New Gadgets Are So Fun...

I recently bought a shutter release cable, and I love it! I have been wanting to photograph fireworks like this for so long, and I was finally able to. These were the first few shots of the SeaWorld fireworks, I actually have some that were even better exposures of the fireworks, but unfortunately the smoke from the explosions was in the way of the shot. I learned to pay attention to wind direction and position yourself accordingly!

 I am quite excited that SeaWorld does fireworks every night, so I don't have to wait an entire year to try this again!

I also shot one of the bay while I was waiting for the fireworks. I did a really long exposure, and I actually love the way it turned out!

Critique Corner...

Last night I uploaded my sunset photograph to The Critique Corner on the Cannon Forum website. After  reading all of the feedback, I have edited my photograph again and here is the result...

Last night I was wondering aloud how to spend my afternoon today, when I was told, "Do something that will make you happy baby, do something that makes you happy." Well I think I succeeded, since I managed to take one of my favorite photos yet!
 I was driving home from work when I was compelled to turn into the parking lot and watch the sunset. I sat for quite some time in the grass, watching and waiting. I was feeling disappointed because I couldn't capture the serenity of the sun setting over the bay, in a way I hadn't already done.So, I stood up and began to walk back to my car, when with one last look over my shoulder at the sunset, this is what I saw. 

Thank you to the wonderful couple that participated!

Just for fun I decided to once again play with some filters...
