Yeah, it’s annoying how some of the best photos aren’t in high resolution. The highest res I could find was this [1,247px × 809px version](http://www.lamauvaiseherbe.net/wp-content/uploads/2012/01/National_Geographic_concours_2011_02.jpg).

Except it goes to +100 in Lightroom. Shoot out of grubby airline windows and you’ll see it’s an unfortunate necessity. Of course I would rather no clarity adjustment was needed.
So there’s a lot wrong with this image. It’s, at best, a poor merging of two images. 1.) the city is nicely in focus, showing a higher aperture. The stars are *way* out of focus, that’s just not possible with how the city was
No, I do. I’m self employed and unfortunately it looks like I’m going to be booked solid until roughly October. At that point, yeah, I might be able to get a little bit of late-year hiking in, but nothing like the John Muir Trail
I’m aware; my undergraduate degree was in mechanical engineering. That is why I didn’t say that turbines produce electricity, but rather compared it to other electricity-producing turbines. You have a good point, though, that these systems must be tied to a generator to make
I like to talk about tornadoes when I can… This is a tornado in the dissipating or “rope” stage. In supercell (rotating) thunderstorms, cooler, stable air wraps around the rotational center. This is the rear flank downdraft (RFD) and it can choke off the

It funny how we are 2 completely different people, personally I love the cold weather, but I dont mind the warm. I feel like its always easier to warm up then to cool down. In the summer time when it gets to +25°C –
Island of the lost? Awesome name but not familiar with it. It was taken from my parent’s house in Keowee Key. Duke power raises and lowers the lake so sometimes it is an island and sometimes the tip of a peninsula.
Sure. Never been to Pakistan, so no shots of K2, but I’ll gladly show images I myself have shot in the North Cascades: http://i.imgur.com/CGL3Yf5.png Because of the position of the sun (opposite) in relation to the side of the mountains facing the camera, not
I drive on that road fairly often, recognized it instantly. https:[email protected],-96.089883,3a,75y,267.91h,73.9t/data=!3m4!1e1!3m2!1sNddDPMlEEidcIu8k6vZRRg!2e0 And yeah I’d believe you about OP since it was actually taken in Iowa technically.
I’ll just copy-paste the short description I’ve given a buddy before: >It was generally pretty awesome but a huge and tough exercise. >We got to [Fuji Subaru Line 5th Station](http://i.imgur.com/9tRnFeE.jpg), at 2300 meters altitude, by bus from Kawaguchiko train station (about a 45 minute
That’s not a green sky (nor blue snow) – rather, that’s just bad white balance. Here’s my approximation/guess of what the scene probably looked like when it was photographed: http://i.imgur.com/pz1R2wh.jpg
It is hard for me to think that nobody noticed these clouds before. Are they a new phenomenon, or did they decide to acknowledge them as a new group, and they were part of another group until recently? Wikipedia does not answer this …
Thanks. Fuji Finepix S7000. That was back in 2009, for my first trip there in fourteen years. It was my dad’s camera at the time. He visited us later and left it to me because he bought another. I miss the island’s light, it
All you have to do to build a road is to flatten out the area and pave. Bridges involve huge work crews, engineers, and way more heavy machinery. It’s almost never cheaper to build a bridge over something unless the alternate route is way
No I’m saying actual pixelation in the mountains at the bottom, not the orange glowy thing. It’s cool though!
Thanks for the feedback, both clarity and sharpening are only on +7 but vibrance is much higher, will tone it down for the portfolio. Appreciated.
Fantastic! For those who don’t know these are mammatus clouds formed in the ash cloud downwind of the mountain. It’s the same thing that can happen on the underside of the anvil of a large thunderstorm. It’s technically debatable what specifically causes them from
Thanks! My camera is pointed roughly south. It was shot on a Nikon d600 with a samyang 24mm 2.8 and a ioptron star tracker to prevent star trails. It took two images, one with the star tracker enabled and one with it turned off
Yeah! I know, it seems most of my friends have been unaffected, but even out in Lubbock it’s flooding like crazy! like, whahaaaat! Flooding aside, that’s such a great representation of the texas sky, I wanna go back there. Texas pride is so real,
I was trying to get some of this tonight too but nothing anywhere near this. Spectacular! What were your settings?
