A candid shot with a bit of a Norman Rockwell feel (to me at least) - as I learn some of the basics of Aperture

Wow. Is it really made by you? Nice one if so.

Yes, took it with a point-and-shoot, then turned on B & W in iPhoto. Also, thank you.

Love this ! And you're right. It does have a bit of that Rockwell touch to it. There's an Rockwell Exhibit here in NY, which is actually a showcase of photos of him while he was painting a lot of the work he's well known for. So it's him, and the paintings, captured by film. Cool concept, really. I love going up to his cabin in the Berkshire mountains when possible.

I'd be curious to see the original of this photo if you don't mind. And btw, looks like you're getting on with Aperture pretty well ;)

Thanks! I don't mind at all - you want it e-mailed or posted here? Full resolution or same as what I put up here - which was downsized significantly.

I'd love to see the Rockwell exhibit. Maybe it's me getting older - but I really have a great appreciation for his stuff. It feels like Americana to me.

Do you have a Dropbox or Sugarsync account ? We can share a folder for such things. Perhaps a good idea, since I wanted to share a few screen shots with you, that I took of some Aperture preferences settings and such, and i could add some text files in there as well. But if you'd rather keep it to email, that's cool too. And sure, send me the RAW file, I'd like to see how many steps it would take to reproduce in Lightroom.

And I totally share your appreciation for Rockwell's work. He was an amazing expressive artist. There are a few photos of mine, which remind me a lot of his work.. at the time of shooting, I hadn't thought about that at all.. and surprised me when I saw them. Made me feel even better when a friend of mine who is a graphic artist, and also an admirer of Rockwell, told me that they reminded him of his work as well. Ironically, both shots, taken at least a year apart, are of young kids riding a bicycle.

Anyway, Just PM me what you'd like to do with those files.

it was near Compton in Surrey!

the crosshairs are approximately where i stood to take that shot ;D

i have a few more shots from that visit on my flickr - Flickr: sh0wtime's Photostream (http://www.flickr.com/photos/sh0wtime/)

although i think that one was my favourite from that day :Blushing:

it was the first time i've tried any kind of graveyard or spooky type shots & have to say i really lucked out with the light that day
not bad for a little LX3
wish i'd had the DSLR with me though!

Such a fantastic shot. That place is really eerie looking. I don't think I'd want to be near that place at night.

How old are those graves?

i'd have to go back & check. the building itself doesn't look to be very old but i could be mistaken.

Really perfect. That sky lent its self to a great mood, and you captured it really well.

And don't knock the LX 3... those are some really capable cameras. A DSLR can't help with composition and imagination. Some of my best shots have been taken with my silly little Canon S3IS.

yeah i guess the best camera you can ever have is the one thats with you at the time :)

i've been making an effort to have a camera with me at all times just in case i do see something worth shooting as somethings better than nothing ;D
the LX3 can get some great images but like any small sensored camera you only get good results if the light is right. throw in any kind of darkness or deep shadows & its hello noise!
i was lucky it was so bright that day & i managed to keep detail in the shadows, i just ducked behind trees to keep the lens from flaring ;D

Totally, I've had an LX3 and it's a great little camera for sure. I loved carrying mine around. I did kind of need the SLR more though so I had to sell mine. If I needed a backup carry around camera, I'd definitely get another LX3 or even an LX5. Great stuff.

Interesting! I had set my gallery access up to allow open viewing. Obviously I'm not doing something right.
Maybe I need to set up a Photobucket account afterall.

I was just trying to fulfill my promise to share a picture from my new (refurb lens) and I was finally getting around to actually doing it.
