    Photos From Arkansas

    Ok, I saw the threads on photos from Poland and Germany, so I figure I'd post one on Arkansas Just to let you guys know, I got my first "real" digital camera for Christmas this year, so I've been trying it out. I say "real" because the ones I had before were CRAP! Anyway, I got an Olympus C-765. It was a good deal. In other words, it was the best thing I could afford. So, yeah, now that that's said, here's the story and pictures.

    I was on my computer this morning and noticed that it was really foggy outside, but the neighbor's nightlight looked cool shinning in it, so I decided to take a few pics. I got my tripod out, opened up my window, and started snapping them off.

    This is of the neighbor's nightlight shinning through the pines.

    These are some cars going by on the highway. I thought it kind of looked like that space ship from Close Encounters opening up. That’s not a deer; it’s a mailbox for any of you wondering.

    This is of my front yard with our nightlight in the top left corner and cars going by. I went out on my front porch to get this shot, barefoot I may add, on cold concrete. I really like the colors in this one.

    Also taken off of my front porch of some dogwoods with a car going by in the background.

    Just to change it up a bit, this is a Northern mockingbird that was in our dogwood trees around Christmas. We got a snow and it just seemed odd being there. I never really thought of them being around in winter, or eating berries. It was all fluffed out trying to keep warm and just begged for its picture to be taken.

    These pics have been reduced in size for space on my site. Just for the record, we don't go barefoot here all the time. Even though I went out on cold concrete barefoot, well, sometimes nature can't wait for you to find your shoes.

    Hey man, nice shots. The last one in particular.

    However, I thought the last one could do with a contrast adjustment in photoshop, so I've done a little example to show how much better it could be:

    I personally think that small change improved it a lot, but sorry if you don't approve of my tampering.

    Thanks for the replies guys. Yeah, I kind of thought that thing blended into the background too much, but didn't really know what I could do to bring that out. I'll keep that in mind from now on.
