A birch tree in Nathan's garden. Also with boosted contrast, thanks to gimp.

This was also taken in Nathan's Garden. This is Greg walking down the path (if you couldn't tell). The gimping of this photo included boosting the contrast ever-so-slightly and adding a bit of a feather border to the edges.

I really do love gimp. I didn't change this photo too too much. Just made it more pink, because it makes the blurred background look more neat and abstract-art-like. I took this photo this past weekend at Nathan's Garden in Hanover.

This old Getty sign is on the road near Greg's house. I had always been meaning to take a photo of it. One day, after a nice snow, I took this photo, from a moving vehicle (don't worry, I was the passenger). This photo is also gimped. I think boosting the contrast made it look more like it does in real life. Add a nice border, and I'm sold!

Another photo from the physics hike. And another photo edited with gimp.

This was a photo I took on the physics department hike up to Holt's Ledge. This leaf was actually on one of the ski slopes which we took down the mountain. This was quite a bit of snow to have in October, but it certainly made for some beautiful photos. I also edited this photo with gimp. surprise surprise.

two twenty five

You might think this is Arrett Memorial Hall, but it is really Barrett Memorial Hall. A fine hall, if you ask me.

Exposure time: 1/4000 s
Aperture: f/1.8
ISO: 640

I also edited this photo in Gimp a bit, using "colorize" to give it the sepia tone, and also desaturate it. And then I boosted the contrast a bit.
