Palace: Photographer Lorraine DarConte wrote, "The image
was photographed in Venice, Italy, during Carnivale--a very
colorful event. However, miserable weather all week rendered most
everything gray." DarConte worked with a Canon EOS Elan
with 28-80mm lens on Fujichrome 400 film.

Creek Bridge: Jack Davis sent us this study where only a touch of
green comes through of this bridge in Big Sur, California. He worked
with a Pentax LX and Pentax-A 20mm f/2.8 lens on Kodak Lumiere 100
slide film. He used a Cokin G2 graduated gray filter to help control
the sky values.

Ocean Reflections: Davor Gornik wrote, "When I saw this alignment
of beach sand, sun, waves, and the late afternoon haze I knew I
had to take a picture. I did not have any idea of what the results
would be because of the extreme contrasts. Now, an 18x24"
print hangs in my living room." Gornik used a Nikon F60 and
Sigma 70-300mm lens on Fuji Reala 100 film and exposed the shot
at 1/2000 sec at f/16.

Picture This -- Our
As the sun sets the light rakes across the horizon, making it the "golden
hour" to make photographs that would look entirely different in the middle
of the day. Waiting for directional light, and following it into the subject,
can reap great rewards. This cruise ship pulling out of Port Canaveral, a few
miles from Shutterbug world headquarters, seems to glow with promise as it makes
its way out of port.
