    My galleries were all changed up, dang frustrating.
    What the heck Gale, where are all your 70-200mm VR shots. LOL................I thought you sold the 80-400mm??
     
  3. That is a beautiful swan Gale and your PS action has enhanced his beauty. Kind of a dreamy quality to it.

    Keith,
    copy and paste url to address bar and go to image. Then it shows up here.

    Haven't even used the 70-200 VR much, just spying on the troublesome neighbors :>)))) Sure shuts them up when then think i'm callin the cops :>)))

    Cameras are good for all kinds of things. May have to clobber the crap out of one of them (they are insured)

    Nice lens.

    I took this image before I sold it.....

    Hope you get to see it. Like to know what you think.

    (or should i ask that)...lol

    Thank You Gordon,

    Ever see a Great White Egret pose like that. Good catch, by the skin of my teeth. Saw and snap.

    I love suprises :>)))))
     
  6. Gale, that is a really great shot. I really like the mood of the picture. When we were in Florida recently, I was able to see the GWE but never got one to pose for me like this. Thanks for sharing.

    Jim,

    Haven't seen one do that either..... They are so beautiful...

    Usually when the wings are up, they are outta here. Don't usually see thm this deep in the water either. I lucked out for a change :>)))

    Thank You very much.

    Thank You Sandi,

    Nothing like the real beautiful swans you have Sandi.

    But I guess I just have to keep my imposter ...lolol
     
  12. Nice shot and nice post processing it would really look great when you print it on canvas for on the wall.

    And maybe it would look great if you would blur the water right underneat the swan abit but that is my suggestion maybe if you blur it it would look not as good as it looks now. But i could imagine this picture from you at somebodies wall for sure.

    Great work my thumb is up to you!

    Greetings,
