Scott Jarvie444,079*POST YOUR GOOGLE+ ALBUM OF PICTURES* It's been very very popular event in the past and I'm finally doing it again tonight. _This time it will be more organized, more heads up than usual and even a live event._ *SHARE AN ALBUM/GALLERY LINK* It's simple and easy but a lot of work and very fun for all. You simply share an album here and I'll be going through every single one of the albums. Then I will +1 the pictures in the album that I'm really drawn to. *BENEFIT* Well it's simply if you'd love to know which pictures I like most.  I always loved knowing which pictures people really love of mine because it helps me have an eye for which pictures are best received. It's a huge part of becoming a better photographer in my opinion. _*To be able to put out great art is first to know what great art looks like*_ *ON AIR* This will be something new... I'm going to go through all the albums Live, Online as an On-Air hangout. I'll talk a little bit about what I'm doing. If the show goes well I'll keep it for later viewing on YouTube... if the recording isn't great I won't. *SPECIAL GUEST* Because I want to have an outloud conversation about what and why I'm doing things  I will have my good friend and great photographer @109486822103622036238 on the show to facilitate the discussion. She will also visit a lot of these albums and +1 pictures as well. We ask that everyone add her to a circle ... not just because she's awesome (though that's reason enough) but so that if any of these albums are by mistake limited access she will have access. *DIRECTIONS* 1. Paste a link of a Google+ image gallery 2. Put a title or description of what we'll see in the album 3.  *IMPORTANT* If you post a link you hereby give us permission to use a screenshare view of all those pictures and perhaps your profile in a recorded Youtube video. 4. Make sure the album is Public access 5. Add @100962871525684315897  @109486822103622036238 to your circles 6. Return the favor. Take some of the other people's albums and +1 some of your favorites. *IMPORTANT* It bears repeating: _If you post a link you hereby give us permission to use a screenshare view of all those pictures and your profile (maybe) in a recorded Youtube video._ Do not post a link if you are not ok with lots of people visiting that link in addition to us and are not ok with it being on video as well.Share your Album- A Jarvie PlusOne Critique Experience2012-09-12 05:30:00141

Inbetwixt Winter and Spring

OK, one more waterfall and then I promise to post something else (though I do still have a few more waterfall shots;) This is the second waterfall on Shays Run which flows past the Blackwater Falls lodge and down into the Blackwater Canyon. This is one of my favorite waterfalls in the park and I have a summer view hanging on the wall in our house. Highly recommended if you happen to visit the Blackwater Falls area. Given it's almost Friday... have a great weekend!

Falls Run @ Blackwater Falls State Park

Decided to go back through my shots from my visit to #BlackwaterFallsStatePark this past October an decided to work on this view of Falls Run. This waterfall needs a lot of rain to have enough flow to shoot and I was fortunate enough to visit the park under good conditions. Any time of year is good to visit this beautiful park. I highly recommend a visit!!

Happy Monday!

Lone Stone Standing

These little pools at Davenport Beach, CA are really cool but I had a hard time finding a comp I liked as the sun approached the horizon. This is my favorite of my sunset shots that evening. It's clear that at times the waves reach the cliffs on the right. Thankfully the tide wasn't that high though a few waves did reach to this flat area of pools. Hope you are having a great week. Happy Tuesday!

Tunnel View

I love this tunnel in the rock at Shark Fin Cove though while we were there the tide was such that you couldn't get very far into the tunnel without getting soaked. As I was shooting with a 10stop ND filter I had to shoot with my tripod and I wasn't about to risk my camera for a shot. So this is as close as I got:) Low tide here might be really cool!

Happy Sunday and have a great week!

Shark Fin Cove

I had the immense pleasure last night getting to shoot Shark Fin Cove with +Alex Lapidus, +Linda Villers and +David R Robinson. There wasn't much of a sunset but we made the best of it and had a blast. This was my first time shooting at Shark Fin and I found a number of different comps that I like. I'd definitely go back again:)

Have a wonderful Friday!

The Davenport Crack

Have you ever felt off your game when coming back from a shoot? That's the way I felt last night as I perused my images after shooting at Davenport Beach. I looked through all the images and nothing really "grabbed" me as a great image. It's like all my comps were slightly off. Not sure if that's just being out of practice shooting landscapes over the last couple of weeks, or not concentrating hard enough.

That said, there are lots of elements I like in this image; the highlighted splash, the colors of the rocks, moss and foam, and the sunset glow in the sky. My issue is that the composition feels off. Like the lines in the image are competing.

Feel free to add your thoughts:) Critiques welcome!!

