As a kind of salute to the Santa Fe trip from this last weekend, I thought it might be fun to do just a photo-sharing day here on the blog so you can see some of the fun stuff from down in Santa Fe.  We did a lot of walking around both days, so it was definitely a photo-walk type of atmosphere.  The opportunity to take a solo vist over to the historic rail yard in Santa Fe also presented itself so I took advantage of that too.  Here’s a sampling from the trip:

As you can see, we had a good time.  I wasn’t exactly “focused” on photography as these shots are works in progress, but regardless, I did get the chance to practice a little.  As the old saying goes though, we are always our own worst critic, so I’ll throw the critique doors open to the reading audience too.  Do you like the processing?  Composition?  Technique?  Etc.?  Since some will likely ask, all of these HDR composites were done by pulling into Lightroom, then using the new Photomatix software from HDR Soft.  (Be on the lookout for a review coming up on this latest incarnation too as it’s got some nice advancements and feature additions.)

In other news, keep in mind the latest Giveaway is underway over at the Flickr Group.  You can win the Thinktank Photo Multimedia bag system and a Topaz Labs Photoshop Plugin bundle with a combined retail value of $500 just by submitting your favorite “Think in Color” photo to the Flickr thread!  Until tomorrow, hope all your shots are fun ones!  Happy Shooting!

  1. I stopped off in Sante Fe on our Route 66 trip last year and really enjoyed the place. I’m sad I missed the rail yard though. I did enjoy the local brews at the Atomic Cafe and I think the beer and the altitude went straight to my head!

  3. Hey Matt,

    We were only in town for 2 days, so I didn’t have a lot of time. We did get to eat at Pasquals though, and will be sure to get in touch with you before next time we are passing through! 🙂

  4. Welcome back! Hope you’re healing up well.

    I enjoyed Santa Fe on my last visit. Stayed for a week while traveling the country. Great town, and I almost stayed there permanently.

  5. I’m from Santa Fe!! We have a lot more interesting places other than the plaza. Did you check out camel rock, or the view from 25 facing Santa Fe? I hope you at least had breakfast at our world famous Pantry Diner.

  6. Perfect timming; I’m going to Santa Fe next week and it was great to get some ideas. I’d love to see more of your pictures.

    I knew the railyard area had been renovated but hadn’t thought of it as a place to shoot. Thanks for the suggestion.
