  • Hi Hermi, if you had a web cam hooked up, you could see how green (with envy) I turned as I viewed your images.  :-)  I've lived in Colorado over 50 years and last year was the 1st year I got to ...
  • Hi Dock, an enjoyable set to view. My favorites are 1,4, and 8. We seldom see swans around here. I'm surprised by the color variations in the cygnets. Always a treat to view images of subjects not ...
  • I think your idea in your response to anvin about the photo icon would be an improvement.  It's all ready being done on other threads, why not yours ? A weekly thread hosted by me ?  Nah, I have ...
  • Digirame states in the instructions each week: " When you are posting your own images please submit them as a reply to this post. Otherwise your pictures may be overlooked. You might also consider ...
  • Hi guin, last year I bought an Alta Pro 263 AT on sale for $100, legs only, no head included. :-) It allows almost any angle adjustment I can think of.  From ground level to as high as it reaches. ...
  • I too, think the 3rd bird is a golden eagle.  The color of the feathers on the neck are a big clue. Here is a very helpful link to guide the bird id.  I've bookmarked it, and refer to it often. ...
  • Hi anv, nice.  Thanks for sharing, Mike
  • thanks Dan, another way to save time in front of the monitor, Mike
  • I don't wish to offend Sailor, but I felt there must be a faster way than I did with each file. This worked, but because I didn't know how to select multiple images out of sequential order so I did ...
  • Hi Sailor, Oh my goodness. What a wealth of info you've provided. I don't think I have seen any of these. I have watched some of Julieanne Kost's , and also 3 of Antony Morganti's videos. In the ...
  • I'm of the camp that says: if it ain't broke, don't "fix" it.  DNo need to re-invent the wheel.  :-D I checked out your gallery, I'm impressed with the eagle shot.  Is this a wild or a captive bird ...
  • I'm learning the wisdom in this.  Lightroom makes me feel like I'm in a roller coaster ride.  You're strapped in, and forced to adapt to it's file keeping methods, and terminology, like export ...
  • Hi Red, the pattern in the link you provided looks similar. I'm most familar with FastStone image viewer.  I used this to view the images inquestion, and they show no signs of corruption. I did as ...
  • Hi Sailor, you are one of the names here I recognize seeing for some time.  :-)  I'll try your suggestions and report back to see if there's any change. See my answer to Jester.  It did not occur ...
  • Hi Jest, I had not thought about file size with regards to ratio format.  I need to remember that for future use.  Thanks for your help, Mike
  • Created discussions Lightroom 4 raw problems
    Hi all, this forum is one I have only, (until now) lurked in the background on.  I spend most of my time here at dpreview on the Canon Rebel forum.  I'm just starting to edit in Lightroom. I had a ...
  • Thanks for this link.  I'll get it on a thumb drive and track down somewhere I can get a high quality print made of it.  Want to be ready before I get a lens.  Now to figure out where I can buy a ...
  • Hi Wry, that's a smart move on your part to have a target ready before you received your lens.  I see you got a good copy, it appears. :-D  I'd be tickled with results like this. I need to see ...
  • Hi C17, I too, have been researching this lens.  Good to read your experiences, and owner's opinion.  Based on what I've read, I would not buy a used one myself, unless I could check it out before ...
  • Hi again Wade, I'd looked at KEH and missed the used bigmas.  They (likely) would need a heavier duty head than I currently have, and a tripod collar, for my tripod. While shooting eagles, there ...
