Dive Bomb

So, epic fail on my part.  I was in Utah last week for spring break, and it hit me on Saturday that my day had come and gone.  I figured I would do it on Sunday when I got back, and then I got stuck in Atlanta airport for 6 hours and forgot about it again until Tuesday, at which point I figured I had pretty much missed the bus.  Excuses aside, here are several photos from the aforementioned trip last week.

Photo #1 was a panorama I put together from 4 different shots of the view from the top of a mountain I climbed.

All 4 had the same exposure
Nikon d300 Nikkor 18-70 DX f3.5-4.5
ISO 250

Stitched together in photoshop

#2 Nikon d300 Nikkor 18-70 DX f3.5-4.5
ISO 250

#3 (Algae on a rock) Nikon d300 Quantaray 70-300 f4-5.6
ISO 250 
300mm (macro on)

And thenceforth I bid you all adieu

just another brick in the wall


And all of a sudden I was like OHSNAP
and this happened.

brick in the wall fun

cuz the bricks were white on the cd/movie.
get it? xD
and pink, because...
Pink Floyd.
it was just for fun :] so i know its not very good but it had to be done. :P
i should have layered the pink over the sky instead or something. and then changed the opacity a little so it was less fake looking but im too lazy to go re-do the stupid thing. its my bed time :P

I wish I had a brick wall in my house somewhere.
the possibilities would be endless.
then id post 405849058 pictures of brick walls xD



f stop = f/10
exposure = 1/200
ISO = 400
Focal length = 18mm

then for the first one i did the usual curves and sharpening. i know everyone (including me) always posts old looking pictures like that but i like the affect it gives xD i dont know. i need to break my addiction to curves :P
for the second one i inverted the color and messed around with curves
then since the sky was all one color i dropped in some pink and smudged the edges of the building so it looked better. ish. lol.
