[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
You may remember Long John Silver and Hook walks the plank, well, here is a mugshot of the same Squacco Heron. I battled my backside off to get into the site, took me from this whole day day to get to the site, and umpteen mails to Adam. So, here goes the first image in the nature category from me. I changed my username from cdewet to Callie, as this is how most TE members knows me. Sorry, no info on this, as my mind is eslewhere with the battle fought to reach the site. Tomorrow, DV, brand new birdie! I shot 190 pix again today.

Great mugshot, beautifully lit against a nice clean background. Looks a teeny weeny soft, though, perhaps a little sharpen.

Welcome Callie. Very nice shot with clean background, I really like the way he is looking at you. - 190 shots in one day - well, the D70 is really working overtime for you ;-).

Lovely detail and lighting here Callie and well cropped, nice photo

Great to see you here Callie,glad adam was able to get you up and running .
he`s a little soft but very nicley seen the plain backgroud makes him stand out well.
looks like you will need a new large hard-drive soon ;0)))#

Goedenavond Callie! Hoe gaat het met U/jij?

May I say that, even if the capture and framing are wonderful, the quality of this image is not as perfect as we are used to find in your previous portfolio... :o)
Too much blown up? Maybe it needs some slight NeatImage?

Ach! I'm just spoiled because we know you from the hundreds of quality shots on TE! ;o)

Lovely composition, and I understand about the quality. That said, I've posted a Workshop mainly for test purposes...

As always Callie, your nature shots are suberb. The clarity of the eye is amazing, even a tiny catch light can be seen.

Great capture Callie! I love the sharpness of the eye and my goodness, even a catchlight!

Vous avez le privilège d'avoir une faune très riche et très variée dans votre pays, je ne m'attends pas à rencontrer un léopard ou une autruche sur mes chemins de promenade.
Mais vous avez aussi le don de créer de belles images photographiques.

You have the privilege to have a very rich fauna very varied in your country, I do not expect to meet a leopard or an ostrich on my ways of walk. But you have also the gift to create beautiful photographic pictures.
