    Hello everyone,

    I just got back from a magnificent trip through Garibaldi Provincial Park, B.C. The area is just stunning, and I wanted to show you all with some pictures... I brought along my D50, and the standard 18-55 kit lens.

    I'll start off with some macros...

    1. Purple Mountain Flower:

    The first shot looks to me like it was taken on film, it's got that quality about it. The lake shots are nice, too.. for example #6.

    My god these are stunning...

    #2 looks like something out of Doctor Seuss. So I was kind of chuckling until I saw the pine needles... and was like "wow, very nice"... the mist was creepy and soothing at the same time... 5 and 6 were breathtakingly beautiful... and such smooth color tones. The ones of your brother were very cute. Good family keepers on an amazing backdrop.

    The only thing I could possibly say about them is some of the horizons aren't straight, but good lord man ... nice pictures.

    Thanks!

    When I uploaded the pictures into Iphoto, the horizons didn't looks straight to me either... I tried to fix it, but I guess not...

    Its one of those things that somebody else has to look at aswell.

    Wow, nice shots. Looks like you got the exposure dead-on - no blown highlights, no underexposure. Looks like minimal processing, were these pretty much straight out of camera? If so, you had some great light up there!

    Thanks! The light was amazing up there, I realize the difference it makes to have good lighting.

    The only processing I did was maybe a little bit of horizon straightening (even though they aren't completely flat)... I think I also did a bit of noise reduction, and thats it.


    Phazan, in #7, I did not use an off camera flash. The sun was about where he is looking.
