From my January 20th week trip, once again had some opportunities to put the Tamron 10-24mm through some workout. Starting off with some night shooting, ultrawide style, through Epcot's World Showcase. The skies were really wild - very low cloud/fog from daytime storms as a cold front passed through - it went from 80s the day before to 40s that night - and the lights were bouncing off those low banks of cloud and fog for some real wild colors:

Beautiful shots, looks like it may have been a little windy!

Oh yeah...it was a LOT windy! Took quite some patience waiting for the least blowy winds to run my exposures - though the branches were blurring from moving around, for the most part it was worse just before and just after those exposures. But I wasn't going to be denied my night shots just because of some wind!! Thanks for the comments.

Thank you Daisy. Much appreciated. I am a big subscriber to the idea of shot and camera setup, to avoid post processing. Not that either approach is right or wrong - just personal preference. I much more enjoy taking photos than processing them...so I don't really do any post processing. In this case, these photos were resized and slightly sharpened using USM (unsharp mask) to recover some of the lost sharpness from the resizing.

I shoot in JPEG mode rather than RAW, set the camera's internal settings for sharpness, contrast, and saturation to my liking, set the white balance when I shoot, and adjust the exposure with shutter/ISO/aperture/EV. On some occasions when I do any post processing, it would be minor noise reduction when shooting high ISO shots, or minor cloning work to clone out a dust spot. Some folks here are truly amazing post processors - their skill with the computer in manipulating photos goes way beyond mine...it's just something I don't enjoy - 10 minutes in front of my computer working on photos, and I'm already wanting to do something else!

I just bought myself a canon SX30 IS for Xmas and for our very first trip to the World. I look at all your work you post here and on other picture threads guys and I just didn't know how I would ever get to this level. I LOVE to take pictures, but I don't have any processing "guizmos". Nor do I see myself in front of the computer for hours. I PREFER TO BE OUTSIDE. Some day, when DD11 is more autonomous, I will, take shooting lessons, but right now, her special needs are too heavy for me to take these kind of lessons. So, since I am so new to a slighty better camera, this post is the most soothing for my soul it could be.

THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH!

One week ago today I woke up to this—a solid sheet of ice on our road. Now it looks like we are in for more of the same tomorrow.
