Back in December my old camera started giving me the shutter release error. The manual said to consult Nikon.I did a web search and found others who had solved the problem with a little lubrication of the red gear in the bottom of the camera. That worked for a few days the problem returned. It seems fixing Nikon cameras is not a quick process, so I found new camera body, the D3100. It has a larger sensor and more features. The reflection is in our mirror that is made of vertical sections. Second image was flipped in PhotosShop. I plan to get the D40X repaired and use it as a backup.

For my Weekend reflection post, I used a photo of a tree reflected on the red hood of our van. Some thought is was an edited image, but the only change was to resize it for blogger. So I decided to play around with the image with PhotoShop. First I rotated 90 degrees and applied auto color correction.
Next I adjusted hue and saturation to get the yellowish tree. And below I removed color, increased contrast a lot, and reduced brightness a little. I like the effect of the black and white, with sky highlights in this last one.
