Memorial Day Trip#1 of the season

Had a good first outing of the year. Kodachrome Basin and Bryce Canyon. Just warm enough during the day and very comfortable in the evening for camp fires and margaritas with some new friends from Denmark.

All very nice landscapes, Canonman. I especially like the composition and colors of the first one!

Thanks Scott, you can imagine Memorial Day at a National Park with warm spring like temps. Crowded! First shot was taken in the evening so that helps saturate the colors, I think it's my favorite as well.

Canonman.....as others indicated, great photos.

Did you do some HDR work on that 1st photo to get that kinda dynamic range ??

Thanks,
I will sometimes use HDR to compensate for high contrast situations. I didn't have access to my "Photomatix" software for this one. The alternative was a program I had with me called Topaz. Topaz really makes the details pop.
Here's a similar photo with no Topaz applied. I'll probably do some images using Photomatix now that we're home and see what happens.

That's a nice shot, Canonman.
I've never tried shooting fireworks; do you do anything special settings-wise?

Nice! Really nice. How many fireworks made it into that picture? Was that 3-4 secs? I have only tried it for that long but my attempts haven't worked out that well (yet!)

The basic settings I've found to work the best are:
Set the camera to manual mode
Focus to infinity
f11 or 16
(these were at 11 but if I were paying closer attention I'd have used 16)
ISO 100
Use a tripod (you can't hold still for 4 seconds) and a remote shutter release
If you can hear the mortar or see the trail wait a second or two then hit the shutter.
Repeat as needed
BTW my 8 year old grandson took these. (that's why I wasn't paying attention)
Hope the tips help
