What's the bird's cut?
Birddogman: Thanks again.
The color version looks like this (not sure how to post pics in a reply, so this is a link):
I'm not a B&W worshipper, but for this image, I much prefer the B&W version.
The sky just is what it is - here are a few other pics shot that same day afield thaat might give a feel fro what the sky looked like:
Greg, Chase and Joy
I agree, the black and white is better than the color.
I asked about the sky because it looks like it was cloned in places in order to cover high tension wires.
Nice photo! Well deserved 1st place. But what's up with that sky??
35mil stock images. $22 and change per image.
Doesn't say where ShareGrid extracts their fee.
Daniel L: There's nothing special about pay to get in, pay to get more "ray of light" and pay more to do more, again and again photo.... especially on a scene that never changed - That's Antelope Canyon for people that never been there before. Everyone has to pay to get the picture, you just have to go at the right time of the year.
Nothing more than joining a photograph-tour shooting on a rare captive snow leopard in a zoo.
@WellyNZ - lol!
"... as a way to help the visually impaired better interpret photographs ..."
There it is. The Do No Evil disclaimer. We're good.
I thought for sure this would be in the top three. Nice image!
massimogori: Yes, amazing... example of journalism. Which Natural History museum? Imagine a newspaper writing an article about the murder of "John" rather than "Kennedy".
@Lan - Thanks for clarifying. I thought surely the Natural History Museum at Tring (formerly the Walter Rothschild Zoological Museum).
Nicely photographed. Congrats.
Artpt: I once found myself lost and roaming around Moshi, Tanzania for 30 minutes..I never forgot how that felt....
My hats off to his sense of adventure...and of course his talent....also for the special harness to support such melon sized yarbals while bicycling all over world...
Here is the updated press release from the US Forest Service website. I've yet to find the actual directive, either before of after the clarification.
(unknown member): Sounds fair to me.
Care to expand?
Streetutopia: Great idea. If someone is going to 'mine' public resources for their own personal financial gain, they SHOULD pay to do that. Even the 5 painted Victorians along Alamo Square in San Francisco copyrighted their homes to stop people from profiting from making postcards of their property.
Erick L: They could cut cost by reducing the ridiculous amount of packaging.
Erick L - Absolutely spot on. The packaging pile is larger heavier than the camera.
Checking eBay the latest model is for sale at a premium, or bundled with extras for an above premium. All the others are last year's model or older. Could be a sign that everyone is upgrading to the latest.
dr8: if by "losses" they figure 'em like the rest of corporate America, then that simply means - 'Hey, we did not make as much PROFIT as we thought/planned/hoped/told our investors/ we would.' - It does not mean that actual $$$ left their pockets....as is pointed out that profit was 1 cent MORE per share than what "analysts" THOUGHT it would be.
@pavi1 - Generally Accepted Accounting Principles. Are you in-the-know about something they reported?
69chevy: "The winning photo just makes it very clear why banning drones from national parks is a very good idea."
Calm down Chicken Little...
The only thing clear is that someone took a picture of a bird.
Calm down Higuel
The drone photographer might have been using a 450mm lens.
