Halloween 2008- Captain Hammer
I finally got some pictures of my recent hike online. I think I need to tweak the quality a little bit and re-upload them later, but for the most part they're done. Next I'll work on the pictures from vaxjo's party (didn't take quite so many there.)

I found a link on CNN.com that I was going to post but it turned out it was about that guy in California who supposedly killed his pregnant wife, not about the father of a kid I was in Mathletes with who supposedly killed his wife and made it look like she fell down the stairs. (The kid I was in Mathletes with spent some time in a federal penitentiary for trying to blow up some office at Duke University.)

Picture link doesn't work. Can't go look at (presumably) pretty pictures. Very sad.

You (and monstersocks) caught me while I was replacing the lower quality picture set with higher quality pictures.

Everything should be working now. Sorry.

It does work indeed, and they are very nice pictures. I am especially fond of the salamander. And the last fancy waterfall picture is incredible. Looks like a good trip.

Thanks, I'm glad you liked them.

Which waterfall picture did you like specifically?

It was the last one, on page 6. It is landscape rather than portrait orientation. I liked the other ones, too, but something in that one really caught my eye.

I was guessing that was the one you meant but wasn't sure.

I'm really happy with how that one turned out. Most of my handheld shots at 1/6 second or more tend to turn out fairly blurry (I don't have the steadiest hands) but I tried using the burst mode to take several shots and that helped reduce the problem.

Taking pictures of water can be really hard. A short exposure gives it an unreal sort of "caught in time" look but a long exposure gives it an unreal sort of glassy look. I want to spend more time experimenting and seeing what works better. That's one of my favorite things about digital photography, experimenting costs nothing.

Yeah, we've had fun playing with our camera, too. It has a fireworks setting, that Mike really likes, and I have played a bunch with the macro stuff. Outdoor shots are always a little tricky, anyway, but if you can find the right setting the camera will do it for you. I did some experiments with my 35mm when I needed slides--aperture settings, exposure times, etc. Very interesting, but as you say, expensive.
