Photos: Cleveland and Umstead

I have posted two new photo sets for your enjoyment.

The first is from my recent vacation, when I travelled to the city of Cleveland. The second is from last Saturday when, despite the rain, I went to Umstead Park anyway.

Both collections of pictures are quite different from one another. Cleveland has tall buildings, groups of food-giving people, prolific statues, and interesting traffic while Umstead has artsy leaves of color, a long-legged spider, a gushing river, and even more interesting leaves.

Cleveland consists of one page which is a contrast to Umstead’s three pages of pictures. Both are great sets filled with tons of great photographs. Have fun browsing the pics.

    A bit dark …

    I like your photographs, but often I feel that it’s a bit too dark.
    Are thoses pics taken with the automatic mode of your wonderful camera ? πŸ˜‰

    I got this error message when I clicked the "even more interesting leaves." link.
    Correct it!

    not an error with the site

    It’s not an error with the site. It’s out of my control. I think the machine is hitting some type of limit, possibly a kernel limit. It cannot execute any more stuff as the apache user, I am guessing. Just a hunch though. It happens on rare occasions. Just wait a bit, and reload… it should correct itself with a little bit of time.

    re: A bit dark …

    No, I don’t shoot in auto-mode with my camera. Some may be dark, others may be light — it depends on the actual exposure. Most all of the photographs should be properly exposed, however.

    I typically don’t alter the images before I post them here. It’s pretty much straight from the camera.

    All in all, they are not dark. Make sure your monitor is calibrated — it sounds like its settings are incorrect. The contrast should be all the way up and the brightness should be at a level where you should be able to tell the difference between the darkest grey and pure black.

    For step-by-step instructions, check out a quick guide on how to calibrate your brightness. Tigert pointed out this particular page on his website, although there are many others on the ‘Net.

    gallery comments

    You should implement some commentary feature for your gallery. πŸ™‚ Nice pictures; like know. Your new Canon makes wonderful pictures. I used a lot of your pictures as desktop backgrounds so far. Gee. πŸ™‚
