Weather is here, wish you were beautiful.

Capital City postcard Capital City Postcard

ISO 200
f3.8
exp 1/2.5

Cropped to get some of the crappy trees out of there. I desaturated the green and yellow channels a bit to reduce this weird icky glow coming off the columns and put on a light sepia filter to warm it up.

The f-stop and exp are weird because I was without tripod so I needed as quick an exposure as possible. I'm surprised it came out as sharp as it is.


Took this the evening of the Taste of Madison, last Saturday. This picture was powered by the voted best chicken wings in the city - Bourbon Street Grill. They were really good but their hot sauce sucked.
Saving for web killed much of the color depth. Still, nice picture but won't be going in my portfolio.

It is a nice picture.

Why not into the portfolio?

You should make a post with all the pics you're thinking of putting in your portfolio.

Because it's a little soft around the edges. I'd want a sharper image if I'm putting it in my portfolio, few flaws as possible.

I will eventually. I'll probably even do a poll about which "maybe" pics should go in there along with a "wehy the hell aren't you putting 'X' in there" field. :) Write in campaign.

I would like to get this shot again with my tripod. I could do a much, much, much smaller aperture and get far more detail.

You should. It would be cool.

See, now you're blasting on the "save for web"

Back at ya. :)

(it seems to have problems with intense dark gradients)

First time I've noticed a big difference. Yup, it's the gradient of the sky. Subtle color shifts are the culprit which many of my photos to date haven't had as much.

Untrue. Theft makes everything better. Especially pie.
assfingers From: assfingers Date: September 7th, 2006 03:45 pm (UTC) (Link)
I want some stolen pie.
abmann From: abmann Date: September 7th, 2006 03:52 pm (UTC) (Link)
Me too. I'll be in Middleton tonight where exists Hubbard Ave. Diner. THey offer 30 some pies. Very, very good stuff. :) I think I'm going to get pie tonight.
assfingers From: assfingers Date: September 7th, 2006 03:58 pm (UTC) (Link)
THEY WERE CLOSED ON LABOR DAY I WAS GOING TO HAVE THEIR PIE I HATE YOU MAYBE YOU'LL GET HIT BY A BUS

You could always meet him at Hubbard...
abmann From: abmann Date: September 7th, 2006 04:01 pm (UTC) (Link)
That would require a trip to THE 'BURBS! and he's lazy.
GUESS I'LL JUST EAT ALL THE PIE MYSELF.

bowling negates this possibility.

I shall instead be jealous of him forever.

Mmm. pie.

In other news, some really attractive women keep walking by my office today.

You can't top me in that category, man-o.

it's still summer, the students just came back, and I work at the Union.

I will let you put the pieces together there.
abmann From: abmann Date: September 7th, 2006 04:23 pm (UTC) (Link)
True. Very true.

Got a chance with any of them?

Where do you bowl?
assfingers From: assfingers Date: September 7th, 2006 04:31 pm (UTC) (Link)
Schwoegler's!

also: no, and I don't want a chance with any of them!

My god, that shot looks like something you'd expect to see on a motivational poster.
abmann From: abmann Date: September 7th, 2006 05:06 pm (UTC) (Link)
If you give it a good and funny motivational quote, I'll include it in the picture's frame next to my signature. :)
