    I work at an airport, and stopped by the maintenance garage. Lots of goodies!

    Sweet Equipment...

    What are you doing to make the pictures so vivid ? Sometimes when I'm simply resizing a picture, and I click "auto correct", it makes the colors brighten up.

    Are you pictures so detailed and rich because of the settings on the camera, or is it one of those SLR cameras with 200 million pixels ?

    I can tell you dog, if you look at the edges og the pics, that gives you a hint what he's doing with them......nice pics btw, you know your camera & lighting a bit I can tell, take more pics of other equipment you see sitting around....or getting used.

    Yeah, that would be true if I had any clue on photography other than a simple point and shoot camera and it's adjustments. I'm pure novice when it comes to cameras other than the adjustments on basic camers, such as ISO, scene mode, White balance, color effect, etc.

    He's haloing the picture with obscuring the perimeter with some .... I don't know what??, but I guess it's some form of photography / photoshop feature???

    Is he altering the Contrast ? Changing the ISO ???:confused:

    The real clue for me is the "signature" on each pic.

    Dude is a professional photog.

    Sweet EQ and pics BTW.

    Thanks guys!

    To answer your questions about the photos, all of them are edited. I don't have any special settings on the camera I use. Most photos turn out bland, and colorless for me as well. I use a photo editor called 'PicMonkey' through Smugmug.com. In that editor I go through a lot settings to make the photos like the ones above such as:

    Exposure: Shadows, Highlights, Contrast, etc

    Sharpness: Clarity, Sharpen

    Colors: Saturation, Temperature

    I play around with these levels until the image is set to my liking. Hope this helped, thanks for viewing my thread!

    Check out my website for more photos like these!

    Point and Shoot Cameras can have the same number of Pixels as a DSLR, the DSLR will always take better pictures for multiple different reasons, the most noticeable is the sensor is bigger.

    Great pics ! Does the airport plow themselves? I thought Grover plowed the runways in years past.

    Thanks! Grover still plows the runways, but only during the big storms. The City of Portland uses their own equipment for smaller storms. But both Portland and Grover plow together when big storms hit.
