    Reflectivity.

    Just spent 2 days in Spokane, WA. (got back this afternoon). We stayed in a hotel that is right next to the Spokane River in an area adjacent to Riverfront Park. I spent the majority of Friday afternoon wandering and shooting in the park. Wonderful location, mostly natural settings, some left over structures from Expo '74, flowers everywhere. Waterfalls.

    Both days we had absolutely gorgeous weather- mid 80s, clear skies and almost no wind at all, which made for some very nice reflection shots.

    Random reflective surfaces. 5N/kit zoom

    Nice stuff! There's something magical about clear blue skies in water that cameras are often better at bringing out than the eye

    Hey, that's where my brother lives.

    So nice up there. I tried to find work and move up there, but I could not find anything substantial.

    It's a cool city. Too many one-way streets though. I think about moving up there until I remember how much snow they get every year. I hates me some snow. 'Cept to take pictures of. ;)

    Nice city. Had the pleasure of spending the night there back in May. No time for pics though. I like number 3 also but number 2 caught my eye too.

    Thanks, it is a neat place to visit. Someone pointed out that I needed to fix the perspective in #2, so here it is:

    I reckon this'll look fantastic in the evening, provided that there's a lot of lights to reflect.

    It does, but pics will have to wait for the next trip. I walked my butt off between taking pics & walking to/from dinner & just couldn't drag myself back out again. I'm sooooo lame! ;)

    Congratulations friend, you did a good job, great shots, the sky is incredible, colors are more vivid, loved the # 3, the second is great, good angle.

    The kit works very well in the right hands....;)

    Thanks Freddy. The kit zoom is pretty capable. It would be hard to find a AF zoom in the same price range that worked better I think. :)
