All these photos keep giving me ideas... You bet I'm gonna gussy up my little 14x4 abg once it's set up! Bamboo reed screens around the pool is step one... Maybe a shade sail over said pool... And fake parrots or a string of lights shaped like parrots... (I'm nothing if not irreverent!)

I bought the first piece for my pool paradise today:


I love wind chimes, and look forward to several more sets of chimes. My ultimate goal is a set of Corinthian chimes, those big tuned ones that ring in such a sonorous way.

I think my pool paradise will end up being a combination of Zen and parrot head. Interesting fusion...

5 images stitched together and some quick adjustments in Lightroom and then Color Effects for some contrast. Would normally edit sky and land as separate but this was a just quickie .under 5 minutes
Thanks, I appreciate the photo workflow discussion. It's above my current knowledge but still interests me.

Nice. Lightroom is still the best for photos. I’m holding onto the last release cause I refuse to give Adobe a monthly payment. I still use the nic software plugins for my hdr pics. How do you like the that fast wide angle. I have the tokina for my wideangle shooting but it’s a 2.8. I don’t have anything that wide and fast.

Great pic again.

There are some really good prime lenses on the cheap from Tokina, and Rokinon,, the 9.99 is too easy when I was upgrading anyway.. I have and like the Rokinon 14mm2,8 24m TS, 21mm 1.4 and a Canon16-35 2.8 that are the go to lenses for night work..
Is there a photography section here.. I would enjoy some chat there..

No we should have one cause of all the pics that get posted on here.
