    I appreciate the EXIF information. I'm learning a lot just looking at that. :D

    Argh, I hate when people do that.

    Oh well, enjoy it. :) I might turn it off here soon.

    Thanks guys!

    Why do you hate when people look at exif?

    Mostly because of all the bull that Lightroom puts into it. I like showing aperture, focal length, camera body, whether the flash fired, all the relevant stuff, but that exif is 8 miles long because Lightroom decides it needs to embed all of the possible changes, even if you didn't touch a setting.

    I'm looking into exif rewriters or telling Lightroom to tone it down. There's also apparently a movement out to have Flickr offer a medium-level exif display, which would be the ideal.

    I just found this and will be playing with it tonight to see how it works.

    I love having as much metadata in a file as possible and that's one of the things I really like about Lightroom, I add a ton of it by hand too. Geolocation, people, keywords, etc. But I can understand why you'd want to strip away the superfluous stuff.

    Aaaand replacing the shots screwed the links for display. The hyperlinks still work, but no image. Apologies all. :D

    Hmm... I'm thinking I need to start watching this thread. Some great stuff in here.

    Here's one of my fav's. Taken at the 2007 MI Renaissance Festival. They have Raptor demo's now, where a guy shows some different aspects of falconry and talks a lot about the birds and the history of the sport. Very cool stuff. The earlier shows were falcons and hawks. The last show was a great horned owl, which is when I got this one. I had to take about 60 shots to get him to look at me dead-on like that, and had to use the flash to get enough light (was about 7pm in September).

    Only processing was a few tweaks in the curves, and red-eye reduction (on-body flash)

    I took this on July 10, 2009 at the San Diego Zoo's Wild Animal Park:

    I've been using Aperture for the pictures I have already taken, however I am about to get a Cannon EOS Rebel XSi and am considering Lightroom to handle my RAW images since it is a 64 bit app and Aperture is still 32 bit. Not really sure though.

    Lightroom is a fantastic app. My entire workflow is handled within it - highly recommended.

    last weekend late afternoon. I just increased the contrast and saturation a little bit.

    last one from the same day. I am not able to join the photo-a-day challenge since one-day-a-week is the most I can spend for photography for now.

    You can still submit a picture to the photo-a-day challenge. None of us has taken a photo for every single day (except maybe marushka!)

    I'm just not so sure of how it doesn't make copies and saves of the files and saves all the edits as a history instead, rendering and whatnot on lookup. It's a good idea, but it makes it more difficult to backup the catalog and is annoying when moving hard drives/reformatting.

    I don't understand your concern. Keeping the edit history separate from the base images is a way to edit the same file multiple ways, retain your originals, or undo all or any of your actions.

    How is it more difficult to back up? It backs up the catalog weekly automatically. When you switch drives or computers, you copy the relevant lrcat files, drop them into the new install folder, and point the directory structure in the Library module to where your base images now live.

    Install it to non-C:\ and all you'll have to do is clone the drive and expand the partition to move up in available disk size. It's really quite easy; the app does a great job of letting you reassign where your image folders are.

    I ran across this farmhouse in my travels over the past month. I thought it was abandoned, based on the general state of disrepair. I had my wife stop the van we were driving, and I got out and shot a few photos of it. Suddenly, a car drove past us into the driveway and a large man with no shirt came out of the house to greet it. He shot me a threatening glance as I jumped back in the van and yelled "go! go! go!"

    Much better version:

    And another picture I played with:

    I was playing around with a "lomo" tutorial to spice up a picture that was kinda boring from my walk. I like it!
