    Ming,

    Welcome to the Cafe!! As I've said several times, I'm not the artistic type, so I'm not a very well qualified judge, but I do like these. Very nice compositions. BTW, your web site has some outstanding images. I enjoyed browsing through it. I'm curious; what is a photohorologer??

    Where were these taken?

    Welcome to the Cafe Ming,
    Very interesting. I do like the abstracts of these birds.
    Never thought of B/W with them though.
    I do like artistic views and paintings. Not a big fan of B/W. But I am trying to.
    I also went through your gallery on birds. Very nice.
    Thanks for sharing.
     
  3. Thanks! I'm new at this whole wildlife photography game (about two months, using a 55-200/5.6 DX mostly, picked up an 80-200/2.8 and 2x kenko TC last week - which is what these were shot with).

    Frank - photohorologer: a person who takes pictures of watches (I coined it myself) - watch/macrophotography is my speciality, together with street photography. The birds were shot at Taman Burung in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. I feel the need for a 500/4, right after a D200...

    I love the second one and the last one. All are good.
     
  5. Those birds can really contort and you have captured them well.
     
  6. Ming, these are very beautiful photos. Thanks for sharing.
     
  7. They are very interesting, I like them, It seems like you almost shot some of them in a studio, with the black shiny bottom of the pictures, but i read they where shot outside. Ver interesting effects can you tell us a bit how you shot them and got these effects?

    Welcome to the Cafe BTW.
     
  8. Yea, you and the rest of us! :biggrin:

    I think I like the pics. They are different but very well composed.
     
  9. I am not an artsy person. But I do know when I like something and I like these.
     
  10. Thanks for the encouragement! :biggrin:

    And if another person tells me to get the 500/4 I'm just going to have to hit them with it...:p

  11. Hi Ming,
    2 & 4 are winners (especially 2).
    #1's OOF head bothers me and the other two are a bit too contrasty for my taste.
    With that said, most artsy stuff is easily lost on me :)

    Thanks for sharing.
