    Thanks for the comments, everybody. Back in early 2005, I bought an Olympus C8080WZ to complement my digital SLRs and serve as a conveniently sized travel camera. I didn't have it for very long -- ...
  • Going through some old stuff. Fountain by the Sea

    I love those golden ribbons.
  • Nice piece of driftwood and it looks great against the gray sand. I love the composition. I don't care for the text but that's just personal taste. I look forward to your explanation of why ...
  • Replied in Morning Mist
    I wouldn't say too grainy to keep. It's a nice image and the grain probably can be adjusted/mitigated with noise reduction software and used as a design element. As it is, I find the grain a bit ...
  • Replied in * The Swamp *
    I agree with the suggestions of cropping off the partial trunk on the left edge and a bit off the bottom. Those are pretty nice cypress knees.
  • I like the one with three birds best but I'm bothered by the rectangular object on the right-hand edge of the image. I think I would clone it out, rather than crop, because I like the aspect ratio ...
  • As a photographer, particularly when doing landscapes and scenics, this is my objective. Eye-catching color and composition that grabs the viewer's attention, accompanied by explorable detail that ...
  • Thanks, Lou. It was a fleeting moment and I was lucky to capture it.
  • Thanks, Mike. Good idea.
  • Thanks, Mike, for the thoughtful analysis and appraisal. I agree about that OOF branch, of course. Avoiding clutter is the biggest challenge in photographing the nest activity. This image was ...
  • Thanks, Andrew. Their attention is probably driven more by hunger than by interest in preening or wing maintenance. :-)
  • Thanks, Roel. I have dozens of images like that other one (the great egret with green lore (signifying readiness to mate)). Those images can be quite beautiful when the light is right.
  • I think this is a fantastic image. Its colors cover most of the spectrum and its lines collaborate beautifully, leading me to the focal point where the two shores overlap. It's loaded with ...
  • I like the way the fern lures the viewer in to discover the cedar trunk in the background but, as others have mentioned, I think it would be better with a little more luminance and detail in that ...
  • I see this as a fine piece of political commentary.

    Beautiful image, Andrew. The textural detail in the petals is beautifully rendered and I love the subtlety of the foliage. Outstanding.

    These images work very well as a pair. As others have said, an either/or or before/after theme is implied.
  • Basic Wing Maintenance This time of year, some of the big wading birds come to a rookery near my home and work on making the next generation. And I *do* mean "work." They start out looking dapper ...

    It's a great photo exactly as it is but I think I would want to crop a bit if cropping would leave enough resolution for your desired print size. I think I like Zin's crop suggestion.
