Ok.  So I'm going to try to do something for selfy-sunday next week.  But I need some inspiration/ideas.  Any help there?  I really want to get back to shooting regularly (once I get caught up on processing old photos lol).

So... Ideas, fellow photogs???

Ok.  Went a bit away from my usual direction with B&Ws on this one.  I think it has a good feel... but I'm not sure.  What do you guys think?  Chime in!  Critique away.
This was shot at 5000iso due to really low light, so I did quite a bit of smoothing to take some grain away.

I experimented a bit when taking this shot with the intention of turning it B&W.  Considering how little I've played with flashes and thought that far ahead, I'm pretty proud of the results.  By no means is it perfect tone or composition wise... But I still like it and think it came out well.
Basically, I waited until it was fairly low light (cloudy and just past sunset) then turned on my in camera flash and adjusted position for light and shadow.  The resulting image is pretty horrible (something you expect from a point and shoot).  However, I planned on manipulating the photo.  The purpose was to get the rich shadows in the background and on her neck and shoulders.  I think it worked well.

Finally got around to processing some lonnnngggg over due photos.  Went a slightly different direction with this one than I normally do, and I'm fairly pleased with the results.

Sitting out in the tranquil woods... Such a nice, if not chilly, way to spend the day.

It's Allliiiiveeee!  It's Alllliiiveeee! Mwahahahahaha!
My PC is back up and running!  New MB, RAM, CPU, and case.
Asus Sabertooth 990
AMD FX 8150
16GB RipJaw DDR3 
Cooler Master HAF X 932 case

Now to back up my files on my external... do some spring cleaning... and repair my Linux install.  Or reformat and start everything all over again.  Either way, I'm just happy to have my machine back!

I'm preparing to get the parts to fix my dead PC... And thought that I may get a second monitor for my photo editing. I've been using a Samsung 2253bw for a while. I'd like to get a good monitor that is color accurate 22" or more... On a budget. Not sure that I can afford the IPS monitors. Any suggestions??? Chime in photogs!

A few captured moments from our family vacation in Myrtle Beach. It has been a great time and our daughter got to be in the ocean for the first time. It may be a hassle to cart a bunch of kids (and all of the associated gear) in and out of the sand... But it is definitely worth the cherished moments. #weareparents
