Aw shucks, can't buy a new camera and then let it just sit there while I write papers.... took this on the rebel xti an hour or so ago
I took some really cool reflection photos too, not sure if they count as highlights persay:
Back to those darned papers now...
Does this work?

First one is a great picture and it meets the requirements alright!
Reflections - well, what can I say - OT?
Specular Christmas tree lights...and it's fresh from today...
Took this tonight... I like the way the flash bounced off of it.
Yea, me too!
However, I'd be more inclined to classify those as "catch lights", just like the sparkles of flash/light in people's eyes. Specular Highlights, imho, require larger blown areas (as in your Toyota badge case) or a direct light souces (Swartzy's bridges).
Come on, Cat, I know, you can do it:-)
I've been busy....all the motion shots are of geese and such at high shutter speeds so there wasn't much movement feel of the pics....been concentrating on other stuff lately.....like this:
and I must include my latest wall hanger (running out of wall space..):
Quick question: did you use star-filter for your bridge shots? If not, how else did you get those stars so nice?
Playing around with a star filter that I was given...it doesn't fit any of my current lenses, so I hand held it in front of the lens...maybe a bit overexposed, but kinda fun...
Nope, no star filter. I use my standard UV (Promaster) filter, which is on all the time, especially crawling around at night! It's simply exposure times with the most excellent camera..... Thanks!
This is one that I took at my cousin's place a couple days ago. (I know they're supposed to be new...)
Sorry for the poor quality. I like the overall picture, but I was messin around and I didn't have my tripod.
Dang, I need that new Camera....
I created these by doing the following:
Put CD's under my lamp in the living room, and then held an empty smirnoff bottle up next to my lens. I think it came out really neat Taken tonight.
No flash so it's all the trick of the lighting of the lamp...
No specular highlights again :cry
I mean, there are some tiny specs of them, but the idea of the class is to get them really pronounced.
The primary idea behind specular highlight is that you can tweak the rest of the image into the dark oblivion of #000000, yet they still will be shining at full #FFFFFF.
Argh, so the light playing tricks doesn't work, it's just gotta be pure highlights o' light then?
