Rambla del Mar

Shooting details: NIKON D7000, f/4.5, 1/80sec, ISO-125, 26mm

A photo from Rambla del Mar looking into the fading light in the sky through the parked yachts and boats (see Google map). I made the photo look more dramatic by selectively changing saturation and brightness of the sky.

Bellagio, Las Vegas

Famous Bellagio Hotel in Las Vegas. You can see the Ceasar’s Palace in the background. Las Vegas looks best at night (see other photos on this blog) but at times it can look beautiful in day time too. I like this photo for the reflection and the white-grey clouds in the sky. Shot with Nikon D7000 and Nikon 10-24mm lens. January 2011.

Venetian, Las Vegas

I was in Las Vegas for CES 2011. While there I took my new D7000 to shoot some photos of casinos and hotels. D7000 has very good high-ISO performance. At ISO 1100 this photo still shows no noticeable noise. I have tested this camera a fair bit and images with ISO 6400 are quite usable. Shot with Nikon D7000 and Nikon 10-24mm lens.

Focal length: 10mm
Shutter Speed: 1/30s
ISO: 1400
Aperture: 3.5

Flowers, Angel’s Rest Trail

Flowers on Angel’s Rest trail. A very popular hiking spot in the beautiful Columbia Gorge. It was a damp rainy day in the middle of summer. That’s why you see water droplets on the flower. I liked this flower for the striking colors. Shot with Nikon D80 with Nikon 18-200mm VR lens. No modifications besides cropping.Z
