|Thank You so much Srikumar, for your honest critiques and encouraging words.
I would love to be able to capture the images that I have seen from others here on TN without always depending on flash. Every year I keep telling myself "this time I'm not going to use flash", but I am usually disappointed with many of the results. Most of my photos are in dense foliage or just the opposite, really harsh lighting. I have a bugger of a time getting correct exposure in these circumstances. The colors and detail are either washed out by the harsh lighting or not captured because of the darkened conditioned due to the heavy foliage.
Who knows....maybe this will be the year:)
Thanks Again Srikumar and "God Bless"
