    After today, 'they' are projecting rain. So I thought I would take the dog out and explore a local park. I used my NEX6 with a SEL18200 lens. There was some minor processing. No cropping.

    Thanks. When I looked through the view finder the web was reflecting the sun. After downloading the picture I didn't see the glow. I realized what I saw was the focus peaking. Ha. Joke was on me. I should have figured it out then because all the pictures had the peaking. Live and learn. Still, it's a nice web.

    The spiders/webs were everywhere. Can't tell you how many homes I disturbed by walking through them. I was too busy looking for pictures.

    Nice work. Gotta enjoy the rain breaks up there.

    Although I enjoy our summers, not too hot, blue skies, not too rainy, I like this time of year. Fall/Halloween/ Thanksgiving/Christmas/hockey/college football, what's not to like. Well, maybe raking the leaves. Winter time in the Northwest does limit the picture taking. When we get snow that can be really pretty.

    I have some more park pictures. I'll post them in a day or so. I'll need to pick out some different scenes.

    Here are some more pics. The black and white is a 'I'm way in over my head' with PP. I couldn't find a feature in Elements11 that did a plain convert to B&W so I just tweaked the knobs. I was trying to bring out the ripple. The last pic is the original. Opinions? Be gentle. :)

    I enjoy seeing photos of other parts of the country, because I'm a tree junkie, and y'all have trees we don't. Love it.

    I like the 1st one from the second set :thumbup: The vignetting also works for me

    I prefer the coloured version of the B&W - IMO the details are lost in the B&W one

    Thanks for the feedback. I probably over processed the B&W pic.

    Nice sharp shots and the colour / detail are really nice. I find a few of them are a little 'busy' with lots of twigs / branches but all in all a nice set. Like the spider one and the dog one best.
