Hamilton Air Show

Here are a few images taken from my backyard of the Hamilton Air Show this past weekend. The Nikon really impressed me again. This camera is still new to me but it really outshines my old Olympus. I used the standard lens with the auto focus as my only other lens is manual focus. Impossible with the speeds these aircraft were flying.  Had the UV polarizer on the lens as it was a beautiful sunny day. The really nice thing with this camera is the ability to really zoom in and crop these images. Enjoy!

Dec Floral Forum Project

Quick update from the Black Berry. This was the Floral Forum project from Dec. As you can see I am a bit behind. LoL Great project concept and the references were beautiful. I chose a different reference pic and changed it. Solely for educational purposes. Need all the help I can get. This image is aprox. 8x10 which tends to be my favorite size. Painted using Derwent Inktense Watersoluble Pencils for the first time. Have to confess at first they were troublesome but the more I used them the better I liked them. The colors are very vibrant. Unlike watercolor pencils the color sets fast and permanent. So beware! Having said that, you can really achieve some nice layers of color. Overall very pleased(cause they were not cheap) and enjoy using them.
