    Every place you look more eye candy than you can capture !!!!!

    Think I would love to go everyday for at least a week. Don't think I could physical handle it, but would be fun to try.

    Then find someone to PP for me LOL

    Thank you for the Great comliment Frank..

    If I could do you PP better than you, I would.. You do a great job. Don't think I could do as well for you :>)))
     
  4. Very nice, Gale. I'd like to come along with you and spend that week there. Imagine the shots we would end up with having all that time to perfect the shot! ;)

    My only critique is I'm not crazy about the font color on your copyright. A little too neon-y and hard to read.

    Tried to get to Gatorland today but that darn Arlene messed things up. Maybe tomorrow.

    lolol Yeah the neon really sucks Kevin...hahahaha

    Just playing. Not one I will use for sure.

    Thanks for that critique though. Apperciated.

    Yes we are starting the Hurricane stuff just toooooo early
    This is not good.

    Thanks for the compliment on the image.

    I really want critiques.. Many are going to print.

    I do not post the best of them though. Finished products have been and will be done a bit better.

    (let the thieves get the not done stuff)

    When you do get to Gatorland would sure like the low down on it.

    Thanks
     
  6. Have you tried a tighter crop? The bird is white so attention is drawn to it but the tree stuff on the left and the foliage on the bottom left is so busy that it becomes kind of distracting.

    I'm still trying to look at my shots like that and it's certainly not easy to see it with others' eyes. But when I study the image, that's what I see. Does that help? I hate doing critiques cuz it sounds like there's nothing good to say about it. :(

    Oh I am sorry Kevin...

    Was pm'ing back and forth with Keith.. I am so bad...

    lolol

    C R A F T That happens in old age, donchano
     
  10. That's ok, Gale. I just figured I must not have made a good enough impression for you to remember who I was. ;)

    Revised version, IMHO, is 100% better! Not nearly as distracting.

    I'll be sending you about 100 pics I took today of the girls for you to PP for me, ok? lol

    Like the "Craft" joke.

    Thank You Harris,

    You did a great job also.

    We all had a great time and so many birdies. Wow I want to go get more.

    Hi Gale -

    That is one beautiful bird and a great capture. Version 2 is a definite improvement, but not IMO the egret doesn't have quite enough room in front of him. Could you do a bit of a blur on that front foliage? That would emphasize the bird even more.

    Thank heavens you got rid of that bileous green! The white is better, but IMO the copyright still is too prominent. Suggestion - try a thinner, more delicate script and shrink the whole thing a bit.

    The bottom line, though, is still "wow what a bird!"

    Thank You Gordon,

    I will take care of those suggestions when it is ready to go to print for sure.

    thanks for the great compliment and the critique.

    Appreciated or I will never learn guessing.

    The Green yeah kinda just playing. That was not serious for sure.
