Tones on Tuesday #53 11.6.12

Be sure to check out my tips and tricks for Night/Low Light Photography!

I cannot believe that November is here and October is gone. Fall has begun to fade here, but the photos from last week tell a beautiful story of the season. I had to pick 4 instead of 3 this week, I hope you don't mind!

Mona at Mona's Picturesque
Fall is ending and this is a beautiful representation of that! I love the light and color in this photo. Thank you for sharing with us Mona!

The depth of field and framing in this photo is lovely. The colors of the leaves are beautiful as well. Thank you for linking up Kathy!

This was taken before Sandy hit the East Coast, luckily Meg had little damage but I know that is not the case for many people. My thoughts and prayers are with everyone still recovering. As for this picture, the colors are stunning! A beautiful capture of the calm before the storm. Thank you Meg!

Mock-Turtle at Jack's Paper Moon
Rounding out the fall theme this week is this photo of Jack. I love the light, the muted tones and the expression captured. Thank you for sharing Mock-Turtle!

Mona, Kathy, Meg and Mock-Turtle please go HERE to grab your showcase button.

Now it's your turn to share your photo with altered tones. Here are the guidelines for Tones on Tuesday:

  • The basic idea is to share one photo where you have altered the tones. Such as a black and white, sepia toned, selective coloring or colored photo. Feel free to share the original and edit, or just the edit.
  • Please share a photo that you have taken and edited yourself.
  • One photo per photographer please. If you have more than one photo in your post please indicate which one is for Tones on Tuesday. If you link up more than once only the first photo will be considered for showcasing.
  • Please link up with your permalink and not your blog address.
  • Attach the Tones on Tuesday button or a link back here to your post.
  • Leave comments for at least 3 other participants, share the love :o)!
  • Have fun!

Guess what I did this weekend? I bought a new camera, well new to me! I have had my Rebel T1i for almost 3 years. It has been a wonderful starter camera and I have loved every minute of  using it and learning with it. It is time, though, for a camera that has capabilities that will allow my photography to continue to grow. I was very lucky to meet someone at both of the Clickin Walks I attended who was willing to let me test out the camera she was selling before buying. During the "test shoot" I used my macro lens to take a photo of some water droplets on a picnic table at a local park. I can't wait to take more pictures, explore my camera and learn more!

Settings: ISO 1000, 100mm, ss1/6400, f/2.8
