Trip to Austin

Here are some pictures from my last trip to Austin.  I had a great time, it was a fun 2 weeks.   The pictures I had the hardest time taking, are the bats coming out of Congress Ave. bridge, and the sunset at the Oasis Lake Travis.  Available light around sunset, isn’t that much when the bats come out of their sleep under the bridge.  But here are two examples.

Trying to capture the Bats

Now the second picture I got by experimenting with the Flash, even though I had a bright F1.8 lens, getting the focus, and the bats and all, was pretty difficult, and I think I can only feel lucky getting those bats pictures.

Now the second set is the sunset.  Naturally, some of those are cropped, and edited a little, usually exposure adjustments, hue, and White balance changes.  I thought it would be so much easier, well, I was wrong..

Sunset at the Oasis Lake Travis


Almost (set) down..

And finally the sun has set, I just noticed a little cropping would help this image


And well if you are interested in the rest of the pictures, you can visit my gallery here.  Enjoy, comments are welcome of course…
