New Photo Set Up

  Glessner Covered Bridge

After a bit of a delay, the first of the autumnal photos from my recent trip to southwestern Pennsylvania have been posted over at my Flickr site.  I'm still working on the images from the Flight 93 Memorial, which I also visited on that trip.

These images have been a bit of a struggle for me.  I am using the rather crappy kit lens that I have had for years.  It's served me well, but you see a lot of noise on the long focal lengths as it isn't image stabilized.  The focus is also a touch soft. 

I am also struggling to show the deep blue of the sky and also catch the pop of the fall foliage colors.  I am a novice Photoshop CS3 user, but gosh, what an amazing program!  For the most part, I have erred on the side of the leaves, but probably would have had better results working a bit more with my filters as I was actually shooting the images to try to enhance the blues.

Let me know what you think!