Spring Green

I love golden hour and spring greens. These are blossoms from one of our flowering crabapple trees. I finally got some time on Sunday evening and spent it taking pictures.

So now my big question:) I'm very curious as to how many people think this image has too much negative space. Personally, it feels like maybe a little too much but I didn't like it with less.

Awaken my soul...

After a week of craziness I woke this morning to a beautiful quiet and still morning. Clear light filtered through the trees, the birds were in full song and I got a change to get behind my camera and shoot some of our spring flowers:) What a great way to start this beautiful day in Virginia!

Sitting on the Doorstep of Evening

I finally got my taxes filed on Saturday and so Sunday evening I headed up to one of my favorite landscape locations for sunset; Bears Den on the Appalachian Trail. The sky didn't explode with color but it sure was nice to just sit in the quiet (there weren't too many people around) and watch the sun go down. I've enhanced this image to match my "vision" of the evening:)

Spring is in full swing

So today we had snow flurries much of the day:) Our Daffodils are almost all gone as are the flowering cherry blossoms. However, the tulips are going strong and the azaleas are starting to bloom. I'm looking forward to the rest of our spring. Here is one of our many grape hyacinths.

The Butterfly

Found in the Niagra Falls Butterfly Conservatory. This little gal (or guy) just stayed perfectly still no matter how close I got:) Tonight we celebrated my son's 18th birthday with Thai food and watching a movie together. What a fun evening (and NO taxes; though they still aren't filed... maybe tomorrow? :)

Have a wonderful weekend!

Liquid Ice

I needed a break from doing my taxes (yes I'm still working on them... sigh) so decided to get caught up on G+ and edit a photo. I can't tell you how many hours I've spent on taxes and that means time I'm not doing things with the family (IRL or here online:) Now it's late (for me) so I'll leave you with this image of the first falls on Falls Run in Blackwater Falls State Park.

Blue hour at Niagra Falls

So this image is very similar to one I posted earlier just take at a little bit earlier in the evening. I used 3 shots (manually bracketed) for this image. These were all taken before 8:30pm when the Canadian lights were turned off for Earth Hour (something I didn't find out about until the next day:) I love the mist rising from the falls in the cool air (it was probably below freezing by this time in the evening) and the gloaming back dropping the city skyline.

Have a great week!

To stand still and take it all in...

Last night I had to drive down to Marshall, VA to pick up some grass feed beef from a local farmer. As I was leaving the house I decided to put the camera in the car just in case (I did leave my tripod at home) and I'm glad I did:) On the way home the sky started to come alive! I stopped once before the sun had set and while the clouds are cool the photo itself ended up kind of flat. I then stopped again as the more and more color appeared in the sky. I have to say, with no tripod, I'm very thankful for all the fences in this part of rural Virginia. I was able to balance my camera on a fence post and use my self timer to get an exposure bracketed series.

In the end, I had frozen meat that was thawing in the back car so I didn't "stand still and take it all in" but it sure would have been nice:)

Coming into focus

My description of spring though some may say it is very much "in focus" right now:) This week has been crazy busy for me and Thurs morning as I was heading out to take a few flower pictures before work my son asks... "Are you or Mom taking me to school early today?" Well that would be me so I went out and took a few pictures (including this one) before rushing to getting ready for work and dropping off my son early:) It might sound like I'm complaining but I wouldn't trade my life and kids for anything! The flowers will still be there many years after the kids have left the house:) Hopefully you're not swamped in taxes and had a good week. Happy weekend!!

Sunshine & Mist

Pardon the railing... I tried as much as possible to remove it from the shot but there was no way to hang my camera out over the cliff and shoot back at the waterfall. Not that I would have risked it anyway:) It doesn't bother me too much and I like this view of part of the American Falls with Horseshoe Falls obscured by its mist. There were a number of decent comps from this overlook and possibly some more on the trail back from Goat Island that I didn't try and shoot. Have a great week!

Happy Easter! (He is Risen!)

Spring Blossoms

This has been a crazy weekend for me getting pulled in many different directions. On the positive side, my wife and I are taking a pottery class teach us how to "throw" pots. Boy is it fun! Definitely recommended! Tonight, while my wife was finishing up dinner I ran outside with my camera and got a few shots of our spring flowers. These pink flowering plum flowers are some of my favorite spring blossoms.

Happy Easter!

Douglas Falls

I'm still working through images from my quick trip to Blackwater Falls State Park a few weekends ago. This is a vertical comp similar to the horizontal comp I posted a few weeks ago. This is one of my favorite waterfalls to shoot though unfortunately, the available comps have been affected by downed trees and this perspective is one of the few that doesn't require wading the stream (something I haven't tried before). You do have to climb down the side of an old wall (5'-6') to get to the rocks where you can get this vantage point. Totally worth it:) Have a great weekend!

