Looking West

Posted by
john4jack (Corvallis, Oregon, United States) on 26 February 2010 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

Beau and I were out for a walk in our neighborhood. A gentleman invited us up onto his deck to take this shot looking west.

BETA TESTING - I feel reasonably certain that everyone that belongs to NAPP was invited to do the testing.

MY PHOTOGRAPHY BUDDY, Bill Laing, is back up and running on Am3.

NIKON D700 1/800 second F/5.6 ISO 200 85 mm (35mm equiv.)

Ditto to Susan's remark. VERY outstanding.
Aren't you lucky to have had that invitation from your neighbor!!!
I think I need to make an arrangement with one of MY neighbors.
All the homes on the other side of the street have all the sunset views.
Guess, I'd better go knock on some doors. ;-)

When I see these pictures I always think the same ... some are like but this is far better! This for me is art. The art of making and communicating feelings at the same time. The feelings you felt when your picture and thought into how to make it! Technical merit mentioning here because it seems absurd to me is perfect and we all know. I would rather say what I feel to see it ... deep emotion! Thanks Jack for this vision that you lived! Many kisses! Adela

JJ from Jersey City, United States

Nice of him to invite you onto there deck, what an amazing view they have

I have pondered joining NAPP, but have put it off to know wondering if its worth it, would appreciate your thoughts on it

26 Feb 2010 3:59pm

@JJ: NAPP is worth every cent and then some. The money that I save through various discounts doubles, if not triples, the price of my membership. And that doesn't even count all of the good stuff that comes with NAPP.

Barbara Kile from Ft. Worth, United States

A great view! Nice neighbor. What beta testing? I'm a NAPP member.

26 Feb 2010 6:55pm

@Barbara Kile: The more that I check around, the more I find that Adobe invited some, but not all, NAPP members to do the Beta testing. The selection had to be random. When Scott Kelby first mentioned this on his blog, he indicated that not all NAPP members would be asked.
