David Brown Photography (formally Jethrohoyt). A lifetime Yorkshire-American photographer who owned his first SLR over 40 years ago. Now having progressed to the digital age, Panoramio is the perfect vehicle for this world traveling Yorkshireman/American, multi-lingual (speaks English, American, Geordie, Yorksheer and Southern). I live in various places in North Carolina, and love kayaking, biking and hiking, laughing and thinking. Oh and photography and everything 'computer'. I have used a variety of cameras over my lifetime. Many older scanned images on Panoramio will have been taken using either a Praktika SLR, a Pentax MV SLR or later waterproof Pentax point and shoot and either negative or slide film. My first digital camera was a Sony P&S, followed by a CDHK hacked Canon S3 and then augmented by an Olympus waterproof. I now carry around a Nikon D5100 with a brace of lenses plus a tripod that I NEVER use, and I do my best to try to look like I know what I am doing! Software I use? Picasa, Luminance (formally QTPFSGUI), Photomatix, Gimp for when all else fails and Lightroom 5.3. I enjoy laughter and mean nobody any harm, laugh with me, laugh at me. Its all good. Jethrohoyt became my unique web persona after I realized there were more David Browns out there than there are Chinese people in the world. You can call me David or Jethro. People have called me worse. I can be contacted at jethrohoyt via AOL.

I wish I'd been there David, or maybe I was and can't remember, I must be the one that passed out on the lawn! :))

Thanks David.

Yes, dear David - very retro! Thanks for flying by - happy Spring (O:

Amazing plant and good photo. I have in my gallery photo of other plant without chloryphill - bird's nest orchid. Igor.

Are you in property sales now Gordon?

I see you're into nighttime photography though. Very well done if I may say so......

This one was taken as the perfect time - blue time, when some light is still left in the sky so that it doesn't appear black.

Here are some thoughts for you (as you are using a tripod), skip using the flash as it only lights up the foreground.

The ISO is perfect.

Go for longer shutter speeds 5 or 10 seconds or even 30 as necessary.

Then use a higher f number - this can give you sharper images and the blades may even give you star bursts on the lights.

If you're worried about camera shake, use a remote control (they are SO cheap) or even delayed or timer shooting. Set the timer to 2 seconds so the vibration stops before the shutter opens.

Regardless this is great stuff..... keep up the progress - David

The attack of the tripods!

Nice one.
