Family trip to Crater Lake resulting in some scenic views. (Extra photos personal gallery.)
This was a good first learning trip for me with a budding photography hobby. I learned why solid tripods are important (wind during sunset pictures), why checking for sensor dust before a four-day trip might be important, and practiced EV+1 for snow-capped peaks.
Most pictures taken using the Canon EOS-20D and EF-S 17-85 IS lens. Most use circular polarizer. Sunset shots use Cokin graduated-gray filters (except the point-n-shoot example for comparison). For the majority of shots I used DxO to correct lens-distortion and softness and used Photoshop a bit for some curves or saturation adjustments and to fix dark spots from sensor dust. Not much else.
