17-55 & 70-200vr Visit the Oregon Coast

Discussion in 'Lens Lust' started by olddogg, Jul 19, 2008.

  1. A few recent images from the Oregon Coast. Certainly one of the most photogenic areas in the country. All of these made with D300, the first 3 are the 17-55, and the last with the 70-200.

    Beach at Oregon Dunes, pic #4, is one of the best pictures I have ever seen.

    Amazing shots!
     
  3. Nice sharp images! Love the west coast. In your last pic of the dunes I would try to bump up the fill light to get more detail in the rocks lower left. Other than that I think you did quite well. Thanks for sharing.

    Cheers

    Ted:smile:
     
  4. This picture is insanely good. Would be on my wall for sure.

    Love the first and last onesa, something is missing (colour) to me in the middle two. I have a relative in Oregon, I really need to visit one day.
     
  7. Thanks very much!

    Thank You Ted. Good suggestion. I'll give that a try. Actually, that dark area is vegetation, not rocks. Too dark in the current file to see.


    My lady and I live in a motorhome. Not much wall space.
    But I will print this one just to see it printed, and give it away, probably.


    Thanks.

    You should! Bring you camera.

    Can't see them either...

    Just a vertical line where the picture should be...
     
  12. Bummer! I can still see 'em. Maybe a mod could intervene with some help? Confusing..........
     
  13. I posted to the mods. Maybe I did something wrong here. I can still see the pics. Hopefully they can help.
     
  14. Hey guys. Apparently Smug Mug, who hosts my images is down. I hope you'll take a look back later. I'd value you opinions. Thanks

    Some great images Jack. I also like the last shot the best. Thanks for sharing them...
    BTW, I've wondered what it's like for people that live on the road with the gas prices getting so high. Seems like something I would love to do one day though...
     

  16. Thank you Cody.

    The current fuel prices have a real impact on fulltime RV'ers , no doubt.
    But when you live in your RV, you tend NOT to travel constantly, We did that for a short time early on, but that wears thin quickly. Most will travel shorter distances and stay longer. Looked at that way, the price of fuel, while it must be considered, is not a deal breaker. There are lots of opportunites to get a free space in some beautiful parks in exchange for some hours of camp hosting duties. So one can stay free for a a few months, or longer. We pull a high mileage car on our travels, and do most of our touring in it. In our case, we're currently assisting an elderly parent in Northern California, so we're stationary for now. All in all, though not for everybody, fulltiming is still a viable lifestyle choice.
