    Couple more from later the same day: my dad watching the dogs work a hillside and fresh tracks in windblown snow.

    Barred pargo, southern Baja. Can't find exposure info, but it was my favorite Sigma 10-20mm pulled all the way back to 10mm with aperture as wide as I could get it, on an old digital rebel body.

    Great shots, @zthomas . I'm inspired to get my camera out more often.

    Critique welcome!

    These were taken last week with my Nikon D7000 and Tokina 11-16mm f/2.8

    16mm, ISO 250, f/2.8, 1/4000 sec.

    "Long Walk" - A little too much vignette on this one, I think.
    16mm, ISO 100, f/8, 1/250 sec.

    Yesterday before the storms kicked up.
    Pic was taken between the spoil islands at the mouth of the Alafia.

    View is looking south west along the shipping channel.

    I second shooting in RAW. It seems a little daunting at first, but it's actually pretty easy and only a few extra steps. I just started doing it and wish I had done it years ago.

    @not2shabby, those are great. I like the bit of "gauziness," especially on the second one. Nice composition too. Are you doing any processing?

    @zthomas Yes, Sir. I capture in RAW and process in LightRoom. I'm still learning about processing...watching youtube vids and such.

    Went to Miami last weekend to shoot some photos of Renaissance Prowler catamarans for a new website I'm working on. Here are a couple outtakes.

    Tamron 70-300mm @ 300mm on a full-frame body. 1/125, f/5.6, ISO 200. Pushed up the black point and contrast in Camera Raw to add a little drama.
    IMG_1249b2.jpg

    Same lens @ 130mm. 1/125, f/4.5, ISO 200. Again increased contrast, deepened shadows and sharpened for drama.

    I don't have a lot of perspective, because I've only fished with Brian and a couple of others, but I agree he's probably forgotten more about fishing the lagoon than I could ever hope to know. In my experience, he simply always catches fish.

    Did another shoot for Renaissance Prowler in Miami last weekend. Unlike last time, the weather cooperated perfectly. Haven't processed many yet, but I like the colors in this one.

    Tamron 70-300mm @ 80mm on a full-frame body. 1/800, f/5, ISO 800. I was shooting with one hand while hanging onto a T-top leg with the other in a 25-foot boat running alongside, so I used the higher ISO to keep the shutter speed up. Minimal processing here. Polarizing filter helped keep the surface dark and added some contrast between clouds and sky.
