Sorry I wasn't able to critique much yesterday :(
And thankyou to everyone who commented on my 300th post :)

I was lucky enough to be able to get down to Stocker's Lake today where I met up with Necip (necipp) and Nick (nick27). Necip was kind enough to let me use his Sigma 50-500mm lens on my 400D and even let me use his Canon 300mm f/2.8 L IS USM for a bit! So I have dedicated this to Necip for letting me use his lenses and showing us around the lake :)

This is one of the many Cormorants that fly between the two lakes. I hope you like it!

Hello Joe,
Great in-flight capture of a Cormorant. Perhaps a little soft but the lighting and composition as well as the POV are great.
Thanks for sharing this one,

Hi Joe,

Necip will be honored by this dedication. A wonderful Cormorant in flight. The lighting is wonderful. Good details of the face and the wing. I have a feeling you will be buying a new lens soon!

Hi Joe

Unusual lighting and colour - very effective though. Good action shot.



Hi Joe hope you had a good time, I like how you composed the shot and the light was interesting. Thanks for the kind dedication. best rgds Necip

I have been deluged by a once in a lifetime snow and ice and whatever storm. My power has been out and on all day..We have a foot and a half of snow in 15 hours. It is a mess...so this is a cc'ed message to folks whose pics I normally critique. I will try to return tomorrow for proper...if not then this will be a unique critique..like a wind signature eh?

hello joe,
necipp must be glad to see this dedication, liked the pov and the composition, the sky makes a fine bg here,

Hi Joey, it's as if you had been shooting pictures of birds all your life, superb shot! It is sharp and well exposed, I love the shadows underneath the bird, half silhouette and half light, this is really nice. Thanks!
