?

    Anyhow, I wasn't going to post my photo result, because it didn't come out how I wanted. I was attempting a "wide open road" shot. I took several (at different angles and not all at ground level) but none of them gave that "road goes on forever with no cars on it" look I was going for. FWIW, the road DID go on for quite a long time, with no traffic on it, through wide open farm fields. All the corn is down and the only thing growing is winter wheat... and it's not that tall, yet. Here is one of the shots I took. Rather uninspired, I think (gives me a good reason to try again next week):

    OK I'll confess that this one came from the weekend before the one of this assignment, but it'll have to do:

    I hope Tom gets some help reviewing these photos. About 60 photos this week, and at ten minutes per photo we are talking a bunch of work.

    I enjoyed some of the in depth reviews of some photos of past weeks by various reviewers.

    No kidding... I was thinking the same this morning.

    I vote that he choose 5-10 of the best or most interesting and review only those. We want more participation, but can't tax even Tom with ten hours of reviews!

    We all could help by submitting just one photo.

    Here’s my submission for the week. I’ll spare Tom a little work and offer my own critique. Others (including Tom) are welcome to add their remarks, too. I shot this on my way to church, literally while walking out the back door of my house. It just struck me as “wide open” because of the space between the terrestrial (my neighbor’s roof) and the moon were rather symbolic and obvious—and you can’t get much more open than that. I have a few different angles of this shot, but this one was the first exposure and I’ll leave it at that. I wanted to do a couple things with this shot: capture something appropriate to the theme, capture something simple that required little effort and capture something common in a somewhat less common view (relative to the theme). The trick and flaw of this shot was trying to capture the color of the morning sun, which was still yellowish (on the house) while keeping the moon and sky exposed properly. It’s under exposed about 1 stop. It was shot at ISO 100, 1/320 at f/4.8 with my P&S camera fully zoomed out to about an equivalent of 210 mms. I didn’t use a tripod so I had to shoot at least 1/200th or above to minimize motion blur from handholding. The proper exposure would have been about 1/125th. So to make this shot technically correct, I would have needed a more open aperture, which wasn’t available because f/4.8 is the max on my camera, so my best option should have been increasing the ISO to 200. And as a side note I have no excuse for the under exposure because this was shot facing northwest and the northern sky on a cloudless sunlit day has about 18% reflectance, which is about the same as a grey card—I just was in a hurry and not paying attention.

    Compositionally I was just aiming for the simple geometry of the round moon and triangular roof line, while balancing (poorly) the contrasting yellowish sunlight against a clear blue sky.

    That’s my story…and I’m sticking to it.

    And excellent photos everyone else! It was a banner week.
