Default Remember when......

I posted this post and we had the discussion about the saturation? Well, haha, I had a good laugh today when I got done with some fanning today and got my camera out to upload. I made a box of rocks look like a genius! Apparantly I had a monochrome setting with a boost of red still on from before I made that trip when I was experimenting with my camera. I felt SO dumb. In fact I don't know how these two shots made it in today b/c they were shot with that setting, thank god for sun is all I gotta say:

I tried my darndest for the 1st one, it took 5 tries because the shots I had the ditchlights weren't in focus but the numberboards were? It was odd, then again my aperture was practically all the way open I think on a zoomed in telephoto, so yea, but it got in.


Just thought I'd share with ya'll

Nice job, Ben. The second one is great, and it gave me a chuckle as the car has the PA license plate with the Bengal Tiger on it. I never got that concept. Nothing says 'Pennsylvania' better than a Tiger. Huh?!?

I love shooting Monochrome with a red "filter." NS on a sunny day is just right for that.

They turned out pink! lol, I don't know why! I got rid of the originals and just kept the revised copies, which you see. With the dull colors of fall and a pinkish loco.......eh haha.

Edit: I must didn't have it set right when i was experimenting, i didnt intend to use monochrome at all when shooting, not yet, let me get a few shots in before i branch off to different types of shooting.

Ah.... Oh, well. And now that I think about it, I didn't actually shoot the above shot in Monochrome aterall.... just added that touch afterwards. But I do shoot Monochrome often.... or, well, some anyway.

Hmmmm, we may see another submission of that street runner except in snow, last night it dumped some nice dust on the ground so now everythings WHITE, you think it'll get bumped for "previous" photo or whatever?

It shouldn't. A few of us have "seasonal" photos of locations. I like seeing the contrast of the seasons.

It snowed alright.........just along the highway. Was coming from my finance's house on the interstate, it was a blizzard! Got off my exit, drove about 2 miles, nothing. Oh well. I went back today and caught a SD80MAC (love those EMD's) at the same location, maybe it'll get in, who knows haha. Thanks again guys

Nittany (read: mountain) Lions are native...Bengal Tigers not so much. But this is interesting:

Quote:
The mascot was the creation of Penn State senior H. D. "Joe" Mason in 1907. While on a 1904 trip to Princeton University, Mason had been embarrassed that Penn State did not have a mascot. Mason did not let that deter him: he fabricated the Nittany Lion on the spot and proclaimed that it would easily defeat the Princeton Bengal tiger.
Anyway, tiger license plates are dumb!

Well, their mascot sure does look like it was "fabricated on the spot"!
