I understand that pain there Wandering AI. I have a digital camera from the early days of digital cameras, and to see the prices now is kinda painful (or would be if I actually paid for the thing instead of winning it in a lawsuit).

btw, nice pictures people.

I jumped into the digital camera fray when they were still moderately expensive but not anywhere near that expensive Wandering A.I.!!
My first 2.1MPix Fuji was about $400. Nice photo with the camera anyway . However, the latest S602 was 550 (~ $900) - a bit of a expensive splash out, but I'm not regretting it one bit. It's a joy to use.

Asura : Indeed, some nice macro work there! I have a few 'semi' macro shots, mostly of water features though. I shall have to dig them up. Oh, and cheers for the large Seattle pic!

Funnylink : Well, what can I say but... Ahhhhhhhhhh!!

Triple zZz : Lovely waterfall shot there! Makes me want to post such a shot now.. and the mountains fading into the haze is quite effective too. Nice. I guess these are digital stills, being 640x480?

Another waterfall pic :

Nice waterfall. Looks like something I would climb.

Thanks gravitation - (EtherNEZ waxes philosophical) - There are beautiful places everywhere if you just look closely enough for them....

That particular waterfall would be a particular challenge to climb I suspect as it's almost entirely covered with freezing cold meltwater!! *shiver*

Asura Well there's certainly worse ways they could kick the bucket....

Keeping with that watery theme.... here's a nice water feature, not a macro really but certainly a serious close-up. This waterfall is really small! Water is always a fascinating material to photograph.

You know EtherNEZ, that might look better with a longer exposure time. However, I am not sure how long your digital camera will let you go. The longer the exposure on waterfalls the cooler they look

I think I could make it up either of those waterfalls, but then again I have had similar thoughts land me in the hospital.

goes off to look for more waterfall pictures

I agree. It's a shame because that picture was taken with my first Fuji which does not allow much in the way of manaul control. The new S602 could do it of course, 15 seconds exposure capability there. That will be an idea for my next venture out, certainly

Yeah, Water is amazing


I don't have a camera as good as yours , those pics are really high quality (the last one you have posted EtherNEZ )

I want to post some of the pics I took in Japan (some beautiful temples and nature sceneries ), but I have no scanner for the moment...

Esperchld : Ooohh. A monochrome shot. Nice ^_^. Once again I say the exposure working wonders on the water flow.

You don't have to have a great camera! If you know how to use your camera to it's full potential and you have a little imagination you can still produce excellent photographs! Don't be intimidated by enormous images. Large does not always equate to high quality - I just happen to use my camera in 3Mpix mode most often, 128Mb SM do not last particularly long with that kind of punishment but still...

Photos from Japan would be a very welcome addition to this thread
I'd really love to see first hand pictures of Fuji-san, Hokkaido and Okinawa particularly, but I'd be happy with anywhere else really!

Wow, you all have such beautiful photos! Please continue posting more... Hellychan, I would also love to see your photos of Japan.

Here's a waterfall pic of Yosemite Falls.



And here's a beach on the Windward side of Hawaii...



The digital camera that I'm using is the Olympus Camedia D-40 ZOOM. Here are the specs for those that are curious: http://www.olympusamerica.com/cpg_se...sp?product=712

Well, here is some more water.

Aww, I'm sorry. I get sentimental with photos as well, especially when I think back to the memories that I had during the time the photo was taken. And Esperchild, your photos are AMAZING. Please, please post more! I absolutely love them.

Ah, Hinata-chan, now you've got me going coastal again

Esperchld : Very Autumnal , lovely colouration and the water effect is if anything even more pronounced this time.

EDIT : Wow , you're going for the kill this time with not 1, nor 2 but 3 glorious images! The effect on the last one is so strong it looks almost ethereal, like a scene from an Elvish fantasy...

Here's another favourite, everytime I go here I think of Enid Blytons's Famous Five, ah, the adventures....

Thank you EtherNEZ and Hinata-chan. What can I say EtherNEZ those were taken last week and the week before (couldn't finish the roll inbetween due to having to cut my trip early to due being stupid on rocks). On a similar note, those rocks look like they might be fun .....

Nice NenMaster, I see someone else doesn't leave the case on their computer.

Hrm, the exotic scenery is dominating the thread. ^^ Now for something
completely different...here are some night time urban shots I took last Spring.
I didn't take them seriously enough not to be drunk whilst taking them, but
there are some interesting shadows and some light on flower effects at least. ^^







Hoboken is just across the river from New York City and is a nice place you can
subway(well path) over to in order to crawl the bars and sleep with secretaries
who can't afford the Manhattan rent. My batting average is somewhat less than
that of my friends', however, thus the wandering about taking pictures of
flowers at 2am...
