Garden of the Gods #2
Th shot below shows what you can do with HDR... The light was terrible. I was shooting into the sun and the sky was very hazy at the time. But, with 7 brackets, a little processing with Photomatix and some tweaking with Nik's Color Efex and Viveza, I was able to bring out some of the detail from the haze and the shadows to present something a little more interesting than just the original snapshot. Do you think it was worth it? I would love to hear your thoughts if this looks good, if it looks over done, or if it looks OK. Either way, I can take it! ;-)
Peyton Manning (Oakland v Denver, Sept. 30th, 2012)
According to things I've read about getting football shots, if you get a face and the ball in the shot, then it should be good. Well most of the shots I got didn't have either. I realized it's not easy to shoot football games, especially from the seats. However, this is one of the few shots that had both a face and the ball in it. It's not the greatest shot in the world because I would've preferred to see Peyton's number 18 as well, but overall it's not too bad. Here, Peyton's throwing the ball to the running back, Lance Ball, number 35, for a touchdown.
The game was an awesome one! Denver won 37 - 6!
This it a shot I took a few minutes before Michigan-Alabama game at Cowboys Stadium as the University of Michigan Marching Band was on the field. I took this with my new fisheye lens as you can see. It's pretty fun to play with! It's nice to get a whole panorama interior shot of a sports stadium without having to take 7-8 separate shots and try to blend them together. I did notice that there is a little bit of purple fringing around some of the lights so I guess I'll need to be conscious of that in the future.

Below is a picture of Alex Suarez's son that I took during one of Alex's photowalks at the University of Texas.
