Tom, I'll just echo everyone else... what terrific shots! I like #5 especially, with the rock outcropping, rushing water, mist, and GBH floating in peacefully for a landing. Crawfish series yesterday was great too, by the way. For us entry-level folks, it's reminder to think about the setting and 'story' too - as if there wasn't already enough to think about!


Thank you, John, for those kind words.  Just remember, even a blind hog finds an acorn sometimes! Regarding your comments, I always try to remember two key points:

1.  "If your pictures aren't good enough; you're not close enough." and,

2.  "One of the challenges of good photography is being able to tell a story through a single frame."  In this case, there were a few frames, but I think you get the point of those wise words from Dewitt Jones, I believe.

In my best shots, I can look at those and it clearly brings back the whole story of where I was, and what was going on when I got the shot.  Those are the real keepers!
