The yellow and green are straight from the camera's "vivid" setting. No photoshop saturation or contrast. In fact, I turned down the contrast... but to be honest, it really was that green...

Hi Jason,
The last photo made me smile. You look like you are dancing. Do I see some interpretive movement classes in your future? Love the onesy. Also, thanks for the picture of you and the "beanie!" I think that picture fully captures the college-guy look. We used to call those "stocking caps" back in the day. My son actually had several beanies. They came in handy to keep his head warm. When I think of a beanie hat, the first thing that comes to mind is the one with the propeller on the top! Glad your not wearing one of those around campus.

The pictures of Oregon look amazing and beautiful. I have never been there. It looks like you got some great pictures.

I hope that you, Mrs. 13 and the little 13's are doing well. Take care Jason. I hope Santa brings you the best Christmas ever.

Beautiful! Merry Christmas to you and your family. Peace.

Jason! The comparisons rock!

Sometimes color is just better. The yellow lichen (or is it sulfer?) and the green moss/lichen are amazing - it would be a shame to hide them in B&W. Composition is great. Ya know a photo works when the viewer wants to climb inside it and look around!

Good work man.

Interprative dance??!!! You'd like that, wouldn't you D? I'll see if I can get one of those "college guy" pics with a backpack next time...

Pattie, I really like the B/W's better. Yes, they seem a bit subdued, but they have more depth. However, one thing I like about FILM more than digital is the presence of mist/steam/fog/etc. With digital, it's a little too clear. With film, it's all there!

Membrain and others, thank you. It's been a wonderfully relaxing holiday, and one to remember at that!
