Nice!! Part on my issues with photography is composition. When to let things look blurry or when to make it look like it's a still shot. It's amazing how just lowering the shutter speed a bit completely changes the feel of the image and is that fine line that separates an "ok" shot from a "WOW" shot. Your skill gets intimidating.

 

Kudos, monkey man.

Well thanks very much for that voodoo.

A few years back a local car club asked me to come up to shoot them on their track day. That's where it sank in that a fast shutter speed gives you a photo of a car parked on a race track. I started learning how to pan that weekend.

That must be it

You can take the same kind of photo with your smart phone.  Just dab a wee bit of vaseline on the lens. Its an old george lucas trick.

Thanks much Kenny.

You see the same thing in that shot that I do.

Nice and decadent. Is it old?  Like 100 + years.  

Near as I can tell, it opened in the mid 1800s. I'm not sure how it's changed since then - most of the one's that have been in use since the beginning seem to morph a little through their lifetimes.

Thanks very kindly Kenny.

It seems that our tastes are similar. Yet again, you've picked a favorite of mine.

I'm unsure as to which one of us should worry about that though. :lol:

How about neither of us worry, and we have a nice drink instead? :beerchug:

In my Christmas tree, spotted while out mowing.

The best angle didn't turn out so sharp; too much breeze, not a good-enough shutter finger.  (The best of several: )

Cool shots Kenny.

Shooting really close can be tough - the nature of it is the closer you focus, the less depth of field you get. You're really at the mercy of the wind and the angle you can get. Nicely done.

Wow, those cathedral pics (and the porch shot) are fantastic!!  (I love those old gothic churches).

 

Kenny, great spider shots!  Those are hard to pull off, but you did a good job.
