This is the "activity bell" at Mallo Camp where I went to Black Hills Baptist Camp for many years. I stopped there to visit a friend on the way through during my recent midwest road trip. Many of the flower macros have been from here.

I tried to get out shooting tonight, but didn't make it home from school in time.

Site Update: In addition to the extra line of exif data (exposure mode), I have also implimented a category feature. I've tagged all the photos since early February and the can now be sorted by going to the archive page and choosing a category. You will also note the categories listed below the post. It may sound easy (especially to someone who uses pixelpost :P), but it took some work getting it perfected. I have a category feature on my blog, but this one is significantly better and more powerful. Enjoy!

I really like the color of the bell against the dark blue sky. Nice shot.

The angle is well chosen. And the white clock against the beautiful blue of the sky is so great.

Wow, the contrast is awesome !

The sky is so blue that it could suggest the use of a polarization filter...

The composition is also great, very balanced.

Love this shot, man !

I'm not 100% sure, but I do believe I used a polarizer for this shot.

Well spotted Ryan, nice detail and toning on the bell. I would have thought the bell would have come out slightly over-exposed in the blue sky but you did a great job in controlling the exposure.
