About me:

I'm a big fan of the rock band, Rush, photography (on/off since '83) motorcycles. I live just outside of Ruskin and I'm enjoying the slower pace of a small town and the beauty and warmth that Florida has to offer. Photography is just a hobby for me so I don't take it real serious with a lot of post editing to make every picture I post the very best they can be or what some others think it should be like. Ya just can't please everyone so I make them only one way and hope for the best. Besides, photography is just a hobby for most anyway and shouldn't be taken so seriously.

Congrats on your win, it's well deserved with a shot like that. I can't even capture the chickens fighting over corn, let alone eagles over fish. I'm going back to bed....

Congrats. Bear that in mind ... anyone, no matter their eyesight or qualifications to judge, is allowed to judge.

I constantly see pictures with imperfections on web sites. It seems to be very common with digital pictures, so I don't let it bother me so much. Nice shot and congrats!
