Peyton and Eli

No photo today folks, but last night was the start of the NFL regular season and Peyton Manning put on a show by throwing seven touchdown passes as his Broncos annihilated the Ravens 49 - 27!  What a game!  And to top it off, Eileen has Peyton on her fantasy team!  She's going to be tough to beat if Peyton keeps that up!

So, in honor of Peyton and the start of NFL football, I thought I'd post a couple of funny commercials Peyton did with his brother Eli from DirectTV...  Enjoy.

One more thing... Before you play these videos, be advised that some silly thing will pop-up asking you to either "Download", "Play Now" or "Convert".  Pay no attention to that and just click on the little X in the upper right corner of that white box when it pops-up.  I'm sorry if that happens to you, but it's just more crap in the internet universe to be aware of.

IMHI Thru the Trees

I have posted a couple shots of the Independence Mental Health Institute a while back, but I overlooked this one.  I know it shows the actual hospital way off in the distance, but I liked how the sun shows through the big pine tree on the right.  It casts a pretty cool shadow, too.

As far as processing goes, this shot is comprised of 7 bracketed photos spaced 1 EV apart.  I also used Exposure Fusion in Photomatix instead of Tone Mapping.   I'm really starting to like that way of processing more for landscape-type shots.  It has a more realistic/photographic look to it.  Of course, if texture is your thing, go with Tone Mapping for sure!
