The Skies Opened Up

We were driving up Rte 422 to go to a Reading Phillies game and this is what we saw ahead of us. The last picture in this set doesn't fit this group's format and is just to give context for the telephoto shots. There was a rain delay and we came home instead of waiting it out. That's how you know I'm old.

Tango in Green

Today I received a new-for-me Nikkor 75-300 f/4.5-5.6 I bought through eBay. and the box was somewhat crushed when it arrived. So, I thought a little shooting was in order to assure that the packaging had sacrificed its life to protect the lens inside. Seems to be OK. The AF is a little slow, but that was typical of this older lens that was...

Moon on the Wall

I took this last week at a community garden close to my home. I was wandering around in there looking for interesting things to shoot, when I saw this ceramic moon on a wall. I like the texture of the wall and its contrast with the smooth surface of the ceramic. I tried this in B&W, too, but I like the color version better. Again, it's the...

Shadows and Dust

I think this fits the minimalism theme. I don't know what this "tree" is doing out on the beach or if someone put it there but it I knew I wanted to find a way capture it. When trying to figure out my composition I couldn't help but notice the unique shadow that the tree was casting which is what I was trying to make the main subject of this...

A Ground Breaking Abstract

Another one from the waterside park. Strange land as you get near the water. It varies from dusty to slippery to crackly to quicksand-like. With the amount of dead fish in the water a few feet away, I'm guessing it may not be safe to be shooting there... I'll probably go back next weekend.

Painting with Light

Hello everyone,

I am not new to Fstoppers but I'm new to this group. I got this photo while experimenting with the panning technique. I assume everyone here knows what "panning" is but just in case, I was moving the camera from left to right while releasing the shutter. This technique can be used many different ways. It can take quite a...

Sky Wave

I decided to share this image in minimalism and would love hear your thoughts. This photo was inspired by photographer Jeroen Peters.

Fall from grace

A dandelion seed is so delicate and fine and most of the time they float through the air with a wafting lilt in a random direction. This one is dejected and rejected. Such is life.

Signs of Flood

Debris from flooding left on the hiking trail above a lake cove. The water is now 20 feet below this spot. CC Appreciated.

Direction

Just an old trail blaze on a nature trail near home. It's been there a while. CC Apreciated.

More Complex Flower Shot

I usually do single flower versions of these (like the last one of dogwood). However, the few more complex ones I've done have gotten high ratings so I thought I'd try some more. These are from today.

Also, this was my first day out with a 1960 Tokina/Vivitar 5.5 300mm prime lens. It is not an easy lens to get used to as it is totally...

Apocalypse rider

Is it abstract enough? Rainy night...light refractions through water droplets on my car window was giving some 'unnatural' scene at certain angle when everything was defocussed...waited for a rider and captured.
