After 202 pages, I finally reached the end of the thread. Whew! Lots of great photography here and I haven't even look at the first three threads...

A few comments before I post some of my own pictures...

The quality of the image may be better, but it will not help me be a better photographer.

Good points. A competent photographer can take good pictures with
any camera. The best way to improve your photography is to first learn all you can about the basic principles of photography and then practice, practice, practice. Don't be afraid to experiment. Digital is cheap. If something doesn't work out, just delete it.

Case in point: Even though I have drawers full of DSLR cameras and fancy lenses, on Oct. 7 Pacific Coast Cruise all I took for a camera was a high-end Canon point and shoot, the G12.

Macaques are Monkeys. The Barbary Macaque is unique in that they don't have tails.

You can do the same thing with Layer Masks in Photoshop, but this is a much less labor intensive method.

I will be leading the walk on the Wonder!!!! I will be on the California Coast Cruise that day and was upset that I would miss the walk so my DH said why don't you lead one on the cruise. I applied and was approved!!!

We will be in port that day in Ensanada but the walk will be on the ship!

I know the ship fairly well but would love to get ideas from all of you. Do you have a favorite place on the ship or even a secret place to get great shots? Any and all suggestions are appreciated!!

Thanks so much
denise


I really should have joined you on this. All I did in Ensanada was lounge by the pool...

I've been a member of the Photography on the Net forums for a number of years and I find most of the people there to be pretty helpful. I've made a bunch of friends through that forum. POTN is pretty Canon-centric, but there are places for users of other brands as well. You'll find their forums easy to navigate as they use the same software...

Now, a couple of my photos:

Butchart Gardens in Victoria, BC. From last year's Wonder repositioning cruise, Vancouver to LA...



Ruins of the Warden's House, Alcatraz. Wonder Pacific Coast Cruise, October 2012.

I'm assuming you took this photo with the point and shoot mentioned above. Did you take it on the auto setting? Did you tweek it with a program afterward? If so, which one. Thanks.

Nice Butchart's photo BTW. It's about 30 minutes from my house.

Yes, it was with the G12. I ALWAYS shoot in RAW and either in Program or Av Modes. One of the reasons I chose the G12 as my compact camera is because it shoots in RAW. I never use Auto because it takes away my control of the shot.

Because I shoot in RAW, my images have to be post-processed in some form or another. I use Lightroom 4 as my primary processing program, although I do use Photoshop CS5 for some things. I also have the Nik Viveza and Silver EfX Pro Plug-ins for LR4.

I love all the tips I get in this thread. I bought my first dslr this summer, and am still very new to all of it's features. Sadly, I didn't have a ton of time to learn before going to Alaska, but I keep practicing and am getting there! I guess I'll just have to go back!

Yes Grumpy The Goat you should have joined us....we had a nice walk and made history by being the first walk on a cruise ship! ( Scott Kelby even mentioned the walk on one of his web casts!)

There is always next year! Can't wait to hear what the date will be...

Here is our group from the walk...

Thanks, for the info. I'll need to have a closer look at the G12 capabilities.

Heading out under the Lion's Gate Bridge, Vancouver. Wonder repositioning cruise, September 2011. This picture was shot with an older Canon Powershot G5. I didn't get the G12 until November.
