Our backyard Japanese Maple

Detail of the leaves in the below shot.

Don't you love Spring? I sure do! Within the last week our little, red Japanese Maple tree blossomed forth with all it's leaves. I took this opportunity to try another panoramic shot. God sure does beautify the earth :)

Nodal Ninja test

This is one of my first panoramic tests using my new pan head called the "Nodal Ninja."
Place? Maymont, Japanese gardens.

Tulips by our mailbox

We planted some tulips by our mailbox — and I shot this with that same 35mm F2 lens mentioned earlier.

Beautiful bokeh

I got to borrow a Nikon 35mm F2 lens and was thrilled to see that it did some beautiful things with that background blur. We planted these new tulips near our mailbox.

Super depth of field

Photoshop has a new feature that processes several photos together at the same time to get extended depth of field. The foreground flowers are only about 3cm from my lens, and the house is like 30 feet. I used a macro lens and shot 9 different photos with varying focal points — all combined to make this one image. Not the prettiest image, but the technology behind it is way cool!
