John Hancock in Black and Blue seen from Montrose Avenue.
I went to the Chicago Air and Water Show and all I got is this lousy picture.
Yesterday I realized that the time has come to own a DSLR. I missed so many shots yesterday at the Chicago Air and Water Show due to my camera’s slow focussing speed. Not that a DSLR would guarantee focus at a F18 moving at 650 mph, but I definitely think it would help.
After weeks of research, the winner is: Canon T3I.
Once I have it in my hands, I plan on writing and posting pictures more often.
Another HDR, the camera was sitting on a wooden barrel since I didn’t have my tripod with me.

Rusty Bridge in Evanston, at Custer Avenue and Washington Street.
Three handheld shots and tone-mapped in Photomatix Pro 4.0
When creating HDRs, my intention is usually to make it as realistic as possible. I am not a big fan of the “cartoon” look, but this photo is an exception, it’s very appealing to me the way it is.
