<<<GA-FL Spring Break 2005>>>

During April 4-6, I traveled around South Georgia and North Florida taking pictures where I pleased.
This is only the second time I have taken pictures with a digital camera, so tell me what you think.

If there are any particular photos you like, please tell me.
Alternatively, if you think any are worthy of the Urban Photo Contest, please tell me.

I will display the thumbnails as follows . . .
Day 1: Okefenokee Swamp Park
Day 1: Brunswick & St. Simon's
Day 2: Jacksonville Zoo
Day 2: Downtown Jacksonville
Day 2: Florida Coast
Day 3: Savannah
Day 3: South Georgia & Augusta


The first photos will be up as soon as I have uploaded them. :)
(It takes a while, so be patient.)

^Neither did I until I went there. It's a nice place, but isn't that big. You should go if you ever have the chance.

As of now, I'm about half way done uploading the Jax Zoo photos (there's 117). Getting there . . . :)

^Thanks, but I always thought that one was a little blurry. :dizzy:

UPDATE: I will have the Downtown Jacksonville photos up within the next hour or two, but I will stop there for the night. :)
All I can say for now is that these photos will give me the respect I deserve for my photography.

Here's the fuller version of the panorama for those too lazy to look.
Keep in mind that this is my first panorama, so any suggestions are welcomed.

BTW, I did it without a tripod or panorama software. Just pointed and stitched.

I'll have the Savannah pictures up eventually. I only just now realized that there are 174 photos!!! :wallbash:

This may take a while. :sleepy:

Could you people do me a favor and post a few times so I can put these other photos on the 2nd page?
Thanks.

@MattSal: Excellent job!! The photos look great and the pan looks good too, but I've never done a pan myself. I noticed that the same boat and fisherman appears in the pan three times. I don't know what to do about that but I'm sure there are plenty of pan experts on SSC that could tell you what to do.

Two Panoramas as Well . . .

This pano was taken from a dock on River Street . . .


This pano was taken from the dock at the Westin . . . (It is undoubtedly the best photograph I have ever taken.)

The boat guy appears three times because there was a pause between photos. I didn't even noticed it until now. :colgate:

BTW, I will have the rest of the photos up within the next hour or so.
