I should've used a higher aperture for the photo, but I was probably parked in that spot for about 30 seconds before leaving. Looks fine as a sig photo, anyway.

GD-ATP designed the gun

Kaman Dayron, the company I was Director of Engineering for designed the flight computer and safe/arm device that goes in the ammo.

It's the Experience Music Project, designed by Frank Gehry. Same guy who designed the Guggenheim in Spain, Walt Disney Concert Hall in LA, amphitheater in Chicago @ Millennium Park , and so on.

Get out there and take some photos, people!
Ok Karl here goes:

Nice Alan. Looks like you're starting to get some colors in your neck of the woods. I tried to find some good fall foliage this afternoon, and took a drive to the Cascade foothills, but didn't turn up any good photo opportunities. I did find some nice twisty roads, however... Guess I'll just have to keep trying.

You should drop your exposure down. The highlights are blown out.

Hrm ok, I'm still trying to figure out how things change from camera to editing and on the little screen it seems as if the exposure was ok. I guess when its cleaned up it is a little over exposed.

How about this one?



Thanks

I'd not change much there Karl. I like it as she stands.

Looking better. It's just hard to shoot decent photos in direct sunlight. I try to avoid it if I can, especially since I don't have a full-frame DLSR with a huge dynamic range.
