A very nice shot on this patch of Ireis palaestina showing it in its natural surroundings and environment. You have an amazing porfolio of plants and flowers.
Excellent shot on these two Macaws. The Action is perfectly frozen with nice sharp detail. Looks like you handled the bright light very well. Great note about the clay. I did not know that since the only ones I ever see are captive ones. Well done!
Your flash exposure looks spot on here. A beautiful little bird that I have not seen before. Love that colorful plumage! Nice sharp detail and well composed and placed in the frame. Nice work!
Did not know Loot's better half was such an excellent photographer. Really well composed and framed photograph. A nice clean perch and great seperation from the nice OOF background. Well exposed with nice sharp detail. I have only observed Hornbill species in the zoo. They are amazing looking birds. Very well done!
A very good shot on this Pygmy Cormorant. Well composed and placed in the frame. Nice sharp detail and perfect background. Well done.
Awesome photo my friend. He is tight in the frame, but I am a fan of tight cropping. Spot on with the exposure. The light looks great here as there appears to be no shadows yet you have very nice contrast. Nice sharp detail has every hair looking great on that massive mane. It does look like he could use a good conditioner to fix those split ends though. The intense gaze is also what really helps make it good. As usual, your notes and provided facts are superb. Always learn something from every one of your posts.
I guess it is another place to put on my list to visit when I make it over.
Take care my friend,
A beauty of a winter landscape you have here. The overall composition is superb with where the trees are placed in the frame and the horizion line is located. Great leading line with the fence. Beautiful soft light and a spot on exposure. Nice work..
Long time no communicate! I really love HDR photography. It just really depends on how you process it to meet your taste. Beautifully photo realistic such as this, or garishly cartoonish as you see very often. I love the the vertical composition to make a dramatic foreground with the flowers. Great detail in the shadows! Colors are really beautiful in this. A great sense of depth. Very well done!
Talked to Scott Hale yesterday and he said you had asked about me. I really miss all of the great people I have met over the years on TN and TL. I have just been so busy as a police administrator and running my photography business that I can not keep up. I won't post if I do not take the time to give back and properly critique and help. I still reguarly keep in touch with Howard. (Marhowie)
My photgraphy business is slowly growing despite the fact that I do not devote enough time to it. Have recently sold large prints for commercial jobs to our local hospital here and at the Ronald McDonald House at St. Louis Cardinal Glennon Hospital. I have done quite a few art shows and sell prints there and off my web site. I could make good money if I would do portraits and weddings but then that would be work. I will try to drop by more often to check in. Heck I may post one!
Take care my friend,
A nice shot on this Blue Grouse. He is really alert on somthing in this shot. Nice DOF and detail in the surrounding foliage. Well done.
Some dramatic winter sky scenery. A real moody feel to this photograph. Very well composed with a great sense of depth.
