Coleman and baby || Canon EOS 40D/EF28-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM @ 70mm | 1/60" | f/5.6 | 200 | Handheld
Lisa wanted to do some prenatal photos, and so on our recent trip to St. George we took an afternoon to shoot a few. The kids were good sports, mostly :). I like the way this one turned out, Coleman is very thoughtful to give the baby a hug and a kiss often, so we wanted to do a close up of him. Needless to say both of the kids are very excited, Lisa is entering the "get this kid out stage" although does want the baby to wait a couple of more weeks, and I'm hopeful everything continues to go as well as it has.

Rolls ||Canon EOS 40D/EF28-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM @ 65mm | 1/640" | f/8 | ISO 400 | Handheld
This was from a work trip to San Francisco in 2008. I was walking along in the Fisherman's Wharf area, and this car was parked on the side of the street. Even though it was in the late afternoon I had to take a couple pictures. I like the way the sun reflected off the headlight and the  blue sky is visible in the highly polished chrome. Still amazed me that it was parked on the side of a busy street! This also was an entry for the Wasatch Camera Club Competition in January. 1st place in the Assigned category (Planes, Trains, and Autos) of my division, it received a 6 and 8 (0-9 scale) from our judges that night. One judge remarked on how he liked that even though you couldn't see the whole car, you knew that it was a really nice expensive car.

Race to the Arc ||Canon EOS 40D/EF28-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM @ 65mm | 10" | f/16 | ISO 100 | Tripod
This one was on a curb across from the street going up to the Arc de Triomphe. I took several shots trying to get one with a nice balance of lights on both sides which proved difficult with the traffic lights. This also was an entry for the Wasatch Camera Club Competition in January. While it did take 2nd place in the Assigned category (Planes, Trains, and Autos) of my division, it didn't get great marks with the judges (6 & 7). There were some really fantastic images in the other divisions, feel free to check them out here: http://www.wasatchcameraclub.com/html/competition/application/competitionResults.php?competitionID=15. I had to laugh when someone from the Camera Club asked me if I had any more Paris pictures, seems I've entered a lot of them in the past several competitions. I'm afraid the answer is yes, I still have a few more 🙂
