Back in Business!

So, I took my stubborn disk into work today, and we recovered everything! Whew, I couldn't believe it, what a scare! I will have to ask tomorrow what the name of the software is, and I will post it later.... What a life saver, mostly everything was snapshots of my daughter and my Parents, but I got a couple images, I would have been really sad to have lost!

Here's a few to share!

Good for you!

All four are excellent. The abstact-ness (is that a word?) of the bottom one is great. Had it been alone, I would have had to stare a while to figure out what it is.

Every body will say WAOoooOAAW !
For the last picture, so soft (like silk), so colored, it really show how nature is marvellous.
(Difficult to avoid it).

Great pics - especially the last one! Who woulda thought a mallard woudl look so glamorous?!

And you have scared me with you story of cf card failure! Was it an old card or had you recently bought it? Can't think of anything worse than losing precious photos. Lost a roll of 36 B&W photos taken on a holiday in the South of France once because I could not tell that the film in my manual Pentax ME Super had not been winding on. It still smarts to think about it!

I love the hands in the pockets. Kids are so cute when they do things like that. My son is only 18 months old and he likes putting his hands in his pockets already. How does he know?

REFLEX, thanks! you can look up a tutorial on the web, but basically I desaturate in photoshop, then paint the color back in with the history brush. It's really easy :)
CERGIE: thanks so much!
JEANNE: I hear it happens randomly to cards, as long as you don' t mess with the card if it fails, most photo processing places have recovery software, ya it was scary alright!
RHYS:funny how kids pick things up isn't it? I had my 300mm lens on and she ran way ahead of us to the lake, so I was able to take this completely candid, as soon as she figured out I had the camera on her she ran away play screaming :)