Glowing Orange

I think my son's favorite activity of our quick vacation to Niagra Falls was the Butterfly Conservatory. He had lots of butterflies land on him. I also had a blast trying to capture the many different species with my camera:) This is one of my favorites with the backlit wings.

At the base of the falls

Exploring Niagra Falls was so much fun and we did a bunch of the touristy things on Sunday. One of those was to go to the portals behind the falls and the platform near the base of the falls. Unfortunately, we couldn't go down to the lowest section because it was covered in ice. Still we had this beautiful view from a covered platform.

This image is the result of a 5 shot HDR processed in Lightroom and On1 Photo 10. I really liked the B&W treatment from a preset I have in Lightroom.

Happy Wednesday!

Hey look, lights!

So Sunday evening my son and I walked over to the Canadian side of the Niagra "river" to check out the colored lights on the American and Horseshoe Falls. We had a great time enjoying the sites and taking pictures.

Radiating Glow

Another frozen soap bubble from earlier this year. I like the way the sensor captured the light from the sun (it's what's really creating the rays).

Where are the lights?

Last night my kids and I walked down to the American side of Niagra Falls at sunset. After taking a few shots, we walked across the bridge to "Goat Island" to checkout the view of Horseshoe Falls from the American side (they are doing a bunch of work and you can't really see the falls). On the way back we stopped at the American Falls waiting for the lights to shine on the falls... and we waited... and we waited. We were all really cold and finally bailed at 8:45pm (there were supposed to come on at 8:30). Don't know what happened as the website says they were supposed to start at 8:30pm. Oh well, we'll probably try again tonight.

Happy Sunday!

Dewy Pearls

So I was looking for a shot earlier this spring that would work for the WHITE category of the Chrysta Rea scavenger hunt. I was hoping all the dew drops would look white (and I did get a shot that came out good enough for the category) but as I processed this image it took a darker turn. I do like the way this edit highlights the drops of dew.

Have a great weekend!

Classic Elekala

On my trip to Blackwater Falls State Park, I had to stop at the first waterfall on Shays Run. This waterfall often has swirls in the pools and I was fortunate to find one during my visit. With the added snow and icicles it was fun to shoot this waterfall from a couple different perspectives. Thankfully it wasn't super cold so I wasn't too worried about my camera:) Have a great Thursday!

This is another shot from last spring as our grape hyacinths aren't blooming yet. I do hope to have some fresh spring flowers soon. Just need to find the time to get some pictures. I did see some flowering trees on my way to work this morning that could be interesting:)

Sounds of Spring

I very excited to see all the buds and flowers just starting to bloom here in VA. This shot is from last spring and what was so striking when I went out to shoot our weeping cherry blossoms was the sound. There must have been a ton of bees as there was a constant buzz in the air. It was wonderful! Have a great week!

Inbetwixt Winter and Spring

OK, one more waterfall and then I promise to post something else (though I do still have a few more waterfall shots;) This is the second waterfall on Shays Run which flows past the Blackwater Falls lodge and down into the Blackwater Canyon. This is one of my favorite waterfalls in the park and I have a summer view hanging on the wall in our house. Highly recommended if you happen to visit the Blackwater Falls area. Given it's almost Friday... have a great weekend!

Snowy view of Falls Run

I was first shown this beautiful waterfall by my friend Randall Sanger. You can find his work on his website (http://www.randallsanger.com) and on Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/randallsangerphotography). If you are interested in any workshops in West Virginia I highly recommend checking out the ones on his website.

To get to this waterfall you need to scramble down the hillside and through a rhododendron thicket. Actually I was very thankful for the rhododendrons as they provided something to hold on to while scrambling down the hillside:) They also provide some beautiful green to contrast with the snow.

Hope everyone is having a great Wednesday!

Spring Thaw at Douglas Falls

I took a very quick trip over to the Blackwater Falls State Park in West Virginia leaving Friday and returning Saturday afternoon. I would love to spend a winter weekend up there some time... maybe next winter:) I decided to use a shorter shutter speed for these shots (partly because I didn't feel like pulling my ND filter out of my bag:) to increase the texture in the water. Hope you are having a great weekend!

Perception

Today's scavenger hunt photo is of a frozen soap bubble backlit by the rising sun. You can find many more images of the word "Perception" in this post:

https://plus.google.com/+ChrystaRae/posts/PMPdT8UxgVk

I think the season for frozen soap bubbles is past here in Northern VA unless we get a very uncharacteristic cold spell. I didn't get as many shoots in this winter as it was warmer than the past winters but I still managed to get a few in and had a great time.

