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 🙂

Things are Looking Up ||Canon EOS 40D/12-24mm @ 12mm | 8" | f/11 | ISO 100 | Tripod
I shot this one night in Paris. I positioned my tripod in the center of the eiffel tower at the bottom and pointed it straight up. It was an OK image in color, although I didn't like the blue coming through in the sky on an 8 second exposure, so I like the black and white rendition better. I also entered this one in the Wasatch Camera Club Competition Open Division and it received a 9 and 8 from the judges (scale of 0-9).

Another one from Paris. I entered this one in the Wasatch Camera Club competition in the Open division and got high marks from the judges. It took 2nd place in the Master Open Division, both judges gave it an 8 (on a scale from 0-9).

Jensen Preview 1 ||Canon EOS 40D/EF70-200mm f/4L USM | 1/125 | f/4 | ISO 100 | Tripod
Finally finished processing some photos for the Jensen Family and had to share this one. Taking photographs of kids can be a lot of fun, and very rewarding since they can be great models. These kids did great.

Paris Lovers ||Canon EOS 40D/EF28-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM | 1/2 | f/8 | ISO 100 | Tripod
We had been at this location for almost an hour trying different shots, and as I was setting this one up, this couple came over and stood right in front of the camera. So, I guess they wanted their picture taken!

Paris Subway ||Canon EOS 40D/12-24mm | 1" | f/8 | ISO 100 | Handheld
Another one of my favorites from Paris. This was shot handheld, and yes it was a one second exposure. I propped myself up against the wall, and used the camera strap to push it away from my body tight. Then I had my wife push the cable release button. I took several shots, and I'm surprised that this one came back fairly clear. Paris has some very neat subway stations. Oh, and it's been over a year since I started my blog! Maybe it's time to do some sort of giveaway to anyone who might still be reading... Maybe we could do a print give away, does that sound like a good idea?

Coleman ||Canon EOS 40D/EF100mm f/2.8 Macro USM | 1/160 | f/2.8 | ISO 100 | H
Wow... I've been away from this for too long, let's continue by first adding a photo of Coleman. I took this back in May when I did pictures of Olivia, and somehow it didn't make it on the blog.
