    In some ways not knowing too much about processing is a good thing for a beginner to digital photography ... it makes you strive harder and take more time with your shots. But in the end, good processing skills go a loooong way.
    This is my eldest son, the one fighting cancer for the 2nd time.

    No processing, just an old Nikonos and lots of particulate in the water.

    The fill flash worked perfectly for once...

    Thanks for backing me up Jimmy ... I think

    I can say the same for my processing ... without it I'm way less effective as a photographer I think.

    I have a brother and a father both fighting cancer for their times. We feel for you Cam. Between they have had prostate, non hodgekins lymphoma, Hodgekins lymphoma and I forget what type of lymphoma Dad's was. I've had a Melanoma in my neck myself.

    Go Lance Armstrong! He's got cancer foundation stuff going in 65 countries now and is actively pushing governments to fund cancer research. Awesome effort.

    JJJ - I really like your version of cadcam's rails - the birds become the focal point the tracks lead to and it makes a huge difference.

    I like that 'sneerfish' cadcam! and the underwater shot of your son.

    I'm so sorry to hear of your and MA's close family members having cancer. I do believe in the power of positive thinking so I'll be thinking positive thoughts for both of your families

    The sneerfish is a big ole wolf eel, and to do that kind of picture underwater you have reaally screwed up depth perception so the close-up lens has a bar protruding from the front of it to allow you to set the distance, and the flas units are on long arms, so it looks very formidable I am sure. He didnt like me getting that bar close ot him and when I lit off the flashes he came out of his hole, circled me twive and went back in. He was about 6 to 7 feet long and that face you are looking at is about the size of a canned ham.

    Positive vibes are where it is at. If you let cancer get on top of you, all is lost. I am my parents only son, and my son also looks to me for strength, so if they see a crack in the armor, it all comes apart like a cheap suit. I am a former Marine and like to think I am pretty tough, so I do my crying in the shower where no one can see.

    You folks can just call me Scott. Until I figured out what kind of room I was walking into, I wanted to remain as anonymous as possible, but I feel very comfortable here. Thank you for that.

    My son will be going to U of Iowa to get his chest cracked. He has three tumors trying to involve his aorta, and three on each kidney, but they caught them early. His chances are very good. His started out as testicular when he was 16. My "dad" (long story) had squamous cell carcinoma and soon as they fixed him he started smoking again. Mom had bone cancer and they had to remove her lower left mandible. Mom quit smoking.

    U of I is where Lance fought his battle.

    Best wishes to you and your family, Cadcam.

    Ha! Ha! I would not want that ugly fish anywhere near me. Snakey things give me the heebie jeebies.

    Thanks for the wishes.

    Actually they are very gentle and kind, they enjoy interacting with divers as long as you aren't too aggressive. Some like to have their belly's scratched and petted, we had a few at a site we frequent that would come out of their hole and circle us and get some frozen herring we would bring down with us.

    This picture, also for fun is one I caught popping out to grab a dungeness crab that was running from us.
