Thank you Lowepro

I use a Lowepro Slingshot 302 AW Backpack. I can't say enough good things about it. It holds all the gear I need when out shooting and is comfortable to wear. I always carry a tripod with me for the HDR shots so the tripod mount is great and easy to access.
The last time we were in New York City I'm sorry to say that the zipper broke. OK, what to do. I contacted Lowepro through their website offering to mail the pack back to them for repair. Within an hour or so I got an email asking for some additional information. After a very short while another email came telling me that the would replace my slingpack at no cost and that I would have it in a few days. It just arrived. How great is that.
Offering a great product and with service like that, Lowepro has a customer for life. I'll pass this information on to my photography club. We have over 200 members.

Photomatix Discount code

Best if viewed larger - click image
Today's image is a single Raw frame HDR taken in New York City and processed in Photomatix. The reflection is of the new "World Trade Center" construction site. I wouldn't dare try to set up a tripod in that part of the city.
I'm very happy to announce that I can now offer you a 15% discount when you buy Photomatix. Just enter the coupon code "alan8686" when you check out. You should check out their website for more information, here.

New York is always interesting

Click image to see larger
New York at night always offers great opportunities for HDR images. This is one I took from my hotel room over looking the construction site of the new Freedom Tower at Ground Zero.
There are a lot of mixed feeling but I'm glad that the politicking has stopped and building has started.

We were in New York City for a few days last week. One of the more fun things we did was go to a satellite location for the "Restore Sanity" rally in Washington. I agree with the concept. No matter what side your on, the conversation should remain civil with facts that are true.

Please get out today and VOTE.
