  1. Went on an 11 day hike across the Bailey Range in Olympic National Park. Forest fires had Washington and Oregon smoke filled and created some unusual colors and clouds. These clouds seemed to mimic the sub-alpine fir silhouette. Capture: Fujifilm X-H1, 1/1000 f/5, iso200 Pixelroom: Luminar 2018

    I am always frustrated with moon shots as well. 😂 Photos are the only way I will get to see this eclipse. It wasn't viewable from my location. However, it was full and bright here. 😀

    Water Dragon...

    A combination of Barnes Creek entering the Lake Crescent and the wind blowing waves against the silhouette of the tree root gave me the impression it was a swimming dragon. I also like how the sunset created a convenient X. Capture: Fujifilm X-T1, 6.5s, f/22, iso 100. - Zeiss Touit 12mm - Lee Seven5 Big Stopper, .9 GND soft, Polarizer - B&W-R simulation Pixelroom: On1 PhotoRAW 2018.5

    Lake Relic 01

    If you are on a laptop flip the image over. 😁 I put the center of the reflection at the top of the trees so that when rotated 180° the horizon line would be below the reflection.
  5. The swallow tail is my favorite photograph. 😀

    Lake Relic 01

    A project of mine is to make one shot photographs that appear to have layers or some kind of pixelroom effects applied but are completely done in camera. This was of a tree root floating in a lake. My goal was to make it appear as though two images were stacked. Capture: Fujifilm X-E2, 1/15, f/9, iso 200 - Fujinon XF 55-200mm Pixelroom: PhotoRAW 2017

    Thanks Dallas! I am much happier with this now that it looks like how I captured it. I first did this in LR and could never get it right because of my Fujifilm raf file. PhotoRAW is working much better for me. 😀 My next project is to revisit all my favorite photographs processed in LR and fix them in PR.

    A fallen tree in transition trapped upon the shore of Lake Crescent to be battered by the waves and the weather of Storm King. Olympic National Park.

  9. I am using a Synology DS1517+ NAS as my network and personal cloud drive.This gives me 20tb of cloud storage with a lot of room for expansion. For backup I use portable drives that go into both a fire safety box and safe deposit box at my bank. With Synology Photo Station I can access and edit my photos from anywhere using a phone, pad, or computer. The only limitation is wifi speed when traveling. On1 PhotoRAW and Alien Skin Exposure X3 are working fairly well when I need to process an image this way.

    Fujifilm X-H1

    I was doing fine in resisting the XH1 but a friend at my local camera store happened upon one that had been used for a month and made me a good offer. All my common and typical excuses for waiting on the XT3 faded almost instantly. The button layout, autofocus, grip, along with the feel of the shutter button and its placement only scratch the surface of the improvements made. The image quality and color is much better than my XT2. On paper they may be similar in many features but they are nothing at all alike when it comes to results. I am not a video person which was my hesitation at first with the XH1. It is the stills coming out of this thing that have impressed me. I’m starting to get shaky, unable to handhold a shutter of 1/125 or slower. Even 1/250 is getting difficult for me now. With this camera I am getting tack sharp images with a 1/15 handheld shutter. Blows my mind. Not a big fan of the touchscreen, I really do not like it at all so have turned it off. I hope they don’t put one on the XT3. My only complaint so far is that I can not find an L-Bracket for the XH1 with a battery grip.
  11. You can now mount Nikon and Canon lenses to iPhones. Sony is making a QX lens for them now. Just visit Photojojo and you will see some amazing HW Systems for smartphones. At the speed technology is traveling I doubt it will be long before smartphones begin to equal DSLR's not only in accessories but image quality as well. Smartphones are already being used to control cameras. I use a Triggertrap system for time-lapse and cable release on my X-E2. And I can send photos taken on my X-E2 to my phone. Like it or not, smartphone companies are beginning to push the boundaries of photography.
  12. This is high on my hopes of acquiring. But I will have to wait a little longer before ordering. I have ran out of children to sell (my wife doesn't want anymore) and I have already sold my soul so I guess I will just have to wait. I begin a two week hike in a couple months and I would like to have one by then.
  13. I've read that Nikon has patented an interchangeable sensor. Not sure if it is true or not but I am sure there are a lot of ideas like this that just haven't seen the light of day yet. Unfortunately life revolves around economics today. Monetary gain is placed much higher than social well being and needs. So until a modular camera becomes economically viable I doubt we will get our wish. I used to manufacture bicycles and that really opened my eyes to a side of industry I never knew existed. As long as a camera can continue to give me control over shutter speed, f/stop, ISO, and Strobe sync I am a happy camper.

    Fujifilm X-E2

    The XE2 launched itself into my favorite camera category. There are only two things I miss on this camera and that is the OVF/EVF viewfinder and the PC Sync that I have with the XP1. A radio trigger has fixed the PC Sync issue. I am using my XE2 so much that my XP1 is beginning to collect dust and is an XT1 away from being sent to a shelf with my unused dslr's. Guess I could go into a list of reasons but don't see a point when there are so many eloquently written articles on this subject already.
