She's got "The right stuff" and very nice work indeed.
Very nice shot. Congrats.
Wonderful location, however I found the editing and cuts from scene to scene abrupt and repetetive. The black outs between cuts does not work for me. I thought the jitters was my computer but after reading other comments it seems it's part of the video.
A pair of Robins decided to start building their nest on a tiny ledge above a column under the portico and no more than 3' from our front door. I asked the kids to gently open and close the door upon entering and leaving, but they would forget from time to time and I would shutter when that door slammed shut. That didn't deter the pair as they kept building. Then after one particular rainy and windy day I came home to find the nest on the ground, still intact, but I thought that may be the end. I then nailed a small piece of wire mesh to the column and placed the nest back in it's original location and within minutes the birds were back. Within weeks they raised 3 healthy chicks and we all got witness the beauty of nature. And I got some pics too.
Never owned a Sony before I bought the RX100. I'm having such a good time with this little gem of a camera that I may consider the RX 10 for my next purchase. The zoom range is perfect for 90% of what I enjoy shooting.And f 2.8 across the range is a plus, while the size and weight is not a dealbreaker. There are many times when carrying my Canon DSLR and a couple of lenses to cover 24-200 is more of a pain than taking just one camera along.
Very nice. Was my favorite in the challenge.
AlanG: Doesn't this guy know that dozens of GoPro gimbal systems already exist? I've been using one on a quadcopter for almost a year.
Can you give.a link to a good GoPro stabilizing system for an RC quad copter. Would be interested in size, weight, and specs. Thanks
Good shot. Was my favorite.
Down and dirty. Contrast on 1st place. Well deserved.
Very cool, no pun intended, love the misty scene with birds in a row.
Great image. Love everything about it.
Thank you Ruth.
Thanks Buzz,Kbdkbd and others are welcome to voice their opinion and I welcome all comments positive or negative. I would add that as many things have changed in the digital age of photography, many things have not. If using film one would choose which type of film, Kodak, Fuji, slide, or print, color or black and white. One would choose a polarizing filter for added saturation and depth, or a yellow to red filter for greater contrast when shooting BW. One would choose the type of paper for printing, then dodge and burn to attain the desired results. This is the creative process that photography should be about. I have no objection to any process, HDR, Photoshop, LR or the many third party filters available to the photographers. What can be perceived by some to be HDR, or "overcooked" by others is a personal opinion and should be considered in critiquing any photo.Thanks to all who did like the photo, and thanks to those who did not as I respect all your comments.Anthony
This is a single shot, not HDR, Adj were made in LR as noted. Thank you.
Would have completely fooled me had I not seen how the photographer set up the shot. Very nice indeed. Now if only I stil had those model cars and planes I built as a kid so long ago.
