Welcome to the Machine


Here’s another photo from The Brickworks. We’re getting snowed in over the next few days. First real bit of snow so far. I debated staying in bed until next week, but I’ve got photos to edit and other work to do. Oh well.

  1. Great detail and color. The rig looks like something out of a comic book that a superhero would butt head with.

      Thanks Scott. Yeah, it does have that ominous comic book “look” to it, doesn’t it.
      Hey Scott, I know you’re a Nikon shooter but I was wondering if you’ve looked at that new Canon T2i DSLR? Sounds like a sweet ride, although I have yet to see any reviews. DXO Labs tested a pre-production model and the results point to it being not as good as the Nikon D90 with dynamic range and in low light situations.

      • Don’t know a lot about Canons. My stock reply is to go to a store and hold them. Look through the viewer, see how the buttons and such feel to your hand. Put on a couple of lenses and see how the camera feels in your hand.

        For me, Nikon is a step ahead of Canon on picture quality and ISO range. But I am a Nikon guy. 🙂 All of today’s DSLR cameras are light years ahead of my old Nikon D70.

        If you are not ready for a DLSR, the Canon G11 and S90 are something for you to look at.

    Scott: Thanks. I actually prefer Nikon, too. If Nikon released an updated version of the D90, like a D95 or something, I’d be all over it. I like the D90 but suspect its replacement will have better AF and live view performance, which is worth waiting for. The Canon T2i looks like a great camera, although at 18 megapixels once can’t help but wonder about high ISO performance. Or I could simply get a D300s and call it a day. 🙂 Tracy shoots with a D300, don’t you, Tracy.

    Tracy: Thanks. I don’t know why I’m drawn to this type of shot. On the other hand, the wildlife shots I’ve seen on your blog are very appealing to me also. But my lowly p & s can’t catch birds like your D300.

  4. Sweet, is this an homage to Pink Floyd? Btw, I am serious about upgrading to a D90 in the next month, I will keep you posted.

      Man I used to eat up Pink Floyd when I was younger. That’s great news about the D90. You’ll have to let me know how you like it. I’ve heard nothing but good things.
