Nice picture and gate Ronstar, should make a great card. My gate is a post with a chain that never gets pulled across the road- it's only there to "remind" people that they are in my driveway and should feel to turn around if they aren't coming to my house.

Thanks davemartin88. I wanted a gate similar to yours, but I was overruled by DW. But when I installed it, I didn't think of the additional snow clearing that would need to be done to open/close this thing.

Toshiba Unveils the World’s First SD Card with Built-In NFC: Preview Contents with Your Phone

In February (they say), with this card, all you need do is touch your Smart Phone to the camera and your image would be uploaded to the phone. No cables needed.

And with this card -- FlashAir™ II Wireless SD Card series -- you could send it directly to your PC. Again, no cable needed.

Some of the newer DSLRs come with built in WIFI allowing you not only to transfer photos to your iPhone, but also trigger and remotely view the "live view" viewfinder!

I've a wifi card next to the CF card and save duplicate images. Too slow. Plus, we don't have wifi in the truck camper. Not a problem - we'll be home for a few days this week before heading to New York. I'll get my cables for the iPad then and post a few photos.

Another iPhone photo. Like the 'Manual' app - your aperture is fixed, but you can set shutter speed and ISO. You also see the histogram before you take the shot. Quick and easy. On the screen, WYSIWYG

Frigid weather produces blue skies - but it was sooo cold!!

An old man from the tropics cannot handle too much of this weather.

That's what they make Photoshop for. I have a bunch of shots of nothing but clear blue skies and a variety of cloudy skies for that reason.

And both of us absolutely loathe cold weather. We are in hibernation mode now.

I'm liking your photos of New York but this is certainly not the time of year I'd pick to go there.

A while ago, we had a discussion on histograms and exposure, with advocates saying the histogram should stretch across the scale and always be fully to the right. Found this well explained article about histograms, and it mentions their faults using them for choosing an exposure. It shows how a high key image would have everything to the right. A low key image would have to the left. You can't have one particular histogram placement good for all exposures. The histogram must reflect what's actually in the scene to represent an accurate exposure. Shows examples.

That's why I prefer a hand held light meter and measure ambient light.
