Beautiful work Gary. The fog is neat, but you sure had some sweet light as it burned off. Awesome as always!
Thanks Mason

By getting quartering light on White Bird seem to increase the Shadow detail and illuminates the Backlit Wings!!

Something tells me that you go out every day and photograph. Now I know that you don't work for a living and that Andy has to go out hunting for food to feed you.

Nice set my friend. Always good to go out, I don't have that luxury.

Hey Grasshopper Thanks

I am retired and Shoot most days but just for a couple of hours in the Morning or afternoon. I have a Ranch with Quarter Horses and Border Collies!!

I haven't Seen Andy in a couple of Weeks, I guess he is busy!!!:Love:

love that soft look in the first image, and the others when the fog cleared are nice too.

This one seems a bit close to over sharped to my eye, but it could be the laptop I am using instead of the main cpu, since I have never noticed you having a tendency to oversharpen before?

I will check on the big monitors later tonight.


that quartering stump shot has some great metering and light, well done.

Wonderful set. I really like the green heron.

Thanks Jessie

The shutter speed was right on the edge for action shots, but it came out OK.

I looked at it again and feel it is close.

Good stuff Gary. I'm going to have to visit the area when I finally acquire a 500. You always have quite the selection of birds!
Thanks Rich

A 400 is plenty!!!

Must have been the work dell laptop (not calibrated or even adjusted at all) I was looking on, looks fine on my macbook and home big monitors too.

Hey Thanks Wade

I use only Curves and modest USM after resizing, I'm not very good at PP.
