Marvelous as usual.  I like it when the wind dies over the water, it really brings up the reflectance and allows all kinds of tone shaping.

I'm truly honored and flattered for the opportunity to participate in an interview with +Nd Magazine. They have interviewed many inspirational photographers who's work I admire very much and I encourage you to go take a look at their work and words. Also, there are many other wonderful photographers who have profiles displaying their beautiful photographs on the web site so check that out as well when you're there. I'm sure you'll recognize some of the regulars here on G+.

Scenario 


Banding in the dark-to-light transitions has always been an issue with my work but I swear it's gotten worse here on G+. Maybe it's just me but it can really kill an image in my opinion, especially this one. Because of this I wasn't going to share this photo here but…whatever.

No worries at all, +Stephen Cairns, I always appreciate your wonderful comments and dialog but never feel like it's something you have to do. To me, prepping students for a speech contest is much more important than photography. I'm glad you like the lights as well, it's what really did it for me here. This day wasn't too windy so the rain was a welcomed factor, however, I agree with you when it is windy, it's a huge pain to keep the filter clean. I feel like you also expend double the calories just fiddling with everything to stay dry on those days. It really does take a lot out of you.

These two fellas sat patiently long enough for me to get one 2.5 minute shot off, then they were gone.
