It really is an amazing camera that can shoot at 10 fps so there may have been a few I didn't use where his hand swung in front of his face.

Chris - Excuse my ignorance, but I'm trying to learn to take better photos. Did you use auto settings for "sports" on those photos?

Sorry, just came back here and saw your question. No, this camera is geared towards pros so there isn't a setting for sports like on consumer level ones. When I shoot sports shots like this I choose the Tv setting (Time value or shutter speed priority). I prefer the shutter speed to be 1/2000 or a bit faster. I choose Auto for the aperture and let camera choose the f/stop which will typically be fairly wide open. The camera will try to choose a fairly wide aperature coupled with the lowest ISO or sensitivity as possible.

I was playing around in Lightroom last night and noticed that I have over 42,334 images with no keywords. Most of these are older images imported into my catalog from a time before I knew the importance of keywording. With Keywording you can search for a person by name or a group of people or places you have visited and depending on what you entered with a keyword that is added to the metadata you can easily find it later. That's a good thing when you have over 76 thousand pictures like I do.

So I was just skipping through these non keyworded images and found one I liked and had never done anything with. A picture of my granddaughter, Kirstyn taken at Easter, 2008. I think the kids were coloring Easter eggs. So I played with it for a few minutes and got a shot that I may end up making a print to hang on the wall with all the other grand kid pictures. For your amusement I post the original and the retouched, I cleaned color, recropped, sharpened and decreased noise and took out the spot on her shirt.

It's a keeper!

Very attractive couple, monster.

chris, you are a pretty good photographer, I'll grant that. But with subjects like that, it's hard to fail. What a cutie.

Also at the Home Opener Football game Friday (see Swim mom thread). So two reasons to be there, neither of them to do with watching football. TFSM

they ended up encasing the ratty, still-wet pool hair in a rubber band and shoving it up in the shako (hat to me) The brush was defeated.
