Thanks for the link. Nice pictures of Yellowstone the "SUPERVOLCANO"...
Researchers report the super-volcano underneath the state of Wyoming has been rising at a record rate since 2004. Its floor has gone up three inches per year for the last three years indicating the fastest rate since records began in 1923.
Anyhow, I love the train stuff, Great Pictures!!

Keep up the Excellent Work!

Your work is absolutely breathtaking. Wonderful work on the Fairway Reunion Concert at the Barrow Center. I am a fan of your work!

Hey Rudi! Glad to see you are still clicking. I just took a look around your site and am amazed as always at the quality of your work. Thanks for your comments on my wedding shots. Coming from you it means a lot. Weddings are not something I seek out and I them to be a little scary and a LOT of work. However, they do bring in a little money to support my hobby.

Beautiful work, beautiful art! We have very similiar tastes...I enjoy the close up crops too! Wish I had the money for the cameras you must have. Yet you still have to know how to see things...admire your work. Take care.

Great shots! Wish mine had turned out as nice. We had bought a new camera just before the cruise, and I really didnt have an opportunity to learn how to use it properly. Most of my shots are dark and grainy. Very disappointed and saddened by that. I have not had a chance to see if I can fix them somehow.

In any event, it was a great cruise. Hope your travels back home were better after we left you Seattle.

Take care,

Thanks Mike, i think its a little of both :)
Mike Forhan 24-Jul-2006 14:29
I have looked at many albums and can see that you are either lucky at being in the right place at the right time, or have a great creative edge to your work. I think it is probably the later. This work among other artist is the type of style that I try to emulate. Thankyou for sharing it with all of us.
Guest 09-Jul-2006 20:31

Such God-given talent. May He bless you and yours as you give Him first place in your heart. Thank you for sharing.

What an amazing collection of stunning images! All your photos have great composition, colours and pattern. Very impressive. Keep up the good work.

Guest 12-Jan-2006 12:58
Hi Rudi,

I was really amazed by the eagle pictures that you posted over on DP so I decided to take a look at your Pbase galleries.

Let me tell ya' - I was not disappointed. You have some amazing galleries. I have the Bigma and a 10d. I just wish that I could make it as an effective combination as you have. I wish I knew how you got the effect that you achieved with the paths and the autumn foliage. That is a really nice touch. You have so many great pictures that it would be difficult to pick out favorites. One thing though - you will have to get more #24 in your NASCAR

If you want, stop by and take a look at my Pbase galleries at

rudiman10-Jan-2006 19:18
Thanks Yuli, send me an e-mail and i'll see if i can help you out some.
Yuli 10-Jan-2006 08:10
Hi Rudiman..
You've got an excellent galleries here...I love it !
I'm newbie in this digital photographic thingy..
Would like to learn the basic technic from you if you dont mind..
...keep up with that good shots ^_^ !!!
rudiman22-Nov-2005 02:49
Thanks Roger. It can be work sometimes :-)
Roger 20-Nov-2005 12:00
excellent photography...I won't call it great "work" though, since I don't consider the Art of Photography as being "work" sem to be a naturally gifted artisan in this field...thoroughly impressed...
rudiman30-Oct-2005 06:12
Did you get banned Wayne? I have no idea why if you did. I dont go there to much lately, send me an e-mail sometime, ok. Thanks for the comments bro.
Wayne Birch 30-Oct-2005 06:07
Hi Rudi, you old phart!
You might know what happened with me and DP, but I'm still dumb-founded as to why???
I don't know why?
I've got some photos still on Flickr ( ) and still love
my Bigma and 300D. The more I use them the better I capture stuff. You've got some
excellent photos on PBASE and wish that i could be part of the old gang on DP. All the best
and keep shooting!! :-)
moon(S'pore) 30-Oct-2005 05:54

It's always fun to find a fellow PA shooter! Nice work!
rudiman29-Sep-2005 14:43
Send me an e-mail florian, i'll be glad to help you out.
florian 28-Sep-2005 10:58
hi rudiman, i am aforeigner, and impressend by the quality and the variety of your pics, I'd like to ask some more basic questions. I would like to start shooting macro, but my budget is limited. i am interested in the lens you use, but i'd like to know first : what can I shoot with that, and without flash ? I never tried n aperture 2.8, nad for example is a flash necessary for pics of insects or flowers ? If yes, is the flash of my camera enough ? If no, what should I buy ?
Thank to let me know...and again congratulations
rudiman21-Jul-2005 23:27
Hi Jim. I shoot all handheld macro's. I use the Sigma super 500DG flash with a homemade softbox, or a stofen omnibounce depending what i feel like that day. I try to keep my settings between this: f/11 - f/20, 1/125th - 1/200th sec. and iso 100-200.
Jim Lanyon21-Jul-2005 23:15
Hi there,

I was prompted to visit (again) after seeing some of your excellent
macro shots on dpreview. I know you are using a 105mm macro lens, but can I ask about your technique? Tripod, onboard flash etc...

rudiman03-Jul-2005 03:40
Thanks Keith, i'm using the Sigma 105mm. macro for all the closeups.
keith 03-Jul-2005 02:35

inspiring photos,we'relooking into a rebelxt and checking out dpreview, question, what macro lense did you use for the photos of bugs and of water droplets on leaf?
rudiman21-Jun-2005 03:24
I sent you an e-mail Mark, thanks for the nice comment as well. Have a great time.
rudiman25-Feb-2005 02:47
Thanks Michael, the Murdock one is called Edwardian Script ITC and the woodpecker i have no idea. I dont think it was anything special. Thanks for looking and the nice comment.
Michael 24-Feb-2005 23:30
Hi there,

I think your pictures look great. I wondered if you can tell me the names of the fonts you have used for the titles of:

Pileated Woodpecker -
Murdock Hall -

Rob Schroeter 27-Jan-2005 14:30

Thanks. And I'll come for a visit now and then. Keep up the great work.
