Re: Sorrento, Pompeii, Italy

Yildiz, So very true. Here are the images from the brothel. They seem to be more embracing the promiscuity than today in some countries. https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/48746465948_3d38ee89f7_b.jpg https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/48746465248_41cfa941c6_b.jpg https://live.staticflickr.com/655...

Re: Rhine Cruise

Ossie,
Thank you. It was a reunion of some of my engineering mates who all turned 60 this year.
Some, I have not seen in 43 years but it was as if we met just the previous month.

Wonderful capture, Valery. That part of the world is still on my to-go list. :-)

Re: Sorrento, Pompeii, Italy

I worry about those frescos exposed to elements too. Grooves made by roman chariot wheels. https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/48746994822_3ce9231676_b.jpg [url=https://flic.kr/p/2hgA8Xu] https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/48746808846_5b5661af92_b.jpg Spa https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/4874698...

Re: Sorrento, Pompeii, Italy

My pleasure Yildiz. Sorrento is a hill top town. You want beach, you either walk down or take an elevator (2E for round trip). https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/48746552213_e2ddbb07d1_b.jpg https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/48747063477_d9493f08ff_b.jpg Vesuvius from Sorrento https://live.staticf...

Re: Sorrento, Pompeii, Italy

Thank you Yildiz for your comments. As for the #3, I am told all these items are hand made and it takes about 3 months to make one. My understanding is that it is a specialty of the area. That is why no two pieces look alike. https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/48746572828_4749e45aae_b.jpg That is w...

Sorrento, Pompeii, Italy

Continuing on, the penultimate day of the cruise was a day in Naples with trips to Sorrento and Pompeii.

Re: Milkyway Redux

JB, Thank you. I have a MS in EE and worked in the SW side (Computer Aided Design for Integrated Circuits). So you are spot on as to my background. :) As for the technique I did look at the link you posted previously and I was looking at another youtube video for a different technique for landscapes...

Re: Milkyway Redux

Blurring was due to misalignment. The older one was HDR of 3 bracket shots so the alignment was almost on target. Where as I did 10 image stack that has some inherent misalignment because I did not think through about stacking at the time of shooting. So I settled for dramatic milky way over blurry ...

Milkyway Redux

I came across this freeware SW called Sequator that does stacking and aligning stars and redid my Milkyway using it. This one used Sequator to stack and align the images. That's why the landscape is a bit fuzzy but am able to get more info from the images. Feedback appreciated. https://live.staticfl...
