Thank you for this great comment, Elisa. 🙂

Your welcome! Your photographs are like breathing fresh air, a wonderfully invigorating moment.

Either you have abseiled into a volcano, or you’re getting really intimate with your fireplace with a telephoto lens. I sure hope it’s the latter!
November 28, 2012 at 4:45 am
Right on, with the volcano; I was aiming for lava. (I have pneumonia at the moment, and my posts have been a representation of my experience with that). I created the image from shadows and light on a wall coming through a window. No actual volcano was involved in the making of this photograph. 🙂

So very sorry to hear of your distress! Please take best care of yourself (and/or make sure that someone else helps with that), and may your recovery be as quick as possible!

Thanks, Gary. I’m hopefully on the mend. 🙂

Fire was what I was going for. I’m breathing lava these days (pneumonia). The image itself is created from shadows and light coming through a window on a wall. The colors, I created in Lightroom.

Wow! Well done. And get well soon, Melanie. Best wishes to you.

This looks like a boiling Hell. But what is it?
November 28, 2012 at 2:16 pm
Just me messing around in Lightroom with a different section of the same light and shadows on the wall. 🙂 My lungs are on fire. I have to entertain myself somehow. 🙂
November 28, 2012 at 6:32 pm
Those colors! Appears organic, but not sure…
November 28, 2012 at 4:24 pm
I achieved the colors in Lightroom. The image itself is from shadows and light coming through a window on a wall.
Melanie, I am Deeply sorry to hear about your illness. I hope you are feeling better soon. What a visual display this image must be of what you are feeling. 😦
For Christmas, my mom and wife went in together to give me money to buy a camera. I am telling you this because I just ordered it from Amazon yesterday, and it is a Lumix. After all the impressive images I have seen of yours, I am really excited about what I might be able to do with this new camera. I am fully aware that much of what comes out of a camera is the result of the skill of the one wielding it. But with a vast array of improved features, it will definitely be easier to get the shots I want.
In megapixels alone I will be jumping from 6 to 10. I am looking forward to getting in closer to my subject. The larger, and higher resolution LCD display will be nice as well. All the features and modes will be fun to play around with. I have always wanted to experiment with HDR but my previous camera was not equipped for it.
Well, I could go on, and on about the camera, but since you have one, I am not telling you anything you don’t already know.
Take care, rest up and get well. 🙂

Thank you, Rick, for your good wishes and kind words. I’ll be back in the swing of things soon.
I’m so delighted to hear you’re getting the Lumix!! What a great Christmas present! As you know, I have been extremely happy with the Lumix. Did you get the LX5? If so, I highly recommend the manual by Alexander White (if you like manuals, that is; I know some people prefer to wing it). I’m still a newbie when it comes to photography, and so really felt a guide would be useful for me, and this one really takes you through the camera step by step (and I really mean step by step). Here is a link to the guide if you’re interested: http://www.amazon.com/Photographers-Guide-Panasonic-Lumix-LX5/dp/0964987597/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1354196906&sr=1-1&keywords=panasonic+lumix+lx5
I can’t wait to see some of your first shots with the camera. The macro setting is unbelievable: I can almost literally place my lens on the object I’m shooting, it’s that good. (That took some practice in the beginning, I must say; so don’t worry if it takes some time to figure that out.) The Leica lens is what makes all the difference, I think.
I just know you’re going to have so much fun! I can’t wait to see some slime mold up close… really close! 🙂

I ended up getting the Lx7 because this camera was $200 off during the recent internet sales, making it only $50 more than the Lx5. Although the Lx5 has a sensor that is 20% larger, the Lx7 has some nice features including a wider aperture and faster continuous shooting. It also has a ring on the lens to adjust aperture on the fly.
I really do need to get a step by step guide to learn the basics. If they don’t make one for the Lx7, I’m sure the Lx5 manual would be close enough to be extremely helpful.
It will definitely be a challenge to adjust to a new way of shooting macro. Almost all the close-up photos from my PowerShot were done at around 2 feet away. Getting right up to the subject will be hard to get used to.
I hope you are feeling better and getting your strength back.

That’s great you got a deal on the LX7. Its sounds like it has some really good features. I think you’ll enjoy getting right up on your subjects with the macro lens; it really changes how you view the world. 🙂 I am starting to feel better now, thank you.

This is a wonderful image. I’d like to see the original. You sound as if you need some inhalation therapy! Good grief! Demand a nebulizer for that awful lung problem! Even Charlie’s pediatrician prescribed nebulizer treatments for him, and he didn’t have pneumonia! Take care of yourself.
November 29, 2012 at 5:30 am
I’m glad you like my experiment. The shadow coming through the trees and old window into our upstairs hall in the late afternoon hall makes for some very interesting images. I’m looking forward to it every afternoon, now, to see what’s there. It’s different everyday. I’ll check into a nebulizer. I’m assuming Charlie has asthma or severe allergies? With everything else going on, I waited too long to deal with this (over 6 weeks), and so now I’m paying for it. When will I learn…
November 29, 2012 at 3:07 pm
No, Charlie doesn’t have asthma or any lung condition. He had a respiratory infection, and his doctor prescribed the nebulizer treatments to clear his lungs to be sure he didn’t get a pneumonia. Those things work amazingly well. I love the effects you are getting with the shadows! WOW. I saw the last ones today. They looked precisely as I expected having seen the orange one. I’ve never seen shadows produce these kinds of effects. VERY interesting!

wonderful experiment…and while I wish you a speedy recovery, I admire the connection between the photos and your current state…amazing how things lead our minds sometimes…moving….
November 29, 2012 at 3:50 pm
Thank you, Scott. I think I’m on the mend now. I agree that it’s amazing where our minds can go… I like being able to give some kind of form or image to what I see in my imagination.
November 30, 2012 at 2:00 pm
You’re welcome…and I’m very glad to hear/know that you’re on the mend now…and you’ve done very well in giving form to what lives in your imagination…it’s always a pleasure visiting with you….

I really hope you get well soon Melanie!!
