Here a photo of the entrance to an underground parking garage. I was attarcked to this shot because of the lighting, and in post processing chose to accentuate it by leaving it in colour. Hope you like it. It’s -16C here in Toronto this morning. Colder than a well digger’s knee. By the way, I’ve begun the process of setting up my next blog, the one to replace this one once I run out of space. The new blog will launch in the spring, I think.

    Good morning, Dave.
    What a treat for my eyes! Fantastic image for composition and chromatic choice!
    I love what you did with it. Very cool.

      Thanks Mauro. It’s something a bit different, isn’t it.

      I’ve got a question, Mauro. I’m used to having image stabilization in my camera, making it very easy to get good shots without any blurring. When I buy a new camera, it likely won’t be one with image stabilization built in. It’s not a big deal, since most lenses have it built in. But some fast primes do not. Since I’ll probably buy a couple of fast primes, this will mean I won’t have any stabilization. So the question is, do you find it difficult to keep your camera steady when taking photos? I’m assuming your Leica wouldn’t have any built in stabilization, right?

    Manufacturers are abandoning the Image Stabilization system because it works at the expense of resolution. Photographers are starting to notice that and keep the feature turned off, preferring the use of a tripod, a wider aperture or even a higher ISO.
    I personal don’t believe it is crucial in the choice of a camera.
    But, then again I don’t have:
    1) Image Stabilization;
    2) A display;
    3) Batteries;
    4) A Zoom;
    5) A review or delete button…
    Actually, I don’t have ANYTHING that would make my camera appealing to anyone, nowadays…
    Yet, I still manage to take photos and enjoy doing it. So, don’t worry! You’ll do just fine: It’s within you!

    I forgot:
    I don’t even ha a ligh meter in my camera!
    …And I love it!

    I’m surprised you’re still not using a chisel and stone tablet. 🙂

    I bought my camera off Fred Flintstone: It’s that one with the little bird inside… 🙂

    I do like the photo a lot.
    On IS, when I was younger, I had very steady hands and could hand hold rather long exposures. Let’s just say that IS has been helpful lately. I poo pooed it at first, but after a multitude of unintentionally blurred photos, I gave in.

      Thanks, Lynn.
      The IS is definitely a concern for me. The Olympus E-620 has it built into the body, so even prime lenses are stabilized. I hear Pentax DSLRs also carry in-body IS, although I Pentax isn’t on my radar at all at this point. Same with Sony, but I’m not a fan of Sony, based on reviews.
