Re: Minne's NEW 2019 52

for these birds I think the lighting is too different, the trees are mostly silhouette, get some silhouette birds and try blend if.. All I'd have to do is render them as shot instead of raising the shadows. I'll try it. They were in the same light, but I doggedly tried to get some of their whitenes...

Re: Lunar Eclipse 1/20/19 Composite

I've seen these posted by others but never even imagined how they constructed it. Nicely done. It looks like a lot of work! Love that delicate progression of color throughout the series.

Re: Blood Wolf Moon

That’s just gorgeous Martha! I’m so jealous! Mine were not nearly this lovely. The 3 dimensional look of this image is mesmerizing.

Happy New Year!

Yes I think your blending of the birds needs more attention.....but I like the overall feel of the image and find no issue with composition..nice vision.
I agree. One hazard is that the bird picture isn't much good, had to raise ISO too much. "blend if"?

Re: Minne's NEW 2019 52

Theme of Bare Branches - I will probably have more than one since bare branches is all I have to take pictures of right now. This one I'm not happy with, it's a combination of a straight up shot and a straight down shot (reflection) with local pelicans sailing by overhead, from another shot, all tak...

Re: bird in hand series

During the summer we got pretty close to that. I could strech out on a chair and put a plate with seed on it on my lap or chest.. I can see that it is possible. I am hopeless taking pictures with a phone/tablet, but my camera has wireless and I can control it with an app. And using live-view (or wh...

Re: bird in hand series

Fun stuff. Hi Ernst, the idea and doing the processing is fun... but taking pictures of my hand is a Pain! Stretching one hand in front while the other has to hold the camera and push the shutter and I have to use the viewfinder to see/compose the shot. I am thinking I need to be less Lazy and use ...

Re: Meet Zeke

LOL - that is too funny, I am not familiar with Wiemies - but am very familiar with labs. I would say - Labs are crazy things!!!! And they love food - so don't let him get too fat, and food is likely your best training tool, besides the natural affection and desire to please you that he will have. ...
