Thanks for the compliment! It's not often that I do a still life and am always glad when it turns out so nicely.
Good guesses but you guys are only partly right. This is actually a one-off photo of a fast food soft drink cup and the "bubbles" are the condensation on the underside of the clear plastic lid. I was out one cold and rainy morning with my Tamron SP90 f/2.8....I hadn't had the chance to "stretch it's legs "as it were so I took it out for a spin and well....there you go. This is the second of two shots from that series...guess it turned out better than I expected!
Didn't think this one was gonna do that well....a last minute decision entry and not one of my better ones. Still, I do like it as it's one of my first serious attempts at catching birds on the wing.
ioshadha: Amazing shot... Looking at your specs - did you use a flash for this?
Nope...just a teensy bit of tweaking for exposure correction and color from Photoshop, otherwise it's shot with the natural light.
Wow...my first #1! Thanks, guys, much appreciated!
Looks like either a baby pigeon or a dove, aka a squab. Probably fell out of his nest, poor lil guy...
Since this word is just another way of saying "birds of a feather flock together", can the subject be both animal or human?
I really liked this challenge...it was fun to twiddle with a few of my pictures to see how they'd turn out, especially that hibiscus flower from my neighbor's hedge. Indeed, let's do another one!
Thanks! I haven't done too many still-life shots up to this point, but I'm starting to thanks in part to some of the lenses I've bought over the last 6 months. I took this one with my Minolta f/1.7 50mm prime, my kitchen table and wouldja believe my cat's favorite sleeping basket. Light was courtesy of a bit of late Summer afternoon sun coming thru the window with ambience set by a few deft pulls on the blinds....needless to say I got a pretty nice result!
Ouch.....well, I guess nobody liked this one very much.....
