Dora the explorer!

Olympus E-510, ISO 400, 36 mm, f/5.3, 1/200 s

Here my little Dora running happily in the garden!!!
The picture was incredibly overexposed because I forgot the high ISO value from the evening before, but with some post production it there again....

Drawing in the sky

Olympus E-510 - ISO 100 - 40mm - f/20 - 1/60

Ok, this is bad bad try, but ok, it's a try. The idea it's not even mine, I saw it somewhere on the internet and I wanted to reproduce it because I tought it's super cool. But well, although I set the camera at f/20, I could not manage to have bot my finger and the sky on focus... maybe a compact camera would work better for this kind of thing.....

Spring is coming!

Olympus E-510, ISO 100, 137mm, f /6.3, 1/400 sec

After a little walk in the park, here the only thing I came out with.... Unfortunately I have the impression that here in Hollan the light is never that good, and colors are always a bit dead.... so I played a bit with saturation and curves....

Karate dojo

Camera Olympus E-510  f/4, 1/250, ISO 800

Ok, this week was difficult... The occasion was very nice: the karate exam in my dojo. But, the conditions to make the photo were not very easy to handle: very low light and people moving fast. I was obliged to shoot at 800 iso all the time. In this picture I really like the subject and the composition, but the lightning is very bad...

Times Square HDR

The idea of this blog is to force myself to post one photo every week. It is going to be hard and I don't know if I will manage to make a new picture every week, but I will post an unpublished one for sure. It would be good to make a new picture every week. Hopefully I will manage.
Last week I was lucky, I was on holiday in NY.
It is not the greatest picture you'll see and probably not even the best I made, but it's a test to see if I can make something good out of the HDR.
Unfortunately the conditions were really bad: it was snowing like mad and it was so windy it was hard to keep the tripod stable. you can clearly see the drops of water on the lens, and this was not what I was hoping for.
Nevetheless, here is the picture.
Comments are welcome, and suggestions on how to improve it even more...
