Very cool image! Lots of great drama going on.

To the photographer - ignore the negative comments. It's interesting how many people who level harsh criticism never post their own photos, or if they do, they are completely lackluster. It's almost like they want you to do worse so their stuff doesn't look quite so bad by comparison.

On Raccoon Hideout in the Animal Homes In Nature challenge (7 comments in total)
In reply to:

TimR32225: Nice shot, Congratulations! My cousin has a virtually identical photo taken of this same raccoon in this same hollow tree in Viera Wetlands, taken one day before yours. How interesting is that?! I see that you cloned in the hole in the back of the tree on the upper right side. Great photo!

That's so cool - I saw him as I was driving by just peeking out at me! (And I did take care of a small hole in the back :)

On Nikon D7200 First Impressions Review preview (1114 comments in total)
In reply to:

lorenzo de medici: It's an incremental upgrade from the D7100, which I owned and then sold. Aptly named, and the improved buffer and low light focusing will be appreciated, I'm sure. DX Nikons just don't have any place in my camera bag any longer. Wildlife shooters who need 750mm equivalent focal lengths will enjoy this camera quite a bit, no doubt. Sorry but I don't care what claims they make or what DPR says, since it has just become a marketing arm of Amazon. DX sensors can't get the job done when it comes to the edge of the performance envelope. Buy a D750. If you dig down to the bottom line of DX advocates, no matter what they claim, the bottom line is they can't afford FX bodies or FX lenses. Cameras with little sensors are just a cheaper alternative to the real thing. Period. In ten years we'll all be shooting mirrorless full frame cameras, and DX cameras will still be what they are now - consumer grade equipment.

I have two D810s and a D4. I'm looking forward to getting a D7200 as well for when I need more "reach" than my 600mm F4 can give me. Don't think of them as status symbols, think of them as tools to help get a job done.

On big sable point at twilight in the Lighthouse challenge (7 comments in total)

Thanks for the kind words - This shot actually happened after 2 trips over 2 years and 5 hikes before everything actually fell in place for a photo. 5 different times I'd set up in this spot only to have everything fizzle out at sunset. I was THRILLED when this finally happened!

Earthlight: Brilliant! Manual HDR?

Thanks - And yes, a couple shots manually blended in PS - mostly just for the sun and the area right around it.

On Starburst Sand Dune in the Desert challenge (9 comments in total)

Thanks for the nice comments :)

It's at Mesquite Dunes in Death Valley and it's a two shot manual blend - one for the sky / dunes / most of the photo and another to keep the sun and area immediately around it under control.

On Superior Fury in the Water Extremes challenge (20 comments in total)

Wow, didn't know this photo would stir up so many people! It's a two shot blend - one for the sky, one for everything else. Although it may not look it in the photo, a blended shot was the only way to capture the tonal range in the image - otherwise parts of the the sky would be blown out and the image would would hit the 'ol recycle bin on the PC.

I too prefer to capture an image in a single shot, but sometimes it's just not do-able.