Happy #MacroMonday!

Frozen Waterfall

This is a wider view of the waterfall near Harper's Ferry, WV. I'm sure by now all this ice and snow is long gone:) My brain is slowing down (as I'm sure you can tell from the title) so I'm going to head to bed. Have a wonderful Sunday!

Cinnamon

So I'm once again participating in the +Chrysta Rae scavenger hunt. You can find out more about this fun event by checking out the full album of shared photos on "cinnamon" here:

https://plus.google.com/u/0/photos/113977984500465768287/album/6255365360854913809

I used my macro lens and macro extension tubes to get the closeup and shot multiple f/stops playing with DoF in the background and foreground.

In the end, I merged two shots for this image and then added some subtle texture in the bokeh areas of the image.

Hollow Brook Falls

Hiked over to Hollow Brook Falls this afternoon. The water was flowing better than normal which was nice. Unfortunately, there is a tree across the falls at the bottom which made camera placement difficult. Given there is not much color during winter months, I decided to process this one in B&W. Have a great week!

Water & Ice

Visited a small waterfall near Harper's Ferry, WV on Sunday. It had been below freezing for a few days and there was lots of ice on the rocks and around the waterfall. I got there a little late in the afternoon and shot until I was running out of light. This isolation is one of my favorite shots from the trip.

Caught in the state of deflation

Yesterday morning we had some cold temperatures; cold enough to shoot frozen soap bubbles. However, Sunday was also Valentines Day and my wife and I got up around 6:15 and made chocolate crepes for breakfast for the kids. That did not leave a very big window to try and sneak in some shots before needing to eat breakfast and leave for church. It turned out to be a tad too windy for my normal process and the only bubble that stayed together long enough to freeze was this one... that had landed on the ground in the front garden. That meant lying down on the ground to get a good angle. Unfortunately, as I was trying to maneuver my camera into the correct position, my foot hit my jar of bubble solution and knocked it over:) So that was the end of any bubble shooting yesterday. If we happen to get cold enough temps again this year, I may make some more solution;... more »

Cold Dawn

I was looking back through old photos this afternoon and this one resonated with me as the wind is blowing outside and it's about 18 F. The morning I took this felt the same way. It was a little crazy being out shooting the blowing snow as the sun came over the hill:) At the moment we don't have any snow but there is the possibility of getting some on Monday... we'll see.

Snow White

One more from the brief snow we had earlier in the week. I love the way a wet snow clings to every branch. The snow didn't last long and in many places was completely gone by afternoon. Have a great weekend!

Just a quick post to share one of our sunrises after the big snow a few weeks back. The sunrises and sunsets have been very beautiful recently but unfortunately I haven't been able to get out to shoot them. Praying your week ahead is filled with peace and tranquility.

Falls Run @ Blackwater Falls State Park

Decided to go back through my shots from my visit to #BlackwaterFallsStatePark this past October an decided to work on this view of Falls Run. This waterfall needs a lot of rain to have enough flow to shoot and I was fortunate enough to visit the park under good conditions. Any time of year is good to visit this beautiful park. I highly recommend a visit!!

Happy Monday!

Colors of Dawn

Looked out the window this morning and realized it was going to be a beautiful sunrise so I grabbed my camera and tripod and rushed out the door. Thankfully it was pretty easy going on our road (a plow had come through opening a single lane) but as soon as I needed to get out of the plowed area, I had to climb over 3ft walls (from the plow) and then through drifts there were up to my thighs at times. I suppose snow shoes would have helped substantially:) It was worth it though as the sunrise was beautiful and I love how the cloud colors reflect off the snow. Have a wonderful Monday!

Ripples in the Moonlight

Woke up early this morning after the big winter storm and trudged down to the end of the driveway. The moon was still up and I love the way it highlights the undulations in the snow. Today has been sunny and bright, the driveway is clear and we still have power: so many blessings to be thankful for:)

Have a great week ahead!

Stay away from my suet!

So most of my day today has been clearing snow. It's still coming down and I'll have a bunch more to clear by evening. I'm so thankful my son was here to help with the work as it would have taken a lot longer without him:) We still have power (which is a huge blessing) and I hope to get out to take some landscape shots. Not sure how well it will work with the snow coming down. Took this one through the window so the detail and clarity aren't the best. I also used my back up camera (a Canon 40D) as it has an APSC censor and that makes my 150mm lens reach a littler further.

Have a great Saturday!
