Thanks Gary and Danny.

Gary, nothing to apologize about and I've seen your pictures posted here and they were all quality.

I use Photoshop CS3. It is my weakest link in photography. I should take some classes and learn how to use it better.

I've also used Nikon's CaptureNX and it is much easier to use and does a fantastic job. Also much cheaper than Photoshop.

I have heard a lot of great things about Lightroom. I think there are a couple of threads about it in the Photography Forum.

Thanks Rick. I have not installed the CaptureNX, but have a "trial" version. If it is easier, I am going in that direction. Danny

Danny, let me know what you think after you've tried it. If you go to Nikon's site there are video's that show how to use Capture.

Ah! The secret is 'Reply to Topic' not the quick reply

Here are a few of my favorite pictures.

All taken with an early Canon S30. Amazing what you can do with 3 mega-pixels

There is still a problem. so will try later.

Aha. A bit of a struggle but I succeeded sort of. I hope you enjoy these as much as I do.

This is the sunset taken just outside Siena Italy October 27, 2002 the dat after Mount Etna erupted in Scicily. I was stopped in traffic so thought I would make use of my time.



My wife took this through the window of a moving car in August 2004. I was pleased with how it turned out.


A few minutes later I stopped to get this one.



The following day I was blessed with another wonderful sunset in southeeastern Manitoba



2005 found us in Vermont. An equally beautiful Sunset.


2006 we wnet to the Gaspé Penninsula in Quebec. I got these shots between 5:00 AM and 5:30 AM
It was worth the early rising.




Lastly on a different theme a shot of a flow growing in the sulphur and heat of the Yellowstone Paint pots. I held the camera beside the boardwalk and took a blind shot. Some of us are born lucky


Thankyou for giving me a place to share these.

Bob, your sea shots, as well as the last one with the hiking trail are very nice. I especially like that showing the Gaspé Peninsula.

We just got back from a trip to Greece & Turkey. I'm still going through the 1025 photos I took, but here's what I sent to friends as an e-postcard. It's the view from our hotel window:
