But my sony, I've had 6 months and it's SO dirty, I'm currently cloning spots of 1000000000000 portraits right now. Is this just bad luck or does the sensor...

    Stars over Blanco River + (accidental light painting)

    The stars were incredible last night so my son and I headed down to the neighborhood river park and set up the tripod for some shots. We were listening for cars to avoid headlights in our shot but one snuck up on us at the most PERFECT time and highlighted the cliff behind. Which one do you like...

    Drive by photography

    On a recent thread I mentioned that when on road trips with the kids we try to stop as least as possible. But photography is in my blood and I can't help but to take photos of the sights.
