Another try at macro

Just a few more test shots, only this time I was trying to use a grey card but im a little confused on how exactly it works. I noticed some noise when opening them in PS, Im assuming my shutter speed was to high but these were done indoors so the light wasn't very strong coming in the window. Any CC would be appreciated.

Little fish

This is my Nephew Braeden, Every chance he gets he is in the pool and if you don't make him get out he won't. He is learning to do dive's but when he does them there more like a belly flop. He loves to use his snorkel and mask and swim under water from the shallow end to the deep end. I was surprised to see him swimming without any floater's but he did really well, When I saw him last summer he had to wear floaters, was affraid to go under water and would barely leave the step and now he's just like a little fish.

I have been practicing macro's for awhile now but haven't posted any yet so this is my first real macro's. I would love some CC on these because something about my macro's are not doing it for me and Im not sure what it is, am I being to picky, are they out of focus, is the comp not right? Give me your opinion please. I forgot to mention but all these flowers are about the size of my finger nail so they are tiny which they don't look like they are.

Keith Urban in Concert June 8, 2007. Love,Pain & the whole crazy thing. World tour kick-off. US Airways center, Phoneix AZ.

By far the best concert I have ever been to, it might be because Keith Urban is my favorite country singer and the hottest man alive, lol, or because we had floor seats so we were able to go right up to the stage so we were so close to him it was awesome. I took over 300 pictures but I can't add all of them,lol, so these are a few of my favorite's. I wasn't able to take my good camera in so I was stuck using the crappy point and shoot camera, we don't realize how crappy the point and shoot camera's are until we use the DSL camera's for awhile but im just happy that I was able to go see Keith Urban and at least get some decent picture's. Also the camera I used put out so much noise in some of my picture's so I needed to go through them and adjust the noise. Keith had worn a sun's jersey with his name on the back for one of his song and at the end of the song he took it off and threw it out right by me and me and 2 other girls had our hands on it but then the girl that was in the middle of me and the other girl dove for it and knocked it out of my hands and the 2 other girls were on the floor fighting for it, I was bummed I wasn't the one that got it but I still had a awesome time and he put on a awesome show.

Winner of American Idol (Jordin Sparks)

Im not much of an american idol fan but do watch the beggining of them all so while my sister, niece and I was at the Keith Urban concert (yes some of those pictures are coming soon) my sister and I was walking back to our seats and my sister got so excited and said hey there is Jordan Sparks and I didn't know who she was talking about and she said it was the winner of the last american idol. She said she wanted a picture of her so we went back to where she was sitting (and yes we had better seats than her haha) lol. She was so sweet to take the time for her fans and take pics and give autographs. Julie wanted more than just a pic of her, she wanted a pic of her with her in it so this made Julie's night even better. Considering the camera I had to use it didn't come out to bad, I really wish I could of taken my better camera in because I know I could of gotten so many better pictures but the camera I had did the job.

Light show in Vegas

So many pictures I can post but this is the last I will be posting of Vegas (promise). Time to move onto something else and hopefully start posting the themes. For those who have never been to Vegas these pictures are from a light show on Femont street, the street is pretty long and has a huge screen going all the way across it and once it gets dark they do differnt light shows throughout the night, this one in paticular was of space ships and aliens fighting. The screen is so huge that you can actually see the lines in the pictures so there is no need to adjust your monitor, lol.

More of Vegas

Here are a few from the venetian, I love this place because of the gondolas. The first 2 are from outside and the 3rd one is inside the casino. Not sure why but these look clearer and better looking in PS than they do on the blog.

This guy was amazing, he didn't move except when someone gave him money he stuck up his thumb. That would drive me crazy to not be able to move.
