Thanks Mark and Danny. I am attracted by colors, patterns and textures.

Excellent photo, Mark. What camera and lens did you use for the photo?

Gary, are you talking about the picture of the lock?

Great shot, Rick. Boy, they don't make door hardware like that, anymore. Really nice.

Yes.



Gary, I shot that with my Nikon D80. I used an 18-135mm zoom set at 75mm. Settings were f11, 1/100 and ISO 100.

Thanks Chuck. No, I don't think they make them like that any more. A couple of houses down the street was a house being renovated. The front doors on it were incredible. I took some pictures but they didn't come out real well. I'll have to go back and try again.

Geez, I wish I could take pictures like that! Like I said, I would just walk by that stuff and never give it any thought. Rick looks at it and it turns into an art form!

All neat shots Rick!!!

Rick, I apologize. I mistakenly thought Mark had taken the photo of the lock. I appreciate your understanding and your providing the info about the camera settings. One more question: did you use Lightroom to process the image?

Mark, I also wish I had taken a photo such as the one Rick produced. It's quality work, indeed.

Rick...both are super photos! I will also ask the same question: What software are you using to process. I have not purchased any yet and being a computer dumba$$, I need something relatively simple to change contrast, add soft focus.... sepia and so on. I have just been using the "free" Picasa program.
