Beautiful, congratulations. Makes me wish I was there to see that in person.
Another great shot from you of trains from yesteryear. Nice exposure of the trains, the smoke and the background/foreground all together.
cmantx: Nice shot Mick I had it finishing 7th in my voting. Nicely shot and composed.
Thank You, Mick. We are, and I hope you and your family are enjoying your Thanksgiving also.
Congratulations on 1st place in a challenge with many beautiful photos. Autumn is my favorite. I really enjoyed seeing your shot.
Nice shot Mick I had it finishing 7th in my voting. Nicely shot and composed.
I really liked the look and feel of this shot. It gives a feel of extreme cold but beauty also. I voted it as one of my top shots.
The Mick: I agree with Ed. Can't argue with those results. Congratulations on a well-deserved top spot in the challenge, Carmen.Mick
Thanks Mick. The lens is versatile. I'm not sure if I used an extension tube when taking the shot, but I like the color and contrast I'm getting with the lens.
Ed at Ridersite: Nice one with the new Tammy! At least as good as your hummingbirds ;-)
Thanks Ed. I struggle to do as well with my non-hummingbird shots.
Beautiful shot. The sky, reflection in the water and the stump, really bring the image together.
Great shot. The eye is just glowing, and the bird is framed nicely.
Great shot. The effort it takes to get up and be in the right place with camera ready, to get this opportunity, should be noted. I can almost feel what it's was like to be there when viewing your image.
Fantastic capture of the wings.
Nice going finishing with 2 high placed shots. This one was my favorite of your 2. Very sharp and nice colors.
Great capture. I like the composition and the light illuminating the females eyes.
Impressive focus and detail for a DIF. What lens did you use?
Great shot, Chuck_FL.
RuthC: This is a wonderful picture of two pelicans in flight, Chuck_FL, and you were very fortunate to capture them in this way. Wouldn't you think there was enough sky for the two of them to have their own space??? I notice that the pelican at the top of the picture has a fishing hook and swivel caught in one of its feathers. :-( I think they are beautiful birds, and you've captured them with great clarity and detail. A well-deserved top place. Ruth :-)
Wow Ruth I'm amazed you saw that. I'd like to have you along when looking for insects to shoot.
What an extraordinary shot. I love the tunnel in the trees and the yellow/gold color of the leaves.
Barbara C Richardson: Beautiful photo of a beautiful little bird!!! Really wish they would come over to SC!!! :-)
Thank You Barbara. I'm lucky that some Rufous will winter in Texas instead of moving all the way into Mexico. This is a particularly colorful Male that I was trying to bring out the color in the shot. It is really something to see with the naked eye. For those that like birds, that is ;).
The Mick: Great shot. With the wide array of awesome hummingbird images you have acquired, you should make some calendars to give to your family and friends. ...And hopefully you consider me a friend. ;o)Thanks for sharing your photos.Mick
Thanks Mick. A calender sounds good. If I weren't so Lazy I'd do that. I barely can stand Post Processing my shots. The part I really enjoy is being in/with nature.
