    Post up the latest non-auto or just plain fancy artsy-fartsy picture(s) you may have taken.
    I take shots of all kinds of things, not just the Mustangs, and like to share, as some of you know.

    I snapped these 2 pics this morning, behind the house. We had freezing rain all day yesterday, everything's a sheet of ice around here this morning:

    Wow those are really nice Gabe! Do you do photo editing? I want to edit but was curious if there's any good free photo editing things out there? I have a nice gaming laptop that I do CAD for fun on. I'm going to at some point get photoshop. It will mostly be for my wife. I got her the Rebel T6 package for a steal for her birthday last year. Been taking pictures of the house in stages as it's getting built.

    I do some editing, yeah, I touch up sharpness/noise, brightness/contrast, things like that, and then final cropping. I usually use Adobe Photoshop Elements 6.0 which is pretty old at this point, but still does most of what I need/want.
    I also have Photoshop CC, the new cloud-based Photoshop which requires a monthly subscription, but because of the subscription I only had it for a short time.
    For camera, I use a point-and-shoot camera for now, until I can afford to go for a "nice" camera.
    Funny you mention house pictures, I have a full renovation thread on here about my house: http://www.s197forum.com/threads/new-house-new-renovation-project.118992/ (if you're interested in that kinda thing, haha)

    Haha I actually followed this awhile ago. Really great work on the house.

    Okay thanks. I want to take more pictures of some somewhat nicer places where I live. But the wife and I like to go places take pictures but normally on crap phone camera. She does a little editing but nothing crazy. Just the little things on the phone lol. But I wanted to learn some of the ropes and practice on my car with some pictures. Maybe shoot some of the wife and car.

    Not very familiar with cameras so here is a dumb question. What is a point and shoot camera lol? Cause all those pictures are stunning even with your I guess not nice camera lol. What camera are you looking to get when you get a "nice" one?

    Thanks dude.


    I'm using a small Canon camera, the SX700HS, for a lot of the nicer pics I take:

    [​IMG]


    I'd like a digital SLR with removable zoom lenses, something in the $500-$1,000 range, but that's not in the budget right now.
    I've taken a bunch of pics with my phone, a Motorola Droid Turbo, and some of them come out pretty damn nice.
    The grasshoper pic above was taken with my phone, and so was the Zakim bridge pic and the pic of the toad.
    Also took the pics below this morning with my phone, and as usual I edited them using the software I mentioned above.

    We've had a lot of freezing rain lately, the firewood pile out back looked especially prime for some pics this morning:

    Thank you!


    Went back through some of my pics and found this one that I took August '17 when my wife and I were in North Carolina, this was during a trip on the Blue Ridge Parkway, we pulled over for some reason and I noticed this little guy:

    The first photo is a night shot on 12 second exposure setting.
    The second and third simple photo shots.
    Minor cropping and straightening on the third, no editing on the other two.

    That's sweet. In all the frost I have seen over the years, I have never seen it quite do that.

    Shot both of these at a job site of mine within 5 minute of each other. Lake Michigan in Aug. Did it with my phone and no filters or editing.
