a question...

Nice pics of the children, you really capture an afternoon of fun and sun.

I'm a newbie so may not know what i'm talking about? Did you photoshop the bouncing photos? because to my untrained eyes, they appear to be photoshoped. But I also know that Sony has in-camera IS, so maybe that's from the IS, which I have no experience.

The bouncing shots have been cropped a little and some colour sat. adjustment and sharpening. Im not very good at PP. (As you were able to see) Its something I would really like to learn about though.

Thumbs up Photo sharing: Sony Alpha

These are some of the first pictures from my new Sony Alpha, I would like to see others also:

My neighbor's Peony bloomed for the first time... Ever, just so I could get this shot:


During my recent work trip to Tucson, AZ I visited Trail Dust Town:


We are going to Disney World in a few weeks where I hope to get some good shots to share, maybe even some fireworks.

I think those are great pictures! Of course, you are my husband and I think that everything you do is great, especially giving me our upcoming trip to WDW/Polynesian concierge as an anniversary present!

But seriously, I'm really happy to see how much you've been enjoying your new camera and all the research you've been doing. The picture that you took of our neighbor's lone peony flower is great, and I know you'd barely had the camera out of the package when you were asked to take that photo.

I know you'll get some excellent shots on our WDW trip. As you know, I've never been able to get even a decent shot of the fireworks from our balcony, let alone a good one! So now I'm looking to you to get us some great fireworks-over-the-castle shots for my website! Not to say that the pressure is on or anything.... lol

Disney shots

Here are some pictures of our recent stay at the Polynesian Resort. This was our first trip with the new camera.

This is the Hawaii building where we stayed on the third floor (Cropped top and bottom and Resized only):


The flowers are everywhere on the grounds (Resized only):


And, they come in all different colors (Resized only):


The lightning arrestors look cool (Resized only):


A casual castle shot for reference (Resized only):


And here is a bird we do not see every day in New England (Resized only):

Nice shots. One of the things I've always read about the Alpha is that it does colors very well. Your pictures certainly reflect that. Nice job.


Also, in post #3, the little stone building that you photographed. Where is that? It looks familar, but I can't place it.

Thanks, I have been very pleased with the colors from the Sony. I used to like the colors on our Olympus C-740, but this camera seems even better when compared side by side.

The stone building is in a small park in the center of West Bridgewater, MA. We've lived in this town for over 10 years and that was the first time we actually took a walk through the park.

Wow, some awesome shots! Glad to have another poster.

The Animal Kingdom Lodge in B&W really shows the details they put into it.

wow, I wouldn't have guessed W Bridgewater. Concord or Plymouth or another historical area is what I would have guessed. Though I think I know where it may be (the building that is). W Bridgewater is pretty small and I do know the area. I had a friend who grew up there and I dated a girl who at the time lived in Bridgewater. I'm from closer to the Cape, but now live Northwest of Boston. Though I do travel RT24 5 days a week for work.

I'll have to check it out one of these days.

Hi, I'm CapeCAD's wife and I just wanted to give you the info about the park It actually IS an historic site, we read the plaques in the park and were pretty impressed! lol

One plaque on a HUGE flat stone reads:

The land of this park was bought in 1649 from the Massasoit Indians by Myles Standish and others as part of the Bridgewater Purchase and allotted to John Ames as original shareholder and settler.

And here before the Revolutionary War the fourth inheritor Captain John Ames began the manufacture of shovels with a triple-hammer set on this stone.


The entire park is an historic site and you can see where the dwellings and other buildings used to stand, as well as waterways, ovens built into stone walls, etc. VERY neat!
