I like #3. I'm partial to landscapes with sweeping fore-to-background lines.

Robert - some nice photos of Bali.

Did you enjoy the trip there?

I have been there a lot but you need to pick your spot in Bali these days.

I did enjoy my stay. I have been there a few times myself. Photo 1 and 3 are from Ubud and #2 is from the small island of Gili Trawangan. I have found the Balanese people to be welcoming. There have been a few bombings in Kuta and Jinburan in the past. I think most of the trouble comes from outsiders. Prices were a bit higher than when I had been there in the past!

Here are some photos taken yesterday at the Jakarta port.

The wooden ships are all working vessels.

Why all the rust stains on the wood hulls? From the ironwork above deck? I'd think it would wash off with spray but apparently not.

It just looks out of place to see rust on wood like that.

Possibly the rust is from whatever iron fasteners are used to secure the wood hull to the frame - just a guess, looking at the pattern of rust...

Some photos of my grandson's soccer game last night in low lighting. Unfortunately he took one for the team when he stopped a shot with his face instead of his hands. The pictures are sequential as he shook it off and got back in position.

Not sure about the rust - I agree with Seraphim, must be from the iron fasteners.

As you can see, 2 men were repairing the wooden planks with a hammer and chisel - so definitely wooden.

One of the (admittedly few) benefits of the polar vortex is that the cold is often accompanied by clear, sunny conditions. And thanks to the moderating effects of the Pacific Ocean, the coast doesn't get nearly as frigid.

Can't say I get to do a lot of kayaking in the month of November, but I cannot resist on days such as this. The Salish Sea calls.... and I will obey.

Found this 10 or 12 point buck in my front yard. Too bad I didn't have time to adjust the camera settings.

I've had that issue too. By the time I get the camera focused they're heading for the trees.

That's why we finally got a DSLR back in 2005; my wife got tired of pointing her camera at the grandkids, and by the time it decided it wanted to shoot, the kids would have scattered to new interests and she'd have a picture of the carpet...

A Nikon D50. I'm still using it with a 18-200 zoom for semi-serious picture-taking, trying to decide if I can get enough dynamic range from the NEF files to avoid sinking money into something in which my interest has been intermittent. The recent train pictures I posted were Fine JPEG right out of the camera, with some post-processing in Picasa, and GIMP for a few. They look fine at web resolutions, and I don't see myself preparing a gallery show anytime soon. But I had to work the exposure on every image in order to pull out shadows or tone down highlights, so having more dynamic range in the camera sensor would be nice. Of note is that, except for occasional cropping, I'm quite fine with 6MP resolution.

But, the time to 'gear up' is probably now, while I'm still w*rking...

The increased resolution of newer cameras is extremely nice for cropping. I'm not sure what the dynamic range of a D50 is, but if you're careful not to overexpose, it should be fine. Used to shoot 'chromes which had a dynamic range of about 5 lol.

BUT - you know you're going to want something better. Wait as long as you can then get the nicest body/sensor you can afford. It will last a long time. Loved my D200 up until the time I dumped the canoe. When I got my new camera, I was glad I dumped the canoe.

Even if DW was in the canoe at the time...
