    I went through a bunch of my unprocessed images and pulled out some more dragons since I can't get out to get any new ones for the next week or so.

    Nice stuff! I'm going to be on the river tomorrow and plan to try my hand at some of these aerial dinosaurs.

    If I can get anywhere close to the qulaity of your captures I'll be a happy paddler :)

    Tom,
    Not quite the "Dust Bin", but these are images that at first glance, didn't really capture my attention for one reason or another. I keep most of my stuff and go back later and sort through it. More often than not, I pull up images that I think "Now why didn't I like this?"


    Thanks Holmes. Good luck on your hunt tomorrow. I look forward to seeing some images from the adventure.

    Excellent shots Paul. #1 especially.
     
  6. Very good! I, too, like #1 best, although all are excellent.
