    Phoenix Botanical Gardens

    Thanks! It's a number of things...yes, that picture is desaturated on everything but the green spectrum.

    Shooting moving objects?

    I'm not sure on the shutter speed. I think it was faster than 1/60 though because it was pretty bright outside. Some of them turned out pretty good, but others were still blurred.

    Some of my mother's new house in AZ

    Yeah, it's really cool. She had it made here in MI and took it back with her when she went home after the holidays. The white outlets and light switches kind of detract from the shot, but there's not a lot I can do about that. I'm going to try to work on them a bit more in PS to get some of that...

    Some of my mother's new house in AZ

    My mom wanted some nice pictures of her new house in Phoenix. Of course "nice" is relative, and I am still very much an amateur. I tried anyway, and took a bunch of shots and made some HDRs for her. Most were taken at -1, 0, +1 EV...some were at -2, 0, +2 EV, and a couple were -4, -2, 0, +2, +4...

    HDR - Painted Ladies SF

    I bet if you lowered the gamma a bit it would look a bit better. That's just my opinion though. I really like the composition, although I do wish those cars and light post weren't there.
