    Went on a trip to Winston-Salem Friday, and was more hurried than I like, but I managed to snap these off. I took my M50mm f/1.7, DA 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 , and Soligor 70-222mm f/3.5.

    [​IMG]
    1: Taken with Soligor

    [​IMG]
    2: Taken with M-50mm wide open

    [​IMG]
    3: Also taken with M 50mm wide open

    [​IMG]
    4: Yep, you guessed it, M 50mm wide open (I know its tilted but to straighten it crops off the bottom of the glass)

    [​IMG]
    5: Again, M 50mm, but stopped down to f/5.6, I think

    [​IMG]
    6: A bit of abstractness, with (of course) M 50mm wide open

    [​IMG]
    7: The wonders of SR, this was a 1/8 sec exposure while walking!

    [​IMG]
    8: M 50mm again

    [​IMG]
    9: I know, another boring water shot, M50mm

    [​IMG]
    10: Inside the darkroom, M50mm wide open, high ISO plus crop equals graininess

    [​IMG]
    11: M50mm again

    [​IMG]
    12: Taken with Soligor 70-222mm at 222mm at f/3.5, I believe

    [​IMG]
    13: Taken with DA 18-55mm at 43mm, f/4.5

    Hope I posted enough pictures, lol. Not many WOW pictures, but I felt they turned out and I am happy, and had fun in NC.

    Thanks for looking,

    RD

    I found a face in the first water glass..... in the water left hand side..... yea

    I love the darkroom shot simply because of the colors.
    I also like the last shot of the bridge, however i would have liked it a lot more if you had shot down the center instead of off to the side...

    Interesting series. My fave is the last shot (such a warm glow to the wood, and all those great lines of the wood beams!) I like the angle from which you took it. I also like shot 8, but wish you hadn't cut off the bit of the chair leg as that's distracting to my eye. Image 7 has great 'curves' to it, but is a bit soft.

    Thanks everyone,
    Photoadder, the reason it is soft is that it was taken with a 1/8 sec exposure handheld while walking. I think it turned out amazing under those conditions. I was with a group and feeling rushed, but if I would go back, I would take a monopod.

    It's possible to straighten 4, I did, and also edited it a little.

    With your permission, I'll post it here.

    So, in GIMP, I rotated by -2.5 degress and then I messed with curves.

    Oh. And added the text, obviously.
