<p>Hey Hin,</p>

<p>On Sept 14 I was at Emerald Bay taking the same shot from within just a couple feet from your location, but taking it all in with the fish eye. I loved the scenery at this tourist vantage point, but you'd think that for it being a highlighted tourist vantage point (parking lot, bathrooms, paved trail, guardrails, interpretive signs) they'd pluck the handful of standing dead storm damaged trees just beyond the guardrail that likely messed up more photographers' shots than just mine. Just enough of those damaged trees that good photo setup points are few and far between when there are dozens of other people milling about shooting family shots with their P&S's and camera phones. Your capture was much better than mine.</p>

<p>Lots of great photos this week. Robert's rowing shot really caught my eye, and it works great in B&W.</p>

<p>I stumbled upon some great mushrooms on Friday--"Chicken of the Woods" (<em>Laetiporus cincinnatu), </em> I think--in someone's yard. I shot some with the Voightlander 180mm on Friday and returned yesterday with the SMC-A 35-105mm for some additional shots. Light was pretty poor--especially yesterday--so I couldn't stop down as much as I would have preferred for dof purposes and also lost a bit of detail to NR. I found these colors difficult to work with in PP, btw--the light yellow areas kept blowing out on me.</p>

<p>This is from Friday.</p>

<p>Hey all,<br>

Sorry it has been so long. Law School is a lot like my my past girlfriends. I love it to death but it's kickin my butt. At least the scenery is lovely. I finally managed to get out of the library and take a few shots. Unfortunately it was a bit hazy. Next time I will put on the polarizer. Great stuff everyone. Michael, that picture of Mt. Rainer is outstanding and Robert I love the image of the rower. It takes me back to days of rowing on the Charles and the Schuylkill. Here are a few pics I snapped off from school. Even when I don't post I still check out all your work. Happy shooting!</p><div>00Ub9D-176105584.JPG.47748b3bbc368ce258b53966bf2ed137.JPG</div>

<p>I took my son and his friend to the Canadian International Airshow in Toronto a few weeks ago. It was a good show but oriented so that the spectators look into the sun and hazy white sky. The airplane shots are not worth looking at, but I liked this one after my weird PP. K200D, Soligor 75-150mm, f/unknown, 1/350 sec, ISO 100.</p><div>00UbJD-176181584.jpg.e86c773daf6141c5e56e092a6db01453.jpg</div>

<p>Some fortuitous shots for me this week. I was out checking a site for a wedding. PEI on a beach with a cliff behind. I heard a strange rustling sound behind me and just glanced over my shoulder to see the critter below. Of course the camera had the 18-55mm on it. I slowly changed the lens to the FA*300mm and turned to get these shots.</p>

<p>It turned out there were 6 of them and they didn't care about me one bit. I was able to get very close and took 31 keepers before the sunset made shooting too dark.</p>
