I love all of these... the color the best. I just want to reach out and touch it!

Irene said...

In your first set of two I like the color one best. In the next set of three, I like the middle one best.

Holly said...

I like the same way Irene does. I like the muted colors in the middle on best.

Becca said...

Love them both, I couldn't decide which one I liked better.

The BW is stunning to me in the top picture. It looks like you have all had a great time. The raincoat picture is quite cute!

Rhea said...

Gorgeous, dramatic photos! I like the color.

These are totally awesome pictures. Fabulous work, they are amazing. Do you shoot in RAW?

Darcy @ LWM3B said...

Okay, I have read every. single. post you've written for at least a year...

but that last photo...

oh my goodness gracious.

You could shoot for National Geographic.

Thanks, All.

And how fun to have Mrs. AND Mr. Darcy show up in the same comments ;-). And Darcy - such a nice new profile pic. Your personal photographer is doing some nice work with that new Christmas surprise.

BoyDad- nope, just jpg. I tried RAW a couple times, and you can certainly achieve some neat effects with it; but ultimately, I like to process as little as necessary. RAW seemed to need more of EVERYTHING - more cf cards, more download time, more processing time, more computer storage ... more time in the day.

I am partial to the color...but then, those are the colors I grew up around, since I lived less than an hour from Zion national park.

ps I do have to say, that first BW does look very Ansel Adams-ish. Good job!

Despite the un-ideal conditions of your trip, you have managed some uber dramatic shots!! Gorgeous! I like the color and b&W in this post. If I HAD to choose one, I MIGHT choose the b&w. :)

I've been out of town and trying to catch up on things, but I wanted to say thank you VERY much for choosing my hubby's photo for your 4th place image at I Heart Faces! I was quite surprised, and pleasantly so. Thank you!!!

I also am drawn to the color photos, but the B&W are stunning. I agree with Darcy ~ you need to apply to the National Geographic magazine. They'd hire you in a heartbeat!
