It's Supposed To Be A Photoblog!

I'm going back to the photos and I promise no more republishing of any interesting articles...

Let me make good on my promise right now:

Great picture. We don't have trees that pretty here in NJ.

Is that Alton Baker Park by any chance?

It's across the river near Valley River Center Mall.

Ahh. Makes me homesick. Funny I should say that, since Eugene was only my home from '96 to '99, but I do miss it. Love your site. I have a 2 meg Fuji just like yours, but I can't make it sing the way you can. How long, on average, do you usually spend in the "darkroom" of PhotoShop working on images? I've wanted to get a computer with a nice big monitor and a video blaster card and photoshop to be able to play with my pictures, but haven't felt I could invest that much in the hobby (especially since I just invested in a piano).

Keep up the good art!

For each photo, I spend between 5-20 minutes, depending on what I want to accomplish and/or how it's responding to various changes. Some photos will end up with 4 or more different prints. Most of the time I just hit the brightness/contrast and the selective color option or the desaturate button and that's it. I don't know half of what Photoshop can do. I spend most of my time cropping or trimming left and right on my camera so one photo can have 5 different viewpoints. But the camera shots don't always translate to good pictures on the computer. I never know quite what I'm going to get until it's full size. Maybe that's my camera or maybe it's my lack of skills.
