    My Wife's Top Shelf This was an experiment to see how well my cheap smartphone could handle a lousy lighting situation with auto-everything (flash off). Answer: not well, but I fixed it up a little bit. Here is the cropped SOOC image. Exposure too bright with badly blown highlights and...

    We have 8 entries from 5 people. Thank you, all! Everybody tried stitching 3 to 5 images. Results were decent to excellent. Part of the problem with stitching this image is that my handheld capture wasn't perfectly centered around the nodal point of the lens. Another problem is that in older...

    An updated look at our dogwood tree and azaleas on this rainy Sunday. I don't think we shall see the Super Flower Blood Moon eclipse through the clouds tonight, so this will have to do.

    Hawaiian Goose, Nene (threatened, tagged) At one time, there were estimated to be fewer than 30 Nene left in the wild. Now there are over 3000, and the status of the Nene has been eased from endangered to threatened.

    I don't have high expectations. I am a contemplative photographer, and often process my images days, weeks, or months after they are captured. I am currently working on images from February.

    First post to a "Today" thread. It was overcast this morning, so we just stayed in and enjoyed a leisurely brunch.

    This is a bump. There is plenty of time to create an entry. You have until the end of Monday. If you do not want to stitch images, just pick one image to use. If you have been meaning to learn how to stitch images, this might be the perfect opportunity. If your image editing tools of choice...

    Helpful hints for Hugin (not just for Bo, who probably knows this stuff already): In Hugin's Fast Panorama Preview window, there is a tab for Projection and another for Drag/Move. You might try different projections (I used “Panini General” for the stitch above, because the the "Cmpr"...

    Thanks, Ken. It was an interesting image to work on. The reconstruction project was a bit complicated, but I just wanted to see if I could do it convincingly. I may have gotten carried away with it. I will pass on one or two pieces of my experience from that effort. First, after cutting and...

    @betamax : I preferred your first entry. The Topaz Oil Paint was interesting, but it made the background brighter and more colorful while softening detail on the bird, which made the subject harder to see. I'm glad you posted the other topaz version, as well. I thought the swirly version was...

    Thanks! We were touring a botanical garden on Kaua’i. My wife was with the group, listening to the tour guide about all the plants, trees, and flowers. And I was always trailing behind the group or wandering off so there wasn’t anyone in the way of my camera. I was just thinking “Oooh...
