On Sunday I went to Centennial Park, to see if any of the leaves had changed.

Short answer: Not many.

The lake in the mountains. Yes, it has a beach!

Part 3 and 4 are the same lake, just from different sides/angles.

These pictures are from Cunningham Falls state park. This is the waterfall, and the path leading up to it.

Subject:October 3, 2006: lunch break
Time:11:06 pm
On my lunch break I snapped a few pictures outside my building. With the changing leaves, I added an "autumn" tag to this round of pictures.

Minor retouching for contrast took place, and the pics are scaled down to 40%.

Five pictures, ~900 KB behind the cutCollapse )

This is the last set. Other than being scaled down, no retouching or photo manipulation has taken place. I'm thrilled by how well these turned out!

Part 3. Approx 800 KB behind cutCollapse )
Note: These are my normal 40% scaling.

I paid another trip to the lake today. The weather was nice and I ended up with hundreds of great pictures. Here are some of the highlights:

Due to a minor schedule change, I was scheduled to go into work an hour later than normal. Rather than mess up my sleep schedule, I went around the apartment and took some pics.

Fear the cut -- about 1.7 MB. Dial up users have been warned!!Collapse )

These pictures were taken in late July, in full midday sun.

Only a couple turned out well directly out of the camera. I learned a few new digital enhancement techniques, and what were muddy and unusable pics are now "decent". A little bit of the mood I was trying to capture was lost, but it's a worthwhile trade.

Approx 700 KB behind the cutCollapse )

The weather was overcast and drizzly, with the potential for heavy rain. I went to a nearby late -- the same one as these pics -- to hopefully seem water "wooshing" down the dam.

No such luck.

I did manage to get a few decent pictures in. Because of the extreme contrast, I had to digitally massage the curves and levels on some of them.

Approx 1.1 MB behind the cut. Dial-uppers will need about 4 minutes.Collapse )

After a brief rainstorm, I took advantage of the evening sun for a few pictures. All are scaled down, except the last one -- it's a crop.

Subject:Side by side
Time:05:12 pm
One of the reasons I stopped taking pictures was because my old digital camera just did not take good pictures. Decent ones, occasionally. Good ones? No.

I put the Powershot and the IO-Magic cameras literally side by side. No settings on the Powershot were changed from Automatic, other than setting the resolution to 1024x768.

Yes, I've posted this in my personal journal.

About 800 KB under the cut, 1024x768 images Collapse )

I can get much, much better pictures out of the Powershot without even trying.

I was walking around my apartment (and around my friend's house for the last two pics), and got these shots.

I've got comments on a few.

Again from the walk....

Unlike the previous post, these aren't scaled down; I cropped the images so you're getting effectively a pixel-level zoom. I wasn't using the highest quality setting on the camera, and it shows a little bit.

Still, I think they turned out decently.

_Fairly_ dial up friendly - 300 KB behind the cut Collapse )

I took a walk around one of the lakes a little ways from my house.

All images are scaled down 40% in each dimension, and quality has been reduced to speed up DLs.

Dial up users beware -- over 1.5 megabytesCollapse )

Edit: I reduced the images down to 40%. It's manageable for slower connections, but better than the mangling Photobucket would yield.
