Hmm, I wonder if they bought most of the lens elements off Canon.

On photo DSC_9643 in the Best Photo of the Week challenge (5 comments in total)

The details and lighting make this outstanding compared to a lot of other hummer shots I see on the net which almost look fake. Very natural and congrats, it's a gorgeous shot, superb details and colours. I sure wish we had them here.

Listen to him Ben, he makes sense. Looking at your shots Ben, you have a fair bit to learn and that's just a time thing. We all started somewhere and we all learn't along the way. Comments like yours don't help your case in anyway. It's a shame to see really.

Now where's that whiskey ;-)

Macro guy: One thing you got to give Jarred is that he never misses an opportunity to exploit: Whether it's his mother, his grandmother or his neighbor, Jarred is right there, trying to capitalize on whatever is in front of him, whether it's pain, suffering, death - he's right there, using it to help his career.

Very well said and how true that is. Good on ya. He is envious and it sticks out a mile.

Well, simply GORGEOUS. Brilliant work and shots no matter what others may say. I looked at a few galleries from the nay sayers, hmmmm ;-) A great read as well Clay, love it. Congrats.

You really shouldn't be envious or bitter about someone who can do what he did. It's a shame you feel that way. Envy is not a good look ;)

It's the memories this article brings through the photos and text. I think we all must know of someone at least. At my age I've known a few and one was young. It hurts, but the memories often make me smile and so do the old photos taken. These shots are very strong as are the words, the way it should be.

Sorry to family and friends, treasure these photos, they are very special. Excellent work Jared, not easy I know, but it's there what should be there.

Obviously you are fairly new to it or digital and you really are not doing yourself any favours here, unless you want to talk about subject isolation, apertures, composition, etc. You need to stop.

That's an excellent head on shot. Great to see. I don't think Ben gets it or takes shots like that. Darn nice work Martin.

In reply to:

jimipalmr: So once again, ideally, it comes down to time and money. Time and money can create amazing photos ;)

You need to stop, you sound so envious and all you need to do is admire these brilliant shots. Envy is not a good thing to show in a forum or post.
