Hey there Neil! Hey thx for the OPEN support - I'll look for you too & vote as well - it's a roll of the dice but you never know - stranger things have happened to me. It's fun anyway. I'm sort of laying low right now until a new toy arrives. But in the meantime, I'll be checking in with ya - hey - take care Neil and thanks again!

Well, did you get shoveled out yet? Not much here - mostly all melted. Went over to Sedona for some nice snow shots - snow had everything socked in - no shots. That was a first for me. Oh well.

Thank you very much for your recent comment on "So Close".

Neil, I shoot RAW. Far more latitude in processing. I continue my in-camera sharpening efforts because I want to see how much of a difference it makes. The work coming out of Nikon cameras because of the anti-aliasing filter is so different that the work coming out of Canon cameras. Just something I have to experiment with ;^) I have a few old, old images shot with other cameras that had no RAW capabilities and I've kept them because of composition or subject. Have a good day. Carol

I have 10.7.3 and I don't have Lightroom. I use the full blown CS5, Extended. Interesting, I'm fine at low ISO numbers. Have you experimented with in-camera sharpening. That's what I'm playing with now. Another Time--Another Place was hand-held at f/4, 1250s, ISO 100. It's sharp as a tack and yes, the IC sharpening was set at 9. Give it a whirl. I think the softness might be a function of the lens and the f/stop, more than the camera but who knows. I used to have a D200 that would AF

Neil, the amount of water in the Virgin river depends on the time of year and the snow runoff. If you follow the river further into Utah there is some rafting on this river. Cedar Pockets has a campground and I hope I can stay this coming fall. Carol
  said:March 19th, 2012 (3:18pm) PDT
Thanks for the info, Neil. Never had the 80200 but I hear it's good lens. I've had the D700 for about 3 years. I swear I get more noise between 4&800 than I do at far higher ISOs, but what do I know. Downloaded NIK Dfine 2 but couldn't get it installed on a 64 bit MAC; I suspect that I need to install it and then re-install the latest OS. Tech support couldn't help. I'll remember your trick of over-exposing higher ISOs and give it a world. Carol

Neil, thank you for adding me to your SnapList. I love your gallery.
 Simon Barker said:March 11th, 2012 (9:37pm) PDT
Hi Neil, this is my first time looking through your portfolio. It is very impressive. Nice to see someone here that's from closer to home. I spend most of my time either around the Waiparous/Ghost area in the foothills or in the mountains. Maybe we'll cross paths on the trails.. I look forward to taking a closer look at your work. Simon
 Johann Scheiber said:March 11th, 2012 (2:03pm) PDT

Hi Neil, Thank you very much for your recent comments my friend.

Well hello there Neil! and so it goes - more and more of us transitioning over here. Great set going now - keep it up!
  said:February 28th, 2012 (11:30am) PST
"A superb burst of color Carol! Is this your fine stained glass work?"" I'm not sure I understand the question, Neil. It's photo art created by shapes selected from several images. All of the images that I used were of flowers. Hope that is what you were asking. Carol

Your work is wonderful, look forward to seeing you around !
 Paul Garrett said:February 24th, 2012 (9:42pm) PST
Hey Neil, thanks for welcoming me here!
 Neil Jolly said:February 24th, 2012 (9:35pm) PST
Way to go Gene!Yes I think 72dpi ought to at least buy coffee for the 500px staff for that boondoggle!

Hi Neil!
 Christie King said:February 24th, 2012 (7:53pm) PST
Great to see you've landed here as well. Hope we don't crash the servers here with the large influx of ex500s!
 Marc Bulte said:February 24th, 2012 (1:15am) PST
Hey Neil, good to find you here too! Looks like 500px lost quite a few talented photographers. Cheers, Marc

Hello Neil :) good to see you here!
 Johann Scheiber said:February 24th, 2012 (12:15am) PST
..hey Neil. Its a great pleasure to see you here... Some days ago I ”follow” Pat Sampson just looking where he ”lives now” and directly I jump in... beside this, many thanks for your appreciated comments already here... nice to see you

Neil, thanks for your comment on the Tea Rose. I'm taking it slow and easy here. I know what you mean by having someone else write a bio. The Beautiful People Project on Facebook did that for me too ;^)

 Neil Jolly said:February 23rd, 2012 (9:18pm) PST
Thanks Mike! Interesting all the comments on my bio. I had the same one posted at 500px, but no one ever noticed it. Must be placed a little more prominently here. Yes I think 500px has made a serious mistake as well. I was quite pleased with the operation of the site prior to the upgrade. Hopefully we don't overwhelm this site!
 Mike Thompson said:February 23rd, 2012 (9:04pm) PST
Welcome Neil. Great to see you here. The pace here is not nearly as hectic. Frankly it has taken me a few days to get used to it; but now I am loving it. I'm afraid that 500px has made a real blunder with their 'upgrade'. Looking forward to seeing lots of your photos here. NIce bio by the way.

 Neil Jolly said:February 23rd, 2012 (7:55pm) PST
They've lost many I think Carl! Good to have you aboard!
 Carl Parow said:February 23rd, 2012 (7:52pm) PST
Jump, jump... 500px has lost me.
 Scott Smorra said:February 23rd, 2012 (6:46pm) PST
Neil, It's great to see you here as well. 72dpi definitely looks like a good site. I'm fed up with "that other site" we came from.
 Neil Jolly said:February 23rd, 2012 (4:49pm) PST
Thanks Carol! As for the bio - it helps a lot if you have a good friend who's a professional writer that does your bio for you. he asked me some questions, then spit this out. Pretty handy really!
  said:February 23rd, 2012 (4:45pm) PST
Welcome, Neil. Nice to see you here. Quite a bio you have. I'm impressed.

Old friend and ski partner Chic Scott writes of Neil Jolly:

Neil Jolly has been taking photographs most of his life but it is only during the last ten years that he has taken his art more seriously. Growing up in Medicine Hat then Vermilion he was introduced to photography by his father at about age eight. He captured his first images with a Yashica 35 mm SLR and learned to develop his black and white photographs in his father’s darkroom.

For a number of years he drifted away from photography. Not having a darkroom of his own, he was unable to control a very critical phase of the photographic process. But when he discovered digital, the possibilities opened up again and thanks to his extensive computer skills he had complete control over his own image processing.

Although he initially photographed primarily mountain settings, his work today also encompasses prairie landscapes, which have their own unique magic and charm. Neil favours simple compositions, shot in early morning, late afternoon or evening light. He prefers large-scale natural compositions but occasionally old houses and barns that are being reclaimed by nature, catch his interest as well.

Neil’s photographic influences include Ansel Adams, Galen Rowell, Art Wolfe and the many incredible photographers on Neil remembers, “For much of my life I raced through incredible landscapes on my way to personal goals, rarely stopping to enjoy the view.” Now he is dedicated to the photographic art because “it forces me to stop and take in the magnificent scenery that surrounds me.”

Bio Data

Neil's maternal grandparents were pioneers who immigrated to the Grand Prairie region via oxen cart along the Edson Trail. Neil and his wife Kim have one daughter Michelle. For many years Neil was a dedicated alpinist, skiing, climbing and hiking in all seasons and all weather throughout the Rocky Mountains. He is a licensed automotive technician and more recently ran his own information technology company for seven years. In his spare time Neil enjoys music, literature and travel.
